Real Housewives of Orange County star Braunwyn Windham-Burke made a thirsty splash last season as a freshman housewife. Seven children. Claims of occasional swinging with her statement necklace wearing hubby Sean Burke. Making out with Tamra Judge. And having an odd mother, Dr. Deb, whom Braunwyn revealed she was taking a break from at the reunion. Although Braunwyn was not always understandable or relatable, she was often memorable.
Braunwyn tried to fit in with the other OC ladies, but struggled to bond with some of her co-stars. Vicki Gunvalson found her behavior scandalous. Braunwyn even annoyed annoying Gina Kirschenheiter. Recently, Braunwyn revealed she will have a special something in common with many of her co-stars if she returns for a second season. Braunwyn has joined the exclusive OC Housewife Plastic Surgery Club.
Bravo’s The Daily Dish reports that Braunwyn shared details of a recent cosmetic tweaking on her Instagram Stories. I am not sure, but Braunwyn could hold the all-time Housewife record for the youngest cast member facelift.
Braunwyn shared, “Good morning, hopefully, I don’t scare you.” She posted a few pictures of herself, in the typically gruesome facelift bandages and gauze.

According to Braunwyn’s Instagram Stories, she underwent two non-surgical procedures–FaceTite and Morpheus 8. I must not be up on the latest in cosmetic enhancements as I have not heard of either procedure. Someday, I envision drive-through plastic surgery in the OC–a little spackling during your lunch hour just before an important business meeting or a special first date.
So why a facelift? Braunwyn explained, “I didn’t want to change how I look, I actually like my face, but I did want to restore some fullness I’ve lost over the years (having babies takes its toll!).”
Newly refreshed Braunwyn is in good company amongst her co-stars, as Tamra, Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd have all been open about their cosmetic surgery adventures. If Braunwyn was on better terms with Vicki, she could have consulted the OC expert on facial refurbishments.
Braunwyn offered up additional details on the work she had done. She stated, “What I did do also on top of that was I had fat taken from my knee and put underneath my eyes. That was mainly because it doesn’t matter how much I sleep or how much concealer I use anymore, I have really thin skin there and its always blue. And even when I’m well-rested people are like ‘Oh, are you OK? You look sick.’ I decided to do that because — why not? I’m there.”
Hey, as long as you’re there, you might as well take advantage of it! “Why not,” indeed. I am sure there are many arguments for “why not,” but if plastic surgery makes Braunwyn feel better, that is 100% her business–to share on Instagram.
Unlike some cosmetic procedures, Braunwyn’s less invasive work has meant a shorter recovery time. She shared, “The only pain that I’m having today is where they had to take the fat off my knees. I’m kind of a tiny person so that’s a little bit sore.”

Beauty is pain, some say. The adage seems to hold particularly true in Orange County. I would tell Braunwyn to keep her chin up during her recovery, but it looks like that has already been taken care of.
