Under the knife? Miranda Lambert was looking better than ever at the 2018 ACM Awards —sparking plastic surgery rumors among viewers. However, this is nothing new for the “Little Red Wagon” singer. Miranda’s changing body has been a major topic of discussion since before her divorce from Blake Shelton back in 2015.
After her dramatic 45-pound weight loss in 2013, the 34-year-old was bombarded with claims of liposuction, but the singer was quick to combat the allegations. In a letter posted to fans on her website, the country singer set the record straight. “Though I NEVER care what the tabloids have to say about me I wanted to address this certain story they are running this week and set the record straight. I DID NOT have surgery to lose weight,” she said. “That is ridiculous.” Despite her denial, fans are still quick to point out Miranda’s much slimmer face, as well as her more defined nose, as proof she went under the knife.

Life & Style reached out to plastic surgery experts for their opinion on the blonde beauty — and most agree that if she undergo cosmetic surgery, the changes were natural and subtle. “She looks to be aging well. Her wrinkle free forehead suggests that she may be using Botox. Also the area under her eyes onto her cheeks looks to be fuller, so injectable fillers may have been used,” Dr. Andrew Miller, New Jersey’s top plastic surgeon, suggested. Florida surgeon Dr. Vartan Mardirossian agreed, adding in a possible rhinoplasty.
Plastic surgery claims aside, Miranda just hopes to be a body positive role model for her fans. “As for the assumed number of pounds lost…? I don’t even know! Like I have always said, it’s not about a scale, it’s about how you feel and how your jeans fit,” she added. “I am proud to be a normal size girl and I want to encourage everyone to be confident at any size.”
