Brunette beauty Lauren Sánchez has caught the eye of billionaire Jeff Bezos, but plastic surgery experts say her striking appearance is not all natural.
Three of the country’s top plastic surgeons tell Page Six exclusively that they believe the 53-year-old media personality has likely had a nose job and a facelift.
“Facelift expert” Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich says a reason for an individual to go under the knife for a facelift would be to “prevent the sagging of the facial tissue and maintain youthful neck contour,” which he believes Sánchez has done.
Dr. Ramtin Kassir, a celebrity doctor who has worked with stars like Melissa Gorga and Lele Pons, adds that a clear sign Bezos’ girlfriend has gotten a facelift is her “attached earlobe,” which is more apparent in some of her newer photos than older ones.
“If you do a facelift and sew everything too tight, the earlobe becomes attached to the face and loses its curved contour,” the New York- and New Jersey-based surgeon says.
“She’s got some dimpling and shadows around her mouth,” he also points out. “These are tell-tale giveaways of things that have been done and skin that has been pulled.”
However, Kassir recognizes that Sánchez has a “nice jawline,” which was likely achieved due to a facelift, but notes that he doesn’t think she had a deep-plane facelift, which addresses the ligaments and the muscles “a lot better.”
Dr. Ehsan Ali, known as the “Beverly Hills Concierge Doctor,” agrees it’s “possible” the former “Good Day LA” co-host had a mini facelift as “her skin looks pulled back and tighter.”
He also thinks Sánchez likely had rhinoplasty since the “tip of her nose is much thinner than before.”
Ali, who has met the TV host in person and says she “looks good,” notes that it’s not “uncommon” for a woman in her 50s to “have cosmetic work done.”
Aside from surgical procedures, the experts we spoke to — who have not worked on Sánchez — also think the former “Extra” correspondent has done some cosmetic work, which offers semi-permanent results.
Pamela Weinberger, founding injector at Plump Cosmetics, says she believes Sánchez had lip filler and thinks it should be redone to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing look.
“She needs to have her lips dissolved and start over because when she smiles and animates, you can see some of the filler has migrated in the submucosal area of the lip, which can start to change the lip’s natural shapeliness and make it appear bumpy,” the cosmetics expert says.
Kassir agrees that Sánchez’s lips appear “a little too full” and speculates she may have gotten silicon as the middle part of her lip is higher and the sides are “weighed down.”
Dr. Azza Halim, a board-certified multi-specialist physician, also thinks the socialite had some form of lip enhancement and adds that she may have had some “aesthetic contouring with dermal fillers to have a more defined cheek and jawline along.”
While other doctors thought Sánchez likely went under the knife to achieve her thinner nose, Halim points out she could have also opted for a filler in that region.
Vasyukevich thinks the fullness in the former “The View” guest host’s cheeks is also due to injections, and Weinberger says she would prefer to “dissolve” that part of Sánchez’s face to “give her more of a natural look.”

All of the experts we spoke to agree that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, though.
Halim says Sánchez has “always been naturally beautiful,” and if she had surgical enhancement then it was “very nicely done.”
Weinberger agrees that the former TV anchor has “an absolutely striking look” but adds that she does “looks more overfilled than she did in past years.”
Kassir and Vasyukevich agree that most of the time patients prefer to have cosmetic or plastic surgery done that is more natural and less obvious.
“The very fact that we are discussing the ‘work’ here means that something caught our eye — something that made cosmetic interventions apparent to us,” Vasyukevich says.
“There are many people who would welcome this, and there are others that prefer to be more discrete. This is mostly a personal preference, and as long as one is happy with their appearance, the cosmetic surgery that led to it is successful.”
Kassir concludes, “It’s not bad work, but it’s not great work either because you want to make people look like themselves but just more refreshed.”
Sánchez has not confirmed what work she has had done, and if the mother of three has chosen to go under the knife, the procedures surely cost a pretty penny.
We’re told facelifts in the US range anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000, depending on the doctor who is performing the surgery. Rhinoplasties range from $15,000 to $30,000, and fillers cost anywhere from $300 to $600 every four to six months.
