Katherine Heigl has once again become the subject of plastic surgery speculations after the release of the second season of Firefly Lane. Because the Grey’s Anatomy star looked a bit puffy and too smooth in the show, fans believed that she might have had Botox and fillers. However, Katherine Heigl has never addressed those plastic surgery speculations. She, however, has had neck surgery for health purposes.
Katherine Heigl is an American actress and former fashion model who is most recognized for playing the role of Dr. Izzie Stevens on the ABC television medical drama Grey’s Anatomy from 2005 to 2010. It was a breakthrough role for her that not only raised her to prominence but also brought critical acclaim and accolades, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2007.
After she gained recognition from Grey’s Anatomy, she went on to star in several commercially successful romantic comedy films such as Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth, Killers, Life As We Know It, and New Year’s Eve. Katherine Heigl also did Zyzzyx Road, One for the Money, The Big Wedding, and Unforgettable. She also did voice acting in the animated film The Nut Job and its sequel.
She has also served as an executive producer on some of her leading television roles, including the NBC television series State of Affairs and the Netflix series Firefly Lane. She is also producing the upcoming limited series Woodhull. Besides, she has established herself as a cover model and has appeared in numerous publications including Maxim, Vanity Fair, and Cosmopolitan.
She is back on Netflix with the second season of Firefly Lane. Her return to the screen also brought about the return of her plastic surgery speculations. Fans had noticed how different she looked from before in Season 1 and they were reminded of it again as they binge-watched Season 2. Are the differences due to cosmetic procedures or just because she has aged? Fans believe it’s both. Let’s find out more about Katherine Heigl’s plastic surgery!
Katherine Heigl’s Plastic Surgery: Speculations About Botox and Fillers; Details About Her Neck Surgery!
Katherine Heigl (@katherineheigl) is once again the subject of speculations about plastic surgery after they remembered how different she looks from before after watching her in the second season of Firefly Lane. More than a year ago, when the Netflix series premiered in February 2021, fans were quite shocked to see her look so unrecognizable. It might partly have been due to the fact that she changed her signature blonde look to short dark brown curly hair to play Tully Hart but many insisted that it was more than just the hair.
Katherine Heigl hadn’t been in too many mainstream-y shows or films that would garner media attention for quite a while till she did Firefly Lane. So, those who remembered her from her Grey’s Anatomy and Knocked Up days were bound to get surprised by how she has changed. It has been a long time since then and so, she was obviously going to change but fans were a bit taken aback nevertheless. They realized soon after that the changes are not just aging, but she looked like she had some work done. It was then that the plastic surgery speculations started.
The Grey’s Anatomy star did have dark brown hair as opposed to the usual blonde but that was not all. She also had a bit puffy face and a complexion that was a bit pillowy and waxy. Also, never forget how her forehead looked like it had been smoothed out. Even with no wrinkles, foreheads do not look that smooth. So, it was obvious that the differences were not just aging but plastic surgery was also involved.
All in all, Katherine Heigl was suspected by her fans of having injected Botox into her forehead and fillers injected into her face, in the least. Now, they may not really qualify as plastic surgery because they are minimally invasive but those still count because they are cosmetic procedures, never mind their invasiveness. Some even wonder if she has had a facelift (now that could be real plastic surgery) but her face does not look the kind of tight that facelift makes it. Besides, it’s going to be a long time before she even needs a facelift.
And it goes without saying but these are simply speculations. And it might be false as well but we cannot be sure of that until Katherine Heigl either confirms or denies them. But, so far, she has not even addressed it.
The Firefly Lane actress, however, has revealed that she had undergone neck surgery for health purposes. No, not a thyroid surgery as many seem to think from the scars on her neck. She got two titanium plates inserted into her neck in order to deal with a herniated disc.
In March 2021, the Knocked Up star posted a photo of herself in recovery from the neck surgery wearing a neck brace and wrote,
Well…I am now bionic!! Two titanium disk now inhabit my neck and I can probably stand on my head for like hours…I’m not gonna try it just yet but give me a few months and I’ll blow your mind!!
Katherine Heigl also showed where in the neck the titanium disks were placed by sharing x-rays from before and after the surgery in the post.
