It's no secret that Kyle Richards has had plastic surgery, but now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star is opening up about why she underwent the knife.

"The surgery made me feel better!" she gushes about her improved self-esteem to Life and Style.

Richards had her nose reshaped in 2006—before surgery, it made her feel "self-conscious"—and got liposuction following childbirth. "After having four kids, no matter what exercise I did, the love handles wouldn't go away."

The Housewife, who has also maintained a bikini body with a dieting regimen, points out that she's not turned into a living Barbie doll. "See, look, I can move my eyebrows," she jokes. "This is a trick in Beverly Hills!"
