Several wild speculations about whether Raver had had a rhinoplasty procedure have been circulated in the media. Many have argued that her present features look quite different from her old look. Rumors spread that she had a nose job done in order to remove a distinctive bump from her nose and to make it more beautiful and small. The actress looks gorgeous even at the age of 46.
But Raver has not spoken about it yet. In a recent interview with Ok! Magazine, she shared tips to remain beautiful and naturally healthy but she didn’t say a word about getting a surgery.
Anyway, it’s her body, so we should let her deal with it. With or without a surgery, she’ll always be beautiful to her beloved fans and we all hope that the mother of two will make a great comeback on television.
