Take a look at someone’s face. What’s the first thing you notice? The nose is the central feature of the face and often the first thing we notice. It’s no surprise, then, that rhinoplasty is the second most common plastic surgery procedure performed in the US.

A nose job can become necessary for health reasons, such as after several broken noses or for a severely deviated septum. Other times, people opt for a nose job to enhance their natural beauty. Here are ten celebrities who have undergone a rhinoplasty and what they have to say about their experience.

This model opened about her surgery because she feels that she has a responsibility to do so. She opted for surgery because her growing bones made her nose itchy. She also said that it’s unfair that women who are natural beauties judge women who decide to get plastic surgery.

In an interview with People magazine, she said, “ If you like your natural self, don’t worry about it. But if you feel insecure about something … I have a magic bag of beauty tricks to make you who you want to be. Permanent or temporary, I do not judge that.”

At first, she didn’t want to talk about her plastic surgery because she felt her fans would feel bad about their own bodies.  But she said that honesty is the best policy, and she always wants to be transparent with her fans. Here’s what she said about her rhinoplasty, “I am not denying it; denying it is lame.” She admitted that plastic surgery is an emotional journey, and it’s no easy feat to change yourself.

During a visit to the Ellen Degeneres Show, she stated, “There was nothing wrong with me. I think it’s a personal choice and anybody, man or woman, they should be able to make an informed decision, and if you want to change something, then that’s up to you.”

9. Ashley Tisdale
