Did Kelly Ripa Undergo Plastic Surgery?
Kelly Ripa is well known for her early role as Hayley Vaughan on the series All My Children from 1990 to 2002. She is also a popular host for her show Live! with Kelly, interviewing celebrities and finding interesting stuff about them. As Kelly Ripa appears on television with a slim body (after having 3 kids!) and a “never aging” face, rumors of Kelly Ripa undergoing plastic surgery surfaced. At Kelly Ripa’s age of 46, signs of aging like saggy skin and wrinkles will start to creep in. It is not surprising that Kelly Ripa would want to hide such aging signs. But did she resort to plastic surgery? Some of Kelly Ripa’s plastic surgery speculations include botox injections, nose job and breast augmentation.
Kelly Ripa has achieved a lot as a talk show host. In fact, she became so popular that The Hollywood Reporter named her to be one of the Most Powerful People in Media in 2014. Kelly Ripa started humbly as a regular dancer on Dancin’ On Air in 1986. Then she got discovered by talk show host legend Regis Philbin after Kathie Lee Gifford left. Described as a “petite ball of fire” by Regis Philbin, Kelly Ripa went on to help increase the number of viewers for the show. It was a huge success as their show audience amounted to more than 6 million viewers daily.

Compare that to a recent interview Kelly Ripa had on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. She gets hotter as she grows older:
Kelly Ripa and Botox Injections
Botox is one of the best known remedies for fine lines and wrinkles. Despite lots of bad publicity over botched botox procedures, many still undergo the risks to attain their perfect face. Botox has to be used in the right place and with the right dosage. Any mistake will result in a terrible unnatural looking face.
For Kelly Ripa, she is frank with her Botox use. She admitted having used botox on her face. But this is common practice for many celebrities. But what is not common is that Kelly Ripa actually used botox on her armpits. Well, that is rather unheard of. But why did she do that? According to rumors, the botox in her armpits might help to reduce sweating. Well, she has yet to share if the procedure is indeed effective for that purpose.
See how Kelly Ripa grew more attractive over the years:
When you look at Kelly Ripa before and after photos, you can see that her earlier photos looked more natural and chubby while her recent photo looks slightly unnatural. Some work must have been done to achieve this effect. But overall, her face still looks alright. Yes she looks younger than her real age but it is only achieved with the supporting help of botox.
Kelly Ripa and Nose Job Rumors
Nose job, another favorite of celebrities, is used to alter the shape of the nose. With today’s technology and techniques, much research has been done to minimise the chances of a mishap. A nose job gone wrong is costly. So costly that sometimes money cannot solve the problem. A good example is what happened to Michael Jackson. Even years of revision rhinoplasty cannot work.
Some observers say that Kelly Ripa’s before and after photos show different nose shapes. Some claim that her earlier photos show a much rounder nose tip with a broader nose bridge. To some extent it is true. The recent photos of Kelly Ripa show a much more matured lady, albeit with sharper facial features.
But Kelly Ripa has never admitted to having a nose job. Though it is hard to explain the change in nose shape, we will take Kelly Ripa’s words that no nose job was performed.
Kelly Ripa and Breast Augmentation Rumors
Breast enhancement is at the top of the wishlist for many women. Many want the perfect figure but are unwilling to go through the pain of surgery. Like the nose job, despite warnings and bad reputation, ladies still flock to get their boobs done. But did Kelly Ripa do anything to her boobs?
Upon closer examination, some of Kelly’s photos show a much bigger bosom. In recent times, Kelly Ripa appeared with a flatter chest. With the changes in her boob size, many netizens suspect that she might have gone for a breast augmentation first to increase her bosom size and then went for a breast reduction surgery.
But these are still just speculations as Kelly Ripa has never admitted to having breast implants or any breast augmentation surgery.
Overall, Kelly Ripa has remained a beautiful woman despite entering her late 40s. It is indeed tough to remain competitive in the talk show industry. With so many competitors all fighting for higher ratings, it is inevitable that Kelly Ripa has to enhance her looks to stay ahead of the game. She has indeed achieved a great deal in her career. So rather than focus solely on her facial and body enhancements, perhaps its also important to appreciate her contributions to the entertainment industry.
