Melissa Gorga joined the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2011, in the show’s third season. She’s the estranged sister-in-law of OG, Teresa Giudice, and she quickly became a fan favorite.
Melissa’s role on the show grew, and she morphed from being the “underdog,” into a strong mom and wife who stood up for her family against the Giudice clan as the seasons progressed.
But you’re not going to believe how different she looks in the new season of the Bravo show. Look:
Melissa’s dramatic change in appearance has caused many to speculate that she’s had plastic surgery – again. Melissa who is believed to be no stranger to plastic surgery was previously accused of having four nose jobs by her co-star Jacqueline Laurita. In 2016, she confirmed she had gotten a nose job and opened up about her decision to go under the knife privately.
“Let’s be honest, it’s the worst-kept secret that I’ve had a nose job, but it’s my secret to tell, not hers,” she admitted. “Some people like to say, ‘Hey, I injected this, tummy tucked this,’ and that’s fine, too. It’s something that’s personal to me. It’s one of the very few things that is personal in my life at this point.”
Now a well known plastic surgeon is revealing to fans what he believes Melissa has done to her face.
Dr. Sarmela Sunder of Encino says, “It appears she may have had a chin augmentation and volume added to her cheeks.” She also adds, “She appears to have more youthful skin and contours, similar to the results of the Butterfly Lift. She appears to have invested in quality medical grade skin care treatments, and medical microneedling with PRP.” Dr. Sunder also concludes that she had her lips enhanced, using fillers like Juvaderm, Restylane, or Vollure.
