Dolly Parton Reveals the Cosmetic Procedures She’s Had Done

Dolly Parton Reveals the Cosmetic Procedures She’s Had Done

Dolly Parton has never been secretive about the various cosmetic procedures she’s undergone over the years. In an interview with Howard Stern, the Queen of Country opened up about her approach to plastic surgery, as well as the very real risks associated with going under the knife.

The conversation began with Stern saying what we’re all thinking – especially after that halftime show on Thanksgiving. “You look f—ing fantastic,” Stern said with sincerity during a recent episode of The Howard Stern Show. “If I was going to do something to myself, I would go to your doctors. Do people call you all the time and say, ‘Dolly, how do you do it?’”

“Oh yeah,” Dolly replied. “And I always say, ‘Just find the best doctors.’ Some of my celebrity friends, I give them the names of the doctors that I’ve used.”

At 77 years old, Dolly Parton has had her fair share of cosmetic procedures. However, she’s never lost sight of the fact that it’s surgery intended to alter your appearance, and therefore comes with a rather long list of risks.

“You’ve just got to be very careful not to overdo it because you never know. Anytime you go under the knife, you could come out looking not good,” Parton explained.

“You just never know how you’re going to heal,” she continued. “You never know what’s going to go. So you absolutely need to find the best doctors, the most talked about doctors or the ones highly recommended if you’re going to do anything (to) your face.”

Dolly Parton Says She Sticks to ‘Little’ Cosmetic Procedures

Dolly Parton is known or believed to have undergone a variety of cosmetic procedures over the years, including a facelift, lip fillers, botox, a nose job, and breast implants. She cautioned, however, that altering your face is a particularly risky business.

“You can cover up stuff if somebody screws up things on your body but, boy, if you live with your face out there, you’ve got to be careful,” Parton stressed.

“So I try to do just little bits at a time. I don’t do really big stuff,” she said, adding that she sticks to “fillers, Botox, [and] Juvederm.”

But even with the fillers, Parton does her best to take it easy. “Only when I have to do something,” she said. “And even then, I try to be careful.”

Even with her openness to cosmetic procedures, Dolly Parton knows that it has the power to “change your expressions” and can even “change your personality,” if you aren’t careful.

Because of this, the country music icon gets nervous before going in for any procedure to this day. “It’s always a risk,” she said. “And anytime I go in for anything, I think, ‘Oh lord, please let this all work out fine.’”
