Rumors about Tori Amos (born Myra Ellen Amos on August 22, 1963) and her bad plastic surgery procedures abound from sources ranging from celebrity watchers to curious fans who wonder how the alternative singer manages to create such a unique look in her late 40s.
When Tori Amos first came onto the music scene she gained some notoriety for being the only female alternative artist whose main instrument was a piano.
And though she’s been known to have strange looks both on and off stage, almost a prerequisite for the most famous of the almost-famous, there are people who think that her newest look couldn’t be done without bladed intervention.
Tori Amos Plastic Surgery Rumors
Those who have been comparing Tori Amos’ latest photos to those taken of the star when she was younger are raising their eyebrows; even further than Tori did.
Some of the things people have noticed as that the distinctive bump on the end of Tori’s nose is gone, a common enough rhinoplasty procedure and that her eyebrows are now higher than they were before. Even her eyes appear to have taken on a different shape, which can be achieved by plastic surgery on the eyelids to reshape the appearance of the eye.
Now with other singers and actresses, these claims can be put down to youth maturing and changing (see also Gwyneth Paltrow cosmetic surgery). However, in Tori’s case, she’s reached her middle age so it can hardly be youth blossoming into full womanhood.
Of course it should be kept in mind that different lighting, altered camera angles, application of cosmetics and even the subject’s hairstyle or the clothes she happens to be wearing can all create a different and unique look for her face.
However, the speculation is that even accounting for all of these potential explanations added together, Tori Amos still seems to have gotten her latest looks from a surgeon’s scalpel.
Tori Amos Before & After – Opinions of Surgeons
Make Me Heal, a website dedicated to celebrity plastic surgery before and after procedures, spoke to several plastic surgeons that weighed in on Tori Amos’ latest, plastic pixie look.
Dr. Paul Nassif, a facial plastic and re-constructive specialist, said that it was possible Tori Amos had gotten an eyebrow lift and that her nose had been sculpted to give it the more streamlined look it now possesses.
Dr. Sherrell Aston said, “she looks like she’s undergone a brow lift,” along with botox injections and possibly a neck lift as well. None of the doctors spoken to performed a surgery, but their professional opinions all seemed to agree that plastic surgery was a definite explanation for the singer’s appearance.
Of course, plastic surgery has long been a standby of Hollywood. Even back in you grandparents’ day the stars knew where to go to get a cosmetic pick-me-up, with famous faces like Marilyn Monroe (see Marilyn Monroe plastic surgery) partially created with the help of a gifted surgeon’s knife.
Tori Amos is just the latest in a long line of famous faces that may have been augmented (or probably, if you listen to some of the speculators on Amos’ appearance), but at this point it’s practically a tradition.
And while she might be unusual and alternative, would you really blame her if Tori Amos became a plastic surgery celebrity as a way to help her career and continue doing what she was for her fans?
Tori Amos’ Video Comparisons
It’s also worth looking at before and after videos in order to see how Tori Amos may have changed.
Believe it or not, in 2011, Tori Amos is only a couple of years away from 50 so we have the benefit of nearly 20 years of video to consider.
Below, we’ve found an excellent video compilation from 1992.
Here she is being interviewed by Gloria Hunniford in 2002, 10 years later, talking about everything from life in the UK, 9/11, New York…
And, a further 9 years on, another interview on the launch of her new album in 2011 where she talks to BBC Television.
There’s clearly some differences between the videos but may be not quite as marked as the pictures shown on this page.
