As Xiao Zhan’s (肖戰) fame continues to grow, rumors tend to follow. Plastic surgery allegations have reared again as netizens dug up past photos, scrutinizing the differences in his facial features. They also found it suspicious that Xiao Zhan’s team always tries to take down his old photos.
In his pre-debut photo, Xiao Zhan did not have his current deep double eyelids. He had a bit of baby fat, which is a stark contrast from his slimmer face and elegant image today.
As the photos stirred controversy, Xiao Zhan’s university classmate came to his defense, stating that he was already the center of attention due to his handsome features. His looks even led to students from other schools recognizing him. His classmate said that Xiao Zhan lost approximately 22 pounds after he became famous, which led to sharper facial features.
Xiao Zhan’s fans continued to support their idol, stating that the power of losing weight is even more impactful than plastic surgery. To prove their point, they made an edit comparing Xiao Zhan’s current nose bridge and jaw line with one from four years ago, stating that his appearance changed only because he became thinner. They added that Xiao Zhan worked hard to control his diet and over the years, he gradually gained his breathtaking transformation.
As for the eyelids, the fans tried their best to fight the rumors, saying that his eyes would turn into single eyelids whenever he looked down or raised his eyebrows. They even went as far as to create a continuous drawing to show the process.
While many netizens think it is reasonable that Xiao Zhan’s face became slimmer due to weight loss, they are not swayed by the eyelid argument. They expressed that celebrities undergoing eyelid surgery is common, and Xiao Zhan’s features have remained largely the same except he looks more alert now.
