‘RHOC’ Star Tamra Judge Shares Post-Facelift Pics: “I Was Scared S—tless”
Unlike certain Housewives favorites, Tamra Judge isn’t afraid to open up when it comes to her plastic surgery procedures.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star opened up to Andy Cohen about her facelift on Watch What Happens Live and shared photos from the experience on Instagram earlier this week.
The 49-year-old told the talk show host she got the work done in honor of her 10th anniversary on the Bravo series.
“I call it a comeback. I don’t call it a facelift. That’s my Season 13 tagline,” she said on Monday, July 10.
The reality star revealed the reason behind the surgery was because her skin started to sag when she began losing weight due to her fitness competitions.
“I had my neck and lower face done. I’m not a big fan of the fillers, cause I feel like you look like a Cabbage Patch Kid, so I say, ‘Pull it, don’t plump it,’” she continued.
“So two weeks ago, I went and had a little tuck.”
The mother of four then took to social media to share photos of her new face.
“These pics were taken all within the first week. Yes I was scared sh—tless! But I've seen Dr. Ambe's work on my Mom and knew I was in good hands,” she wrote on Tuesday, July 11.
“I wanted a very natural look and it's exactly what he's known for. There was little pain and bruising involved (everyone is different) the hardest part for me was staying still for 2 weeks.”
Now that she’s nearly three weeks post-op, her face is starting to heal and she’s looking better than ever.
“On day 12 I got the stomach flu which sucked! Today it's been 17 days and I feel great, my neck is still stiff and my ears and jawline are slightly swollen and numb,” she revealed.
“That will all change in a few weeks. Incisions are behind my ear and hairline, under my chin.
She continued, “I'm open and honest about it because I want women to know that everyone gets old, even people on TV, and there is nothing wrong with growing old gracefully if that's what you want...... It's jut [sic] not for me!”
This is not the first procedure for Tamra, who also admitted to undergoing five boob jobs and having her nose done once.
