We might have been seriously involved in the news of Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly’s (MGK) thorny relationship (pun intended and whether we wanted to know or not), but we’re honestly more invested in the latest news about Megan’s plastic surgery confession.

In a recent episode of Alex Cooper’s Call Her Daddy podcast, the Transformers star sets the record straight on some of the craziest rumours she’s heard about herself, including plastic surgery procedures, which is incredibly refreshing and commendable.

After all, it’s not every day that a celebrity is transparent about the work they got done. Most choose the path of neglect or claim they haven’t done any plastic surgery at all.

To all that, we commend Megan Fox and say: “Speak your truth, girl”!

Living Up to an Image While Battling Body Dysmorphia

While Megan hasn’t been this candid with her plastic surgery before, she has spoken about dealing with body dysmorphia.

The famous star told Alex that she’s struggled with body dysmorphia since the age of five and vividly remembers when the first signs appeared.

“I even remember what I was wearing. I had black shorts that had white polka dots on them, and I was five…I was in the back seat [of the car], looking at my legs,” she recalled.

Another early source of insecurity for Megan was her breasts. “My mom said that I used to go into the bathroom and stand on the toilet and pull up my shirt to see if my boobies had grown, and I would get really upset that I didn’t have big boobs,” she said.

The public’s fixation on her looks and being called a “sex symbol” has been challenging for Megan. According to Self, the pressure to live up to a specific image was “haunting” especially when she had to endure years of harsh treatment and constant sexualisation from the media.

Megan expressed confusion over being called a “sex symbol” by the public due to her body-image insecurities, which originated from feeling “unwanted” and “defective.”

“I think it adds pressure to a girl who, like I said, has body dysmorphia and didn’t really ever see herself that way. And the things that I thought were my strengths — like my mind, my intelligence, my sense of humour — those things are not acknowledged, and instead, I’m being acknowledged for something I don’t identify with,” Megan told Alex.

Having faced harsh criticism, scrutiny, and even disrespectful comments about her appearance, Megan also expressed hope for more empathy from the public when discussing others’ looks.

In a 2023 video interview with Sports Illustrated Swimwear, Megan disclosed that she doesn’t ever see herself the way others see her.

“There was never a point in my life where I loved my body ― never, ever,” she said. She also didn’t know how or why she had an awareness of her body at such a young age since she grew up in an extremely religious household where bodies weren’t even acknowledged.

Megan believes that the journey of loving herself will be a never-ending one.

Personally, if there’s anything that I’ve learned from writing about beauty and plastic surgery while keeping up with pop culture and the entertainment industry, is that the industry and world make beautiful people think they’re anything but (and that’s depressing).

Anyone experiencing signs of Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or who recognises these signs in someone they care about, should talk to a trusted person, consider therapy, reach out to a mental health professional, or join a support group.

Taking that first step to seek help for BDD is a courageous act that paves the way for healing and a life filled with greater self-acceptance!

With effective support and treatment, people with BDD can develop the tools they need to manage their symptoms and thrive.

Megan Fox’s Plastic Surgery Confession

In the podcast, Megan revealed all the plastic surgery procedures she’s had except for one that she’s keeping under wraps for now.

The 37-year-old shared that she underwent breast augmentation in her early 20s.

“I had my boobs done when I was 21 or 22. I had them redone after I was done breastfeeding my kids. I had to have them redone very recently because the first set, I didn’t have enough body fat to disguise [them]. You could see the rippling of the implant, so I had to switch them out to this set,” said Megan.

She also confessed to using Botox and filler, as well as getting a nose job in her early 20s, but stopped there.

“I’ve literally been accused of having six, seven, or eight rhinoplasty surgeries which is impossible — your nose would get necrosis and fall off. I haven’t had a rhinoplasty since I was, I’m gonna say, 23. It’s been well over a decade,” she said.

Despite being open about most things, the Jennifer’s Body actress added: “There’s one thing I had done that I’m gatekeeping because it was really good, and it’s not a known plastic surgery. People don’t even really know about it.”.

