Across her journey in the spotlight, admirers have not only witnessed her creative growth but also observed shifts in her outward appearance.

She may have undergone major dental work.

In a heartfelt video, Dr. Gary Linkov, a plastic surgeon based in New York City, conducted a thorough examination of Britney Spears’ evolution using a series of photos spanning her career. In his YouTube analysis, the doctor began with images of Spears at the age of 17 in 1998, drawing attention to her naturally youthful attributes such as her luminous complexion and lively eyes. He underscored the beauty of her nose and full cheeks, which were indicative of her youthful radiance.

As the years progressed, he noted changes in her smile, suggesting she may have undergone dental work around 2002. «In 2003 at the age of 22, Britney it seems to me has gotten some form of veneers. Her teeth have a different shape and color compared to prior [photos].» In the photos from the year 2004 to 2010, he didn’t find any changes in her appearance that would suggest plastic surgery.

She had a bad experience with Botox.

In a candid Instagram post, Britney Spears, aged 42, bared her soul, expressing profound regret over her past experience with Botox. She admitted to trying it years ago in New York City, only to find it ineffective. Reflecting on the ordeal, she confessed it had been a disastrous experience for her, forcing her to seclude herself for two weeks.

Continuing her revelation, Britney Spears shared how her Botox ordeal left her deeply disheartened. Witnessing her friends’ sisters laugh about similar mishaps led her to ponder how they would react if they were in her position. While eyebrow mishaps are often depicted humorously, experiencing them firsthand left Britney in tears. She couldn’t shake the uncertainty of when the effects would finally wear off.

Her nose looks slimmer.


Fans have long speculated about whether Britney Spears underwent a nose job around 2014. Dr. Linkov addressed this speculation, suggesting that in 2014, Britney might have indeed undergone a rhinoplasty. He noted the apparent narrowing of her nose bridge during that period compared to previous years.

Dr. Linkov explained that in such procedures, surgeons typically break the nose bones to achieve a narrower appearance. Additionally, he observed that the tip and wings of Britney’s nose appeared slimmer post-2014. Furthermore, in 2015, he identified «signs of a brow lift» in her appearance.

She might have fillers, experts say.

Dr. Linkov also suggested that Britney Spears may have begun receiving lip filler treatments. He then analyzed a photo of Spears from 2018, when she was 37, observing that it appeared she had discontinued Botox injections by that time. As a result, he noted the emergence of more wrinkles and lines, typical signs of natural aging that are typically masked by Botox treatments.

However, the following year, Dr. Linkov speculated that Britney might have commenced receiving filler injections in her cheeks and under-eye areas. He noted, «To me, the cheeks are more full, especially medially where she — in the past when she was younger — had that volume and lost some of it with aging.» He analyzed red carpet pics of her from 2019 and made a conclusion, «It looks like she’s gotten some of that back, and the under-eyes to me also look less hollow.»

In 2021, when the mother of two celebrated her 40th birthday, Dr. Linkov suspected that she may have received additional cheek filler, this time focusing more on the outer part of her cheeks.

Each individual makes decisions about changes in their appearance, but the pivotal moment lies in learning to love oneself first. By embracing their uniqueness, whether through hairstyles or subtle enhancements, they come to realize that self-acceptance is the cornerstone of authentic transformation.
