Bernadette Peters Plastic Surgery: Before and After Facelift, Botox
Plastic Surgery Before and After- Bernadette Peters
Plastic surgery is a very interesting topic lately. More and more people are engaging in the act of going under the knife to try to attain an impossible level of beauty, whether it be for attention or to help feel better about themselves.
A lot of them choose not to speak out about the surgeries however, in fear of being seen as unworthy of the love of their fans or of being too focused on appearance. Others just choose to not share their private lives with the entire world. Fans, however, cannot help but pry and try to find out as much as possible about those they love. Even people who are haters want to know what is up with the celebrities they despise.
Celebrities tend to have the surgeries done to try to stay recent and youthful. A lot of them, particularly females, are admired for their youthful appearance and attractiveness. If a women ages then she may be seen as less admirable, which is disgusting, and that results in a lot of them going through horribly dangerous procedures to try to stay youthful. The practice can be quite upsetting as a lot of the people do it purely to be loved by others. The surgeries can, however, sometimes make people feel better about themselves and can boost their confidence.
From male heartthrobs to talented actresses that have aged and become less recent; celebrities of all types have sworn by the knife and their surgeons. The surgeries, however, can end very poorly and sometimes make the person look fake, abnormal, or like plastic.
The actress we will be looking at today is Bernadette Peters; a lady that is admired and considered extremely beautiful. Her elegant curls and gorgeous voice have proved to last the years. It seems like even she decided to take part in the idea of plastic surgery. Her appearance was not changed drastically though, thankfully. She seems to have had more minor surgeries done to not look too fake.
Who Exactly Is Bernadette Peters?
If you have not heard of Bernadette Peters, or maybe you have and you just cannot place a face to the name, then maybe hearing her nickname will help; the queen of Broadway. Bernadette Peters is 69 years old and was born on February 28th 1948 in New York City.
Bernadette Peters was only married once, to Michael Wittenberg, and is now widowed as he died in 2005. They got married in in 1996 and had never gotten divorced. They did not have any kids, and I am not quite sure why, but that is okay.
Peters started acting as a child and continued as a teenager. She acted in both films and TV shows and was praised for some of the earlier work she had done, such as her part in The Muppet Show in 1976 and her part in The Carol Burnett Show in 1991.
Along with acting in Broadway, she has also recorded a total of six solo albums and several single songs. She had regular solo concerts while she also worked in Broadway.
Peters is actually one of the most critically acclaimed Broadway performers, and has been nominated for an award 13 times and has won 5 awards in total. She has quite the list of achievements, and one of the awards won was even a Woman of the Year award. She truly is an inspiration, as she worked hard and is incredibly talented.

What Has She Had Done?
Bernadette Peters has caused quite a talk about whether or not she has indeed gone under the knife. A lot of people ask, genes or surgery? It really is a hard question as there is no solid proof to either, but instead photographs and small pieces of possible evidence. Her face looks as good as it did when she was younger, despite her almost being 70 years old. There has to have been something that helped cause her skin to stay so vibrant and young. It is very possible that Peters has had a facelift as well as an eyelift to tighten her aging skin.
Both procedures are very common but can have a lot of complications. Facelifts especially can make a person look extremely fake. Tight skin can be nice, but skin that is tight enough to restrict facial movement and emotion is absolutely horrible. Some actors and actresses have stone hard foreheads or plastic looking skin caused from their surgeries.
Facelift – The facelift is one of the more common procedures as it helps to tighten the skin and provides a youthful glow. This procedure is very possibly the cause of Bernadette Peters youthful and tight skin. She does not show her age at all and has little to no wrinkles. The facelift can turn out quite horrid, but she seems to have come out looking rather good. Her surgeon must have been talented.
Eyelift – Another way to create a more youthful looking face is to have your eyelids lifted. Eyelids tend to droop, much like other skin, as we age. The drooping eyelids can help make a face look older as well as sadder, so a lot of people like to have their eyelids “lifted” along with their facelifts. Peters could have also had her eyelids lifted as hers do not seem as droopy as other people her age. The possibility is quite high, but I am not for sure about it.
Has She Spoken Out About the Rumors?
No, Bernadette Peters has not actually spoken out about the rumors, as far as I know, so most of it is speculation. She is without a doubt a beautiful woman and has aged with almost no proof. Her skin is as perfect as it was when she was younger, making it hard to believe that it is just genes. That is what helped spark the whole debate: genes or surgery? I believe surgery, but a very well done surgery that managed to make her look young without making her look horribly fake.
Whether or not the surgeries had actually occurred or not are all just speculation from fans who see a difference between the before and after photos of her throughout her recent years. As she aged she somehow forgot to, well, physically age. Maybe it is just genes, but that is highly unlikely. The changes are minor but appear to be caused by some sort of well-trained surgeon.
Plastic surgery is definitely an interesting but hard topic, as it brings up other topics such as gender equality and the terrible beauty standards put on women, how celebrities are treated based on appearance, and what you should do for fame. What are your thoughts on plastic surgery and how Bernadette Peters looks now?
She is still beautiful and talented, despite being widowed and aging. She continues to act and sing even today. Whether or not she had any surgeries, she is still a wonderful role model and a great idol. Her appearance does not have to change that. It is quite the mystery as to how she stays so young though. We will not truly know the truth until Bernadette Peters herself claims the rumors to be true or false, and that may never happen. Looking at the before and after photos can help the speculation though.
I don’t know why people think that plastic surgery ever makes one look younger. When you see Bernadette Peters on The Good Fight she definately looks 70 – but plastic – she can’t move half her face, it’s stuck and clearly unnatural. Judy Dench is older but can look much younger because she’s had no plastic surgery done. Plastic surgery/Botox – it’s fake and it looks fake
If she had any work done it was very minimal. I saw her recently on Live with Kelly and she looks pretty natural and still has emotion and expression in her face. People find it hard to believe that older women can still maintain a level of beauty. She has always had a little girls voice so maybe that helps her to age slowly?
I don’t know why it would be such a mystery as to why she looks so young at 69. I’ve seen her, she really does look very young for her actual age and still looks exactly like herself. I am 64 and I’ve seen the results of aging on many women over the years. All anyone has to do is listen to what she says. She stays out of the sun. That’s the main reason. She eats right and is a life long exerciser and dancer but it’s the protection from the damaging sun that has kept her skin youthful. I have a friend that has the same attitude that most young people still have. The sun tan makes you look better and younger. She has aged in the worst way! It is not natural to age from the sun and it’s not natural to get a tan. It’s the skin’s way of saying it’s been damaged. Bernadette is a smart woman. She stayed out of the sun since before people were trying to get the word out about how aging and damaging it is. Congrats to her and I thank her for teaching me the same thing. She was right!!
