Bethenny Frankel candidly talked about all the plastic surgery procedures she has had done in a video posted to her social media on Sunday.
The Real Housewives Of New York City star revealed she has gotten filler once, had a breast lift 15 years ago, and previously got Botox in her jaw that drastically changed her appearance.
The reality star, 52, said she wants to be honest in today’s social media climate that often lacks transparency ethics surrounding the topic of plastic surgery.

Speaking to fans, Frankel said, ‘I owe it to you to be totally transparent with you.
‘In today’s world of filters and Facetune — and people being outright dishonest about how they look — it’s so important to me that I remain transparent about my physical appearance, especially now that I’m in this beauty space,’ the Skinnygirls Cocktails founder said .
‘I don’t have to tell you every aspect of my sex life, bank account, or any of that, but I feel a responsibility based on the fact that we’ve been talking about skin and beauty,’ she said.
In 2006, Frankel attended a movie premiere. Later, she got Botox to relax the muscles in her jaw from ella and almost three decades later, she still looked stunning after her first procedure from ella.
‘And it would just be fraudulent for me to just go do something and then act like this was natural,’ the star added.
In the clip, she revealed that recently she’s been on a ‘plastic surgery consultation tour.’
For her future plastic surgery plans, the entrepreneur explained that she wants to get work done sooner rather than later in order to maintain her appearance and still look like herself.

‘I’m thinking very seriously about plastic surgery and I want to share with you all the reasons why,’ said the mogul.
‘I like the way I look. I’m OK. I don’t even think I really need it. The only reason I would contemplate this is because I will eventually do this, I believe.’
She added: ‘I want to look like myself. I just want a little help along the way.’

The Just B with Bethenny Frankel podcast host acknowledged the controversy surrounding plastic surgery procedures.
She said an A-list celebrity friend of hers told her: ‘You’re late. Everyone your age has done something and everyone is lying about it.’
She said she realizes that some of her followers may disagree with her opinion.
Earlier in September, the podcast host posted a picture of herself before and after using a filter on Instagram. The star is known for posting without filters and makeup.
‘Many of you will judge me, and that’s OK, as long as I’m being honest with you. You can disagree with my decision,’ she added.
However, the star — who frequently posts unfiltered and makeup-less videos discussing skincare and beauty — asserted that because she now works in a beauty space, she wants to be honest with her fans.
‘But you will not judge me for lying because I won’t lie to you because we’ve discussed so many things with beauty and age, and that would be a full fraudulent scam.’

Since she left Real Housewives Of New York in 2019, the reality personality has been posting honest skincare and beauty reviews on social media.
Recently, the star has been in the headlines since the announcement of her ReWives podcast where she recaps and discusses Housewives episodes.
‘I’m going back to housewives…..on my terms…and I’m going to MENTION IT ALL!,’ she wrote on Instagram earlier this month.
Last Wednesday, talk show host Andy Cohen, 54, talked to Page Six about his reaction to Frankel’s podcast.
‘I was surprised at that because she’s been trashing the show for the last three years,’ he said in a video. ‘I see her quotes about her, especially when they are negative about the show. So that’s why I was surprised.’
