With Octomom Nadya Suleman in the news for posing in semi-nude photos for a British magazine, questions about whether she’s had plastic surgery — specifically a tummy tuck — are coming up again..the mother of 14 was paid to appear in the photos for Closer magazine, where the cover screams, “Octomum bares all! ‘My body’s never looked this good!’.Since then, Suleman gave a video interview on Celebuzz denying that she’s had anything but a breast reduction in the past.
“I’ve never had a tummy tuck,” says Suleman, 36, in the video. She says she had skin removed from around her navel area because of an issue with a belly button ring.
When Celebuzz asked if she would consider getting plastic surgery in the future, she said:
“I think God gives us what we were born with. I’m different, my ethnicity is mixed. Middle Eastern, and European and Lithuanian and German. And so, I don’t believe in it.”
Two years ago, she was on the cover of Star magazine showing off her bikini-ready body and saying she lost 150 pounds through diet and exercise alone. Suleman delivered her octuplets in 2009. She previously had six children.
Some Orange County doctors told this blog at the time of the Star magazine story that plastic surgery would have been needed to tighten the stretched skin from her last pregnancy, though her claim of no nip-tucks was not completely discounted.
But for some cosmetic doctors, the shape of Suleman’s belly button is evidence that she had a tummy tuck. Plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. Tony Youn said, “The belly button looks like her surgeon either created it herself or inset it as a vertical slit. in my opinion, this is a telltale sign of a tummy tuck.”
And, as noted in this blog, Dr. Daniel Capen of Downey examined Suleman in 2000 in connection with a workers compensation claim that she filed. His report stated, in part: ”Surgical history is positive for breast augmentation 1993.”
