Suzanne Somers Plastic Surgery: Has She Really Undergone Any Surgery?

A few years back in 2020, there was news about the then 73-year-old Suzanne Somers hurting herself seriously after falling down a flight of stairs. Her husband, 84-year-old Alan Hamel, was also involved in the terrible fall, trying to help her, but he was not hurt.

When she took the fall, Suzanne was already moving around with the help of a crutch since she had fractured her hip some days before her fall down the stairs. After this serious injury, she went to visit the doctor who upon examination and X-ray tests informed them that the impact of the fall had displaced two of Suzanne’s vertebrae. This is when she had to go for a major neck surgery to correct the placement of her vertebrae which were pushed off their position.
