The Story His Pictures Tell
Clay Aiken plastic surgery rumors are true! There are very celebrities who come clean about their cosmetic enhancement procedure; however, Clay doesn’t seem to be one of them. In 2012, when Clay showcased his new looks, plastic surgery rumors stirred up. Subsequently, the singer told several acclaimed magazines that he had gotten a liposuction of the chin to reduce the fat around his jaw. This procedure gave the singer a better jaw line and a more angular face.
Clay explained that he was being operated on for a TMJ(Temporomandibular joint), which is the jaw joint and is a very common procedure, so the singer decided to have a minor liposuction procedure. Clay went to talk about how he found the extra fat in his chin displeasing to his appearance. While, explained his motives and owned up to his decisions, he did not divulge any further information. We, the fans, think it is commendable that Clay owned up to getting plastic surgery for the sole reason of ‘wanting’ something, rather than hiding behind the curtail of sham reasons, such as; healthy eating, medical reasons etc.
