Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge revealed her post-surgery photos from her facelift after showing off the finished product on Watch What Happens Live.
Being open and honest about plastic surgery
Tamra Judge wants to “keep it real” with her fans by sharing photographs of her plastic surgery journey on Instagram just two weeks after the procedure, the Daily Mail reported.
The Bravo reality star said that she decided to post the grisly pictures of her face right after the surgery and throughout her recovery because she wanted to be “open and honest” and that even people on TV get “old.”
Tamra added that there was nothing wrong with “growing old gracefully,” but it just wasn’t for her.
Judge’s husband, Eddie, was spotted in one of the photos as she is being wheeled out of the hospital, covering her face with her gown.
Showing off her new face
Many of the images still showed Tamra with the plastic surgeon’s markings dotted all over her face.
The Real Housewives of Orange County star credited her new face to Dr. Milind Ambe of Newport Beach.
Tamra said that the worst part of the whole surgery recovery process for her was “staying still for 2 weeks.”
I’m getting an overwhelming amount of messages about my surgury. I thought I’d post some of your answers here. My doctors name is Dr. Milind Ambe of Newport Beach, @milindambemd you’ve probably seen him on the show before. These pics were taking all within the first week. Yes I was scared shitless! But I’ve seen Dr. Ambe’s work on my Mom and knew I was in good hands. 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. 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. That will all change in a few weeks. Incision are behind my ear and hairline, under my chin. If you have any personal questions send me an email contactTamra@yahoo.com. 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 not for me!????. I like to keep it real! #lowerfacelift #eyetuck. #callitacomeback????

She also revealed that she had battled with the flu on the 12th day of recovery, but by the 17th day, she was ready to share her photos with the world, according to Page Six.
The 49-year-old appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live Monday evening to reveal the results.
Judge told the Bravo host that she had her “neck and lower face done,” saying she wanted to avoid fillers and Botox because she felt like she would look like a “Cabbage Patch Kid.”
When Cohen referred to her surgery as a facelift, she corrected him and said that she’d rather call it a “comeback.”
The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered for its 12th season on Monday night before Watch What Happens Live aired.
Tamra said that she was celebrating 10 years of starring on the hit Bravo reality series.
Season 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County got some of the highest ratings in the series’ history. Season 12 is expected to be a full of drama and entertainment.
