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

Geez people, why don’t we just give her another reason to feel bad about herself. She is her own person with her own looks and she is gorgeous from the inside out! People making negative comments need to take the time to reflect on their own image in the mirror, inside and out!

I think she is beautiful. Everyone has beauty. Everyone. Poor you all, thinking everyone should have the same cookie cutter look. I reminds me of Sophia Loren. Beautiful.

She’s gorgeous, just in her own way. Her eyes are beautiful and different, she has a great smile, nice dimples. Yes, her mother is beautiful and her father may not be Brad Pitt but everyone is beautiful in their own way. I would bet she is a wonderful person inside and that is all that matters. Maybe we should all have to post our photos here & wait for the comments…..

Absolutely gorgeous! I love her eyes…they are like her dads, but they are beautiful on her!

Jackie O’s eyes were very far apart, too. So far apart she had to special order her glasses. And she was gorgeous, no?

She’s beautiful!! I don’t know what planet some of you people are living on but who cares who she looks more like…she is stunning!

Caroline on

She is very beautiful, she always was,
but if she feels prettier now after the rhinoplasti, that will boost her self confidence.
She is a very exotic beauty, so different from
her mother, Christi is more the all american beauty, blond with blue eyes, but Alexa is soooooo

Kristi on

She does look like her father but she has so many beautiful qualities like her mom. She needs more confidence thou. She is a beauty.

Exactly, Terry! What is the old saying, “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it at all!” I’d like to see pictures of the people with the negative comments. Anybody see the “Glee” episode last night? What a great message it had!

It’s so funny how people comment… on a website… about people’s looks. Her face is here for everybody to see… and she’s brave enough to SHOW her face to the public on a consistent basis and be honest about her surgery. People like Cindy hide behind a computer and make comments. Sad.
