Chrissy Teigen is one of the most celebrated beauties of the modeling industry, but in a shocking announcement, she has revealed that her gorgeous features are not just down to good genes.
The 31-year-old model spoke to a group of beauty editors last night, and revealed she’s has extensive surgery on her face and body, as reported by Byrdie.
‘Everything about me is fake except my cheeks,’ Chrissy said. According to the website, she then pointed to her lips, nose and forehead, saying: ‘Fake, fake, fake.’

Wait, what? Gorgeous model Chrissy Teigen revealed in a shocking new interview published Friday she’s had extensive cosmetic surgery done on her face and body
How times change: The admission came as Chrissy (pictured left in a 2001 high school photo and right in February) said she’d had Botox injected in her jaws, but not for aesthetic reasons
A bit different? Chrissy (pictured in 2008 with her now-husband John Legend) insisted that her famously plump cheeks are natural – but said her lips, nose and forehead are ‘fake’
The mother of one made the revelation while being showered with compliments for her lovely cheeks, which have often prompted people to ask if she’d had implants put in.
While that part of her face is natural, the model candidly spoke about getting several other procedures done – including getting liposuction on her armpits about nine years ago.
‘I had my armpit sucked out,’ she said in reply to someone who asked what was the craziest treatment she had ever received.
The procedure, she said, added ‘two inches of length’ to her arms and made her feel more confident while wearing sleeveless shirts.
Detailing the liposuction to Refinery29, she said: ‘I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so.’
The model further explained the effects of the procedure, calling it the ‘dumbest’ thing she has ever done. She said the effects turned out not to be permanent and noted she was thinking of getting it done one more time.
‘And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again. It was so easy,’ she added.
‘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.’
Candid: ‘Everything about me is fake except my cheeks,’ Chrissy (pictured left on Monday and right in 2007) said, pointing to her lips, nose and forehead, and saying: ‘Fake, fake, fake’
Speaking out: While Chrissy (pictured in a 2004 high school photo) insisted her cheeks are natural, the model candidly spoke about getting several other procedures done
The model hasn’t previously given any indication she’d have extensive work done for cosmetic reason, but insisted she felt very comfortable talking about it publicly.
‘I’m not shy talking about that sort of thing,’ she added. ‘I have no regrets.’
Chrissy later took to Twitter to suggest that her comments were a joke, but readily confirmed the armpit procedure actually happened.
The admission came just as Chrissy said on Twitter she’d had Botox injected in her jaws, but not for aesthetic reasons.
According to Chrissy, the procedure was done to relieve jaw clenching – an ailment she blamed on President Donald Trump.
‘I also had Botox in my jaw muscle to relieve tension from constantly clinching. I was not like this before,’ she tweeted. ‘Pay my bill, POS POTUS.’
Asked in February what the craziest thing she had ever done in the name of beauty was, the model previously revealed she’d had veneers put on her teeth.
‘I shaved away my teeth and made them into little pencil points for nice teeth, that’s kind of weird if you think about it,’ she told Harper’s Bazaar. ‘I was a notorious teeth-grinder, so all my front teeth became a couple millimeters shorter.’
Just yesterday, Chrissy shared a screen grab of a series of texts she sent husband John Legend, asking him if he’d had a mouth guard made for himself.
She had just found one in the bathroom but it didn’t seem to fit her – although she supposed it could have been one of hers, but made ‘pre-veneers’.
Chrissy has spoken out about body image in the past, at one point posting a photo showing her stretch marks with the caption: ‘Stretchies say hi!’
She also at one point bashed retailer Forever 21, saying the brand refused 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.”‘
The model was open about how the incident had affected her, adding: ‘I hate you, Forever 21. I hate you so much, honestly, you are the worst.’
