Barbara Walters unrecognizable after plastic surgery

Left: Barbara Walters 2011. Right: Barbara Walters 2010

Barbara Walters, 82, showed up last week at Paul McCartney’s wedding looking very different. She’s obviously had some plastic surgery, giving her a rounder, softer look. It’s believed she’s been given a smoother complexion and more defined jawline. The talk show host underwent similar surgery in 2007, and although she denied having a procedure, plastic surgeon Anthony Youn said at that time: “She appears to have had her eyelids done (both upper and lower) and a facelift. Her eyes are free of loose, excess skin, which is extremely unusual for someone her age. Her upper eyelids show especially little sagging skin, and look as young as someone in her 40’s.” Walters, who has only admitted to having had botox in the past, is now almost unrecognizable – can you tell it’s her in the picture on the left?

Is this an improvement?

    I can’t believe that’s her. Why do people do this stuff to themselves?

    wow.. looks like the pic on the left is the after shot… the doctor that performed this surgery should be banned from all surgeries. Totally disgusting

    Excuse my idiotness the pic on the right should be the after pic.

    That plastic surgery won’t fool anyone.Sure she can get rid of the wrinkles on her face but her whole body and her voice and the way she’s moves still says she’s elderly.

    Whoa. Not good.

    Roger your comment about the doctor being banned is the most retarded thing I heard all day. That’s what happens when people do that stuff to themeselves. You dont look the same as you were before.

    Oh come on – you can’t be serious! She’s been really sick since 2010. Heart Surgery, if I’m not mistaken… So, I doubt she’d even be a candidate for plastic surgery just yet! How are you allowed to “print” this utter rubbish!

    YELLOW JOURNALISM at it’s finest!

    The picture on the right is obviously a PR shot taken and touched up! The picture on the left seems to be some candid shot of her – with a different hair style and colour – along with totally different make up that makes her look washed out!

    Congratulations – you’ve taken journalism to a new low!

    I’m having trouble understanding how, “obviously had some plastic surgery, giving her a rounder, softer look” can equal “…more defined jawline”. Aren’t the two opposites by nature?

  11. manup • October 21, 2011 @ 7:26 PM

    Hey Kasey if you have any sense of what is right then what that doctor did to her face IS NOT RIGHT!!!… half the time these celebs come out looking worse then they did before the surgery… why would a doctor even proceed with doing it? money!!!!

    She looks like garbage much like my last girlfriend.

  13. Reva • October 23, 2011 @ 3:54 AM

    Beauty comes from within, that’s all I care about. If she’s honest, has integrity and treats people with dignity and respect aka follows the golden rule, she is beautiful at any age to me, plastic surgery or not, in sickness and in health. That goes for everyone. If you have nothing good to say, why bother saying anything at all.

    This is a visual representation of the inner ugliness that our society infuses into us. She looks like Senator Palpatine in Episode III now. She’ll need a new apprentice… one far younger and more powerful.

    I don’t see her in the pics as a women who looks in her 40’s, but she appears younger then her 82 years. Anyways Good talk show host,that is more important to me then appearances.

  16. Chris • October 24, 2011 @ 1:09 PM

    The two pictures look the same to me…….

  17. The Intolerant • October 24, 2011 @ 11:43 PM

    She’s a soon-to-be corpse. I mean, I used to play with He-Man action figures as a child. Even Skeletor didn’t look that bad. Oh, wait…

  18. Thibz • October 26, 2011 @ 3:32 AM

    The picture on the right looks much better..Did Tribute mess up the order? If not she looks worse now sadly. However she looks pretty good for her age.

    It is true that the images above look as if they are in reverse order. Looking at her today, however, after the surgery has settled down she looks terrific. The sad truth is that if she had not had surgery (and I image there has been more than one) she would not still be on TV.
