Plastic surgery is practically a requirement to be a cast member of Bravo’s reality television series “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” But what about the show’s New York incarnation? Make Me Heal investigates the possible plastic surgery of Real Housewife of New York, natural food chef Bethenny Frankel.
38-year old Bethenny Frankel is undeniably attractive, but how much of her good looks are due to plastic surgery? In 1994, Bethenny appeared topless in a little-known movie called Hollywood Hills 90028, revealing her large, but sagging breasts. Since then, Bethenny’s breasts seem to have been rejuvenated, as they are higher, firmer and rounder than ever. As breasts usually drop with age, it seems likely that Bethenny has had a breast augmentation and possible breast lift as well.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden says, “Bethenny Frankel looks like she has had breast augmentation as the roundness of the implant along her upper bust line is apparent.”
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer also thinks that Bethenny may have had plastic surgery saying, “She may have had a breast lift or implants when comparing her present photos to her revealing 1994 photos.”
Since her initial appearance on the first season of “The Real Housewives of New York,” many have also noted that Bethenny’s face seems to look better than ever, leading to speculation that she has fillers, and/or Botox to help relax the lines in her face and improve the hollows of her skin which made her look older.
Dr. David Shafer reveals, “Bethenny Frankel looks much improved from previous years. She may have had Botox or chemical peels or laser. However, when comparing her present and past photos, she is doing a much better job with her make up and skin tone.”
According to Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., “Bethany has most likely had a rhinoplasty. In addition, she has indications of possible fillers being used around the cheeks. She may have also had an upper eyelid lift, as she appears to be very hollow in this region.”
On the other hand, Dr. Walden says, “She naturally has strong facial features and bone structure, however, it doesn’t seem that she has had any surgery done to her face.”
If Bethenny has had plastic surgery, she would be in good company with the Real Housewives of Orange County stars especially Lauri Waring and Lynne Curtin. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Lauri Waring’s plastic surgery and Lynne Curtin’s plastic surgery).
Whether or not Bethenny has been under the knife, it does seem as though she is looking better than ever.
