More from NY Post:
A representative for Bafitis Plastic Surgery did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
Thomas was married to singer Williams, 72, for over 30 years. After meeting in 1985 at one of Williams’ shows in Washington state, the pair tied the knot in 1990.
The pair raised two children — daughter Katie Williams-Dunning and son Samuel Williams.
Williams-Dunning died in 2020 in a car accident in Tennessee. Her husband, Tyler Dunning, was in the vehicle and survived with critical injuries.
