Stars Who Love Their Plastic Surgery
Forget going under the scalpel in secret – these stars are loud and (very) proud about their major makeovers
Two weeks after sharing a photo of herself about to undergo breast augmentation surgery, the Southern Charm star showed off the results in a baby-blue crop top, captioning the Instagram post "blooming."
The star had opened up about her desire for a bust boost before the surgery, writing "If life gives you lemons 🍋 , Dr O’Neill can turn them to melons. Thanks to his excellent team for making this momma feel like herself again," and then clarifying, "Just because I'm having an implant does not mean that I'm coming with boobs as big as my head ... we are going to stay as natural as possible."
Just how happy was the former Jersey Shore star with her decision to get a breast augmentation? So happy, it warranted an Instagram post and several Instagram Stories segments about her new look.
"My boobies are my fave part of my body now," she wrote. "I never had one surgery in my life until this and let me tell you I would do it again because [Dr. John Paul Tutela] is that amazing."
The multi-hyphenate star always keeps it real, and that includes uncovering the "big secret" that celebrities get liposuction in their armpits. But she only has good things to say about that now decade-old decision.
"I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things,” the model told Refinery 29 in 2017. “It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”
While Zolciak-Biermann and her daughter Brielle Biermann's lip injections are a frequent topic of discussion, Biermann revealed a different type of injections that her mom has gotten: ear lobe fillers.
The 21-year-old star tweeted about her mom's treatment on on Twitter, “My mom gets filler in her ears because her diamond earrings are too heavy….. #richpeopleproblems.”
The actress initially thought that getting a breast augmentation would be "caving into the man," but was delighted with the "f---ing awesome" results after deciding to undergo the procedure after her 30th birthday, she told Women's Health. "It came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini.”
To celebrate her 10th season on the Real Housewives of Orange County, the 49-year-old TV star revealed that she got a lower facelift and eye tuck — and showed off the results just two weeks after undergoing surgery on Watch What Happens Live. She wrote on Instagram that she got an "overwhelming amount of messages" after the news broke and decided to share photos of the healing process. "I'm open and honest about it because I want women to know that everyone gets old even people on TV and there is nothing wrong with growing old gracefully if that's what you want...... It's jut not for me! 😂. I like to keep it real!" She's keeping it so real, she even provided her email address for women to reach out to her directly with questions.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed exclusively to PeopleStyle in February that she got her fourth boob job — a cup size reduction and breast tissue reduction in December 2016. She opted for Ideal Implants, which she explained to us were safer than silicone, and two months later, she confirmed on a Best Products Facebook live that she's still thrilled with the results. "They have the softness and naturalness of silicone but don't ripple or slosh around," she told PeopleStyle. "You don’t have to do MRIs anymore, and if it ruptures you know immediately because it will collapse."
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga came clean about getting a nose job after co-star Jacqueline Laurita called her out for having the procedure done four times. "Let’s be honest, it’s the worst-kept secret that I’ve had a nose job, but it’s my secret to tell, not hers," Gorga told The Daily Dish. But she’s not ashamed of the procedure — and she’d like to set the record straight about Laurita’s accusation while she’s at it: "Four nose jobs? I would look pretty deranged."
“It s hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media … There's a lot more pressure to look beautiful,” the rapper told Seventeen about her decision to get a nose job, shortly after admitting to Vogue she’d gotten breast implants. But her number one rule for cosmetic surgery: come clean. “I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame,” she said.
NICOLE 'SNOOKI' POLIZZI
The former Jersey Store star has a reputation for being totally candid with fans about her weight, personal life and more – and that extends to any facial modifications she might undergo, including her lips, which she wrote about on Instagram in August. “First session of lip plumps and it’s just fabulous. I’ve always hated my thin lips and never thought I had the balls to get needles in my lip to perfect them but I did! Trust me girls, I was terrified to get my first ‘procedure’ ever done, but it wasn’t terrible at all! And I hate needles! I love my ‘natural beauty’ but being able to enhance my lips to make me feel better about myself is life.”
The actress has called the implants she got during her run on 8 Simple Rules “the best decision I ever made,” and she told Redbook why: “I had no boobs! I always felt ill-proportioned. My implants made me feel more confident in my body. It wasn’t about trying to be a porn star or wanting to look hot and sexy.”
The star got a breast augmentation in 2008 after really thinking about the decision – and she never looked back. “I’m so happy. I feel complete,” she told PEOPLE. “I was hesitant about talking about it … I was sick of not fitting into my tops … It is a decision I made for myself. I like it, and that’s all that counts.”
At 16, the trainer decided to undergo rhinoplasty after being bullied for her nose in her youth. “I’ll be honest, it did change my life,” she told PEOPLE. “Not to say you should let your physicality define you, but there are some things that can make people feel really insecure. So, if there is something you want to fix that allows you to feel a little bit more confident, I support it.”
Another star who learned the art of being super-candid from her reality show, Bethenny opened up on her short-lived talk show about her fluctuating cup size, which she said stemmed from implants she didn’t like and had removed. “I went again like a couple of years ago when I could afford it to get them taken out and then lifted and I did feel much better,” she said. “I felt like I was a little hotter, you know, a little perkier.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star told PEOPLE in 2010 that she used time off between seasons to undergo a breast lift, liposuction and nose job. “I’m very comfortable and confident in myself. I just wanted a tune up,” she said. “I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am, but a better version.”
Another star who tweaked her nose as a teen, Kudrow says she’s thrilled with the decision. “I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous,” she has said. “I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”
JENNI 'JWOWW' FARLEY
JWoww was never one to try to hide her breast augmentation (literally or figuratively), and a few months after having her daughter, the star was back on social media to discuss her new implants. “Ten years later and with the birth of my angel baby Meilani, [my implants] had changed a bit, especially with breastfeeding. I wanted them really badly,” she wrote. “They are so amazing right now and still have a soft, natural look to them thanks to my amazing doctor.”
The Middle actress opted for a breast reduction and tummy tuck in 2002, and told PEOPLE it all came down to one thing: “Vanity. I mean it. Vanity,” she said. “I had four C-sections and my stomach looked like the map of the world. My breasts were hanging down to here from breastfeeding those babies, and my nipples were like platters. I wanted to fit into the gowns that I finally got to wear.”
