Alexis Bellino of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County talked about her procedures and brought her mom Penny in for some work on last night's episode. Alexis' mom came to visit and Alexis took her to Cosmeticare in Newport Beach, the office of Dr. Michael Niccole, to have a forehead lift, along with a little more.
Alexis also spoke about her breast augmentation and her history with injectables. She has had Botox for her forehead lines, and Restylane for her lips. In the opening credits for the show, Alexis quips, "Of course I'm high maintenance, look at me." She has caught a lot of flack this season as some people don't see how her Christian beliefs line up with her lifestyle.
Alexis' mom decided to take years off her face with a browlift and injections of Juvederm, a long lasting facial filler to diminish the appearance of her wrinkles. The doctor also suggested that she come back about 6 months after the surgery to have a laser treatment to even out her skin tone. Following her procedure, Penny went to a recovery center where Alexis stayed with her to help her heal.
Other Housewives have undergone cosmetic procedures while on the show. Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey had a Botox and Fillers party, and cast mate Teresa Guidice had breast implant surgery on the show. On the Atlanta season, Kim Zolciak had Velashape done while Ramona Singer from New York had fillers done.
Alexis Bellino is now offering health and beauty consultations at Cosmeticare. We saw the above ad on their website today. We hope her experiences in the professional cosmetic surgery and beauty industry are more rewarding than how Bravo shows Gretchen Rossi's to be.
