Raquel Welch seems to only grow sexier with age. The movie star siren is on the brink of 70 and still manages to look better than ever. With a new book out to promote, Raquel says her stunning looks and fantastic figure are due to diet and exercise, but Makemeheal.com thinks that plastic surgery figure in to her fountain of youth prescription as well.
69-year old Raquel Welch first rose to fame back in the 60s by wearing skimpy bikini that barely contained her ample assets. Decades later, she is still one of the hottest women in Hollywood, likely due to not only practicing yoga, but also having a few nips and tucks over the years.
Raquel has long denied having surgery to maintain her looks, but she has long been rumored to have had breast augmentation, nose job and facelift. In addition, she may also have had a browlift as well as a possible upper and lower eyelid surgery. To maintain her youthful appearance, she may also use fillers like Restylane and Juvederm or possible fat grafting in addition to Botox or Dysport.
Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Raquel Welch looks a great deal younger than her actual age. She appears to have had a facelift, browlift, fillers, and Botox. The work was performed fairly conservatively, and her look is not too overdone.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr Anthony Youn says, “Her forehead hardly moves, likely frozen by a good amount of Botox or Dysport. Her brows are nicely elevated, possibly from a browlift. She shows none of the excess skin and puffiness of a 69-year old woman. I believe she’s also undergone an upper and lower blepharoplasty. Her cheeks and lips are full, likely from a filler like fat grafting. Her neckline is way too sharp for a person her age who hasn’t had a facelift. Finally, her nose looks overly chiseled, likely from at least one reduction rhinoplasty. If her looks are solely due to Yoga, diet, and makeup, then I’m one of Tiger Woods’ mistresses.”
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “ Raquel Welch does look fantastic for 69 years young. She certainly knows the benefits of botox and how a smooth and wrinkle free forehead can really give you a younger look to your appearance. Her eyes and brows seem to have defied gravity probably with the help of a Belpharoplasty (eyelid lift) and a Browlift.”
Raquel looked great on a recent appearance for her new biography Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, where she revealed not only her great body, but a possible hair weave as well.
