Did Tamar Braxton Undergo Plastic Surgery?
Tamar Braxton, the younger sister of Toni Braxton, is widely speculated to have undergone the knife. Some the alleged plastic surgery procedures include nose job, breast implants, facial fillers and even skin bleaching. However, it is not fair to assume that Tamar has undergone such extensive procedures before checking out her before and after photos.
Tamar Braxton is an American singer, television personality and actress. One of the greatest achievements in music is the founding of the R&B group The Braxtons, which included her sister Toni Braxton. In 2011, Tamar had her biggest break on television when she starred in a series called Braxton Family Values. It was so successful that it ranked Number 1 on WE tv. Tamar is currently married to Vincent Herbert and has a boy Logan Vincent Herbert, born in 2013.
With her many roles in the entertainment industry, coupled with motherhood, it is no surprise that Tamar Braxton has to take better care of her appearance. Tamar has expressed that nose jobs are not a vanity process but rather a necessity for her family members. “So I’ve had a couple surgeries,” Braxton told OverIt.com. “The first time they put an implant in and I had to have it removed- so eventually they took some cartilage from my ear and put it in my nose. Oh that hurt!”
Nose jobs are one of the most delicate plastic surgeries. Any wrong adjustments will cause a major imbalance on the face. Just think of Michael Jackson. However, for Tamar Braxton, looks like she found a skilled plastic surgeon to perform the surgery. Her nose seems delicately balanced with her other facial features.
According to Tamar, she was born without cartilage in her nose, which is a rather rare condition. The condition can lead to breathing problems as one grows older into adulthood. It can also cause sudden loss of breath and extensive snoring issues. Thus, there was a need for Tamar to undergo the nose job.
If you look at the before and after photos, Tamar had a flatter and more bulbous nose. One of the most desired nose shape is a more pointed nose. Flat nose bridges is a no-no for many Hollywood celebrities. Tamar’s current nose look sharper, but not too sharp. She knows what she wants and her plastic surgeon has definitely done a great job in shaping her nose.

Another popular speculation about Tamar Braxton plastic surgery is the use of cheek fillers. Some say that Tamar has amazing lifted cheeks. Such amazing cheeks, according to some fans, cannot be the outcome of nature. They might have a point in case. However, it is also not uncommon for some people to have natural well defined cheeks. And if you look at the older photos of Tamar Braxton, her smiles are often consistent, with lifted cheeks all the time. So it is still a debate whether Tamar Braxton actually used cheek fillers.
Tamar Braxton and Breast Implants
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is breast augmentation. The reason why this is so popular is because it is believed to give a woman more confidence and pride. There is a saying that says that men cannot avoid two things in life – Death and Cleavage. In today’s society, it is important for most people to catch the attention of the other gender and this is especially true for celebrities.
Tamar Braxton, in her younger days, did not have such a voluptuous set of boobs. However, after being in the entertainment industry for a few years, her boobs have mysteriously grown in size. Could it be the result of breast augmentation? Though you can compare before and after photos, there is no admission from Tamar that she has undergone a boob job. Her fuller bust line could be due to the clever use of bra technology available nowadays.
Tamar Braxton has Denied any form of Plastic Surgery
Besides her nose job, which was necessitated by her nose structure, Tamar Braxton has vehemently denied all the plastic surgery rumors. For the accusation of skin bleaching, Tamar explains that she suffers from vitiligo, a condition that causes pigmentation loss, much like what the late Michael Jackson was suffering from.
“I used to sit on my hands, ‘cause it’s really bad on my hands,” Tay Tay dished, before adding that she also used to tan herself to hide her condition, before finally embracing her flaws.
Tamar shared “Anybody with skin issues knows that that’s a very sensitive subject. And that’s why I’ve never shared that I have Vitiligo, because I do. I’ve always had it, since I was a young girl. It’s not as bad as others because everybody has it differently, but I’ve certainly had mine diagnosed. That’s why I tan. People say, “You bleach your skin!” But I tan just so I can have a better tone on my skin, boo!
It’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten pregnant. If you shake my hand now, to me it’s more noticeable. But when you get diagnosed with a skin disorder, it’s hard. It does weigh on your self-esteem. It really does. But I’m done defending that. I’m not bleaching my skin and if I was bleaching my skin and I felt like saying so, I would, but for the record, I am not.”
Tamar also addressed other rumors of plastic surgery that arose after her admission of her nose job. “I had no cartilage in my nose, I have a piece of cartilage from my ear put into my nose. I had a medical procedure done. I have no plastic in my nose. And when I shared that with the world, now I have Botox, and different kind of fillers. Now I touch my face, which I never touch my face…Everything is real on me. After I have my baby, I might can’t say that everything is real on me. I might get my breasts done. Who knows if my breasts gonna go down to my ankles-I can’t do that!” she said.
Tamar once posted a photo of herself 15 years apart. She insisted that she still looks the same after 15 years in an attempt to debunk the plastic surgery rumors that surround her. We have attached a copy of it below. What do you think of Tamar Braxton plastic surgery? Did Tamar really undergo the knife in pursuit of perfection?
