Blake Lively Didn’t Need a Nose Job to Be Famous
Blake Lively is well know for being a star on “Gossip Girl.” In my world of facial plastic surgery, she is cited by my patients as being an example of good rhinoplasty. I often ask patients, “whose nose do you like?” I usually get the answer that they don’t want anyone else’s nose, but one that suits their face. They want a nose that minimizes their own prominent or exaggerated features, whether its a bulbous tip or prominent hump, but still looks like their nose.
This is where Blake Lively comes in. She was a successful actress before her rhinoplasty, and a beautiful woman. In fact, with my actor/model patients, like Natalie Pack, Miss California 2012, they are making a good living with the face they have. They just want to fix a few flaws or refine what they have, in order to get to the next level in their career. In Blake Lively’s case, she had a prominent tip that was wide and downwardly pointed, especially when smiling. She also had a matching wide nasal bridge. In her rhinoplasty, she had some tip cartilage removed, the tip defining points narrowed, and her tip rotated up. In addition, her bridge was slightly lowered and substantially narrowed. Her look was not substantially changed, however. Her tip is simply miniaturized and repositioned. It’s still her tip. Her bridge is simply transformed to match her new tip.
Plastic surgery chronicles: Has Blake Lively had a nose job?
There’s A LOT of plastic surgery going on in Hollywood these days, and while some of it is flagrant and noticeable, a great deal of it is really good work. (If celebs can’t find the right doctors, what hope is there for anyone else?)
One of the most obvious good nose jobs out there is Blake Lively, a bright young starlet who had a noticeably larger nose in her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants era.
The above pic is a side-by-side comparison of Blake back in 2005, and Blake October 2012. There is definitely a difference there, but her nose frankly looked great before.
