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

I think she’s gorgeous!

I think shes really cute. She has a very unique beauty and her eyes are gorgeous. You don’t need to be blonde and blue eyed (like her mother) in order to be considered beautiful.

I think she looks pretty in this photo! There is no need to be so mean! Sandra, I’m with you…

Alexa is a beautiful girl. She needs to keep a positive attitude and outlook on life and with love from Family and Friends, she will be OK!

I heard her sing on the Wendy Williams Show a few months ago and actually was not impressed at all. I thought she’d have a more soulful voice. She’s very talented but her singing voice isn’t what I thought it would be. I wish her the best of luck, no man is worth trying to end your own life.

I think she is very pretty.

I think she’s very pretty! She’s a girl people would look twice at because she has a interesting face. Her mom is the one who looks too Barbie doll/common. Not that she isn’t pretty either.

And yes, Cindy how many beauty pageants have you won?

I’d bet she looks even prettier without all the makeup. She has beautiful features and flawless skin.
