Taemin Plastic Surgery

SHINee’s Taemin is yet another KPOP idol to get the nose and eyes KPOP Combo. In his case, he appears to have had them done at different times (these two procedures are so common that they are often done together). His perfect double eyelids appear to be the result of double eyelid surgery. More recently, he changed his nose.

Taemin and Nose Job Rumors

One of the most popular plastic surgeries among celebrities is nose jobs. It appears that the disturbing stories about Michael Jackson’s botched nose jobs aren’t enough to deter people from pursuing the perfect nose shape.

Taemin’s before and after photos show a slight difference in the tip of his nose. Some claim that his nose tip is pointing upward in the new photos, while others claim that it is simply a result of the camera angle. Looking at the photos more closely, it appears that his nose shape hasn’t changed much. It’s possible that the differences are simply due to differences in lighting and camera positioning.

Overall, Taemin has accomplished a great deal in the entertainment industry at such a young age. Fans have been captivated by his performances as an actor, singer, and dancer.

His drive for professional excellence is admirable. Only he knows if this means he is more hungry for better looks. Whatever it is, we can be certain that he has some good acting and singing performances left in him. What are your thoughts on Taemin’s rumored plastic surgery?

Taemin and Eyelid Surgery Rumors

Let’s get right to it. Despite Taemin’s talent, nothing beats having the looks to go along with it. Some netizens believe Taemin used eyelid surgery to make his eyes appear larger and achieve his double eyelids.

When comparing before and after photos of Taemin, it is clear that his eyes have grown larger. Male celebrities have fewer options than female celebrities, who can use makeup to make their eyes appear larger. It appears that no amount of male-appropriate makeup could have produced the larger-eyes effect. And look at those double eyelids; that’s a strong case for eyelid surgery.

Some claim that he wears circle lenses to make his eyes appear larger. Some ardent fans will always defend Taemin’s good looks.

However, because Taemin has not admitted to having any plastic surgery, we can never be certain. One thing is certain: his eyes have transformed from slit-like to brighter and more expressive.
