Tyra Lynne Banks was born on December 4, 1973 in Inglewood, California to NASA photographer Caroline London and computer consultant Donald Banks. She started modeling at the age of 15, where she has achieved fame over the years. She became the first African American woman to grace the covers of GQ and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.
Her success in modeling led her to try acting, beginning with her role as Jackie Ames in the comedy series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She is now known as the host and the producer of the hit reality television show America’s Next Top Model.
Has Tyra Banks had Plastic Surgery?
As a successful model, television personality and producer, Banks has had her fair share of issues, one involving plastic surgery. As old photos of her surfaced online, many noted that Banks’ appearance has highly improved, an improvement that’s beyond natural changes.
According to various reports, Banks may have undergone a nose job. Her previous photographs showing her old nose clearly differ from how her nose currently looks – narrower and has more shape.
The 40-year-old model and producer also arose speculations of breast implants. To prove that her bosom are real than ever, she surprised the audience of ABC’s Extreme Make-Over when she appeared in the show only wearing a short bathrobe.
She then asked plastic surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher to check if her breasts are real or not, which he did, confirming to everyone that Banks has indeed a huge, natural set of breasts.
