RHOC star Tamra Judge recently revealed that she had a lower facelift to celebrate her 10-year reunion of being on the show. Now, Judge is speaking out about the procedure because she reveals she has gotten so many questions about it.
Tamra took to Instagram to open up about her new look. “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 just not for me! I like to keep it real!” she wrote, along with an email for fans who wanted to ask her questions.
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 😂
Tamra also spoke with Bravo about why she decided to have the procedure. “It’s just something I had been thinking about for so long,” she said. “I’m turning 50, I had reduced [my body fat] and ever since then I felt like, every time I smiled or make a face, you could just really see it in my lower face and my neck. And I just hated it.”
Judge admitted she was still hesitant to get the surgery, even after booking the appointment. “It was a couple days before surgery, and I was like, ‘Am I doing the right thing? I’m totally scared,’” she said. “And then me and Shannon had done a Facebook Live and her daughter had taken a picture of us doing it. I was in mid-sentence, and I’m like, ‘Ohh I need it. I totally need it.’ I just went through with it.”
Tamra and her husband Eddie gave her doctor a hard deadline when she booked her facelift. Dr. Ambe is also opening up about Tamra’s procedure. “Eddie said this to me, ‘She is going to be on national TV in literally two weeks and a day after this surgery. We have to make sure that she looks ok,” he says. “And I promised him that that was going to happen.”
Tamra agrees that the healing process was quick. “The next morning, I went into Dr. Ambe’s office, he took the drains out and the bandages off. I was just shocked because I expected to be this black and blue swollen unrecognizable [person] and I didn’t look that way.”
What do you think of Tamra’s new look?
