UPDATES OF SAHAR TABAR:
- Reports suggested she has undergone 50 surgeries to achieve the unusual look
- But Sahar reportedly hinted that it’s simply down to make-up and ‘technology’
According to Snopes, an Instagram account using Sahar’s name shared a post addressing followers which read: ‘The picture that you’re scrutinizing, even though I didn’t like it, I kept it in… I must say I only had [indeterminate number of] surgery, not 50 surgeries…
‘I thought these people are probably living in the 18th century and they haven’t seen or heard of technology or makeup and they are really surprised.’
It comes as new ‘before’ pictures of Sahar have emerged which show just how dramatic her transformation has been.
Fans spoke out in support of Sahar and said that she was simply making clever use of prosthetics and make-up.

Aside from being underweight, Tabar went to extreme lengths to alter her nose and lips. She also wears bright blue eye contacts, which add to her jarring appearance. The social media star likely had multiple nose jobs to achieve her look.
Newsweek reached out to Tabar, but she did not immediately respond to a request for comment. To get more insight into what might be happening with the Iranian social media star, Newsweek reached out to Dr. Michael Salzhauer, a celebrity plastic surgeon.
“The nose is obviously distorted from having at least one too many rhinoplasties,” Salzhauer, who has not treated Tabar, told Newsweek on Friday. “There is probably a silicone implant to give tip and bridge support.”
While lip injections are common in Hollywood and elsewhere, Tabar might have done more than that to emulate her idol Jolie. “The lips look overfilled with filler and she has also likely had a ‘lip lift’ procedure to turn her lip up and show more vermillion, [which is] the red part of the lip,” Salzhauer, who is the chief surgeon at Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery in Miami, said.
The doctor described Tabar’s look as distorted, saying malnutrition likely contributed to her surprising appearance. “Most of the other distortion is from anorexia,” he said. “She is clearly protein deficient, which causes the hallowing out of the temporal areas and cheeks—which gives a ‘skeleton’ look.”
He wasn’t fond of her contacts either, saying they were “too pale.”
Overall, Salzhauer was concerned for her health and said she should get help as soon as possible. “This women needs hospitalization, a feeding tube to increase protein intake and major intensive psychiatric therapy or she may die of starvation,” he said.
Her story originally appeared on the Belgian website SudInfo.be on Thursday and quickly went viral, getting picked up by British publications like The Sun and the Daily Mail.
Since doubling her Instagram following, Tabar increased the number of pictures she shared on social media. In images where she’s not wearing her blue contacts, her nose appears more natural, which could mean she uses a prosthetic attachment for some posts.
Though she apparently wants to resemble Jolie, Tabar has taken some creative licenses with her look that differ from the celebrity. Tabar, for example, has two cheek piercings and short lavender hair. Jolie, on the other hand, has a natural appearance and long dark hair. Tabar is also without Jolie’s signature tattoos.

WHAT HAPPENED TO SAHAR TABAR? JOLIE WANNABE CHANGES INSTAGRAM NAME, DELETES PICTURES
Iranian Instagram star Sahar Tabar did not like the taste of fame she got last week. After rumors swirled that she had 50 plastic surgery procedures to look like actress Angelina Jolie, Tabar doubled her amountof Instagram followers. While she basked in the attention for a few days, Tabar ultimately deleted here photos, changed her name and claimed her page was hacked. She didn’t want anyone to follow her who wasn’t Iranian. Her page is now private.
“Hi friends of friends who are not from Iran,” she wrote in a now-deleted message that was posted Saturday in three different languages. “I’m upset and I just want the Iranians to follow my page. People of the foreign countries don’t follow me please. I only accept Iranian requests.”
The 22-year-old further claimed her page wasn’t authentic anymore: “This page has ben hacked. Unfollow as soon as you can because this page has too [many] viruses.”
She also deleted her profile image and changed her name to Parisa Amiri.
Tabar used to have more than 20 images of herself online, but now only three remain. Her most recent picture doesn’t show her with the spooky features that made her famous.
The Belgian news site Sud Info previously claimed Tabar had undergone “50 plastic surgery operations in just a few months” and had lost 88 pounds to look like Jolie. But according to Snopes, Tabar denied the report and said she used makeup to achieve her deranged exterior.
“Hello relatively dear followers, the picture that you’re scrutinizing, even though I didn’t like it, I kept it in.… I must say I only had [indeterminate number of] surgery, not 50 surgeries, and foreign sites and channels were very biased in the way they talked about my photos,” Tabar supposedly said. “I thought these people are probably living in the 18th century and they haven’t seen or heard of technology or makeup and they are really surprised.”
Tabar also sported a skinny frame, which worried celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer. Newsweek contacted him after Tabar didn’t respond to requests for comment.
He described Tabar’s look as “distorted,” saying malnutrition likely contributed to her surprising appearance.
“Most of the other distortion is from anorexia,” he told Newsweek on Friday. “She is clearly protein deficient, which causes the hallowing out of the temporal areas and cheeks—which gives a ‘skeleton’ look.”
More than anything, Salzhauer was concerned for her health—mentally and physically. “This women needs hospitalization, a feeding tube to increase protein intake and major intensive psychiatric therapy or she may die of starvation,” he said.
