Here we go again! Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson has a history of loving plastic surgery and injectables — so we weren’t surprised to hear that fans and followers think she may have had a bit more work done, based on a recent social media post. In a quest to discover exactly what’s going on with the 56-year-old’s face, Life & Style spoke exclusively with Norman M. Rowe, MD., board-certified plastic surgeon with Rowe Plastic Surgery, to get his expert opinion on what Vicki’s latest procedures may have been.
“Vicki’s newly slim face could be a combination of a liquid facelift and Kybella treatments,” the seasoned doc, who has not treated Vicki, told Life & Style. “The liquid facelift involves injecting fillers into her cheeks to attempt to elevate and resuspend her face without performing a facelift. Kybella is an injectable treatment that helps drastically improve chin contouring and eliminate the ‘double chin’ without the need of invasive surgery. These are very common procedures that I perform on my patients on a daily basis. Overall, she’s looking more youthful than ever.”
The post that had everyone questioning the status of Vic’s plastic surgery roster was actually a pretty cute one, but some fans and followers could only focus on the RHOC star’s face.
“All dressed up for a night out with @tamrajudge and the ladies. Should be a fun night. #bravo #season14 #rhoc,” she captioned a cute selfie pic with costar Tamra Judge in the backseat of a car, most likely during filming for season 14 of the show.
“Vicki looks like a wax face,” one user wrote harshly, while another was even more savage: “Will they be able to fix the face work?” But most fans were in agreement with Dr. Rowe — the Orange County OG really has been looking more youthful and happier than ever.
Vic has always been open about her obsession with plastics, dating all the way back to 2012 when she revealed a nose job, chin implants, and fat injections in her face to smooth out wrinkles. Fast forward to 2016, she confessed to more having even more surgery when she told Bravo TV boss Andy Cohen she had recently undergone an eye lift.
“Of course I did,” she disclosed at the time about the surgery rumors. “I’m not going to deny it. Doesn’t it look great?!”
Yeah, girl, you definitely do.
