While actress Kristin Chenoweth has admitted in the past to getting Botox to help with migraines, fans have speculated that the 48-year-old has gone under the knife more times than she’d care to admit.
Life & Style spoke with multiple board-certified plastic surgeons to get to the bottom of the mystery surrounding Kristin’s changing face. Though they have never worked with the Tony Award winner, they gave insight as to what they think she may have gotten done.

“I think she looks a touch ‘done,’ but overall she looks good,” Dr. Anthony Youn says, while Dr. Kirk Brandow adds that she looks “a little plastic,” but feels that overall the Broadway star is “aging extremely well.”
Cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Mark, on the other hand, says Kristin may have gone overboard.
“She has way too much Botox in her forehead,” he explains, “which has left her with a heavy brow. I can barely see her beautiful eyes.”

Plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Hochstein believes Kristin had an eye-lift. “You can see the lifting of the outer corner of the eye,” he notes. The cost starts at about $3K.
“It looks like she takes great care of her skin,” aesthetic nurse specialist Jill Caruso says. “Her regimen could include lasers, retinoids, moisturizers, serums and daily SPF.” Laser treatments can run from $1.5K to $4K.
Dr. Brandow thinks Kristin looks good but is overdoing the fillers in her cheeks, creating “funny bulges in her laugh lines.” He estimates the cost of fillers at $2K per treatment.
“Her lips look like they’ve been plumped with an injectable like Juvéderm,” observes Dr. Youn. The price tag is $500 to $750 per syringe.
Still, the Wicked star says that her injections are purely for medical reasons, not cosmetic.
“When I was 35, I was having debilitating migraines about once a week,” she said back in 2011. “I went to my doctor in New York, and she said she wanted to give me five shots of Botox across my eyebrows. And I said, ‘Oh, no. I make my living through my facial expressions.’ And she said, ‘You’re not going to have a living if you can’t work.’ So I let her do it, and I haven’t had a full-blown headache since.”
Well, whether or not Kristin has gone under the knife more times than she’s saying, we still think she looks great!
Do you think she’s gone overboard?
