As a matter of fact, her appearance would fool anyone into thinking that she is probably in her fifties or sixties.
However, rumor has it that the reason her appearance continues to defy age is because she has undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries over the years in order to make herself appear younger than she really is.
By now, Barbara’s skin should be saggier than it is and her jawline and neck cannot possibly be so tight without some artificial help. These might a result of a combination of a facelift and neck lift.
The fact that her platysmal muscles are not prominent and sticking out, and that her neck looks so firm and nice is also because of her alleged neck lift.
Barbara’s eyes should also be so wide open, and there should be heavy drooping skin under her eyes, along with eye bags, but none of these can be seen. This apparently means that Barbara may have gotten any loose and sagging skin around her eyes trimmed off by undergoing a lower and upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).
Barbara may have also undergone a browlift or forehead lift since her forehead appears to be so youthful, but these type of surgeries are extremely hard to prove.
The fact that Barbara looks at least twenty years younger than she actually is suggests that she may have undergone multiple facelifts that have taken off such a large number of years from her face. Dr. Anthony Youn, a plastic surgeon, also agrees that Barbara looks great for her age and that she may have certainly undergone multiple cosmetic surgery procedures.
Dr. Anthony suspects her of having undergone face lifts, and possibly blepharoplasty, as well as a browlift surgery at some point. Although Barbara has most likely undergone plastic surgery in abundance, but what makes her one of the exceptions is that the results have turned out rather great and age-deying.
