Clay's chin makeover!

During his stint on Celebrity Apprentice in January, Clay Aiken looked noticeably different than he did during his heyday as the runner-up in American Idol's second season in 2003 -- and it turns out it wasn't just the passage of time.

The singer, 33, admitted to Andy Cohen on Tuesday's Watch What Happens Live that he did, indeed, undergo plastic surgery.

 "I had operative surgery on my jaw for a TMJ thing and I had them suck the fat out of my chin while they were in there," Aiken revealed on live TV, without specifying exactly when the procedure took place. "I was like, 'You know what, while I'm already down, go ahead and take the vacuum in there and suck the fat out of my chin."
