Kate Gosselin Face Lift

Every time we see a photo of Kate she keeps looking better and better. But what work does it actually take to have transformation like this? Our experts say it varies from botox, fat injectables to face lifts. Do you think she had work done?

It’s no secret Kate Gosselin, 36, is familiar with going under the knife. And after having eight kids, who could blame her? But after looking at these photos side by side it looks like she’s had MORE work done in the last year. Probably not the best move for an unemployed, single mother of a LARGE brood — don’t you agree? Hollywoodlife.com spoke exclusively to top plastic surgeons nationwide to get to the bottom of this mystery: did Kate Gosselin get a face lift?
“It appears Kate may have lost weight as well as having undergone a face and necklift so that her lower face and jawline appear smoother and more defined, possibly an eyelid lift for younger appearing eyes with a little different shape, Botox to the forehead (and lots of it!), and rhinoplasty surgery, or a nose job, that lowered and straightened the bridge of her nose. What a transformation!” — Dr. Jennifer Walden, Austin, Texas based plastic surgeon

“Kate looks great!  She doesn’t look anything like the bitter reality star of the past.  She looks at least 8-10 years younger. It appears that she’s recently had a few things done at the plastic surgeon’s office.  Her forehead is excessively smooth and wrinkle free, likely due to a hefty dose of Botox.  The skin on her face is smooth and pristine, and can be the result of laser treatments, like Syneron’s new ePrime skin tightening laser.  Her face is fuller and softer than it used to be, consistent with fat grafting injections.  Her lower face and neckline look tighter as well, a possible consequence of a well-performed mini facelift.” — Anthony Youn, M.D., F.A.C.S. YOUN Plastic Surgery

“Kate may have undergone a mini-facelift in conjunction with fat transfer [injected to her cheeks]…Her cheeks are a little fuller, especially in her left cheek [on the Nov. 11 photo]. It could be like that because she is smiling a tiny bit more. But filler of her own fat?  Maybe. Facelift? Possibly, but generally you see other types of changes. Look at her jaw line, she doesn’t have a tremendous amount of laxity.”— New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Schaffner, Director of JUVA Plastic Surgery.

” I think the two photos are not comparable. Her head is in a totally different position.” — Beverly Hills, Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Richard Fleming.

“It doesn’t look like she’s had that much done.  There’s no difference between the before and after on her jaw line. She’s smiling and it’s off angle. It’s a little hard to tell.” —  Florida based Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. J. David Holcomb
