Tamra Judge candidly revealed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday that she had only just gotten a procedure done to her face. "I call it a comeback. I don't call it a face[lift]," she said during the appearance. "It's a mini." Since she revealed the news, she's been getting lots of responses from fans -- and now The Real Housewives of Orange County mom is sharing more details about the procedure.
"I'm getting an overwhelming amount of messages about my surgery. 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," she said on Instagram, alongside a photo of her right after the surgery. "These pics were taking all within the first week. Yes I was scared s***less! But I've seen Dr. Ambe's work on my Mom and knew I was in good hands."
Tamra then explained what results she was looking for by going under the knife. "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," she said, before recalling one hitch in her recovery.
"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," she said. "That will all change in a few weeks. Incision are behind my ear and hairline, under my chin. 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! #lowerfacelift #eyetuck. #callitacomeback."
