Dolly Parton Is ‘Not a Natural Beauty’: See the Country Singer’s Plastic Surgery Transformation

Dolly Parton has never shied away from discussing what plastic surgery she’s had done, as well as giving advice to others on getting the best doctors possible.

“I don’t really think about it too much. If something is sagging, bagging, or dragging, I’ll tuck it, suck it or pluck it,” she revealed in a 2011 interview with The Guardian.

Dolly has confessed to getting a breast enhancement as well as upkeep such as a breast lift. She’s also been quite open about using Botox and other fillers such as Juvéderm.

“You’ve just got to be very careful not to overdo it because you never know. Anytime you go under the knife, you could come out looking not good,” Dolly told Howard Stern in November 2023.

After cementing her movie star status in such hits as 9 to 5 and Rhinestone, Dolly was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Tennessee native has always been known for her huge hair thanks to her large wig collection.

Dolly told Elle in 2019, “I don’t always wear [wigs] in my daily life, but I always still pouf up my hair.

“I still like to have that flashy hair. When I’m around home, I wear my little scrunchies, but I always put on some makeup and fix my own hair as cute as I can fix it.”

The glam queen added, “Wigs are just so handy. I’m so busy, and I have so many choices. I never have a bad hair day, and that’s a good thing.”

Dolly attended the second annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Three years earlier, she clarified what type of implants she didn’t have in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. ”I’ve been known for my boobs long before people started having the implants, and I have never had silicone injections,” she told the publication.

The “Jolene” singer added, “I have had some cosmetic surgery, especially after I lost weight and stuff, and I’ve had my breasts lifted, but not injected. That would scare me to death, anyway.”

Dolly revealed how much she spent on maintaining her famed chest and how she wanted it to be appreciated.

“I’ve slapped a few people who didn’t stare at them! This kind of money, they’d better be looking at them,” she told Q magazine, adding, “No, I’ve not insured my boobs. I just paid a million dollars for them, and I hope they look a million dollars, too!”

Dolly told Reuters why she felt the need to get plastic surgery.

“Because I am in show business. I am not a natural beauty. And I am on camera all the time,” she said. “I don’t go to extremes with it. I just do little bits and pieces, just to try and keep things touched up, just tweaking.”

“It is true that I look artificial, but I believe that I’m totally real,” Dolly said during an interview with CBS This Morning, adding, “My look is really based on a country girl’s idea of glam. I wasn’t naturally pretty, so I make the most of anything I’ve got.

The Grammy winner told Howard Stern about how she kept facial work to a minimum at the age of 77.

“You can cover up stuff if somebody screws up things on your body but, boy, if you live with your face out there, you’ve got to be careful,” Dolly cautioned, adding, “So, I try to do just little bits at a time. I don’t do really big stuff.” She said she turns to fillers like Botox and Juvéderm, “only when I have to do something,” noting, “And even then, I try to be careful.”
