Jay Manuel is a makeup artist/photographer and best known as the director of photo shoots on “America’s Next Top Model.” Mister J looks like he has been following in the model’s footsteps and has undergone some plastic surgery of his own.
38-year old Jay Manuel rose to fame as the personal makeup artist of legendary supermodels Tyra Banks and Iman. Like Tyra, Jay Manuel seems to have undergone a rhinoplasty on his way to fame. A nose job that he doesn’t discuss, even though plastic surgery tends to be a frequent topic in the modeling world.
Although Tyra Banks is suspected of having a nose job, she has never openly revealed it, or denied it (See Make Me Heal’s story on Tyra Banks’ rhinoplasty). Luckily, Tyra’s nose is natural-looking and does not look the result of a nose job. On the other hand, Jay’s seems very artificially constructed in that the bridge is just too perfect, which is probably the result of an implant being used. While nothing is wrong with Jay’s nose, and it certainly fits his face, it is possible to get more natural-looking results from a rhinoplasty.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., says, “It is apparent that Jay Manuel had rhinoplasty performed at some point. His results appear slightly artificial, as his nasal bridge appears a bit too perfect and at a first glance it is clear he has had the rhinoplasty surgery. The surgery was not too overdone, but it is possible for a more natural result to be achieved.”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Jay Manuel definitely reshaped his nose with a Rhinolasty. His nose is much more narrow and straighter. It has a very defined shape and matches the rest of his very defined look and style.”
Jay has come a long way from being just a makeup artist to the stars, as he now has television shows of his own, thanks to plastic surgery.
