Celebrities aren’t perfect, despite all of the efforts to make them look better than any of us mere mortals can hope to. While many celebrities are naturally beautiful, there is also a lot of work that goes into making them look flawless on stage and on the red carpet. While some of the rich and famous pretend that all they do is one hundred percent natural, others are more open about their insecurities and what they have done to improve what they weren’t happy with, which often includes plastic surgery.
Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job”, is one of the more common procedures the stars turn to, and it’s no wonder—nasal surgery can not only improve nasal aesthetics, but overall balance. Musician Iggy Azalea has become one of the most recent celebrities to admit to a little nasal adjustment. So what was her experience?
Iggy Azalea’s Nasal Surgery
It took her a few months to admit, but Australian-born musician Iggy Azalea has owned up to the fact that she did, indeed, get a nose job. Speculation ran high in May at the BBMAs, but only in her new interview with Seventeen magazine did the star confirm the rumors. In her own words: “I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame. … I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself”.
The changes to her nose seem to be fairly subtle, with most of the work focused on the nasal tip, but as rhinoplasty often does, the new look does affect her facial balance as a whole.
Celebrity Attitudes Toward Plastic Surgery
Celebrity outlooks on plastic surgery are quite varied, and while some still choose to deny their cosmetic changes as much as possible, others are upfront and honest. In some cases, alterations are unmistakable, but other plastic surgery is extremely subtle. Trends seem to indicate that more celebrities are being open about their surgeries lately, probably a wise move as the internet continues to pick apart any little change in appearance, sparking a constant stream of rumors.
Lifting the Stigmas
While plastic surgery has become much less stigmatized over the years, especially as more celebrities admit to cosmetic enhancements, there is still often shame involved when people undergo cosmetic surgery. Iggy Azalea has something to say about that too:
“Plastic surgery is an emotional journey … It’s no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself—and it’s no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it’s a tough journey. There are things that I didn’t like about myself that I changed through surgery. There are other things I dislike but I’ve learned to accept.”
The bottom line is that plastic surgery is an extremely personal experience, and no one should be shamed for wanting to make changes to their appearance. Hopefully as time goes on, the stigma of plastic surgery will continue to fade even further.
The Power of Rhinoplasty
A great rhinoplasty can do much more than just make some cosmetic changes to the nose. When done for the right reasons, It can also improve a person’s quality of life significantly, whether physically or psychologically. With functional rhinoplasty, the benefits are obvious—better breathing. However, cosmetic rhinoplasty has intangible benefits that are just as important. Many people find that their confidence and self-esteem improves greatly, which can, in turn, improve their outlook and interactions with others.
The Right Surgeon Makes a World of Difference
For many people, what separates a positive rhinoplasty experience from a disappointing one is the plastic surgeon performing the surgery. An expert, board certified rhinoplasty specialist makes a world of difference and will be the major factor in the success of any rhinoplasty procedure. This is why it is so important for patients to do careful research and never skimp when it comes to their choice of surgeon.
Good rhinoplasty involves a blend of skill, knowledge, artistry, foresight, and experience, a list of credentials that many surgeons can’t meet. This is why it is so important to choose a specialist, like Dr. Shervin Naderi, of The Naderi Center, in Herndon, VA (703-481-0002) and Chevy Chase, MD (301-222-2020).
