    Kathy Griffin: Why I Quit Getting Plastic Surgery
    Wednesday July 30, 2008

    At 47, Kathy Griffin swears she will never go under the knife again.

    "Iíve been off the junk, as I call it, for five years," she says in the September issue of Fitness (out August 14). "Iíve had face lift, eye job and all that stuff five years ago.

    "What I found, though, was that it didnít help me one bit," Griffin says. "It didnít get me happier or didnít make me look particularly younger."

    The Emmy-nominated comedienne says she always thought she needed surgery to land work.

    "I really thought ageism is so prevalent in Hollywood, especially in standup ó itís such a male dominated zone," she says. "I thought, 'Dammit, I got to do everything I can to look my best.'"

    She says she later learned aging "is not really going to keep you from what you want.

    "For example, if you work in an office, youíre probably going to do the same job if youíre 10 pounds heavier or lighter," Griffin goes on. "Iím not talking about anorexia or obesity ó those are obviously two different animals.

    "But I spent 20 years of my life obsessing about 10, 15 pounds, and what I found as a comedian ... is that nobody expected me to come out in a bikini anyway," she says. "Iíve never lost a job because of my weight, and Iíve certainly never gotten a job because of my cosmetic surgery or my weight."

    She says she has come to accept her body over the years.

    ďIíll say to my younger friends, 'Címon, I have a hot body, right?' I mean, not a hot body Hollywood-style... but itís hot for 47.

    "So thatís my new thing ó I like my body now," Griffin adds. "For 47, itís pretty darn good.

    She adds, "I've come to terms with the fact that I'm never going to be Jennifer Aniston."

    I love Kathy and she's right - she has a great figure for any age.

    Yeah, she needed to stop getting surgery. She must have realized she's never gonna be pretty.

    I adore this woman, and wouldn't care what the shit she did to herself!

    BUT, I will say that I like that she admits that PS isn't all its cracked up to be and that hey, it's not all that.

    Love Kath! Surgery or not!!!

    I actually don't like her eye surgery or whatever it was that gave her face that weird drag queen look.

    I love her, she is hilarious and great at what she does, but I don't think she needed most of that surgery.

    She does have a great figure, good for her for recognizing that.

    I liked her hair before she had it straightened. I think she looked much better facially before too

    Totally.

    I used to not like her, but I caught some of The D List and she made me laugh and laugh and laugh.

    ^ Ravenna, please. You do the first one in your 30s ("mid-30s face lift") and in your 40s, you do the second.

    I think she's great too. I love that she doesn't look like everyone else. Although, I am glad to hear her say she's done w/the surgery. Too much more and she would be venturing some super scary territory.

    She also messed up vision in one eye with lasik surgery, I remember reading what she said about that; and almost died during liposuction

    I'm glad she stopped all that

    ^I saw that about lasik, I feel bad for her... at least she is raising awareness
    about the risks of undergoing the procedure... unfortunately, there is no
