The mother of eight sat down with the ladies of ‘The View’ and showed signs of plastic surgery. Has Kate had work done? Our expert says yes!

Kate Gosselin, 37, of Jon & Kate Plus 8 fame hardly looked like the same person when she showed up to The View on Feb. 26!

As she talked on the show, there were definite signs of a facelift, and an expert plastic surgeon agrees.

Kate Gosselin’s ‘Definitely’ Had A Facelift — Experts Say

Dr. Steven Fallek, a New York-based plastic surgeon, says, “Definitely a facelift — which includes her neck.” He adds that the “angles look much sharper along her lower face and neck.”

“Life is either treating her exceptionally well or she had work done,” Dr. Ed Williams, Group Vice President for Public and Regulatory Affairs for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), says. Dr. Williams also notes that her “cleaner jaw line” is undeniable.

As for how her doctors pulled it off, Dr. Fallek says it was “probably a short scar facelift as she is younger and doesn’t have much extra skin.” This sort of facelift involves a shorter incision that begins at the top of the ear and is then disguised inside the ear.

Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria suggests another way — grafting fat or stem cells to her face. “This procedure is done by harvesting the fat in other part of the body and in case of fat grafting injecting it back to the face trough tiny incisions,” Dr. Calabria says.

Yet another surgeon, Dr. Richard Norden, FACS of Norden Laser Eye Associates, believes that Kate may not have had a full-fledged facelift, but utilized Botox and a new form of facial rejuvenation: “Her neck seems to be noticeably lifted. I would guess that she had the hot new non-surgical facelift using non-invasive ultrasound called Ultherapy.”

Kate Also Got Minor Rhinoplasty

But her face isn’t the only thing that looked different; our experts also noticed that work’s been done on Kate’s nose! Dr. Stephen Greenberg, Author of A Little Nip, A Little Tuck, and host of a plastic surgery radio show on KJOY 98.3 FM, surmises that Kate underwent a procedure called “tip rhinoplasty.”

Dr. Calabria explains Kate’s “tip work,” saying, “Tip rhinoplasty is usually done just to thin out the roundness of the tip giving it more definition.

Kate Gosselin’s Plastic Surgery: How Much It Cost

Dr. Fallek estimates that Kate’s plastic surgery cost “About 10 grand for the face and $7,500 for the nose.”

We’re wondering where Kate got together all that cash for such elaborate procedures! The show that brought her fame, Jon & Kate Plus 8, ended its run in Sept. 2011.

Kate was also fired from her blogging job at CouponCabin! In a statement, the website’s CEO said, “A series of recent events have made it clear to me that Kate Gosselin and her contributions do not align with the authenticity which we set out to build almost a decade ago.”

Maybe she got an advance for her appearance on Celebrity Wife Swap!

I also think Kate Gosselin got work done. I’m not so sure of facelift but definitely a nose job. Two years ago, I was very unhappy with the size of my nose. To correct this aesthetic flaw, I eventually got rhinoplasty by Dr. Jerome Edelstein at Edelstein Cosmetic. The procedure worked great for me and I had no side effects. I absolutely like how my nose looks now! By the way, Kate looks better and prettier after these cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Stephen Greenberg does every type of surgery. Doesn’t specialize in one. He has scarred up a few women who had breast uplifts. He doesn’t do a good stitch. Look him up online. He runs a factory and is being sued by many.

She spent $ 17,500 on cosmetic surgery – and this is the same woman who is always crying poor, saying that she needs a reality show in order to put food on the table for her kids?!?

Those pictures of her on The View, the side view of her face for sure SCARY! If you ever need to scare someone just show them that picture, im so serious that is scary looking. I agree she looked better when she had the short Kate hairdo and she was with Jon in there old house. She was content with being a mother and not hungry for fame and being a celebrity. Kate your 15 minutes are up do us ALL A FAVOR stop trying to be famouse raise your kids and stop coming on every show that still wants you on for some unknown reason to me. And how was she able to afford her plastic surgery? She has 8 kids and NO JOB that pays money.

kate was making improvements when she started to get fit and put botox on her wrinkle forhead. now shes got out of hand and looks like a man trying to look like a woman. at her 30’s surgery is very unessasery. alot of woman at this age start feeling unsecure but they need to understand that in life people are going to grow up and naturally get old.

“can’t stand Kate Gosselin and wish she would just go away” agree w/ GiGi.

Gosselin is still just plain ugly !!! Very unappealing person !!! Go home to your kids, get that worthless father to do something !!!

Jon is not worthless! He has changed his life around and is not in the media spotlight. He has kept quiet and I know God has given him the strength to do it. He loves his children! kate refuses to block a Jon hater that has for a very long time post messages about how she hates Jon and has continually made the vilest, horrible remarks about his manhood. What mother would do that? kate would. She does not care if her children see these things or not. I think she is horrible! Close Family Members have confirmed that she is bi-polar. She refuses to take her meds. kate is also a parental alienator at its worse! She throws Jon under the bus, every single chance she gets! She still grifts begs for free things on twitter and people send her things and she won’t even thank them. Also there is another kate supporter that all she posts about is kate’s body and lusts after it and even knows very private things and kate will not block her. WHY? The kids are going to see this in the future, why would you let that happen? That woman fan is very scary. I feel so bad for those kids for all the abuse they suffered, including Jon and the dogs. They each, all 9 got a big dose of abuse everyday like clockwork. But she won’t do it forever, it will stop.

she is nearly unrecognizable. i think she is REALLY deeply disturbed… for someone in her position to be spending all of this money on her face when there was really nothing wrong with it, is shocking. she keeps obsessing and putting more and more money into her appearance. i didn’t really think much of the work after caring all those kids- she was still young and if she could afford to perk things up a bit… but now… there was nothing wrong with her nose, and she certainly didn’t need a face lift in her 30’s… i don’t know. she is seriously deeply unhappy, which is no secret or surprise, but manifesting itself in these ways and blowing so much money on it… wow… i hope her kids have college tuition trust funds that she can’t touch. she’s going to be one of those barbie or cat woman people one of these days…

I can’t can’t stand Kate Gosselin and wish she would just go away, but I really don’t think she has had any plastic surgery. Check out the neck wrinkles. Her nose looks no different.

GIGI!!! So 5 count them FIVE plastic surgeons said she HAD HER NOSE AND NECK AND FACE DONE!!! She is spending the kids money on herself on her twisted pursuit of being on TEEVEE! She has bipolar confirmed by 2 members of her immediate family! she refuses to take them. She is a child beater and abuser and a animal abuser! Can’t wait for Robert Hoffman’s book to come out, Kate Gosselin, How She Fooled the World! #TEAMGOSSELINKIDS #TEAMSHOKA
