Based on her own admittance and rumors, she has had numerous Botox injections, brow lift surgeries, chemical peels, eyelid surgeries, laser skin resurfacing, and other plastic surgery procedures over the years.
According to reports, Joan had her first cosmetic surgery in 1965, which was an eyelift, to correct her vision impairment. This was merely the beginning of an astonishingly long list of plastic surgeries that followed. Joan had apparently been insecure about her appearance even before her first cosmetic surgery.
Her Russian Jewish ethnic background may have also made her insecure about the size of her nose, which is possibly the reason she had a rhinoplasty to get nose thinned.
It is also rumored that Joan had a large number of face lifts at quite a young age, which gave her face an extremely taut and very unnatural appearance. Her eyes started to look even more odd and unnatural when she had her crow’s feet and the sagging of her eyelids reduced through a browlift.
Additionally, she has apparently even had a ton of other plastic surgeries on her face, such as cheek lifts and implants pumped into her face.
After having gotten the size of her breasts reduced after childbirth, at some point or the other, Joan may have also undergone breast augmentation. Even Dr. David Shafer, a New York-based plastic surgeon, agrees that Joan looks “great for her age,” but he also adds that she certainly has an “operated look.” It is not much of a secret considering that she has not been shy about revealing her plastic surgeries.
Joan Rivers seems to have quite the obsession with plastic surgery. Despite already looking over-plasticized, Joan Rivers actually underwent her 734th plastic surgery quite recently.
