The actress who is now in her mid seventies has credited diet and exercise for her remarkable figure and stunning looks.
However, there is reason to believe that going under the knife may also be helping her stay in shape and youthful.
Raquel Welch used to have quite the ample breasts even back in the 60s when she was often spotted clad in skimpy bikinis. Even today, her allure does not seem to have waned, apparently because she claims that she performs yoga, but perhaps undergoing plastic surgeries may have also played some role.
For quite a long time now, Raquel Welch has been maintaining her looks with the help of plastic surgery, and rumor has it that she may have undergone a facelift and a rhinoplasty at some point.
Additionally, she may have also undergone a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and a browlift. The fact that she looks so young is likely because she gets dermal fillers like Botox, Dysport, Juvederm or Restylane injected into her face, and may have even gotten some fat grafting done as well.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon, also agrees that Raquel Welch looks way younger, despite her age. He believes she may have gotten a browlift and facelift performed “fairly conservatively,” while he also suspects her of Botox use, but also adds that she does not appear to be “overdone.”
Dr Anthony Youn, a Michigan-based plastic surgeon, also notices signs of Botox and/or Dysport use, as he points out that Raquel Welch’s forehead appears frozen and barely moves. He cites browlift as the reason behind her “nicely elevated” eyebrows.
For a woman in her seventies, Dr. Anthony believes that Raquel should have excess and puffy skin, but she does not, while her cheeks and lips are fuller, probably due to fat grafting and fillers. He also describes her nose as “chiseled.”
For a woman in her mid seventies, Raquel Welch does indeed look fantastic, but the reasons that she claims are behind her everlasting youth are not the only ones it seems.
