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 thought she was pretty before the nose job.She is still an attractive girl,but I don’t think her new nose does anything to enhance her beauty….it’s very narrow.

Alexa has a beautiful smile like her Mom. Yes, she looks like her Dad too, but everyone has traits good and bad from both parents. It’s what’s inside that counts and I think Alexa is a sweet girl.

I’m glad she got the nose job. She still looks
like her pretty self with an improvement not like
Heidi Montag who looks 20 years older.

All you haters wish you were half as beautiful … Shame on you…you disgust me!

She is absolutely gorgeous; before and after. She doesn’t need to ‘compare’ to her mother, they are both beautiful in their own ways.

All she needs now is some tips from a makeup pro. She has a good face. I do find it funny that with a model for a mom, she looks like her dad. That’s ok, she’s Daddy’s only gorl.
