Kate Gosselin Plastic Surgery: More Than Just a Tummy Tuck?

By June 23, 2009

Follow me on:

I have never been a fan of Jon & Kate Plus 8. There. I said it. However, with all of the buzz surrounding their "big announcement", I found myself watching last night.

I never made it to the actual announcement, and don't care much about the kids' "crooked houses". What interests me is Kate Gosselin's face. It is public knowledge that a very kind plastic surgeon donated his services to give Kate a tummy tuck after giving birth to sextuplets left her with quite a large apron of extra skin hanging from her abdomen. There has also been speculation that she may have had her breasts lifted and/or enhanced with breast implants. But noone, to my knowledge, has said anything about her face.

Admittedly, I hadn't seen a lot of the show before last night. But I'd have to have been living under a rock on the dark side of the moon to have been shielded from all of her media appearances. And last night's Kate was a much tighter-faced, much smoother, softer, and shinier version of the somewhat haggard visage I've observed previously in paparazzi photos.

So did Kate sneak away for some rejuvenation work on her much-publicized recent vacation with the kids (and the now-infamous bodyguard)? Looks to me like she may have had some Botox, along with laser skin resurfacing and non-surgical skin tightening. Of course, I guess it might have been great makeup artists and uber-flattering lighting. Either way, I have to say, she's looking pretty darn good.

Do you think Kate has had work done to her face? Share your thoughts.

So what if she did? She looks great and I am proud of her.. What makes it our business if she has had 1 million procedures? Ppl need to leave her alone.

I think it’s really sad what happened between these two. Had they not been on TV, maybe they would still be together and happy. But then they wouldn’t be able to give their kids all the things that they have. If Kate did have surgery on her face, I think she only did it because of the pressure of being on TV. If they hadn’t agreed to it, maybe they could be sitting at home with the kids instead of being in every magazine across the country. You live and learn, I guess

I agree that it is her business if she gets surgery of any kind. I would get plenty if I could afford to. Let’s face it, we live in the real world where a good part of a woman’s worth is based on her looks. It’s just how it is. Coupled with an increasing need for men to have younger women the competition is getting stiff for us women nearing 50 and still looking for Mr. Right.
As far as the show and the consequences and benefits for their children, they have made every choice full well knowing what they were doing. Except for in the beginning, I imagine they had no idea. But they did find out quickly, years ago as a matter of fact. They have chosen lifestyle and fame over their marriage and the true well-being of their children. PERIOD. I can’t say I would do any different if given the opportunity though. Once you have any degree of fame or money it is almost impossible to give it up. Who wants to go back to annonymity. As humans we will make up every justification to keep those balls rolling.

Ppl will leave her alone when she GOES AWAY! As long as she keeps this show going with the child labor paying for her plastic surgery she is asking for it.
