Why Do Fans Think ‘Sister Wives’ Star Meri Brown Has Had Plastic Surgery?

Meri took to Instagram on April 15 to share a selfie that showed her wearing a full face of makeup as she smiled for the camera. “Just over here having another epic day!” the TLC personality captioned the snap. “Happy Saturday!”

Fans rushed to the comments section to praise Meri’s appearance. “You look fab! It’s amazing how good you look when you [lose] 200 pounds!! Have a great day!” one person wrote, referencing her split from Kody Brown.

Meanwhile, others wondered if she’s gone under the knife. “Loving the glow up,” another social media user wrote. “Can you share what you’ve gotten done?”

“She’s def had work done,” someone else wrote. “[She] looks so different then when she was first on TV.”

Meri didn’t answer the question, though several fans responded to share their thoughts on the reality star’s appearance. One person guessed that she used a “forehead smoother,” while another wrote that she could have gotten Botox and had a facelift. However, others suggested that Meri simply edited the photo with a filter.

Later that month, during an Instagram Live video, fans once again speculated about Meri’s changing appearance.

“I think there’s too much filler in your face Meri,” one follower wrote. “Meri looks really different,” another added, while many fans came to the Lizzie’s Heritage Inn owner’s defense saying, “You look absolutely stunning.”
