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

After reading some of these comments, I’m disgusted. She IS a beautiful girl and I’m sure she’s quite tired of her looks being compared to her mothers looks. What if a picture of you was posted on here and you get these sorts of comments? How would you feel about that? What if this picture was of your daughter, grand-daughter or other loved one? Think about how what you’re saying is effecting others before you post it.

… she’s absolutely stunning & in my opinion surpasses her mother’s beauty by light years … an exotic beauty, not a wee pointy nose Barbie like her mother … softer features, sexy & voluptuous … unique & exquisite! Stay beutiful miss Joel & know that you are exactly that BEAUTIFUL!

I have always thought she was pretty. I am sure she will feel better about her nose, because it did always attract your eye.I don’t think it was necessary, but if it makes her feel better, she made the right decision.

She is so gorgeous. I think that it is GREAT getting a nose job. If it makes her feel better and makes her even more gorgeous then go for it. If I had the money there are alot more than a nose job I’d change on my face.
