Kate Gosselin Plastic Surgery – Is She Really Addicted To It?

Kate Gosselin – Are The Accusations True?

According to the media Kate Gosselin plastic surgery is a proven fact. She had so many procedures done on her face that she now looks like an entirely different person. And when the tabloids recently came up with some new evidence supporting this claim, the news started to spread around once again. But is there any truth to the stories?

Who Is Kate Gosselin?

She was born on March 28, 1975 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Her birth name was Katie Irene Kreider, and she changed it after marrying Jon Gosselin in 1999. They had eight children together, sextuplets and twins.

The couple became famous after filming the TV show “Jon and Kate plus 8”. It centered on their everyday family life. After the couple divorced, the show got renamed to “Kate plus 8”, but was eventually canceled. Kate had a lot of trouble finding success since then, and even declared herself as being broke at one time. Recently the show that made her famous became popular once again, after one season was filmed for TLC.

There are rumors that Kate Gosselin became a plastic surgery addict, and here are some of the procedures she allegedly had.


One thing that the doctors can agree on, is that Kate definitely had this procedure done. It probably happened somewhere before the filming of the new season of “Kate plus 8”.

There are a couple of noticeable differences that we can see right off the bat. Skin now looks a lot tighter around the chin and there are no freckles and frowns, even when she smiles. These are all signs that point out to facelift procedure. Gosselin surely had some excess skin removed to be able to look like this.

It is just a question of how she has done it, because there are a couple if different ways. First, a series of smaller incisions are made to stretching the skin, while removing the excess one. Small scars are noticeable in this case, if the procedure is not done in the right way, and Botox injections are used to fix the damage. The other way to do this is to insert small amounts of body fat in certain parts of the face, making the skin stretch more naturally. And by looking at Kate Gosselin, we believe she opted to have this second type of procedure.

Nose Job

Another thing that is noticeably different about Kate is her nose. These changes were done with a procedure called rhinoplasty. She never had a problem with the size of her nose, but the doctors changed the shape a little bit. It is now a lot sharper at the tip. The way in which this is accomplished is by removing some tissue from the top of the nose, making it pointier, and giving it a better definition.

And what is the cost of these improvements?

According to the board of doctors, it is estimated that it took around $10,000 for a facelift, and another $7,500 for the rhinoplasty. This is not a small price to pay for someone who is allegedly having some money problems. Perhaps that appearance on “Celebrity Wife Swap!” was enough to cover for this, as she was preparing for another season of her show. But then again, you cannot put a price on beauty.


Kate Gosselin has a tattoo on her left ankle. It is a small drawing of Winnie the Pooh. She earlier had a rose tattoo on her stomach, but that was removed with a surgical procedure when she gave birth to sextuplets.
