Chrissy Teigen, one of the best-known beauties of today and a model thousands of women look up to, might have disappointed some of her fans last Friday after revealing there is more than genes to her appearance. In a talk with a group of beauty editors, the 31-year-old revealed she has had extensive surgeries on her face and body, Byrdie reports.

According to the beauty website, Teigen said “Everything about me is fake except my cheeks,” before pointing to her lips, nose and forehead, saying: “fake, fake, fake”.
The mother-of-one also revealed the feature many until now believed was subjected to surgery – her cheeks – are actually completely natural. She also admitted having gotten veneers placed on her teeth as well as getting liposuction on her armpits about nine years ago.
“I had my armpit sucked out,” she told someone who asked about the craziest treatment she had ever received. Although she called it the ‘dumbest’ thing she has ever done, Teigen said the procedure added two inches of length to her arms and made her feel more confident while wearing sleeveless shirts.
“It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly,” the 31-year-old said. She also revealed she would have no qualms about repeating the procedure, as its effects are not permanent.

New York City dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, was asked to evaluate Teigen’s photos and identify all the possible procedures the model has undertaken. The doctor said it is ‘quite possible’ Chrissy had Botox injected in her forehead and around her eyes.
“Botox helps prevent wrinkling during facial expression, and even though she’s smiling in the photos, her forehead is smooth and her crows feet are diminished,” Dr. Nazarian told the DailyMail.
Nazarian said Teigen’s lips look ‘fuller and plumper’, which “likely means she had hyaluronic acid injections done for enhancement. Fillers can help stimulate collagen and lead to semi-permanent volume.”
Evaluating the evolution of the model’s plump cheeks, the physician said: “Although she specifically states she’s never done anything to her cheeks, her cheeks look much fuller as she’s gotten older, which is usually not typical for aging. Many patients also inject hyaluronic acid into the cheeks and under the eyes for a fuller more youthful appearance.”

The mother-of-one has also spoken out about body image in the past, criticizing retailer Forever 21 for their refusal to work with her in the past due to her body shape.
“They booked me directly when I was much younger and I showed up on set, they asked me if they could take a photo,” she told Du Jour magazine.
“And they shot that photo off to my agency who then calls me as I’m sitting in the makeup chair and they say, ‘You need to leave right now, they just said you are fat and you need to come get your measurements taken.'”
Speaking about how the incident had affected her, Teigen added: “I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much, honestly, you are the worst.”
