Dolly Parton – ‘Enhanced’ By Cosmetic Surgery?
Celebrity gossip magazines frequently speculate about Dolly Parton’s plastic surgery procedures and her enormous bosom. The truth is there is no need for any speculation as Dolly herself has admitted that she’s gone under the knife on countless occasions.
She has always had a curvaceous figure but her bust size has been dramatically enhanced. Dolly has been open about her breast augmentation surgeries saying, “People always ask me if they’re mine. Yes, they are…all bought and paid for.”
It is rumored that she has had multiple breast augmentation surgeries, to increase and decrease her bust size, and several breast lifts.
Dolly Parton may have had multiple facial plastic surgery procedures. In 2003, she told Oprah that, “If I have one more facelift, I’ll have a beard.”
It is speculated that her facial surgeries have been extensive: a brow lift, chin implant, rhinoplasty, upper and lower blepharoplasties (eyelid lifts), facial fat grafting, Botox, chemical peels, and lip fillers.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a well known Los Angeles plastic surgeon told website MakeMeHeal.com that, “Dolly Parton looks as though she had a great deal of facial work done.”
Fans are hoping that Dolly learns a lesson from her friend Michael Jackson’s plastic surgeries and doesn’t dramatically alter her appearance.
In the new film, Joyful Noise, out Friday, Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah play rival gospel singers in a small town in Georgia (watch trailer below). The movie is getting mixed reviews, with many critics zeroing in on a pivotal issue: Parton's noticeable plastic surgery. What's all the commotion about?
It impedes her acting abilities: As unwilling as I am to criticize an actor's appearance, "Parton's starched visage leaves her unable to achieve the most basic duty of an actor: expression," says Elizabeth Weitzman at the New York Daily News. Worse, the film itself makes her face an issue: Plenty of its jokes mock her plastic surgery, and they are "regrettably" catty. Thankfully, "Latifah is able to carry the movie with a characteristic blend of grace and sensibility," but the talented actress deserves better than this movie.
"Joyful Noise too loud, slapstick to do justice to its stars, Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton"
And the facial tweaks are unrealistic for Parton's character: Not only are the plastic surgery jokes "too cruel," says Roger Ebert at his blog, it's unlikely Parton's character would be so fake-looking. She plays G.G., a widowed waitress in a "poverty-stricken" southern town. How could such a character afford all those alterations?
But at least she has a sense of humor about it: "I'll admit that seeing her with so much plastic surgery done is a bit hard to watch, especially on the big screen," says Scott Chitwood at Comingsoon.net. "But I give credit to Parton she laughs at herself." Much of the poorly written film doesn't work, but at least the jokes at Parton and her plastic surgery's expense help to break the tension and assure the audience she doesn't take herself too seriously.
And she's still Dolly: Her must recent plastic surgeries are unfortunate — "it's as if Parton did her last work in a drive-through... in a hurry," says Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune. Still, it's impossible to resist her charms. "Her vocals hold up, and that 4-foot-11-inch frame remains like no other human's, whatever the component parts."
