Will Kate Gosselin Need More Plastic Surgery?

With her divorce from husband Jon Gosselin getting messier than ever, the rumors are also growing wilder, including the one that Kate Gosselin will be in an upcoming issue of Playboy magazine. But what plastic surgery will the reality star need to get her centerfold ready? 34-year old mother of eight Kate Gosselin has been open about her plastic surgery in the past, which includes a mommy makeover involving a tummy tuck and possible breast lift and augmentation (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kate Gosselin’s plastic surgery). Kate’s plastic surgery may also have included some liposuction as well as professional teeth whitening.
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Kate has been very open about having a tummy tuck a few years past. There were pictures that surfaced this summer of the reality star in her bikini while on vacation, and she looked great. Ms. Gosselin has also been very open about her strict diet and exercise routine. In addition to her tummy tuck it is rumored that she has also had a breast augmentation and lift. If she were to to pose for Playboy, she could possibly undergo some liposuction to her inner and outer thighs to give her a more smooth silhouette. Either way, for a woman who had 8 children I think she looks fabulous!”
Kate looks great and more plastic surgery may not have the great results Kate has enjoyed in the past, so the harried mother may want to leave well enough alone.
New York plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “It looks like Kate Gosselin has already had an abdominoplasty with nice result. She does not look like she needs more plastic surgery. Sometimes it is best to leave well enough alone.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Kate’s current look is the way to go, and as long as she continues in the direction she is going, she will have success. Any changes made to her face at this point would be premature and not be of benefit to her. “
Since the rumors of a Playboy spread first surfaced, Kate has shot them down saying they are false. But Make Me Heal thinks that the rumors may surface again and even prove to be true somewhere down the line.
Jon & Kate Gosselin Plus 8 Plus Plastic Surgery
Reality stars Jon and Kate Gosselin have been in the tabloids so much lately that Make Me Heal wasn’t at all surprised to see them openly declare their plastic surgery.
After giving birth to twins and then sextuplets, it is understandable that 34-year old Kate would be in dire need of a tummy tuck. Luckily, TLC, the network that airs the popular reality show paid for the expensive procedure, which can run upwards of $5,000. On a recent vacation with the kids, Kate sported a bikini, showing off the results of her abdominoplasty procedure.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn says, “Kate’s tummy tuck appears well-healed and well-performed. The most important aspect is that her scar is easily covered by the bikini. She looks great!”
In addition to her tummy tuck, Kate has also gone from a frowsy brunette to a spunky blonde, helping to show off her new found fame and teeth whitening procedures, which TLC also paid for both Kate and Jon to have.
Manhattan Plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Kate definitely looks improved from previous photos. She looks better rested, happier and has a bright smile.”
While Kate and TLC have openly admitted to the tummy tuck procedure, Kate may have had other body contouring procedures, like liposuction. Her face also looks to be less rounded, which could be thanks to some liposuction around the chin and a chin implant.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden says, “Kate Gosselin underwent a tummy tuck after the birth of her children but it’s not clear that it’s all she’s had done. Looking at recent photos of her in a bikini, she may have had liposuction of her thighs as well. In addition, her chin is much more well-defined in recent photos which could be the result of submental liposuction and a chin implant.”
In addition to the tummy tuck, Kate has also has reportedly become a “tanorexic,” hitting the tanning salon on a regular basis. Kate’s hair has also come up in tabloid stories, as it is rather unique and apparently gaining in popularity. While at the beauty salon, Kate also gets her nails done, leaving some to wonder how she has time to raise her large brood at home.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrrell J. Aston says, “Kate Gosselin is another reality star that wants everyone to know about her plastic surgery. Her transformation from an overweight small town housewife into a flat abs bikini babe has many people speechless. It has been reported that the 34-year old mother of 8 spends a lot of time pampering herself with salon trips. She gets her nails and hair done in addition to visiting a tanning salon frequently. It is debatable whether her priorities are in the right place or not, but at least her tummy tuck looks good.”
No tummy tuck is alike, and depending on the desired results, as well as what the surgeon has to work with, the tummy tuck may not be as perfect as desired.
Body plastic surgery expert Dr. John Di Saia explains, “I see her tummy tuck scar spanning the area outside that bikini and going up towards the hip. I also see a lower tummy bulge that maybe could be a bit smaller. She is a case of eight children with six being from one pregnancy and apparently had a free tummy tuck as a promotion after the last pregnancy. It is hard to determine what a tummy tuck in such a patient should look like. Much of this is operator dependent as well as dependent upon the nature of the tissues (thin or more healthy) and the patient’s healing capacity.”
While Kate has been open about her time spent under the knife, allowing film crews in on the surgery, it doesn’t seem that she has had any work above the neck.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Kate Gosselin has been open about her tummy tuck, but I don’t think she has had any facework, other than improving her hair and make-up.”
Kate isn’t the Gosselin who has benefited from plastic surgery. Her co-star on the show, and possible philanderer of a husband, Jon, has also benefited from plastic surgery.
In addition to teeth whitening procedures, Jon has also had hair transplants to help enhance his thinning hair.
Jon had what is classified as Norwood Class 5 hair loss pattern. He was treated with hair grafts at the New Hair Institute in one procedure where he received 2087.
Kate isn’t the only mother of multiples to go under the knife for cosmetic reasons, rather than simply popping out babies. “Octo-mom” Nadya Suleman looks suspiciously similar to actress Angelina Jolie to be entirely natural (See Make Me Heal’s story on Nadya Suleman’s plastic surgery).
While Jon and Kate definitely look great with their plastic surgery procedures, Make Me Heal hopes that some of the rumors of their personal life prove false and that they really are caring parents.
