Did Melania Trump Have A Facelift?

When cosmetic surgery rumors emerge about celebrities and prominent people, only the person themselves can formally confirm the rumors. Former first lady Melania Trump—when addressing cosmetic surgery rumors—has denied having any work done over the entirety of her modeling career and as she has gotten older. However, it is not uncommon for celebrities to keep any cosmetic procedures they have done under wraps. So, are there other signs as to if Melania Trump has gone under the knife for a facelift Raleigh, NC?


Experts agree that compared to many other celebrities, Melania has had minimal cosmetic surgery. However, many point out that she has seemed to undergo various injectables throughout the years. Compared to her younger days, Melania’s cheeks appear fuller which does not commonly happen with age. This could be an indication of cheek fillers combined with fat descension due to aging.


Most experts agree that Melania likely has not undergone a facelift—yet. At 53, she is still on the younger side of the average facelift age range. It is unlikely that she underwent a facelift before age 50, especially since it appears she has seen only minimal jowling and sagging along the lower face and neck. This could be due to a number of factors such as genetics, good and likely professional skincare, and small cosmetic touch-ups.


There is one cosmetic surgery that both experts and the general public agree Melania likely had done: a rhinoplasty. At some point in her thirties, many point out that Melania’s nose appears subtly thinner. The result is not overly noticeable and most praise the work of the surgeon if she did in fact have a nose job. However, nose jobs are very common for women of all ages, and most agree that the result was phenomenal and benefited her.


As previously noted, Melania has not confirmed that she has had any cosmetic procedures done at any point in her life. However, any surgical work she had done is well performed, subtle, and suits her. It seems it is more likely that Melania—or her provider—got a bit overzealous with injectables at various points. Luckily, injectables are temporary—and in the case of hyaluronic acid fillers—reversible.


As Melania ages, she may choose to seek out a facelift surgery, but currently, it would only moderately benefit her. While she could probably undergo a mini facelift, it likely would lead to a less natural result or an overdone appearance. If she has a facelift, it is likely best to wait a few years until her neck and lower face begin to more significantly.



Has Melania Trump ever had a facelift? We cannot know for sure, but according to Melania, no. Many experts back up her claims when it comes to facelift surgery, but not other procedures like a nose job and various injectables like Botox and filler. Regardless, other than a few instances of potential overfilling, Melania appears to be aging fairly well and comfortable with her aging appearance. No matter a patient’s choice to undergo a facelift Raleigh, NC or not, aging gracefully can take many forms.
