Dolly Parton may appear younger than her age due to several factors including beauty regimens, cosmetic surgery and genetics. The singer has also said that she believes her sense of humor and happy demeanor affect her physical appearance in a positive way.
Parton uses cosmetic products like moisturizers and makeup, and also wears wigs for public appearances. She has said publicly that she has undergone cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation and facial filler injections. Dolly's plastic surgeon has stated that Parton is "genetically gifted" and has naturally youthful skin. The natural elasticity, smoothness and moisture content of her skin likely contributes greatly to her young appearance.
