46- year old Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has been compared to that of the Kennedy’s. But would the democratic candidate be quite so handsome without a nose job in his past? Make Me Heal looks at the rumors of plastic surgery in the Obama camp.
Early pictures of law student Barack Obama reveal a geeky kid with a big nose and hair to match. The nose in his early pictures is quite wide and very round. Fast forwarding several years to the current presidential campaign, and some insiders have claimed that Obama’s nose looks more refined at the tip, which may have been the result of a conservative rhinoplasty procedure.
A reader of Orange County based plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia’s blog, identified as Corey queries, “Since this is a plastic surgery forum. Have you seen Barack prior to his rhinoplasty? Check out the pictures of him while in law school. Very big nose. Wonder if he could have been president with the old nose? He wasn’t very attractive then.”
Dr. Di Saia responded, saying “It looks like the blogger might be right. The old Barack image features a more rounded nasal tip. His later images look consistent with a minimal tip rhinoplasty to me. It makes for a more “Caucasian” look. Maybe.”
On the other hand, plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif told Make Me Heal that he doesn’t think that Barack has even had the minor rhinoplasty.
So the jury’s out as to whether or not the odds-favorite candidate for the presidency is also a nose job candidate.
As for Barack’s wife Michelle Obama, there is also a rumor of a nose job. Michelle’s nose looks the same to Make Me Heal throughout the years, implying that the nose job rumor is false. However, Michelle’s face is very smooth and wrinkle-free, despite what must be a very stressful life on the road, leading us to believe that the 44-year old may use Botox to relax facial muscles and prevent her face from wrinkling. If she does use Botox, it is a job well-done, because she doesn’t have the overly tight and unnatural appearance of some users, like Nicole Kidman (See Make Me Heal’s story on Nicole Kidman’s plastic surgery).
On the other side of the debate is John McCain’s wife Cindy and her notoriously pulled-looking face, which Make Me Heal previously reported to be the product of laser treatments, a potential lower facelift, and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). See Make Me Heal’s story on Cindy McCain’s plastic surgery).
The Hollywood elite tend to be notorious Obama followers, so he and Michelle aren’t the only ones campaigning for the presidency with rumors of plastic surgery. Kim Kardashian is a notorious Obama supporter, wearing a T-shirt that states, “Obama is my homeboy (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kim Kardashian’s plastic surgery).
It seems that politics and plastic surgery go together hand in hand, no matter what your race or political party affiliation.
