Katie Price may think she looks glamorous, but the British model formerly known as Jordan is best known for her over done plastic surgery, rather than any natural beauty. Now it seems that Katie is forcing her plastic surgery obsession on to her new husband, Mixed Martial Arts fighter Alex Reid.
34-year old Alex Reid is known for his controversial style in the ring, but his recent personal life is also stirring up controversy, from his dressing in drag as his alter-ego Roxanne to his recent marriage in a Las Vegas ceremony to the newly divorced Katie Price.
Katie Price is no stranger to plastic surgery, undergoing numerous breast implant and removal procedures and flying to Los Angeles from Britain for Botox injections (See Make Me Heal’s story on Katie Price’s plastic surgery). Now it seems that Katie isn’t satisfied with her own plastic surgery alterations, and wants her new husband to have some work himself.
Given Alex’s occupation, his ears and nose have taken on an unusual appearance, which Katie wants corrected, and some Botox injections as well.
Board certified New York dermatologist Dr Judith Hellman says, “Katie Price and poor poor Alex Reid doesn’t sound like a good story from the start. The guy is a fighter, for Pete’s sake… of course he will look like one! If his looks don’t please Katie now, it bodes not well for the future. What happened to “I love you just the way you are”, as Billy Joel sang? If Alex wants to play along and go for the nips and tucks, sure, he could get a nose job and fix his ears. However, if he continues in his line of work, the results will not last long, will they? So I think before plastic surgery, they should figure out if the marriage will survive her wishes for him to be something he is apparently not, in her view, right now! I personally like Alex looking the macho fighter man, with all his marks to show for it. This most certainly doesn’t apply tough to his picture in drag–I don’t know what to make of that. A psychiatrist perhaps would serve him better than a plastic surgeon right now.”
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Reports of Katie Price “forcing” her husband Alex Reid to have plastic surgery are disturbing. Plastic surgery is a personal decision and should only be made by the person undergoing the procedure.”
Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif. says, “Whether or not Alex Reid wants to have surgery should be his choice. Sometimes a spouse may be an influence, but it is ultimately an individual decision. If Alex went through any surgical procedures to change his nose and ears, it would be necessary for him to avoid fighting, as everything will need a certain time to heal. This is especially the case for the nose. Even after being healed, if Alex is going to be involved in a contact sport with direct contact to the face, his nose is at very high risk for contact. It is inevitable the nose will be subjected to force at some point. In this case, any work performed may be altered. ”
While Katie’s desire to have Alex go under the knife may not seem like a good idea, it is not uncommon for women to want their husbands to look their best, especially if they have been under the knife or needle themselves.
Plastic surgeon Dr Carmen Kavali says, “I have had several women bring in the husbands for Botox, fillers, or liposuction. The women themselves are usually established plastic surgery clients who just want their men to keep up with them.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “
OcBody plastic surgeon Dr John Di Saia says, “No one needs cosmetic surgery. It is not common for a spouse to force the issue …at least not in my practice.”
Katie and Alex don’t seem likely to be a long-lasting relationship, but they do make for great entertainment for as long as they do last.
