It seems like the mark of being famous includes attracting constant plastic surgery rumors and “Real Housewives of New York City” (RHONY) star Bethenny Frankel isn’t immune to the talks.
The successful entrepreneur behind the Skinny Girl empire, however, handles all the buzz about her face and body with ease. In fact, she openly discusses the procedures she has and hasn’t done in the media.
For instance, she once gamely sat down in a talk show to address the obvious changes on her face and jaw. She also publicly confirmed getting botox, but denied getting a facelift or more invasive surgeries.
Several years ago, Bethenny also admitted she went under the knife to correct her sagging boobs. Eventually, she went back to the same plastic surgeon to remove her breast implants because she felt it wasn’t right for her body.
But as much as Bethenny speaks about her augmentations, other cosmetic surgeons haven’t failed to publicly warn her about becoming a victim of botched procedures. The more important concern for this star’s transformation is — will she go too far with plastic surgery?
Before & After Photos
Let’s take a look at Bethenny’s photos before and after she became famous and see how much cosmetic surgery has changed her appearance. We’ll find out why the famous mogul doesn’t seem to age.
Here we go…
Did Bethenny Frankel Have Jaw Reduction Surgery?
Bethenny outright said that she did not have jaw reduction surgery. She did not get her jawline shaved, despite speculations. The difference on her face is also not because she’s suffering from bulimia, as per rumors.
Speaking on the show “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen, the RHONY star admitted that her face shape did become smaller because of one procedure. The reduction of Bethenny’s jaw is courtesy of botox, which she has been doing for many years for a medical reason.
Apparently, Bethenny suffers from temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and while the botox helps relieve the pain, it has also made her jaw gradually smaller.
Top plastic surgeons like Dr. Jonathan Sykes and Dr. Alexander Rivkin told Life & Style magazine that the change in Bethenny’s jaw has given her a softer heart-shaped face, and she looks much more feminine than her previous square-shaped face.
Has Bethanny Had A Boob Job?
Bethenny opened up about her boob job on her reality TV show six or seven years ago. She detailed that she had the procedure in her late 20s, after losing a lot of weight and her bra size changed.
She shared that her boobs were small but sagging then, so asked for implants to give it a lift. Bethenny’s breasts then became a size D with implants but she admitted that she didn’t feel right about her new boob size.
When she earned enough money and established a successful business years later, Bethenny had her implants removed.
Did She Get Face Lift & Botox?
While it has been established that Bethenny gets botox primarily for a medical condition, the star denies that she ever had a facelift. Cosmetic surgeons, however, think otherwise. They say she also gets regular fillers on her cheeks and even more botox on her forehead because Bethenny’s face is still without wrinkles and lines even when she’s in her late 40s.
But New York cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Guida told Daily Mail that Bethenny might be getting too many injections, so her skin sometimes looks too smooth and unnatural. Another surgeon said that there have been instances where Bethenny appears stiff and without facial expressions, and that could be because of bad botox injections.
Does Bethanny Have A Nose Job?
Even as she has admitted to her cosmetic enhancements, there’s one exception. Bethenny said that she’s never had a nose job in her life.
Observers and fans of RHONY, however, think Bethenny’s nose slightly changed over the years. Allegedly, she had rhinoplasty to subtly alter the tip of her nose but she kept her bridge untouched.
Can you see the difference in the nose shape?
While Beth isn’t the most beautiful or the hottest celebrity in Hollywood, but she definitely is one of the most successful. Let’s see how her looks and styles have changed through the years.
When she was young, Bethenny Frankel had naturally curly hair. As a teen, she was pretty but had a big face and was slightly chubby. The star said that she still had baby fat during high school.
Despite not getting many career opportunities, Bethenny showcased her talent in acting in the small budget movie “Hollywood Hills 90028.” She had a slightly masculine facial shape then.
Bethenny worked as a production assistant on “Saved By the Bell” and was part of the show “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart.” This year riddled the reality TV celebrity with skin problems, with her botched skin and laugh lines clearly showing. Guess she has yet to come up with a regimented skin care?
She shows her lovely smile with a set of perfect white teeth in this photo, though.
Bethenny became part of the reality TV hit series “The Real Housewives of New York City,” where she confessed to a boob job and joked that her cup size made her look like a stripper. But after detailing what she did to her bust, she only had more scrutiny from her followers, who said that her breasts appeared to be lopsided and badly-shaped.
This was the year she released the book “Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself” and debuted a great body as well. People thought she had liposuction to look thin but Bethany said it’s due to diet and workout.
Bethenny welcomes the birth of Bryn, her daughter with husband Jason Hoppy. Soon after, the botox rumors grew louder and even cosmetic surgeons think the star had cheek implants that added volume to her cheekbone. Doesn’t her face cheeks look plumpier here?
Skinnygirl became a huge success at an estimated $100 million, while Bethenny appeared to have more pregnancy weight loss with her slim body and shapely legs, when she celebrated her success in a hot pink dress.
Her marriage to Jason Hoppy ended after three years and that’s when the eating disorder rumors sparked. Is her body too skinny for this bikini? Fans suspected she had a tummy tuck to flatten her abs.
What do you think?
Bethenny attended a RHONY event looking like she just had a browlift or was this because of great makeup? Her perfectly shaped eyebrows and sexy hairstyle belied her age. She looked young and pretty in pink!
Now a lot older, Bethenny appeared to have gotten more plastic surgeries to slow down aging. Top plastic surgeons noticed the lip injections to plump her thinning lips and suspected the chin implants to soften her angular chin. Bethenny might have also gotten an eye lift to open up her eyes and make it slightly bigger.
This gorgeous multi-millionaire looked ageless as she attended a gala in New York. While she denied getting a facelift, her skin appeared perfectly smooth and tightened.
Her volumized eyelashes emphasized her lovely eyes extremely well and we like the classic simplicity of her choice of earrings for this event.

Bethenny has made a lot of confessions on her life on her reality TV series, including the plastic surgery procedures she has gotten to change her appearance. However, she clarified rumors that suggested she had her jawbone shaved and instead admitted that only botox was responsible for the reshaping and softening of her jaws.
She also confessed to augmenting her boobs on RHONY and in many interviews. However, she denied getting more cosmetic surgeries, despite the rumors, and particularly proclaimed she never had a nose job.
Followers who observe her on television and on social media, however, think she has gotten a face lift and other anti-aging procedures so that she keeps her youthful body and face. Doctors also warned that Bethenny might be having too much botox, but the star and entrepreneur believes she’s not addicted to cosmetic enhancements.
