Loretta Lynn is thought by cosmetic surgery experts to have had several plastic surgery procedures including Botox, fillers, an upper and lower eyelid lift, and facelifts. The country musician has only revealed that she had breast implants when she warned women about the dangers of implants. Loretta Lynn has never talked about plastic surgery except then, even though many people talk about how she has gone overboard with it.
Loretta Lynn was the most-awarded female country recording artist and the only female ACM Artist of the Decade (1970s). She scored 24 No. 1 hit singles and 11 number-one albums. She released multiple gold albums in her country music career which spanned six decades. She is much renowned for her hits such as You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man), Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind), One’s on the Way, Fist City, and Coal Miner’s Daughter.
The country musician was also known for her charming personality and alluring looks. However, as time went on, she began to age out of her looks and youthful appearance. And she most likely didn’t handle growing old well and went too far with plastic surgery to maintain her looks. Now, whenever there is a question, ‘Did Loretta Lynn have plastic surgery’, most people say that she has gone overboard with it.
Did Loretta Lynn Have Plastic Surgery?
Loretta Lynn (@lorettalynnofficial) is believed to be obsessed with facelifts and many also think that she has had Botox and fillers to maintain her looks. Some plastic surgery experts claim that she has had an upper and lower eyelid lift as well. She herself had only admitted to having breast implants when she warned people against getting them.
Loretta Lynn is not just known for being a strong vocalist but she is also noted for her strong personality. People couldn’t help but be in awe of her and admire her. And You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man) hitmaker just had everyone’s attention whenever she walked into a room. But that could be because of her appearance as well. She, as PressReader has said, was a real honky-tonk tootsie back in the day.
Being blessed with alluring looks, for the Grammy winner, also meant people assuming her strong personality for her and thinking that she is vain about her appearance. If what people supposed about the Fist City crooner is true, well, her vanity really did not bode well for her aging as time passed because she looks like she tried everything to not age and that was not a good look on her. People used to talk about her music and her looks in the past but now all they talk is about her plastic surgery.
And how could they not when Loretta Lynn bought for herself a face that looks like she was frozen in time and as such, the speculations of plastic surgery were always going to be there? Some tabloids went too harsh on her for getting cosmetic surgery saying that her stiff face looked like a horror show from years of nip/tuck overload. And they even got an insider to spill, though I’m not sure about the credibility of the sources or that tabloids that conveniently got inside sources.
According to them, an insider said that Loretta Lynn had always held herself up with pride when it came to her looks and she had tried to fix that with several facelifts, Botox, fillers, and other plastic surgery procedures, that had caught up to her after so many years. They also told that there were very few visible lines on her face and when she smiled, her cheeks did not move. She could barely move her face so that was all too much.
The source also basically corroborated the assumptions about Loretta Lynn’s vanity and said that she was a bit vain and didn’t want to look in the mirror and see an old person staring back. They revealed that she piled on makeup and did her hair even when she was not leaving the house and noted that she just refused to grow old before her time. It must be because she refused to grow old and age out of her looks that she chose to have plastic surgery.
According to the sources of the tabloids, Loretta Lynn’s vanity was what pushed her to get plastic surgery. This claim might not totally be accurate as coming from the direct source Loretta, in her 1976 memoir Coal Miner’s daughter wrote,
I’m trying to make a living singing songs. I don’t need nobody out there saying, ‘She don’t look bad considering she’s such-and such years old.’
Now, if the inside sources are not reliable, their claims that she had plastic surgery like facelifts, Botox, and fillers might be untrue as well. But seeing that the memoir was written before or in 1976, this argument does not hold up. Besides, opinions were asked of cosmetic surgeons and they think that Loretta Lynn definitely had plastic surgery.
A Michigan-based plastic surgery expert Dr. Anthony Youn said that the country singer appeared to have had a number of cosmetic surgeries, changing her looks substantially. He told that there were signs of a facelift to tighten her jaw and neckline, an upper and lower eyelid lift, and fillers injected into her cheeks on Loretta Lynn’s face.
Loretta Lynn herself has never confirmed that she had all these plastic surgery procedures experts claim she had and her fans speculate that she got. Except for the time she warned women about breast implants revealing that she had them too. She had her 25-year-old implants removed because of leaking silicone that had attached to nerve endings, her rib cage, backbone, and tissue. She said that ‘it was a mess. It went all over’ and without surgery, she ‘would have died.’