Online Theories About Megan’s Appearances

For some reason, people just love talking about Megan Fox’s face and body (and it’s not always the kindest thing they say).

Netizens have said how she “is now unrecognisable”, “is not unique”, and looks more and more like a Kardashian. Some are even adamant that Megan was lying about her plastic surgery procedures in the podcast.

Meanwhile, some people also mentioned that her “transformations” that seemed “drastic” could be attributed to a change in makeup styles or the effects of Botox and fillers.

In May 2020, YouTuber Lorry Hill who is best known for her videos on beauty and aesthetic surgery published a video exploring the possible aesthetic and plastic surgery treatments Megan might have gotten.

Her research and observations led her to conclude that Megan could have done USD109,500 (~S$147,667) worth of treatments and plastic surgery, including Co2 Laser, cheek implants, breast implants, and more.

About a year later in October 2021, Lorry posted a nearly 18-minute-long update video to share more of her observations, emphasising that all the ideas expressed are purely of her own opinion and without proof, receipts, or evidence.

Banished Speculations: the Plastic Surgery Procedures Megan Didn’t Get

“I’ve never had a facelift of any kind. No mid-facelift, no, like, lateral brow lifts — although I would like one — or no regular brow lift,” Megan unveiled.

“I’ve never done threads ― I have researched them, it’s not because of some moral thing, I just don’t really believe they work and I’m also afraid that they would interfere when I do need to have a facelift. But I am very tempted to have my eyebrows snatched,” she added.

Another rumour Megan wanted to dispel was about buccal fat removal: “I’m a very lean person that doesn’t have enough body fat or fat in my face,” Fox explained. “So I will only ever put fat in, I will never be taking fat out.”.

She asserted that she has never had any liposuction, body contouring, or anything similar to those treatments. Megan also joked that she would be “so flattered if someone thought I had a BBL [Brazilian butt lift]”.

To back up her claims, Megan shared that she doesn’t like surgery even though she’s gone under the knife a few times.

“My body doesn’t react well to general anaesthesia, and so when I go to have a surgery it’s a very big deal,” she said, adding that she’s “very afraid of dying under general anaesthesia, so I don’t take surgery lightly and therefore I have not had many of them because of that.”

Going Against False Claims


This is why celebs aren’t honest in the first place, bc no matterwhat they say people always pick apart and demand more. She was transparent about her procedures and as a result now people are insisting that shes gate keeping?? #meganfox #callherdaddy #beforeandafter #plasticsurgery #transformation

Sure, ’tis the life of fame, but it feels as though something is being reported about Megan every few hours or every few days (most of which are clickbait or meant to drag her down).

It truly never ends! The spotlight’s still glaring and we doubt the attention on her will dim anytime soon.

When it comes to plastic surgery, there’s an abundance of videos talking about what certain celebrities have done which, more often than not, is accompanied by a slew of unfriendly comments.

Of course, everything is entirely up to your discretion but don’t believe everything you’re reading or watching online!

Personally, I trust news and videos by plastic surgeons themselves a little more than anyone else. They’re the professionals who have probably done countless different plastic surgery procedures before so they’ve seen it all, done the work, and know what they’re talking about.

It’s fine to consume such content as you wish, but be sure to keep in mind that it could be misinformation or fake news especially if the celebrity or person in question has never confessed anything before.

On Call Her Daddy, Megan also talked about her relationship status with MGK and how she’s learned that the relationship is “not for public consumption”.

That’s exactly what I think her plastic surgery details should be, too, since it’s not our body and (quite frankly) none of our concern.

As women and humans, we should be building each other up — not tearing others apart. Speculating about one’s features and possible plastic surgery procedures starts to get menacing when taken too far.

It may be difficult to incite change in the entire social structure of the world and how the importance of appearances is so ingrained into our society, but surely we’re able to choose how we speak, react, and behave!
