New year, new face! During this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, fans may notice that star Margaret Josephs looks a bit different from years prior. So, what exactly did the Housewives star have done, if anything?
Over the summer, Josephs announced that she had gotten both a facelift and a breast augmentation. Josephs first revealed her new chest in August, as she posed for a photo with her surgeon on Instagram. “The Man behind The Marges New Melons,” Josephs wrote in the caption of the photo. “No implants. Just a reduction and a lift!! And they are JUICY melons !”
And, in June, Josephs underwent a second facelift. “I had this facelift revision after [Season 10] for reunion,” Josephs explained in a June Instagram story, which was captured by Bravo. Josephs’ plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Karolak, also posted a series of before-and-after photos of the star’s face on his Instagram page, which detailed exactly what she had done. Karolak explained that in addition to a facelift, he also gave the star a lower eyelid lift and a revisionary neck lift.
