Sia sparked weight gain speculations after her recent face and facelift reveal at an event. Fans noticed that her face looked very plump and noticeably bigger than before. Plus, she was wearing the loosest fit which led them to think that she had put on some weight. If Sia has indeed undergone weight gain, she has not made any reference to it.
Sia released five albums before she broke through as a solo recording artist and rose to fame as a pop star. Having started her career in the mid-1990s in the acid jazz band Crisp, she didn't find much success with her first three albums when she went solo. The fourth and fifth did well relatively but only after Chandelier, the top-ten single from her sixth studio album 1000 Forms of Fear, did she gain recognition. Her fame only grew from then onwards with her reaching new heights when she released her seventh studio album This Is Acting in 2016 which gave her her first chart-topping single Cheap Thrills.
She has released two albums, one solo and the other collaborative and she has also directed a feature film Music since then. She has also had a facelift since then, more like recently which she revealed about three days ago. The revelation has led to speculations about her weight gain because she appeared visibly bigger than she looked before and it's not like fans would miss it. Now, they are curious about the change in her appearance. So, let's discuss Sia's weight gain!
Sia's Weight Gain: Her Face Looks Noticeably Bigger Than Before!
Did Sia (@siamusic) gain weight? Social media is now flooded with speculations about the Australian singer's weight gain after a recent public appearance of hers where her face looked visibly bigger than before like it was swollen or something.

So, the Chandelier hitmaker recently did something you would never have expected from a person who's known for hiding her face with wigs. She lifted the veil of her face only to reveal her new look after getting a facelift. The one who would not even reveal her face revealed the fact that she underwent a facelift procedure. At the 5th annual Daytime Beauty Awards, an event that is about beauty. While presenting the Outstanding Achievement in Medicine award to Dr. Ben Talei who happened to be her plastic surgeon. The whole thing's very bizarre, I know.
But really, weirder things have happened and people have already gotten over it and now, they are stuck on her weight gain. The most noticeable thing about Sia's face was not that she had a facelift but how puffy it looked. Her cheeks looked so much more plump than before that you couldn't help but think that she put on some pounds. She was not always the most slender but I can swear that her face didn't look that big before. I can remember her looking so slim.
The Cheap Thrills singer does not look the same anymore. Looking at her face which has a really weird skin texture and looks swollen, it very much appears as though she has undergone weight gain. Like I said, her face has been slimmer. Her body too. At least it used to look more slender compared to now. The fact that she was dressed in the loosest fit of whatever she was wearing didn't do her favors if she would rather people not talk about her weight. Because hiding her frame with those baggy clothes has made it more intriguing. Once again, I repeat, she has looked slimmer.
Sia May Not Be Liking All These Weight Gain Speculations Much!
Now, coming to speculations, while some of Sia's followers think that her weight gain is to be credited to plastic surgery (they believe that she has had tons of fillers or fat transfer which is what has made her face look swollen like she had filled up her head like a balloon), others think that she has actually gained weight because her body looks heavier (do we really know how she looks underneath that curtain she's hiding from).
Sia seems to be very self-conscious of her weight.

Anyone would look heavier in the clothes she's wearing but they are firmly convinced that she has gained weight because they believe that her weight gain is what she's trying to conceal with those clothes. If you think about it, it's not very surprising that the woman who covers her face would cover her body. Besides, we all are aware of how much she's struggled with her body image over the years.
Sia was not exactly thin and that has always gnawed away at her. She has been very candid about dieting like crazy to fit the stereotype of a pop star because she always felt like she would have to be skinny to be a successful musician. With such a mindset she has, you can tell that if she had weight gain, it would bother her and she would try to hide it as much as possible because as she said, her insecurities are,
Um, mostly, 'Fat f**k, fat f**k, fat f**k. Tree trunk, tree trunk, fat f**k, fat f**k, tree trunk, tree trunk, loser, loser, fat f**k.'
Sia appeared to have gotten slimmer in the last few years. She looked very slender and her face looked very slim as well. But things seem to have changed as she now looks like she has put on weight again. And because of the weight gain, she might be hiding herself because she would not want to get trolled for looking bigger. She once said,
I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on ten pounds or take off ten pounds or I have a hair extension out of place or my fake tan is botched. Most people don't have to be under that pressure, and I'd like to be one of them.
Maybe that's the reason Sia's masking her body and her weight gain. Note that these are just speculations and the singer herself has made no confirmation of it.
