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’s a beautiful girl.

She is a pretty girl, and she does look just like her father. If she wanted a nose job, who are we to judge. To each his own, as long as there is a health balance.

She’s BEAUTIFUL! So many women are bland & non-descript. Alexa is uniquely beautiful & bright. I bet she does better than any of the generic beauties because she will develop herself inside & out, not relying only on her looks. Good for her for doing a little tweak if it makes her happy. More power to her.

Cindy shut up. I’m sure you don’t look all that great

Alexa, you look absolutely beautiful and I am glad you found yourself. Well done on turning over and new leaf and making yourself the priority. You should be very proud.

She was more beautiful before. Her nose made her sexy, now she’s plain

I think she looks beautiful. And I’m sure it’s hard to have a super-model Mom and a Billy Joel (not so super-model-y) Dad. I think women with big brown eyes are the best!

Christy Brinkley’s only claim to fame is beauty that she was born with…the only thing that woman knows how to do perfectly is to flash her dazzling smile and do a bad job in choosing husbands. Leave Alexa alone..doesn’t she have enough to deal with by all the public comments made about her looks, her mother’s failed marriages and a father, who although musically talented and successful, chases after women younger than his daughter??
