Has Vanna White had plastic surgery?

She currently does not look anything her age. This has given rise to the rumor that she may have had plastic surgery. The rumor has gained momentum because her older photos shows some form of sagging around the cheek area and a few wrinkles on the forehead. Now, when you see her, all the wrinkles and sagging have disappeared and her face looks much younger and fresher. This only gives fodder to the belief that her smooth face and tight skin are the result of plastic surgery and not exercising, diet changes, and/or good genes.

As there are no visible signs of surgical intervention on White’s face, it’s not so easy to pinpoint the exact types of plastic surgery that Vanna underwent in order to revitalize her look and skin. But most surgeons feel that there may have been a facelift, Botox and Blepharoplasty, i.e., surgery of the eyelids. Since her cheeks also look a lot fuller like a young lady, some surgeons are of the opinion that Vanna may also have had cheek implants.

Vanna may have taken the help of a really good plastic surgeon as the operation scars are not noticeable. But the before and after photos reveal the truth to the T.
