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 has turned to plastic surgery to help her fit into the spotlight a little better.
24-year old Alexa seems to be taking a page from her model Christie Brinkley’s book by undergoing plastic surgery. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Christie Brinkley’s plastic surgery).
It seems that 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.
Miami Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Christy Brinkley’s and Billy Joel’s daughter Alexa definitely did refine the shape of her nose with a Rhinoplasty cosmetic procedure. The tip is more sculpted and narrow and the profile is more defined and sleek.”
Dr. Paul A. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Alexa Ray Joel appears to have had a rhinoplasty performed. Her nose is slightly narrower than it was, and a bit more defined as well. Overall, her surgeon did an excellent job as she looks great and her nose does not appear overdone.”
After much speculation, Alexa admitted to People magazine that she did indeed have a nose job, even though it has 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.” But the daughter of 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.”
Alexa seems to be in a good place and Makemeheal.com is happy to hear she is not yet another starlet going overboard on plastic surgery.
