Domesticity queen Martha Stewart is coming clean about her multiple cosmetic procedures — including Botox, facial fillers and skin-tightening treatments — admitting that she doesn’t “want to look her age at all.”
In a new episode of her eponymous iHeartMedia podcast, the 82-year-old shared her insights on aging as her dermatologist, Dr. Dan Belkin, joined in on the discussion.
“Everybody is so interested when they see a selfie of me posted on the internet,” Stewart said. “So many comments are about my facelift and who did it and when did I have it done and how much retouching is on the photograph, and I just want to set the record straight.”
Calling his celebrity client “a real testament to the idea” of working hard to look beautiful at any age, Belkin revealed that he’s placed “a little Botox” on Stewart’s upper face, admitting it didn’t achieve the desired results.
“I’ve tried to give you a little lift,” he said. “It hasn’t really worked that well on the upper face, but I think neuromodulators like Botox have worked really well for you on the lower face.”
The doctor also shared he uses facial fillers “very conservatively” on Stewart, and has performed skin-tightening procedures as well.
In the episode, titled “Finding Your Best Face,” Stewart said: “I don’t think a lot about age, but I don’t want to look my age at all. And that’s why I really work hard at it.”
When it comes to prioritizing her beauty, the 2023 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model takes after her late mother, Martha Kostyra, who died in 2007 at the age of 93.
“I think going to a really good dermatologist can help you feel better,” Stewart shared. “I remember when my mom, at 85 years old, went to a plastic surgeon, and she said, ‘I want a facelift because I just want to look good.’ And he said, ‘Well, you’re going to look good. You’re not going to look younger, but you’re going to look good.’ And she said, ‘That’s enough for me.”
