Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa Rivers are getting ready to team up for their upcoming WE network reality series, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?” At a recent press event to hype the show, Melissa revealed that she doesn’t like her mom’s love of plastic surgery.
77-year old Joan Rivers is a poster child for plastic surgery, undergoing numerous facelifts, a brow lift, cheek lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and breast augmentation, in addition to other procedures (See Make Me Heal’s story on Joan Rivers’ plastic surgery).
“In my opinion, it’s like enough,” 43-year old Melissa Rivers said. “Stop it. It is a source of conflict, it really is. It bothers me.”
Joan laughed off her daughter’s concerns, saying there’s no such thing as too much plastic surgery and it is part of being in show business.
Makemeheal.com thinks Melissa’s position on plastic surgery is peculiar, considering that she has had more than her share of plastic surgery herself. Melissa looks like she has undergone a nose job, cheek augmentation and possible browlift. Given her age, she has likely also used dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm as well as Botox.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Melissa has had to watch her mother go through more than the average number of cosmetic surgeries. Most would agree with Melissa that her mom Joan Rivers should stop- for health, safety and aesthetic reasons. But Melissa has also had her share of cosmetic surgeries herself- such as a Rhinoplasty, cheek augmentation and possibly her brows. She has quite a plastic surgery track record herself so far.”
Curious viewers can check out Joan and Melissa Rivers when their show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? debuts January 25th.
