Smells like plastic surgery spirit? The widow of Kurt Cobain and former HOLE rock-n-roller Courtney Love reportedly underwent a rhinoplasty to fix a previous nose job and lip surgery during a pre Christmas trip to a top surgeon in France who specializes in fixing botched cosmetic surgeries (Love is pictured here with her new look). Love had this third rhinoplasty to fix her previous two nose jobs that left her with an unsatisfying look. A fan of blown-up collagen lips for years, 42-year old Love has also opted to ditch the collagen lips and deflate them to round out her new look. A friend of Love tells US Weekly that “She’s happy to have her mouth back”.
The real shocker in this story is not the actual procedures done by Courtney Love, but that she is now unrecognizable from her older days. Gone is the roughed out, punky and cool rocker girl. On one hand Love looks pretty cute, but on the other hand some of her unique features are gone. The jury’s out on whether the new Love is an improved version or if she is now just another Hollywood wannabe pretty lady cut out of the same homogenous plastic mold. Kurt Cobain must be rolling in his grave.
The surgery reports were confirmed after Love arrived on Thursday (January 4, 2007) at the premiere of Hilary Swank’s new movie “Freedom Writers” with a swollen, healing face, accompanied by old boyfriend Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins.
When asked if she had more cosmetic surgery in France, Love said, “I’m not going to comment on that tonight. I just think me looking human is cool.”
In any ironic twist, Love made 53 new year’s resolutions for 2007 on her website, among which was that she’d be giving up plastic surgery. The contradictory Courtney Love vowed, “No more surgery for any reason other than medical until I really need it in my 60s.”
