D’Andra Simmons is a reality TV star, entrepreneur, director, and actress. She rose to fame following her appearance in the Bravo TV reality series “The Real Housewives of Dallas.”
Born and raised in Dallas, Simmons entered the show in its second season and quickly became a fan favorite.
Her relationship with her photojournalist husband, Jeremy, and her often overbearing mother, Dee, was her story arc on the show.
Similarly, she is also known for shows such as Dallas Fresh with Guest D’Andra Simmons and I Don’t Give a Rip. She is the owner of the skincare line Hard Night Good Morning which she founded in 2008.
As the title suggests, we are here to discuss D’Andra Simmons’ past plastic surgery. She has never been shy about discussing her procedures.
Similarly, she also discussed how, post-plastic surgery, she gained weight, felt “like a monster,” and was left “depressed.”
D’Andra Simmons Reveals Having A FaceLift
The Real Housewives of Dallas star has always been open about her past surgeries. In her 2019 interview with The Lookbook, the 53-year-old revealed she had a facelift in early January 2019.
A facelift is a procedure that involves pulling back the facial muscles in order to reconstruct them to the patient’s liking, most commonly in order to de-age.
The average cost of a facelift is estimated to be between $7,400 and $8,000 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Talking about her facelift procedure, Simmons stated:
“I’m all about telling people what I do, OK. I had a facelift. I wanted to have my hair blonde because I didn’t want people to notice my face because it takes a while to, you know, look like yourself again. So I thought, well, if they notice the hair, they’re not going to notice the face. So that’s really why I did it.”
She continued saying that she always wanted to have a facelift since her mother also had one and felt like it was the right age.
“I had always been planning it because of course my mother has had a few, and you need to do it before you need to do it, basically, so it’s not so noticeable. So she had her first facelift, I think she was 47. So, 50, I’m in the right age group and age time.”
The reality star also mentioned that since she sells skincare (Hard Night, Good Morning) for a living, it was important for her to tell her fans about the reality of human skin and how it can be saved or changed.
“My neck was bothering me. I sell skincare for a living and what I’ll tell people is that no matter what skincare you use or laser or tightening, there’s nothing that’s going to fix gravity. That’s just the way it is. So, if you want to have that youthful fresh look, you’re going to have to get a facelift. You’re going to have to have surgery.”
Reveals Having Weight Issues And Suffered From Depression Post Facelift Procedure
D’Andra Simmons got candid in her interview with The Feast, where she talked about her battle with depression and how she gained 25 pounds following her facelift.
She said, “Nobody tells you that you get depressed. My husband took me out to California where I had [the facelift] done, and then he had to leave three days later to go to National Geographic”.
“And so I was there, stuck in a beach house for a month by myself, and it got depressing”.
The actress/director Simmons then turned to food for comfort, including daily visits to a nearby donut shop, resulting in weight gain.
‘Well, my favorite donut place in the world is in Costa Mesa, California, and it’s called Sidecar. So of course I was going there daily to Sidecar Donuts and having my cake donuts and I gained 25 pounds before the season started.’
It is always important to care for one’s mental health, and it is refreshing and inspiring to see a celebrity being vulnerable and sharing her insecurities with the world.
What Other Procedures Had D’Andra Simmons Had?
D’Andra Simmons, in her interview with The Domenick Nati Show, revealed having had plastic surgery over the years.
“I support people that have plastic surgery and myself have had plastic surgery. I had my nose done in 2005, and had a br**st reduction and lift and all that kind of stuff and then I’ve had some other stuff done.”
She admitted having the following procedures:
Br**st Augmentation And Reduction
Br**st augmentation or enhancement is a procedure that involves the use of implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the previously mentioned body part. It can last 20 years or more.
As per 2020 statistics, the average cost for the surgery is between $6,000 and $12,000, including the surgeon’s fee of $4,866.
Reduction is the exact opposite: the extra fat is reduced from one’s br**st to make it smaller. It can cost $3,000 on average.
It’s rumored that the television personality has Botox or facial fillers.
A Botox injection is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They also help to treat neck spasms, an overactive bladder, and excessive sweating.
The procedure generally lasts 3 to 4 months and costs $300 per injection on average in the United States.
Rhinoplasty or Nose Job
It is a surgical improvement in the nose’s appearance. Sometimes, it is also performed for the treatment of difficulty breathing.
An average rhinoplasty costs $5,483 in the United States.
Dermal filler is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that plumps up wrinkles, smooths lines, and restores lost volume in one’s face. It rejuvenates the skin and reverses signs of aging.
It costs between $600 and $1,000 per syringe. The amount of filler is dependent on the treatment area.
D’Andra Simmons Reveals Her Beauty Secret
Despite having many procedures to make her skin smooth, flawless, and wrinkle-free, D’Andra Simmons stated that she takes skincare very seriously and takes meticulous care of it.
She stated in an interview:
I’ve used my products, Hard Night Good Morning, aloevera-based skincare products for 20 years… And so that’s the difference. My skin was in really great condition so I had good results. I mean, I feel like I had good results. I don’t look pulled, I don’t look that different, but people kind of have to figure out if it’s the hair or the face.”
Similarly, the reality star joined Dr. Ho to share her BBL HERO and Halo Skin Treatments in an interview with Dr. Ho on “Good Morning Texas.”
