Lisa Kudrow’s “Life Altering” Nose Job!

Lisa Kudrow’s “Life Altering” Nose Job!

May 8, 2014

Jennifer Aniston isn’t the only Friends star to have a rhinoplasty.  The always quirky and hilarious Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe on the show, had a nose job long before she became a household name.

Kudrow opened up about going under the knife at 16 years-old.  She admitted that before the nose job,  she had trouble making friends in high school.  The now 50 year-old actress has no regrets about getting plastic surgery at such a young age.  For her, the decision “was life altering.”   After her surgery, the drastic change in her appearance helped Kudrow gain confidence. She explained to The Saturday Evening Post how different her life was before the procedure.  “I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.

Doctor Nose Best

According to statistics there are about 60,000 – 70,000 nose jobs performed in the United States, each year and the numbers continue to climb.   A small change from a rhinoplasty can make a huge difference.  Dr. Louis P. Bucky, a board certified plastic surgeon from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, explains why he finds the procedure so unique. “It’s a different kind of operation than others because we do a lot of etching and shaping, unlike other surgeries where there is a lot of sewing and restoring.” Even working on one little part of the nose, like Kudrow’s bridge for example, can make a great impact on the tip.  “This is a surgical procedure that is so enjoyable and interesting,” says Dr. Bucky.  Since the nose is part of the face, there is a lot of pressure added for doctors, which is why this operation is of such high importance.  Know your doctor and be sure to seek out a trusted, board certified plastic surgeon before undergoing such a significant procedure.

A rhinoplasty like the one Lisa Kudrow received not only changed her personal life, but also allowed her to have many successes in career.  The slight difference from a nose job can be the transformation of a lifetime.
