Has Kat Graham had Plastic Surgery?
Now a familiar face among television audiences, The Vampire Diaries actress has definitely expanded her career from being a commercial actress and a background dancer. Her being a dancer certainly helped her achieve her toned figure, making her more appealing. Interestingly, there have been reports claiming that Graham’s body has stopped being natural. As observers examine the actress’ body throughout the years, it seems to them that her body has had a prominent change. Thus, she’s being speculated of undergoing plastic surgery for breast implants.
Noticing her now bigger cup size, some are saying that the likeliness of a surgical procedure is there. In her previous photos, Graham’s breasts were of average size. In her recent appearances, however, it can be noted that her cleavage has gone fuller, her breasts’ size increasing all of a sudden. This change, if ever the rumors are true, made the actress appear sexier and more seductive. If her intention was to attract the attention of the “important” people in the industry to be given other opportunities, this totally worked, allegedly.
