For Kate Gosselin, getting ready for the March 22 debut of Dancing With the Stars entailed far more than perfecting her fancy footwork. In Touch can reveal that the former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 may have secretly undergone multiple plastic surgery procedures with a top Beverly Hills surgeon in order to look her best for her return to prime time. “Kate thinks Dancing With the Stars will put her on Hollywood’s A-list,” says an insider. “She feels she needs to look her best, so she gave herself a major makeover.” According to the insider, Kate had a ton of work done, including Botox injections, Restylane fillers and laser resurfacing, which can cost about $12,000, says Dr. Brian Bonanni, medical director of Gotham Skincare. In addition, Kate seems to now have veneers, hair extensions and highlights, eyelash extensions and eyebrow shaping, as well as regular spray tans and professional makeup applications. Kate, 35, felt she had neglected her appearance while tending to her eight children and going through a divorce with Jon over the past year. “She went from hating the way she looked to loving her new appearance,” says the insider.
