Has Andrea Navedo had Plastic Surgery?
Already in her 40s, the actress is remarkably radiant and youthful. That’s why it’s no wonder if some speculate that she may be receiving cosmetic treatments to help alleviate the signs of aging. There have been talks of Botox, though the actress has never talked about anything plastic surgery-related. It’s suffice to say that while the Jane the Virgin star has never had major procedures done, she may not be unfamiliar with the minor ones, including Botox, fillers, and laser treatments. Nonetheless, she’s expressed many times in interviews how she’s conscious of her diet and how she practices an active lifestyle to stay fit.
