Did Portia de Rossi Undergo Plastic Surgery?
Portia de Rossi, the spouse of popular talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, is the subject of much plastic surgery talk over the years. Her appearance in 2013 sparked talk about her having had a brow life, Botox injections and even a nose job. Besides the plastic surgery rumors, Portia has also struggled with anorexia since her 20s, having at one point holding only a weight of 82 pounds in her 5 foot 8 frame.
Portia de Rossi is a popular Australian American actress who has played many roles. Some of her more prominent roles include Nelle Porter (a lawyer) on the TV series Ally McBeal and as Lindsay Funke on the drama Arrested Development. She is still currently active in the entertainment circuit, with her latest role as Elizabeth North in Scandal. Now approaching age 44, it is natural that Portia de Rossi would want to enhance her looks to capitalise on more acting opportunities that may arise.
Portia de Rossi and Nose Job Rumors
Nose jobs have consistently ranked high on the list of popular plastic surgeries in the United States. Many people who undergo a nose job, or rhinoplasty, want a nose that is more balanced with the rest of the face. It is not surprising that most want a smaller nose, with a narrower nose bridge and a sharper nose tip.
Portia de Rossi before and after pictures show that she had a nose reshaping exercise. Her nose used to be pointing downwards but her recent photos show a slightly upturned nose tip. Such obvious change could not have come from natural evolution. But since Portia has never admitted to having a nose job, it is not right for us to draw a definite conclusion.

Portia de Rossi and Eyelid Surgery
Another popular plastic surgery is eyelid surgery, or commonly known as blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery is commonly used to reduce the wrinkles around the eyes. It is also used to make the eyes bigger and remove the excess folds of skin in the upper and lower eyelids.
For Portia de Rossi, some observers think that she might have undergone eyelid surgery as her current eyes look wider and bigger. However, the clever use of make up can also enable a person’s eyes to look bigger. And it will not be surprising that Portia has a fantastic makeup artist. As such, even if her eyes look bigger and with less wrinkles, it is hard to conclude if she underwent eyelid surgery.
Here is a series of pictures to show the changes of Portia de Rossi Over the years. Do you see much difference in the way she looks?
Portia de Rossi and Botox Injection Rumors
Botox is one of the most convenient solutions for anyone who want to take years off their face. It is effective against fine lines and wrinkles. However, over application of Botox can result in unnatural and lumpy look. Having lumps instead of wrinkles is not a good trade off. Despite some noteworthy disastrous botox outcomes, many celebrities still want a shot a botox.
For Portia de Rossi, close observers feel that Portia’s forehead looks too smooth for a 43 year old. While it is the norm for users of botox to tackle their forehead wrinkles, it cannot form a definite conclusion on botox use.
Furthermore, Portia de Rossi still have a natural looking face with no signs of a bloating face. Some say her thin frame helps to conceal the “bloating effect” of Botox but we feel otherwise. Even if she did use Botox, her plastic surgeon has done a good job by making sure botox is not administered excessively.
Portia de Rossi and Lip Filler Rumors
Having thicker and plumper lips seems to be on the top 10 wishlist of ladies. Nobody knows when this pout trout trend started. Nowadays, lip fillers are commonly used by celebrities. The effects of lip fillers are not permanent. The effects will wear away with time.
For Portia de Rossi, lip fillers seem absent from her recent photos. Her lips look natural and not bloated at all. So, the rumor that she had undergone lip filler injections cannot be substantiated.
Overall, Portia de Rossi has maintained her good looks throughout the years. Her changes over the years have been subtle and there are no signs of any obvious plastic surgery. Even if there are changes, the changes were for the better. Perhaps the only concern her fans have is her anorexia problem. Other than that, Portia de Rossi is still as beautiful ten years ago.
