Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes starting looking a little different earlier this year. Now that the new season of RHA is underway, fans will get to see the plastic surgery procedures NeNe underwent to improve her appearance.
In June, Makemeheal.com reported that 42-year old NeNe Leakes appeared to have undergone a rhinoplasty (See Make Me Heal’s story on NeNe Leakes’ nose job). NeNe’s new nose is much slimmer, giving her a more elegant look. It looks as though it was a good job that pretty much just removed the slight bump NeNe had at the tip.
In addition to the nose job, NeNe also says that she had her breast implants lifted and replaced with a smaller size, as well as waist contouring liposuction, according to an interview with People magazine.
“I’m very comfortable and confident in myself. I just wanted a tune up.” “I still wanted to look like NeNe, the black woman that I am,” she says, “but a better version.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says, “ NeNe from the Real Housewives of Atlanta has revealed to People Magazine that she underwent a rhinoplasty, breast implant downsizing with lift, and liposuction of the waist back in April. ”
“I don’t know this person from anybody, but her results do look good. Her nose is just a bit more refined and looks elegant. I can’t tell any difference in her figure due to the clothes she’s wearing.
Ethnic rhinoplasty can be a very difficult procedure. In fact, I don’t do them anymore. Kudos to her doc.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It appears that NeNe’s latest cosmetic surgeries turned out well. Her new nose looks great. It is more defined at the tip and shorter. It looks very natural and fits her face beautifully. Her breast lift and implant exchange also looks great and has really enhanced her look.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “NeNe Leakes appears to have rhinoplasty performed. Her bridge was slightly narrowed, and her surgery was performed conservatively. Overall, she achieved a good result.”
NeNe looks great, indicating that she has met her plastic surgery goals. Fans can look forward to seeing NeNe’s new look on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
