Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transformation included a facial feminization surgery in March of this year — which an expert reveals is an unbelievably expensive procedure. Yep, we’re talking five figures!
There’s no denying that Caitlyn Jenner, 65, looks amazing. However, her new look didn’t come cheap. According to professional opinion, the I Am Cait star’s image overhaul roughly cost $70,000! Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon Dr. David Alessi is dishing on how much money went into Ms. Jenner’s new womanly features. Read on for all the details!
As explained in her sensational Vanity Fair feature, Caitlyn underwent an arduous 10-hour surgery to soften the features on her face to appear more feminine. Obviously, the results were incredible — but they were also pretty pricey!
Dr. David, who performs on average 10-12 facial feminization surgeries on male-to-female transgender patients each year, explains the six tune-ups he believes Caitlyn had done — just from looking at her new face.
“Rhinoplasty can run anywhere between $9,000 and $15,000,” the Alessi Institute surgeon tells Page Six. “I think she’s had some facial rejuvenation surgery also — that can run $25,000 in and of itself. She’s had the brow lift — that can be between $11,000 and $12,000. She’s had the cheek implants — that’s between $6,000 and $8,000. She’s had her Adam’s apple shaved and that can run anywhere between $6,000 to $10,000. She’s had Botox to the [jaws], which is about $800.” Whoa!
Dr. David also notes that many patients who decide to have this surgery come back to their surgeons for regular maintenance. He even suggests that Caitlyn will likely do the same. “They may want to tweak things,” he says. “Again, she’s going to want to stay as good-looking as she can for as long as she can. I’m sure she’s going to have little tweaks here and there.” Do you, girl!
In making her brave transition, Caitlyn has received tons of praise from public figures. Even President Barack Obama, 53, has lent his support! But the former Olympian has also been hit by a handful of haters, too. The latest deplorable human to say something nasty? Rush Limbaugh.
“How can you become a woman if you haven’t had the chopadickoffamy?!” he insensitively said on Nancy Grace‘s show, making up his own word for the procedure. “Why is it mandatory to live for a year before you have the ‘bottom surgery?’” Hey Rush, didn’t your mom teach you that if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all? #SMH.
