Has Drea de Matteo had Plastic Surgery?
The actress may already be in her mid 40s, but apparently she looks younger than that. Known for her roles both on TV and movies, de Matteo has managed to maintain her youthful glow all these years. She has also remained svelte throughout the course of her career. Aging is not something that’ll stop her from being incredibly fabulous. Or did she have any help? Plastic surgery, perhaps? It’s no secret that plastic surgery is so common in Hollywood. Both actors and actresses resort to surgical procedures to enhance their looks or appear younger.
There are non-surgical options, too, that can make the facial skin smoother with less wrinkles and fine lines, but the results are also short-lived. That’s why others choose to go under the knife for a more long-lasting effects. Could the Shades of Blue actress be one of those who succumbed to cosmetic procedures? Although there are claims about the actress maybe getting plastic surgery, nothing is valid up to this point because none of these reports ever last. With this, it is fair to assume that the actress is still plastic surgery-free.
