Many a time these days, plastic surgery is often used to enhance one's beauty. And the whole stigma of the topic remains on the fact that it's done just to produce a fake body. But if it weren't for the several positive uses of plastic surgery, it probably wouldn't have been legal either. By positive, we mean change someone's entire life for the better.
For Kaitlin Olson, the only case of plastic surgery has been to do just that. While the top Google results will lead to you Reddit threads discussing she'd gone under the knife to remain ageless, the reality is not as easy to explain simply that way. Her face is weird? Why don't you research more into it first and then find something worthwhile to complain about.
However, at some point of her It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia career, there does seem to be some closer look into the changes that might be verifiable, although not from Olson herself. Botox and lip fillers were the accusation as viewers saw some plastic surgery reference on the show as well.
The reason you see Kaitlin Olson is actually because of this particular incident in her childhood right here. A horrific bike accident involving another vehicle caused her to shave her head and have surgery. As you can imagine, no one but she could've chosen to rise instead of hiding following the literal blow to the head.

The accident at age 12 resulted in a fractured skull, the size of which has since been reducing to "the size of a quarter," she says. "I still have a hole in my head," she told Glamour Magazine in an interview back in 2017. "It was the size of a lime. Now it’s the size of a quarter. It was bad. I had my head shaved, and this was all going into junior high school. I also smashed my face and had to have surgery. It was bad, it was really, really bad."
She might have needed to use Botox to retain the result of the injury. Or just chosen to remain young for the industry, who knows.
Following the reconstructive surgery, there was two way she could go about in her life. She had to either just disappear from society forever or needed something else for her image to make people focus on rather than her scar. Yes, that's when she decided she would really do something with her life. She chose theater.

"I had my head shaved going into junior high," she says, according to Pamplin Media Group. "I could hide for the rest of my life or find an alternative way to stand out."
"It was a defining moment in her life," her father adds. "It did huge things for her self-confidence. She found she had a bit of a knack for it." And playing 'Rumpelstiltskin' and singing for the role in high school was the turning point of her acting life, according to their friends.
As a defining moment, she agrees that it was actually the best thing to happen to her. Humor had a big part in rising up. "Honestly, it's probably the greatest thing that ever happened to me," she continued in her Glamour interview. "That was a real serious source of adversity that took years to fight back from that. No 12 or 13-year-old girl wants to walk into her first day of junior high with a swollen face and a shaved head and a [huge] scar. It was bad."
So yeah, the only reason you would be even discussing her other plastic surgery rumors is because of that one she first had it on herself. Just enjoy the show, as she does every day of her life with husband Rob McElhenney.
