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 can totally relate to Alexa. I had a nose very similiar to her prior nose and was really self conscious about it. I got surgery last May and feel more confident and better than before! Alexa is gorgeous!

She is very pretty in her own/dad’s way, she doesn’t have to look like her mom to be beautiful, those eyes are georgeous, great nose job

Are people on here looking at the same picture I am?? Alexa Ray is BEAUTIFUL! She has a wonderfully unique and striking look to her. And she is talented to boot.

AWWWW I wish she hadnt done that, I thought she was beautiful and unique the way she was.

I agree…Alexa looks like her dad. But, I don’t think it’s fair to say she isn’t very pretty. She is still in the middle of her external metamorphosis. In about 5-10 yrs., her features will mature & I believe she’ll be absolutely gorgeous. To the person who felt her eyes were too far apart, I think it might be the way she has styled her hair. She needs not to put so much emphasis on her high forehead (I have one too), and maybe some side or middle bangs might do the trick. What I’m most happy about is that she’s finally back in a good place again, & is happy.

She looks beautiful. She has her mothers facial bone structure and big georgeous brown-hazel eyes.

I think she’s far more exotic than her mother, more interesting looking and she exudes a very sweet spirit.

I think she’s very pretty..her big brown eyes are beautiful!

Yea, Cindy, I’m sure you’re gorgeous, skinny and in a place to call ANYONE out on their looks.
