The daughter of Billy Joel and Christine Brinkley unveiled her decision to have a nose job over a year ago. Since then, she has continued to fight off rumors of more plastic surgery, but now it seems that she may have gone undergone more plastic surgery.
Alexa Ray Joel may be the offspring of some of the biggest names in The Biz, but that doesn’t make her perfect. So the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley turned to plastic surgery to help her fit into the spotlight a little better, undergoing a nose job back in 2010. Alexa had a nose job to help give her nose a more narrow shape and get rid of the somewhat bulbous tip. The result is well-done and helps her look more like the daughter of one of the world’s most beautiful women.
Alexa admitted to People magazine that she did indeed have a nose job, even though it had only been months since her drug overdose.
“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.”
After her nose surgery, rumors then began to swirl that Alexa had undergone a breast augmentation, rumors that mom Christie vehemently denied, saying that they were hurtful to the family.
Now, Alexa has debuted another new look, during her first sold-out performance at Cafe Carlyle. Appearing super sexy and nearly unrecognizable, rumors immediately began to fly that Alexa had once again been under the knife.
However Alexa quickly quelled the rumors by posting a photo of her new look along with a caption denying anything more than her nose job a few years back.
“On a personal (and slightly ridiculous note): I would just like to add that all of the continuously-circulating rumors that I have had extensive ‘face-work’ and undergone breast-augmentation surgery is simply and entirely 100% false,” Joel wrote with the photo of her from last night on Instagram.”
“The only thing I have ever had done is my nose, which I have always been completely candid, honest, and open about- and I can swear on my Beloved Gypsy-Stella The Cat that this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God! (But hey, there could be worse rumors circulating, so, I’ll take it). Any visibly-positive alterations in terms of my public-image are an absolute and sole credit to my brilliant makeup-artist and stylist, @darlingcait … Who is a true beauty-wizard and visionary.”
“(That, combined with the fact that I actually have a hearty dose of self-confidence now- which took me a little extra minute or so to find.) ; ) But hey, wouldn’t it be nice if the press could just focus on my music and stage-presence? Because, honestly, I would rather be judged, critiqued, and picked apart for my actual work. So, on that note… Please join me for an intimate evening of music, martinis, [and more!] at the Cafe Carlyle- get your tickets now- the shows are almost all sold-out!!!!!!”none
