Carrie Underwood – Plastic surgery rumors are nothing new in entertainment, especially when a celebrity comes out of hiatus with a new look. 

Although some outright admit it, others often leave people guessing. In the case of Carrie Underwood, the rumors continue to swirl despite her maintaining that she never went under the needle.

In 2017, the American Idol winner got into an accident that left her with a facial injury. 

People were quick to stir rumors of the celebrity using the accident as an excuse for plastic surgery. Since then, she has waved off those rumors.

How did Carrie Underwood sustain her injury?

Recently, Underwood spoke with Hoda Kotb and discussed the accident. The singer explained that she had been home alone with her son in 2018 when she misstepped.

“Plain and simple, it was just kind of a freak accident,” explained the singer. “I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business. It could happen to anybody.”

After the fall, Underwood shook off the accident. However, she soon realized that she needed medical attention.

The singer learned she would need between 40 to 50 stitches on her face and surgery on her wrist.

From there, the rumors started pouring in.

Underwood’s response to the rumors

In 2018, Carrie Underwood finally addressed the rumor that she intended to use the accident as a reason for covering up plastic surgery.

“I’m on some magazine every other week for something crazy,” she said. “It’s a little sad, because the truth is just as interesting. I wish I’d gotten some awesome plastic surgery to make this [scar] look better.”

Carrie Underwood’s taking points after the accident

Like any mother, Underwood was worried about what her son Isaiah might think about her face after the recovery.

“You just don’t know,” said Underwood. “It was also a perception thing, because I look at myself [now] and I see it quite a bit, but other people are like, ‘I wouldn’t have even notice.’”

“Nobody looks at you as much as you think they do,” she added. “Nobody notices as much as you think they will, so that’s been nice to learn.”

Carrie Underwood also shared that a team of professionals helped “speckle and paint and paste” while she recovered, saying, “Every day I’m feeling a little more back to normal.”
