With a new album out, you’d think that Jewel would have the intuition to get her breast implants replaced. But it appears that the singer/songwriter has opted not to have her plastic surgery revised.
35-year old Jewel has never entirely bought into the Hollywood hype about having perfect good looks and has taken especial pride in having crooked teeth and never having them fixed. So it was with some surprise that fans noticed a decidedly bustier Jewel in the 2003 music video for her hit single “Intuition.” It was even more surprising that when the talented and once homeless artist didn’t have her breast augmentation redone even though they are an obviously botched job.
Jewel’s breast implants seem to be the wrong size for her figure. The result is that the implant lies on top of her natural tissue, giving her breasts a lumpy appearance.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden says, “It looks like she had breast augmentation with possible subglandular placements of the implants. It seems like her breast diameter/pocket is wider than the diameter of her implants therefore you can tell where her implants end and her real breast tissue starts.”
While Jewel’s implants do not fit now, they could be replaced for a better result.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Jewel, unfortunately, had poor outcome from her breast implant surgery. From the pictures it appears that she has had implant replacement or removal. Her breasts now have less volume and they appear more ptotic. It appears that she may benefit from additional surgery for a replacement of the implants to fill the empty volume and a possible breast reshaping procedure.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell J Aston says, “It appears that singer Jewel’s breast implants are too small in diameter for the width of her breast. Also, her implants are visible under her skin, which suggests that her implants are not beneath the pectoral muscle. If she had a revision with better implant selection and they were placed under the muscle it would give her a better result.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia theorizes that perhaps the bizarre appearance of Jewel’s breasts are due to having implants removed, rather than placed. He says, “Jewel has had busty days and more recently kinda deflated days. This could easily be due to the sequence of breast implant surgery years ago with later simple implant removal. When removing implants from long ago, it often helps to add a “take up the slack” lift to keep the sag down.”
