A lot of years have passed since LeAnn Rimes rose to fame as a 13-year-old country music hitmaker, but appearance-wise, they’ve been good to LeAnn. “I’ve worked very hard for everything I have and nothing has come easy,” says the star, 35, who has never publicly copped to going under the knife or getting injections.

But, observes NYC plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Neinstein — who, like the other experts quoted in this article, hasn’t worked with LeAnn — “She has subtly enhanced her features with age. She seems to be using Botox to keep a soft, gentle, age-appropriate look.”

Board-certified NYC dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg says, “She looks better now than she did when she was younger,” but he think there’s one area that could use work: “I would add just a touch of volume to her lips.” Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Josef Hadeed, on the other hand, thinks LeAnn and her doctors shouldn’t change a thing. “I would not do anything differently on her,” he says. “She is aging well. She still looks great!”

Dr. Goldenberg says her forehead is “smooth and without wrinkles,” which could mean Botox ($900–$1.2K). Another possibility: laser resurfacing ($1.5K–$5K).


“In the earlier photo, LeAnn has excess skin under her eyes,” notes Dr. Hadeed. He suspects she’s had eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) at a cost of $4.2K–$5.6K.


With skin this perfect, Dr. Neinstein concludes that LeAnn “probably had laser resurfacing” ($5K). Dr. Goldenberg adds, “She doesn’t have a lot of signs of sun damage on the face.”


LeAnn’s smile lines “don’t appear to be as prominent now,” says Dr. Hadeed, which could mean she had filler injections in that area. (Cost: $600–$1.2K.)
