The leader of ‘Aespa’ has often been accused of getting cosmetic surgery because she does not look the same as she did pre-debut. While stans argue that it’s just grooming, styling, makeup, aging, and weight loss that has made her look different as in more refined and glamorous, many people don’t buy that. A lot of people seem to think she looks very uncanny and like a perfect porcelain doll which gives away all the work she has had.

Karina is mostly alleged to have gone under the knife to get double eyelids, for a sharp and high nose, and a V-shaped jaw. Going by her before and after pictures, it does look like she might have gotten at least two of these procedures because the shape of her face along with her eyes seem to have notably changed. She seemed to have monolid in before pictures whereas her eyes look much bigger and wider with double eyelids now. Fans argue that she always had double eyelids and it only looked like she had monolid because her eyes were hooded and now, it looks bigger because of makeup and not aesthetic treatments.

Now, coming to Karina’s nose, it’s very sharp, narrow, high, and perfect which is very unusual for a South Korean which is why people suspect that she went under the knife to raise her nose. However, stans have countered that saying that she always had a high nose. A lot of her pre-debut pictures showed that she did have a high nose, especially from her side profile but still, that did not convince the neutrals that she had not had cosmetic surgery because to them, even if her nose had always been high, it still looked more refined.

But fans ‘debunked’ all the speculations of rhinoplasty by posting a picture of the ‘Got the Beat’ member pressing on the tip of her nose (South Koreans believe that touching a nose like that shows that the person has not had rhinoplasty). She also once made a pig nose which her fans think she would never have if she had had her nose done because of the fear of displacing a silicone tip or bridge. Stans insist that this is how you can tell that Karina from ‘Aespa’ has not had gone under the knife to refine or sharpen or raise her nose.

As for the accusations that she had her jawline shaved, they don’t seem to have a stronger defense because they only cite her weight loss and say that she lost her baby fat which has made her cheeks and thus, face look slimmer which, in turn, has made her jawline look sharper. But that doesn’t hold much water because she looks very uncanny because of the extreme and severe V-shape of her jaw. Someone on Reddit said that it looked like she had a chunk of her jaw missing because the change was so extreme. It looks like Karina has gone to the doctor to shave her jaw after all because weight loss can’t the shape of one’s jaw.

The singer has never responded to all the speculations that she has gone under the knife but it would not be unusual if she did because idols are often groomed intensely to look perfect and perfection in terms of beauty standards in South Korea can hardly be achieved with natural looks. Besides, Karina’s flawless AI look just seems too surreal to be natural. So, it’s possible that she had cosmetic procedures but we can’t be sure until she confirms it.
