The rumor whether or not he underwent any surgery can be marked with two significant ways. There is no denying the fact that he took surgeries because of his physical ailment which he did not really love to endure. On 7th December, 1986, Barry took an emergency oral surgery with a view to removing a non-cancerous cyst embedded underneath his upper jaw. This time, he stayed at the Hospital of the Good Samaritan, LA Los for three days. The surgeon who treated Manilow’s friend Elizabeth Taylor was the doctor who performed the operation on his upper jaw. After around ten years, Manilow had undergone a photorefractive keratectomy, an ocular surgery, on one of his eyes. On 26th June, 2000, People Weekly reported that Barry took an eye surgery that was performed by a doctor from Los Angeles named Robert K. Maloney. However, the surgery was incorrectly stated as LASIK. Compare his before and after photos.
