Nominations in the Emmy Awards became the norm for Mindy Kaling. In 2010, her show was nominated for the Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series for “Niagara”. Her reputation was building up fast.
In the photo below taken in 2010, Mindy Kaling showed off a new hairdo. She stuck with her choice of big earrings. Her eye bags were starting to show. Still free from plastic surgery though.
But some observers suggest that she might have undergone a nose job by now as her nose bridge looked slightly thinner. The difference in her nose shape could have been due to a different camera angle. What do you think?

Mindy Kaling received more recognition for her performances in 2012. It was the year The Mindy Project was born.
She won the Critic’s Choice Television Awards for Most Exciting New Series. The show was also nominated for the Favourite New TV Comedy for the People’s Choice Awards.
Below is a photo taken while Mindy Kaling was attending the Fox All-Star Party. She had her hair straightened. Notice how her eye bags magically disappeared. There was talk about Mindy Kaling eyelid surgery. However, no one can confirm that other than Mindy Kaling herself.
There were still no visible changes to the nose. However, her lips started to look consistently thicker than during her younger days. Lip fillers use perhaps?

Deservingly so, Kaling was also named by Time as one of the 100 Most Influential People In The World.
In the photo below, Mindy Kaling experimented with lighter color makeup. Her face looked lighter in color. However, the thick base seemed to make her look slightly unnatural. There were no wholesale changes to her face.
And her eye bags were making a comeback.
Mindy Kaling in 2014 – Recognition as Female Leading Actress
Other than an individual award in 2007 for Supporting Television Actress, Mindy Kaling won the Outstanding Female Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Award in the Gracie Awards.
In the photo below, Mindy Kaling decided to wear more neutral and lighter colors for her makeup. Her experiment with more earthly lip stick color was a huge success.
She was still noticeably struggling to keep her eye bags at bay. We wonder why would anyone suggest that Mindy Kaling underwent a nose job. Her nose shape remained the same over the years.
Mindy Kaling in 2015 – Need to Fix Those Eye Bags?
Other than television shows, Mindy Kaling was involved in several films too. In 2015, she was the voice for Disgust in the Pixar animated film, Inside Out.
The photo below was taken during the premiere of Inside Out. This time, Mindy Kaling opted for a short hair bob for a change.

Mindy Kaling And Abdominoplasty Rumors
Another sticky plastic surgery rumour is the Mindy Kaling Abdominoplasty rumour. Abdominoplasty is generally used to reshape the abdominal area of a person, making it look for shapely and “thinner”.
Commonly also known as the “tummy tuck”, it involves the removal of excess skin an fat from the middle and lower abdomen. The end result is a much tighter tummy area.
When you take a look at Mindy Kaling’s before and after photos, you can see that there isn’t much difference at her abdomen area. Her hip bone remains the same and there are no signs of a tummy tuck at all. Take a look at the pictures below
Mindy Kaling and Breast Augmentation
There were also talk online about a possible breast reduction done on Mindy Kaling. Did Mindy Kaling go for breast reduction surgery?
For a woman to undergo breast reduction surgery, her boobs have to be big. For Mindy Kaling, here tits were nothing much to shout about. So, why should she bother to undergo and breast reduction surgery?
When you look at her before and after photos below, you can see that her boobs size did not change. Who in the right mind would make her breasts look smaller when they have small boobs?
Overall, Mindy Kaling did not undergo plastic surgery. Such cruel rumours might be planted by netizens who are jealous of her success.
The list of Mindy Kaling plastic surgeries such as the eyelid surgery, nose job, breast augmentation surgery and tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) are largely unproven. The only possible plastic surgery is the use of lip fillers. Even so, that is highly unlikely.
Such plastic surgery rumours are just speculations. Till the day Mindy Kaling admits to plastic surgery procedures, she will remain a natural beauty in our eyes. We prefer to enjoy her humour than to shower more plastic surgery talk. What do you think of Mindy Kaling plastic surgery rumours? True or False?
