Last month, a photo of Chrissy Teigen at the White House Correspondents Dinner went viral. TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram banded together to shout, “WTF did she do to her face?” At the angle the photo was taken, it looked like Chrissy had gotten fillers in her cheeks and chin. Lots of people posted about it, including Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Kay Durairaj, better known as @beautybydrkay. Dr. Kay’s been called “the plastic surgeon to the TikTok generation.” If you’re a 20-something influencer in LA, she’s probably done your lips. Anywho, in the video about Chrissy, Dr. Kay said the star’s cheeks were “overfilled,” and the result made her look “puffy and bloated.” Unfortunately, Chrissy did not appreciate this complimentary analysis, so she mailed a sternly worded letter to Dr. Kay’s office. HA! Naw, Page Six says Chrissy called Dr. Kay “a piece of shit” on her Instagram Stories.
First off, here’s the picture of 37-year-old Chrissy that has everyone in an uproar:

And here’s what Dr. Kay wrote in the caption of her Chrissy video (it’s since been deleted):
This post is not out of mean intentions. It is merely here to discuss overfill and its possible consequences. !! Chrissy Teigen’s “New Face” !! Look at how your face could become if you’re doing it wrong!
There’s too much reliance on hyaluronic gel fillers, and not enough focus on building foundations, skin structure, and support. This can result in a puffy and bloated effect. As an injector, my goal is to ensure that my patients achieve a natural look.
Chrissy did not believe Dr. Kay’s post wasn’t out of “mean intentions.” And actually, according to Chrissy, she didn’t even get fillers. She simply gained weight! Here’s what she posted to her Instagram Stories:
I meeean, Dr. Kay may very well be a piece of shit, but is it really her fault that the general populace thinks Chrissy is a bad person? I feel like there are… other reasons. As for the claim that she hasn’t got fillers, I don’t know her life. But Chrissy has been open about getting buccal fat removal, Botox, an eyebrow transplant, liposuction in her armpits, and breast implants (which she got removed).
Here’s another viral TikTok analyzing Chrissy’s “new face”:
This filler craze is super depressing. There’s a fine line between “cheekbones that could cut glass” and “Jigsaw from the ‘Saw’ movies.”
