It seems ages ago that we saw Courtney Thorne-Smith on Two and a Half Man. Her last TV appearance was as a guest on Anna Faris' Mom. And there's a collection of what many of the guest stars think about plastic surgery on their website.
Thorne-Smith's last major TV role has been Two and a Half Men. But she's known more for starring as 'Alison Parker' on Melrose Place, as 'Georgia Thomas' on Ally McBeal, and 'Cheryl' in According to Jim. And you'll wonder how she keeps up her complexion in all these years.
Courtney isn't the first one to admit of cosmetic changes to her face. And she is quite open about it. She's admitted to using Botox since a decade ago back in 2011. "It's never been a secret in my personal life – I've just never been asked by the press," Thorne-Smith told People since being the new celebrity face of Botox in October 2011. "I've used it, I like it, it works well for me. That's just the simple truth."
Yeah, she's frozen in time since her mid-thirties.

It started since about a decade before her confession, when the lines on her forehead were a little bothersome for her. She is 52 now. "I found I've been able to use it and have full expression and look really normal," she continued. "I found the frown line was distracting me – I was conscious of it. Now I'm not."
Wait, isn't Botox plastic surgery? Well, there might be some technicality in those words. It has been stamped in the minds of viewers that Botox is plastic surgery. But it's the farthest form of plastic surgery there is, a non-invasive procedure, or rather an aesthetic service. It's not categorized the same as liposuction, breast augmentation, or any other surgical procedures.

For Courtney Thorne-Smith, she hopes she would not have to go further with any plastic surgery (the minimally-evasive or the more evasive one) operation on her face. It's unclear if she's done it yet. But if she's ever done it, there may have been reports already.
"My hope is that if I take good care of my skin and use Botox, I won't have to use anything else," Thorne-Smith adds in the same interview. "Never say never. I always want to look like myself – that's key for me. I don't want to look like a different person, I don't want my face frozen."
She wouldn't have to use other plastic surgery, and it's worked pretty well for her too.

Of course, she avoided Botox when she was pregnant with her 12-year-old son Jacob Emerson Fishman and when he was still a toddler. Of course, there are the diet and fitness habits she's adopted in order to stay fit.
