Country music icon Dolly Parton, known for her legendary career and vibrant personality, recently shared candid insights into her views on aging and plastic surgery during an episode of “The Howard Stern Show.”
Acknowledging her fondness for plastic surgery
Parton, 77, emphasized the importance of a cautious approach when considering such procedures. Responding to Stern’s compliment about her appearance, she shared advice she often gives to those seeking similar results.
“If I was going to do something to myself, I would go to your doctors,” Stern praised Parton. “Do people call you all the time and say, ‘Dolly, how do you do it?’”
“Oh yeah, and I always say, ‘Just find the best doctors,'” Parton replied. “Some of my celebrity friends, I give them the names of the doctors that I’ve used.”
While openly discussing her experiences with plastic surgery, Parton stressed the potential risks involved. “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,” she cautioned.
“You just never know how you’re going to heal,” she continued. “You never know what’s going to go. So you absolutely need to find the best doctors, the most talked-about doctors, or the ones highly recommended if you’re going to do anything (to) your face.”

Parton emphasized her preference for subtle enhancements
Particularly gravitating towards fillers like Botox and Juvéderm.”Only when I have to do something,” she specified. “And even then, I try to be careful.”
The country legend pointed out that plastic surgery, while offering cosmetic changes, can also impact one’s expressions and even alter personality. “It changes your expressions. It can change your personality,” she noted.
Expressing her nerves before any procedure, Parton acknowledged the inherent risks. “It’s always a risk, and anytime I go in for anything, I think, ‘Oh lord, please let this all work out fine,'” she shared.
Parton’s openness about her approach to aging and cosmetic procedures reflects her pragmatic view on maintaining appearances in the demanding world of show business. In 2012, she previously spoke about her use of plastic surgery, highlighting her commitment to modest adjustments to stay camera-ready.
