We have encountered a lot of Korean celebrities who have undergone plastic surgery, especially those in the Korean pop industry. For this article, we are going to tackle one of Girls Generation’s vocals, Kim Taeyeon. Particularly, we’re going to talk about Kim Taeyeon plastic surgery and how it changed her whole look for the better.
Kim Taeyeon, also known mononymously as Taeyeon, is a South Korean singer and part of the power girl group SNSD or Girls Generation. Because of her powerful vocals, she is one of the group’s lead singers. Aside from that, she is also the group’s leader.
Kim Taeyeon plastic surgery has been surrounded by many rumors and speculation. We think this is because her face changed so much ever since she began training at SM Entertainment. There is no doubt that she had undergone plastic surgery because when you compare her before and after pictures, you will see a great difference.
Let us speculate her features one by one so that we may shed light on Taeyeon plastic surgery.
Taeyeon’s Nose Job
When she was in middle school and high school, Taeyeon had an unattractive nose. Her nose before was slightly bulbous in shape and quite blunt at the end. Obviously, this wasn’t going to work for her if she wanted to be a K-Pop star. Thus, a nose job was the solution for Kim Taeyeon.
Her nose job included redefining the shape of her nose such that the sides are thinner and more defined. This obviously worked well for her because her current nose is much more elegant than before, much more fitting for a K-Pop star.
On the other hand, her nose transformation also included a tiplasty. If you look at the tip of Taeyeon’s nose before, you will see that she had a blunt nose tip. Her plastic surgeon corrected this so that she will be more attractive. Thus, she has been given a sharper nose tip that would match the rest of her current nose.
Taeyeon’s Eyelid Surgery
Before, Taeyeon was one of the many Korean women who had a monolid or single eyelids. She had very slanted eyelids that were very far from the ideal doll-like eyes with the double eyelids. Thus, it is no surprise that she got a double eyelid surgery in order to open up her eyes a bit more.
The double eyelid surgery took some skin and tissue from the area around her eye. This allowed her eyes to pop out more and look more attractive.
On the other hand, Taeyeon also underwent a double eyelid surgery to make her eyes look bigger and more expressive than before. However, the change is not that exaggerated and from some angles, she still looks like she has single eyelids.
Taeyeon’s Jaw Surgery
From our speculation, we also suspect that the Girls Generation leader had undergone a jaw surgery. When she was younger, Kim Taeyeon had a wide set jaw with a big chin. The jaw surgery was probably supposed to make her look more feminine and delicate. If the rumor is true, then the surgery worked for her favour in the end.
Instead of a masculine jaw and chin, she now has a thinner jaw with a more pronounced V-shape like Im Yoona. Along with that, she also has a smaller chin that makes her face look more effeminate. This is somehow necessary since she is part of an all-girl group that is expected to look girly and pretty.
Again, this is just a speculation, but it looks like Kim Taeyeon has had lip injections done as well. The basis for this rumor is her predebut pictures wherein she has thin lips. We think that she may have had lip injections in order to improve her look.
The lip injections are much more obvious on her lower lip where it became thicker than before.
Kim Taeyeon plastic surgery including all the procedures she underwent can be said to have improved her look for the better. Fortunately, her plastic surgeon/s is talented enough so that her plastic surgery looks somehow natural.
