There are many reasons why people choose to have a nose job whether it’s insecurity, health problems or because their nose has been damaged during an accident. Sometimes people have very subtle nose augmentation and can disguise the fact they have had surgery by changing their hair or wearing lots of make-up so that people don’t immediately notice the difference. For celebrities however, who are scrutinized in the media for their appearances, it’s not so easy to hide the fact they have had a nose job.
The media loves speculating about whether celebs have had their noses done, normally based on photographs taken from different angles when their faces would look different anyway. Recently Olympic medalist Rebecca Adlington has been reported to have had a nose job. The swimmer famously dislikes her nose and was trolled on the internet by Twitter users who said she had the nose “like a dolphin” and like a “shark fin.”
It’s sad to think that such a successful woman could be judged on her looks and not by her incredible accomplishments, even sadder to think that she is not happy despite doing so well in her career. In the photo to the right you can see on the left how her nose now appears to be slimmer, but Rebecca has yet to confirm or deny the rumors.
Sometimes people hate their nose so much that do not want to be reminded of it after they have it altered. There is nothing wrong with wanting to change your physical appearance and it is up to the person who has the surgery as to whether they want to share what they have had done. This will be difficult for celebrities who will always be reminded in the press of what their nose used to look like and the fact that everybody knows they have had a nose job.
