On April 30 in Washington, D.C., at an afterparty for the White House Correspondents Association, Bristol Palin and her new face caused quite a stir.

Debuting not just a slimmed-down bod but a distinctly angled jaw and sharpened chin (see before and after pics), plastic surgery rumors swirled.

She’s opened up to Us Weekly about it, telling the gossip magazine that “It’s not plastic surgery,” just the result of medically necessary procedures.

Her nose looks thinner too. Just saying. Cue the ol’ “deviated septum” excuse.

“I had corrective jaw surgery” in December, Bristol Palin claims with a straight face. Because normal 20-year-olds have jaw surgery all the time.

“It improved the way I look, but was necessary for medical reasons. so my jaw and teeth could properly realign. I don’t obsess over my face.”

Still, “I am absolutely thrilled with the results,” she gushes. “I look older, more mature, and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”

Call it what you want, that sounds like a cosmetically-driven procedure to us. Hopefully this will be chronicled on Bristol Palin’s new reality show.

What do you think? Did Bristol Palin get plastic surgery?
