Sia debuts new look after undergoing plastic surgery

Australian singer Sia has revealed she recently underwent a facelift, showing off the results at an event over the weekend.

The Grammy-nominated performer, 47 – who is known for covering her face with large wigs – made the announcement while presenting an Outstanding Achievement in Medicine award to her “good friend” Dr. Ben Talei at the 2023 Daytime Beauty Awards.

“I’m a pop star that normally hides my face and doesn’t lie about s**t,” Sia (whose real name is Sia Furler) told the audience.

“I got an amazing facelift from Dr. Talei. He is incredible, and he is doing so much good work — and not just for the pop stars of the world.”

The Chandelier singer added that she’s been open about her procedure with friends who have complimented her appearance recently.

“I’m like, ‘Dr. Ben Talei, facelift — for, like, anything you could ever want.’ I love him. I can’t say enough good about him,” Sia gushed.

As her star rose back in 2014, Sia opened up on US show Nightline about her decision to keep her face concealed.

“I don’t want to be famous or recognisable,” she explained at the time.

“I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the internet.

“I’ve been writing pop songs for pop stars now for a couple of years, and I’ve become friends with them and see what their life is like, and that’s not something I want.”

The notoriously private musician gave a rare personal interview last month, explaining that she’d been “severely depressed” following her 2016 divorce from her first husband, filmmaker Erik Anders Lang.

“That really threw me for a loop. That was such a dark time that I was in bed for three years, really, really severely depressed. And so I couldn’t really do anything for that period of time,” she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe on his podcast.

She also announced in May that she had received a late-in-life diagnosis of autism.

While speaking with Lowe, Sia revealed that her mental health struggles had made creating her upcoming album a lengthy process.

“I started again, just little bits and pieces here and there but it was really hard to get me out of bed,” she said.

“And then, finally, it just turned out we had enough songs to make an album, enough good ones. So I just rely on my management to tell me when we’ve got enough good ones because I can’t — I don’t really — I can tell when I think one is particularly good, I think I can tell, but they tell me when we’ve got 11 or 12 or 13 enough good ones, real good ones.”

The singer is now happily married again, having wed Dan Bernad in a stunning ceremony in Portofino, Italy, in May.
