Michael Phelps Plastic Surgery: Just Gossips Or Not?

Michael Fred Phelps, better known simply as Michael Phelps, is a 31 year old former competitive American swimmer and Olympian. Phelps has enjoyed  a long and successful career as a professional swimmer before retiring in 2016, at the end of the Rio Summer Olympics. He represented the USA in 5 different Summer Olympics between 2000 and 2016, and has become the most decorated Olympian of all time, having won a total of 28 medals overall. Michael is also a philanthropist, and he has a Foundation dedicated to promoting swimming and healthy lifestyles among younger people. Michael Phelps Plastic Surgery news aren’t as popular as those regarding his addiction, so what could he have had done?

Phelps is a very recognizable, successful and adored athlete, but he has also become a very public figure, particularly during his career hiatus between the 2012 and 2016 Summer Olympics. At this time, he made headlines due to his bad behavior and, before he completely rehabilitated himself and eventually made a comeback to earn his last few medals.


Plastic surgery has become more and more common among men in the last couple of decades, but male public figures are still reluctant to admit they’ve had any work done on their faces or bodies. As an athlete, one wouldn’t have expected Michael Phelps to indulge in cosmetic procedures, but perhaps he was one of the few male celebrities to cave into temptation.

It is difficult to find out the origin of Michael Phelps Plastic Surgery rumors, as very few websites came forward with any speculations about if the swimmer has had work done. At just 31 years of age, it is unlikely that he would have gotten any rejuvenating procedures such as a face lift or Botox. But you can never say for sure, as much younger celebrities have been known to indulge in such procedures.


Phelps has a very distinctive, yet likeable and even charming face. He has prominent ears, crooked teeth and even a big nose, which somehow seems completely fitting on his face. Aside from maybe his nose and the obvious aging, none of these features have changed significantly over the 16 years that he has been in the public eye. So it wouldn’t seem he’d perfected any of them.

However, some seem to think the Olympian did look different after his hiatus, suggesting that maybe the athlete has had plastic surgery to improve his facial structure, particularly his jaw. That doesn’t seem likely though.


There will always be plastic surgery speculation about any celebrity nowadays, Michael Phelps included. But as far as the media are concerned, the closest thing to Michael Phelps Plastic Surgery rumors that has ever come out was the story that he had possibly dated a transgender woman, something he may or may not have known at the time.

All in all, Phelps seems to have left his troubles behind and he has proven his worth yet again at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. If he is to be remembered by something, it should definitely be his record-breaking swimming career and charity work, not Michael Phelps Plastic Surgery rumors and gossips.
