Serena Williams is suspected of having undergone multiple plastic surgery procedures including Botox, nose job, breast implants, and butt augmentation. The tennis legend has never admitted to all these accusations, but that hasn’t stopped people from making assumptions. Read to learn more about Serena Williams’ plastic surgery.
Serena Williams is widely considered to be one of the greatest tennis players the world has ever seen and rightfully so. After all, who can ever boast of having been ranked singles world No. 1 by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) for 319 weeks, including a joint-record 186 consecutive weeks? Not any male tennis players, but you get the gist of it. And did you know she has finished as the year-end No.1 five times?
Not to mention how the athlete has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, which is the record for being the most by any player in the Open Era and is second only to Margaret Court’s 24.
Sister to another tennis legend Venus Williams, Serena definitely has known how it feels to be at the top of her game and has been incredibly successful in the tennis world. She earned almost $29 million in 2016, which made her the world’s highest-paid woman athlete of the year. The following year as well, it was professional status quo for her as she became the only woman on Forbes’ list of the 100 highest-paid athletes. She earned a whopping $27 million in prize money and endorsements that year.
Besides all that, the tennis legend has won the Laureus Sportswoman of the Year award four times (2003, 2010, 2016, 2018). She was named Sportsperson of the Year by Sports Illustrated magazine in December 2015 and was ranked 28th on Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Athletes list in 2021. She is the highest-earning woman athlete of all time and is married to a co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian.
Though Serena Williams has seen such immense and because of it, the world is shocked to see that the seven-time Wimbledon champion lose in the very first round of this year’s tournament. She is all over the news for this. People are reminiscing her career which is almost three decades long and going through her highs and lows. And one thing they got fixated on as they did this was her appearance. Many of them believe that she has undergone plastic surgery to make a few subtle changes to her appearance while others think that everything about her is natural.

Did Serena Williams Have Plastic Surgery?
Serena Williams (@serenawilliams) might not be known worldwide because of her looks, she made her name in the world of sports with her tennis skills, but not even herself, one of the greatest athletes of all time, is immune to speculations about plastic surgery. She is in sports, not in the showbiz which is notorious for perpetuating impossible standards of beauty pushing everyone involved to the doors of cosmetic surgeons. Not that sportspeople can’t get plastic surgery, but it’s much more uncommon there. But some people believe that Serena Williams is one of those who has gone under the knife.
Once there was such a big fuss in the media about Serena possibly having undergone plastic surgery, a nose job to be specific. In 2010, when she made an appearance for a Hamptons Magazine Cover Party with Grey Goose at Pranna in New York with a remarkably fresh-faced look, lots of people thought that she had had a nose job. It could just have been the change in her make-up as there are lots of make-up contouring techniques which add the illusion of more defined facial features and a slimmer nose. But the majority of fans think otherwise.
Not only nose job but Serena Williams has also been plagued with the rumors of breast implants. People began thinking sometime in 2015 that her breasts looked more shapely, thicker, and perkier than in her pictures from the past. Since they learned that there is a possibility that most female athletes lose the natural shape of their breasts simply because they spend a lot of time working out and lose a lot of body fat, the breast implants theory ran amok.
Serena Williams also is believed to have another plastic surgery- on her butt. Fans think that she chose to have butt augmentation because of the same reason they thought she had had breast implants. However, all the comparison pictures added as proof that she has gone under the knife didn’t have proper grounds for comparing like she would be standing upright in one image while another shot would be of the tennis star standing with her spine flexed.
Besides that, the other plastic surgery Serena Williams is suspected of is Botox. Her smooth and wrinkle-free skin is believed to have been achieved with Botox injections.
Although the athlete has never admitted to any plastic surgery, I don’t think it would be fair to blame her as she has constantly been undermined because of her masculine features and dragged down for being less than feminine every day. This is enough for anyone to feel insecure about their looks. How can anyone forget that time when she was questioned if she was intimidated by Maria Sharapova’s looks? Why would anyone who gets to interview the tennis legend a question like that if not to undermine her looks?
If Serena Williams had plastic surgery after this, then it’s the society that set the impossible beauty standards at fault and not her. But anyway, she hasn’t admitted to having undergone cosmetic surgery. So maybe all the speculations are just imaginary and baseless.
