After winning two mirror ball trophies, Dancing With the Stars pro Peta Murgatroyd has her eyes on winning a third with her current partner Nick Lachey. While her dance skills are impeccable on the ABC competition show, it is her transformation from past seasons that is sparking plastic surgery rumors. Just months after welcoming her son Shai with husband and fellow dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy — she is already back on the dance floor looking better than ever.
So, did the Australian beauty go under the knife to get camera-ready? According to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Miller, who has never treated Peta, her seemingly different appearance is due to makeup, not cosmetic surgery.

However, Dr. Vartan Mardirossian, a certified facial plastic surgeon who also does not list Peta as a client, attributes her transformation to what appears to be a Botox browlift and possible fillers to the cheeks and lips.
Peta has never addressed plastic surgery rumors, but she has been very open about her post-baby body on Instagram — reminding fans that it’s not always easy to bounce back after a pregnancy. She’s been candid about the long journey that awaits new mothers.

“Many people think a woman should shrink right back to her pre-birth weight immediately,” she wrote. “That is just not the truth for most. The female body is incredible and resilient, but healing and strengthening take time. Now it’s time for patience and hard work. Lots of love to all the new mamas out there on the journey.” Bye, haters!
