Need a little more work? Joan Rivers was seen undergoing plastic surgery on the first episode of the second season of her reality TV show

She is not shy about speaking about her surgery and now Joan Rivers has shown fans what happens when she goes under the knife.

In the first episode of the second series of her reality TV show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best which aired in the US last, night the Fashion Police host underwent surgery to ‘tune-up’ on her neck.

Joan,78, underwent the surgery despite concerns raised by her daughter and her family.

Waking up: Despite her family's worries Joan underwent the surgery anyway

As the mother daughter pair waited to speak to a surgeon Melissa told her mother: ‘I don’t want you to die’.

Melissa even staged a ‘skintervention’ where she tried to convince her mother to decide against the procedure.

Joan defiantly told her family: ‘My body is a temple, and my temple needs redecorating.’

A little nip a little tuck: Joan was seen in the make-up chair at the start of the show scrutinizing her face

Before the surgery she joked that she isn’t going for ‘a Chaz Bono’ just a touch up.

Also in the show the star, who has undergone numerous cosmetic procedures said it would be her 734th surgery.

But it was clear that Melissa’s concern did hit home with her mother who was anxious ahead of going under the knife again.

Melissa is seen caring for her mother and tells the camera: ‘Cover at age two was easier to handle than my mother after an operation.’

Ahead of her season two premiere Joan caused controversy for taking a swipe at Chelsea Handler.

It all started on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show on Monday when Chelsea was asked about her reaction to Joan’s recent criticism of her.

She responded: 'What the f**k do I care about Joan Rivers?''

The E! late night host then went on to recount an incident at a recent Comcast party where Joan made a speech and took some digs at Chelsea for acquiring a new stage, which was formerly Conan O'Brien's stage.

The next day, Joan Rivers and daughter Melissa had their turn on Howard’s show and discussed their thoughts on Chelsea.

Without any of her trademark verve, Joan spat: 'The girl made it on her back f**king the president [of E!].'

The Fashion Police star, who shares a network with Handler, then went on to describe Chelsea as a 'drunk' and a 'whore.'

Handler did pen a best-seller called Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea.
