Dolores Catania is so happy with the results of the facelift she got a few years ago, she's telling everyone about it. It's something she could've easily kept secret: "No one ever believes that I had a facelift when I tell them because I still look like me," The Real Housewives of New Jersey beauty wrote yesterday on Instagram.
Instead she's singing the praise of her plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Karolak, DO, FAOCO, and sharing photos from before and after her facelift.
"A lot of people ask me 'Why don't you always wear makeup? You're not worried about wearing makeup.' I have to tell you it's because a few years ago I got a facelift," Dolores said in a video with Dr. Karolak, who she also turns to for Botox and filler. "It gives me a lot more confidence to go out without makeup. I just feel better. My jawline is back, my jowls are gone."
Swipe to see the results of Dolores' facelift, necklift, and eyelid surgery, all completed without general anesthesia. She jumped into the comments and answered some questions including how long it took her to recover ("it was like nothing 3 weeks") and whether she got a nose job ("No, I didn't"). When commenters questioned whether the before photos were of Dolores, she wrote back: "Swear to god it's me."
Years after her procedure, Dolores is still loyal to her facial plastic surgeon. "I am obsessed and would never trust anyone else," she wrote. "Through the years he’s helped me look and feel my best. I love going to see him because he treats me like family and he knows my face."
