Since she made her debut on Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2011, Melissa Gorga has been at the center of plastic surgery rumors. Being beautiful isn't easy, right? And while she was accused of undergoing four nose jobs by a co-star, she kept her cosmetic procedures secret until recently.
In 2016, she admitted to getting one nose job (not four, thank you very much Jacqueline Laurita), and opened up about her decision to go under the knife privately. "Let's be honest, it's the worst-kept secret that I've had a nose job, but it's my secret to tell, not hers," she said at the time. "Some people like to say, 'Hey, I injected this, tummy tucked this,' and that’s fine, too. It’s something that’s personal to me. It’s one of the very few things that is personal in my life at this point."

The 38-year-old continued, "I have children, and there are certain things I don’t feel like I need to blurt all over the world. That’s private, it has to do with me, myself and I. That was one of the things I wanted to keep to myself. Unfortunately, I had a crappy friend who has told the world for me."
While we think the mother-of-three looks stunning before and after the procedure, many fans are convinced she had more work done secretly. However, plastic surgery experts are not so convinced. "Aside from her rhinoplasty, she may have had some Botox in the forehead to keep the lines away and some fillers under the eyes to keep that area smooth," Dr. Andrew Miller, who has never treated Melissa, told Life & Style exclusively. "Other than that, there is not much to say." Dr. Vartan Mardirossian, also agreed. "Don't see much except for likely Botox to the forehead because her skin is smooth with no lines, filler to lips and possibly cheeks, along her rhinoplasty, of course," the facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, who has also never treated the reality star, added.
Haters should follow Melissa's advice: "The only life I envy is my own." Do you, girl!
