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

Cindy- She’s telling the world she was self conscious, but now feels beautiful and THAT’S what you have to say? Shame on you!

Alexa Ray looks beautiful. She is a good combination of her Mother & Father.

She was pretty before and she’s pretty now, too. And she’s EXTREMELY talented!

I love her. Her music is great. And for those who love to comment on how you don’t think she’s very pretty?…please post a picture of you on here so we can massacre you! Look in the mirror please, before you start commenting. Life isn’t about how you look on the outside, but how good you are on the inside and what goes aroudn comes around. Remember that!

WOW – I think she looks really, really GREAT!!! Actually very natural and stunning in her own way.

I am disturbed by people who really think they are qualified to say someone looks pretty or not…Someone saying she looks like her dad and isn’t pretty, with her eyes too far apart…Simply amazes me as if they were an elected official for the “Who’s pretty and Who’s Not” Look in the mirror lately?

It is true…. Beauty comes from within. I cant believe someone on here would comment and outright say someone is “not pretty at all”. Who are they to say? When Alexa gets older and loves herself more than anything – including her looks, she’ll be better off. She’ll be comfortable in her own skin – so to speak. I’m sure she had a lot of pressure being the daughter of a “super model” – who is still beautiful (inside & out).

Alexa may not look like her mom but she inherited her dad’s amazing singing voice. She is a beautiful girl. It is very sad that people will always comment she didn’t inherit her mom’s looks. I say thank God for that. Where did mom’s looks get her? 4 failed marriages.

So nice to see everyone posting comments about looks!! No wonder these poor girls have complexes!!

Me on

Wow! Alexa is gorgeous. And Cindy….I’ve seen her….she’s a bow wow! So, shut up Cindy
