One Nose Job Is Enough Plastic Surgery For Alexa Ray Joel

Alexa Ray Joel is turning over a new leaf. Hospitalized after taking Traumeel, a homeopathic medication, in December, Alexa Ray tells PEOPLE she’s feeling much better–inside and out. The 24-year-old singer underwent rhinoplasty earlier this month, and says she’s overjoyed by the results. “I was thinking about getting this for years,” says Joel. Her nose, she adds, “always bothered me a little bit. I was self-conscious of pictures taken from the side. To some people that’s vain, but at the end of the day, we all want to feel pretty.” But the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley says she’s done with plastic surgery. Says Joel, “Would I do anything else to my body? No. It’s not ten procedures like Heidi Montag. For me, that’s a little extreme, but to each her own.” As for the timing of the surgery–just four months after her overdose scare following a breakup–Joel says this was the right time for her. “Would it have been smart to get this procedure last year?” she asks. “No. I didn’t know who I was.” And now? “I feel really good.”–Rennie Dyball and Liza Hamm

she was beautiful before the nose job, and she’s beautiful after. people should stop comparing her to her mother. i actually think alexa is prettier than christie brinkley. christie is a cookie cutter pretty blond, while alexa has gorgeous, unique features.

Most women are so evil to eachother (Cindy!) She has a very beautiful face. Someday women will come together for eachother. No wait, that won’t ever happen. :) Just stay confident ladies, don’t let the Cindy’s out there try to get you down!

Alexa is a very pretty girl. Unfortunately when you have a mom that looks like Christie Brinkley, you are gonna hear negative comments. And yes, she does favor her dad in looks!

I think Alexa Ray is soooo pretty!!! I love her features. She is not a cookie cutter, she has her own look and what a relief. I don’t think she needed a nose job but I can understand the happiness it can give. To those who posted cruel comments I think they need to get in touch with their inner beauty(let’s hope they have it in them). All the best to you Alexa!!!

It never ceases to amaze me how hurtful and mean people can be. Look in the mirror yourself before you judge others.

I think she is lovely. Big eyes are always a plus and hers are beautiful. I suspect the few haters on here are no beauty queens….lol

She is Beautiful.

She is not very attractive, she looks too much like her father and he’s not that attractive either.

I think she is pretty. Beauty is not everything. Where did it get her mom? Yeah, a super modeling career,but what was it 4 failed marriages? She is what she is and should be proud of it. Her dad is not super good looking, but is very successful!

She’s a very pretty girl!
