Tiegs On Going Under the Knife?
Numerous interviews with the famed model reveal that she is clearly not an advocate of celebrity plastic surgery.
In her interview with Oprah magazine, Tiegs stated, “To
have this spirit which is within, to nurture it, to pay attention to it,
rather than ignoring it, and buying a bunch of new clothes and getting
face lifts…That’s all exterior stuff, which is fun to do, but it’s not
going to make you beautiful without working on what’s going on inside.”
Along with other aging supermodels on the Oprah show, she denies ever having any cosmetic surgery.
As a non-seen judge on the reality show, True Beauty,

Medical Community On Cheryl Tiegs and Plastic Surgery?
While most concur she still looks great, plastic surgeons feel Cheryl
Tiegs has played the card of celebrity plastic surgery to help turn
back the clock.
Whatever she may have had done, there is at least no debate about any plastic surgery gone wrong.
Paul Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Beverly Hills, feels the supermodel has had cosmetic surgery.
He states, “Cheryl Tiegs appears to have had a facelift, possibly
fillers and Botox, and there is also a possibility she had rhinoplasty
at one point in her life. She also may have had filler, such as
Restylane, injected in her lips. She still looks good, but should avoid
any additional work.”
