Through the decades it has been speculated that Marilyn Monroe had numerous plastic surgeries on her nose, chin, teeth, hairline, etc. While plastic surgery was hardly ever talked about back in the day, compared to how much it is today anyways, it was still a common occurrence in Hollywood nonetheless. That leads us to ask: did Marilyn have plastic surgery/surgeries done?

July 14, 1958:
Marilyn visits Dr. Michael Gurdin after experiencing a fall somewhere around 2:00 AM to 3:00 AM, with the chief complaint of a "chin deformity." Under Physical Findings, it was noted that in 1950 she had a cartilage implant in her chin that had "slowly been absorbed." It was remarked that Marilyn had a "mild flatness of chin" and the Dr. couldn't feel any cartilage.
A submental scar was also observed. You can see the scarring in this photograph:
June 7, 1962:
Marilyn went under the name Miss Joan Newman to visit Dr. Conti with the concern of her nasal bones. After a complete study of her nose, it was observed that everything was normal and there weren't any notations on past surgeries on her nose.
From the available information today, we can conclude with documented proof that Marilyn only had plastic surgery done on her chin.
Thank you for reading today's blog post on Marilyn's Moments! I am doing this post simply to dispel the rumors stating Marilyn had multiple plastic surgeries, for they are not true. Whether Marilyn/Norma Jeane had ten plastic surgeries, none, or anywhere in between - she was always beautiful (inside & out). I 100% respect others' opinions and know that only Marilyn will know for sure what she had done. I hope you have a lovely day. Hold a good thought for Marilyn!
