Since her divorce, Kate Gosselin has been proudly showing off her surgically enhanced body, sporting skimpy athletic wear on runs and hanging poolside in bikinis. The world watched as she underwent a plastic surgery “Mommy Makeover,” so why is Kate being coy about rumors of breast augmentation?
35-year old Kate Gosselin underwent a plastic surgery “Mommy Makeover” on her original reality series Jon & Kate Plus 8 (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kate Gosselin’s plastic surgery).
A Mommy Makeover usually includes a tummy tuck as well as a breast lift, with or without implants. While Kate has been showing off her tummy tuck in a series of bikinis, she still hasn’t admitted to getting breast implants, despite the fact that her breasts looks surprisingly high, round and full for a woman with twins and sextuplets.
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says,” A mommy makeover typically involves a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and breast lift with or without implants. Liposuction is occasionally performed as well. In the picture, it is unclear whether she has implants. Maybe it is just a nice bra?”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It does appear that Kate Gosselin did enhance her breasts. A mommy makeover typically consists of a tummy tuck/ abdominoplasty, breast lift and /or augmentation with implants and maybe a bit of body contouring with liposuction. If the abdominal skin did not bounce back to its pre-pregnancy firmness it is very likely that the same goes for the breasts.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “According to RadarOnline.com, Kate has responded to questions regarding breast implants with:
“These breasts are all mine.”
So does she have breast implants? I think so. It is unusual for a woman to have given birth to eight children, undergone a tummy tuck, and slimmed down to a tiny size, yet still retain natural, perky, firm, round, and large breasts. Usually when the tummy droops, so do the breasts, although often to a lesser extent. My last quote to Radaronline.com:
Youn quipped that either way, Kate’s ‘no surgery’ claim is accurate: “They are all hers because once she pays for them they are all hers. I’ve never taken back any patient’s implants.”
It certainly looks as though Kate has breast implants, which are well done and great fit for her body size.
