Mariah Carey: Good Genes or Good Docs?

9/20/2009 5:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey has hit a high note ... and her voice is really good too.

Mariah Carey

Here's the 21-year-old diva back in 1991(left) -- and 18 years later, the 39-year-old version at a film premiere in Toronto last week (right).

She really is "Precious."

Nose job, teeth capped, eyebrows trimmed, lips collagen, boobs fake (but nice)

She is plastic surgeons dream

I think she's pumped full of botox, as her skin is way too smooth, but I don't think that much nipping and tucking and happened. When people pull their faces they features get sort of stretched, and hers don't look that way.

19. I think she's pumped full of botox, as her skin is way too smooth, but I don't think that much nipping and tucking and happened. When people pull their faces they features get sort of stretched, and hers don't look that way.

She is only 39, how many wrinkles do you think she should have? I am 49 and I don't have a bunch either, I am just starting to get them around my eyes. You know if you take care of your skin, wash it regularly, protect it from the sun and don't smoke and have good genes then you probably won't have a lot of wrinkled skin. She is also half Africian American and their skin does not wrinkle like caucasian people's skin does. I am white, but I care for my skin, never was a sun goddess and it is wrinkle free without surgery or chemicals.

I loved Mariah Carey when she first came out. She was young, incredibly talented, and beautiful to boot! But as the years have gone on, I no longer enjoy her music. To me, she really oversings nowadays, and the songs just aren't up to the beauty of her earlier work.

I still think she is very beautiful, and I applaud her for not becoming one of these stick figure beanpoles. But the boobs are so ridiculously fake- I mean, look at the video for "Vision of Love" and tell me that she hasn't had a boob job. But having said that, SO WHAT? People get it done all the time, and celebrities are vain as hell. Not sure why plastic surgery is such an issue. Unless, of course, they deny having it, and then they need to be put in their place!

I just wish she would focus more on her singing and getting some stage presence (of which she has NONE- she looks like she's having a seizure on stage, and cannot sing live to save her life!). She has a great talent, and she needs to stop squandering it because of her vanity.

I've always thought this was her best look! She really should keep her hair like this. It makes her look younger in a nice natural way. I hated that long, flat, blond hair. She's looking good lately!

stalkers are scum    

It's understandable why she got the breast augmentation. She used to be nearly flat, & she loves Marilyn Monroe. She had the money. If I'd be her I would have too! But when I heard her say she hadn't work done I just laughed..

Her nose, teeth, & breasts for sure. I'm glad she is wearing her hair curly while out & about-love it!

Nose refined slightly, and (obviously) breast implants. Otherwise I'd say just the usual expensive treatments, creams, facials, and what-not. Basically, it's genetic. She's lucky. Now if she would stop presenting herself like a slutty 20-year-old. I mean, more power to her that she can, but no matter how good she looks, it's a little embarassing and I don't think she needs to do it. However, unlike Madonna, she keeps herself voluptuous, so her immature sexed-up image is visually more appealing. But, is Mariah gonna be flasing her cleavage and squirming around at 45 and 50?!

the truth hurts huh    

There is nothing different about her nose! It's just different lighting. And maybe nothing different about her teeth either. Below the neck may be a different story. But stop makin' stuff up just for the hell of it people.
