Has Shay Mitchell had Plastic Surgery?
The 27-year-old actress has had her personal struggles when it comes to her self-esteem and body image. While modeling in Hong Kong, the Pretty Little Liars star suffered from an eating disorder. She has since been cured and in the present, it seems that Mitchell is healthy than ever. But there have also been reports recently claiming that Mitchell’s quest for perfection is not yet over as she allegedly has undergone a rhinoplasty procedure.
Her original nose was slightly crooked, making the nasal tip a bit droopy. So, even though her nose was already beautiful, the young star couldn’t deal with the said imperfection and opted for the plastic surgery route. The rumors don’t end there. There are also claims saying that she has undergone a cosmetic operation to “fix” her long and sharp chin. After the surgery, it was noticed how her chin has become shorter and added volume to her face.
