Mariah Carey: Has She or Hasn’t She?
When her career took off in the ‘90’s, Mariah Carey, now 40, was more innocent waif than voluptuous vixen. Since then, she’s gone blond, married 10-years-younger Nick Cannon, and become know for "Golden Globes." But have her breasts actually been enhanced? Elevate asked plastic surgeon Dr. Hugh McLean to offer his professional opinion.
"Not only does Mariah appear to have breasts that are lower than before, they are also larger and tend to be rounded above. When she wears clothes that push her breasts up, I think you can see what could be the outline of an implant."
"Mariah’s photos from years ago show nicely proportioned breasts. There are lots of reasons for women to be amply endowed, and Mariah’s genetics are favourable for that."
"Recently, probably in the mid-decade, she seems to have changed. She still has great proportions, but she looks bigger and that could be due to weight changes. And her breasts look noticeably larger." –A.M.
Dr. McLean’s verdict: "I think she looks great. Her body is in good proportion, so if she has had surgery, I think we can say ‘Good for you, Mariah!’"
