Jill Zarin has had plastic surgery, but the question is just what has she had done and what hasn’t she had done?
One of the fan favorites on “The Real Housewives of New York,” Zarin is known for her signature wit, fiery temper and her red bangs.
While she’s changed her hair style to reveal more of her forehead, there have been questions regarding her updated look. And most of those questions revolve around the premise of “what surgery did Zarin get to look like that?”
While rumors have included Botox and facial fillers, the opinions of the experts and the words of the star herself clash. Jill herself as been pretty honest about what she’s had done.
This new look bears the obvious question, “Has Jill Zarin had any shall we say upgrades?” Well as fans of the show know the 47-year-old isn’t one to hold back on expressing herself and she told Popeater’s Rob Shuter that she DID NOT have any work done.
“If I did, I would be the first to admit it,” says the reality star. “When I had by breast reduction I was very open about it.”
A plastic surgeon who was interviewed for Popeater’s write-up felt differently. Dr. Jennifer Walden stated that:
“It appears Jill Zarin has had injectables like Botox to her crow’s feet and forehead, as well as possible fillers to the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines,” says Dr. Walden. “Also, it looks like she has had a rhinoplasty (or nose job), which served to straighten and narrow her nose.”

Jill Zarin before and after botox & facial fillers? The real housewife has admitted, in a trend that we’ve seen with big stars like Susan Sarandon, that she has had surgery in the past. While accusations of awful plastic surgery might be flying now, Zarin was open and honest with her fans when she had a breast reduction.
Now though she is denying that her altered face is the result of plastic surgery.
Dr. Jennifer Walden, a Manhattan plastic surgeon who was not involved with Jill Zarin plastic surgery in any way, gave her opinion as a professional about the signs Zarin shows.
“It appears Jill Zarin plastic surgery has had injectables like Botox to her crow’s feet and forehead, as well as possible fillers to the nasolabial folds, or laugh lines.” Walden also went on to say that it looked as if Zarin had gotten a rhinoplasty, or a nose job, to narrow and sculpt her nose.

But Jill Zarin insists she had no plastic surgery on her face, and credits Restylane injections for her smoother complexion and clever makeup for her narrower-looking nose.
"I have a liquid facelift every six months," Jill Zarin, 47, told People. "It really works. No knives!

As for her new nose, Jill Zarin says it's not needles or knives, but rather the work of her new hair and makeup artist, Jim Crawford.
"He put brown contouring makeup on my nose and thinned it out," she says.
Crawford explains the makeup magic: "We also made her face look thinner by airbrushing the sides and hairline two shades darker," he says. "Before she was just using TV makeup, which didn't give any dimension."
Getting rid of bangs also changed up the Housewife's look. "With the bangs down, the nose takes up the largest percentage of her face," Crawford explains.
