60 year old singer and actress Bernadette Peters looks so young that some have wondered if she has had plastic surgery. With nasolabial folds only appearing when she smiles and a taut and smooth neck, Peters' has been suspected of having a mini face lift with the combination of fillers like Botox and Restylane. Peter's eyes are free from bags under the eyes and overhanging skin over the eyes causing speculation that she may have had blepharoplasty also known as eyelid surgery. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Saia has said, "It is likely a bit of both. I’d bet she was not a big smoker and likely employed some good or better surgical talent."
Bernadette Peters: Good Plastic Surgery or Good Genes?

60-year old singer and actress Bernadette Peters doesn’t look a day over 40, leading Make Me Heal to wonder what her secret is. Is it good genes or good plastic surgery, or both?
At a recent book-signing event, Bernadette appeared with the same smooth, freckle-free skin and curly hair she has always had. The multiple Tony-award winning widow has only the faintest traces of crow’s feet and “creping” around her eyes. Bernadette doesn’t have an 11 stamped between her eyebrows or horizontal lines creasing her forehead. She has some parentheses around her mouth (aka nasolabial folds), but only when she smiles. Most amazingly, her neck is incredibly taut and firm and doesn’t give away her age and she doesn’t have the beginnings of jowls around her jawline, the way many people her age do. Bernadette’s eyes are wide open and free from under-eye bags and overhanging skin over the eyes. Also, her cleavage is as ample and smooth as ever.
Bernadette is notorious for staying out of the sun to help preserve her perfect cream-colored complexion, which definitely helps ward off freckles and wrinkles. But even so, she looks so good that she must have had some plastic surgery, maybe a mini facelift to keep her lower face rejuvenated. The wrinkle-free complexion may be explained by a combination of dermal injections and fillers like Botox and Restylane, as well as possibly laser treatments like CoolTouch, Active Fx, or Palomar’s Starluxe to keep her skin smooth. The eyes may have been subjected to a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), which would explain the lack of under-eye bags and excess skin on the lids. Of course, this is all speculative. It was a plastic surgery job well done, if it was done at all, because we can’t detect a thing, leading us to believe that Bernadette must have gotten plastic surgery done gradually throughout the years to avoid any drastic changes in her appearance. But as importantly, she inherited some amazing genes with her Italian ancestry and keeps a lifestyle that is conducive to youthfulness.
Plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia can’t detect any particular work on Bernadette either. On his blog, Dr. John Di Saia says, “It is likely a bit of both. I’d bet she was not a big smoker and likely employed some good or better surgical talent.”
Just goes to show you, smoking can make a big difference on your outside as well as your inside. If Bernadette is naturally flawless, it also shows just how damaging the rays of the sun can be. Bernadette likely uses a good skincare program and eats well as well as gets regular exercise.
As she has always been busty, she probably wears a supportive bra regularly. Also, she has no children, which helps as pregnancy and breast-feeding cause changes and sagging in the bosom. She may or may not have also had a breast lift to keep her girls riding high.
Bernadette Peters looks fantastic for 60, or any age for that matter, and her youth assures her many more years on the stage or screen.
