Regis Philbin’s stunning sidekick Kelly Ripa says she is open to plastic surgery, although she doesn’t say if she’s already had any. After checking out Kelly’s career in photos, Make Me Heal suspects that Kelly may be open to plastic surgery because she’s already spent some time on an operating table.

There is no denying that at 38, Kelly looks amazing for being the mother of three children, with her handsome husband soap actor Mark Consuelos. Her toned physique have not only made her the envy of many, but also landed her on the cover of many a magazine, where Kelly finds she really enjoys her appearance.
Kelly told People Magazine, “I mean, I always like the way I look if I’m on the cover of a magazine – when they airbrush me, I always look so much better. Why is that? Well, because they smooth out fine lines.”
She also said, “I really don’t think there is anything wrong with it [plastic surgery].” And went on to liken plastic surgery to having her hair done, “I am in a place in my life where I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. I mean, I get my teeth cleaned if they are dirty. If my roots darken, I get them colored.”
Make Me Heal suspects that Kelly has enjoyed her photo airbrushing so much, that she has visited a plastic surgeon to get a little of her own done in real life. Her forehead is entirely wrinkle-free, even when caught wearing no make-up by the paparazzi, a likely result of the ever-popular Botox. Also, some have noticed that Kelly’s nose is slightly slimmer and more refined than it used to be, which could be the result of a conservative rhinoplasty sometime in the past. However, as Kelly has lost weight on her rise to fame, it could also be the same nose on a slimmer face.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “There is no question Kelly is beautiful. She seems to have lost weight and is in better shape from her earlier pictures. There is not much evidence of plastic surgery. She does have a wrinkle-less forehead and a “Botox glow” which makes me wonder if she has had Botox Cosmetic treatments. Additionally, her nasal bridge and tip appear more refined than in her previous photos which makes me suspect that she may have undergone rhinoplasty. Regardless, Kelly looks great!”
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia also saw a change in Kelly’s nose, saying, “I see a rhinoplasty between the far past and now.”
Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery expert and Rhinoplasty Specialist Dr. Paul Nassif reveals, “Her tip does look different but I’m not looking at a great picture. She may have had a conservative rhino. Remainder of face, no change.”
Kelly is undeniably pretty and clearly takes good care of herself. She may never need more invasive plastic surgery than she has already had, except for a careful tweak here and there.
