Dr. Dave E. David applauds her for her honesty regarding her cosmetic treatments and encourages other celebrities to do the same, as they credit the technology and hard work of the doctors who perform these treatments when they do so.

The article asserts that Ripa uses Botox to minimize sweat in her armpits and to improve the droopiness that develops in her eyelids. "Every seven months or so, my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes.

Dr. David asserts that, by sharing their experiences with cosmetic surgery, celebrities can help members of the general public who are interested in learning more about cosmetic treatments but are, as of yet, unsure if they want to undergo them.
