The Real Housewives franchise seems to be an ongoing PSA for plastic surgery—it seems like nothing is off limits. And now, another housewife is coming clean, saying she, too, went under the knife to look younger—just two weeks ago. Tamra Judge, 49, recently opened up to Bravo TV host Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, saying it was her 10-year anniversary of the show and she wanted a "little refresh," so she had her eyes, neck and lower face done. "I call it a comeback. I don't call it a face[lift]," she said. "It's a mini."

Due to an overwhelming amount of comments on her social media feeds, The Real Housewives of Orange County star posted this picture yesterday, with a candid caption explaining her decision to undergo surgery and her recovery process. As she writes, this is her reason for speaking out: "I'm open and honest about it because I want women to know that everyone gets old even people on TV and there is nothing wrong with growing old gracefully if that's what you want...... It's jut not for me! I like to keep it real!" 

I'm getting an overwhelming amount of messages about my surgury. I thought I'd post some of your answers here. My doctors name is Dr. Milind Ambe of Newport Beach , @milindambemd you've probably seen him on the show before. These pics were taking all within the first week. Yes I was scared shitless! But I've seen Dr. Ambe's work on my Mom and knew I was in good hands. I wanted a very natural look and it's exactly what he's known for. There was little pain and bruising involved (everyone is different) the hardest part for me was staying still for 2 weeks. On day 12 I got the stomach flu which sucked! Today it's been 17 days and I feel great, my neck is still stiff and my ears and jawline are slightly swollen and numb. That will all change in a few weeks. Incision are behind my ear and hairline, under my chin. If you have any personal questions send me an email contactTamra@yahoo.com. I'm open and honest about it because I want women to know that everyone gets old even people on TV and there is nothing wrong with growing old gracefully if that's what you want...... It's jut not for me! 😂. I like to keep it real! #lowerfacelift #eyetuck. #callitacomeback 😂

To fix her skin that had become "droopy" as she lost weight during her intense bodybuilding regimen, Judge told Cohen she'd rather tighten her face with surgery than use fillers to plump it. “I’m not a big fan of the fillers because I feel like you look like a Cabbage Patch Kid, so I say pull it, don’t plump it!” 

The results, after just two weeks, are impressive. Judge's new look, seen below, received more than 70,000 likes on Instagram and rave reviews from fans saying things like, "You look great!" and "You're so gorgeous!"

OMG😱

    I admire her honesty and she looks fabulous!! Also love her shorter hair which makes her look even younger. That's because I think women 50 yrs and up who have Barbie doll hairdos look ridiculous - it's a bad fad that should die already.

    I think it's sad to put so much emphasis on your looks, but that's how it is in Hollywood.
