Plastic surgery is practically a requirement in order to appear on the Real Housewives franchise. But when Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York appeared with a new look, fans were shocked as the feisty redhead seemed nearly unrecognizable, seemingly from an overload of plastic surgery.
47-year-old mother Jill Zarin hit the red carpet at the TV Land Awards looking tucked and pulled and completely different than her usual hausfrau self—even her nose seemed straighter and narrower (an indication of a possible nose job). Still, Jill denied having any plastic surgery.
In an interview with PopEater, Jill said, “If I did, I would be the first to admit it,” says the reality star. “When I had my breast reduction I was very open about it.”
PopEater quotes Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden, who hasn’t treated Jill, as saying, “It appears Jill Zarin has had injectables like Botox to her crow’s feet and forehead, as well as possible fillers to the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines. Also, it looks like she has had a rhinoplasty (or nose job), which served to straighten and narrow her nose.”
After all the speculation, Jill finally came clean about the changes in her appearance, which was more than just a new haircut and better makeup application.
“I have not used any plastic surgery, but I will let you know what I have had done. I go to Dr. Pat Wexler, she’s like the best. What she does is a liquid facelift, which is different than a real facelift.”
“She injects Restalyne on the side [of her face] and it gives you a pull so you don’t fill in the smile lines, because that’s too inaccurate.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It appears that Jill Zarin has had a nose job or Rhinoplasty to narrow and lift the tip of her nose. Her perfectly smooth forehead is most likely the result of Botox injections. Jill has also most likely used dermal fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm to smooth out her “laugh lines” and Sculptra to give her more volume to her cheeks.”
Jill’s new look is a welcome change, but she may want to find a new stylist. The Madonna-esque vibe isn’t working for the Material Girl anymore and it’s not doing much for Jill either, other than detracting from her newly improved face.
