  • Photos of Jay-Z have revealed that his nose appears to be slightly slimmer than in the past, indicating that he may have followed in his wife, Beyonce Knowles’ dancing footsteps and had an ethnic rhinoplasty sometime during the past decade. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Beyonce Knowles’ plastic surgery).

    Past photos of Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter, reveal a very wide nose with a very bulbous, rounded tip. Newer photos of the recently turned 40-year old show that his nose appears to have been slightly narrowed and the round tip made less pronounced. While the difference could be the angle of the camera, it could also indicate a slight ethnic rhinoplasty.

    Jay Z, Plastic Surgery

    Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Based on pictures that are available, it appears that the ala, or nostrils, are less wide and the tip is refined. An alar base resection is usually what is performed to achieve a more narrow, less flared look of the nostrils.  The new nose gives a nicely balanced look to his face yet still retains his ethnicity.”

    Plastic surgeon Dr Sherrell J Aston says, “After reviewing Jay-Z’s recent photographs it does appear that he has had a Rhinoplasty. It is especially evident when looking at his tip and nostril size. His surgeon did a good job making his nose look proportionate to his other features.”

    Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and a rhinoplasty specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Jay-Z appears to have had rhinoplasty.  His nostrils appear less flared than they were. He may have had alar base reduction, which narrows the nostrils.  HIs surgeon did an excellent job, and his nose compliments his face very well.”

    Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Jay Z’s nose looks slight refined and narrower from the previous photo.  However, everyone’s nose changes with age, so it is hard to tell if he has had surgery or if it is just due to the camera angles.”

    If Jay-Z has had a nose job, he would join a long history of black performers who have gone under the knife.

    Make Me Heal wishes Jay-Z the best of luck with his most recent album The Blueprint 3 and looks forward to seeing what celebrity shenanigans he gets into with Beyonce.

      You doctored the second pic. I have the original on file and his nose looks just as the first. Try to report something worth while.

      IS THE BLOGGER/OWNER OF THIS SITE THAT STUPID OR IS HE JUST DESPERATE?

      JAY-Z’s PICTURE WITH THE SMALLER NOSE AND SHADES IS PHOTOSHOPPED.

      BEYONCE’S BEFORE PICTURES OF HER NOSE AND BODY ARE PHOTOSHOPPED.

      I HAVE THE ORIGINAL PICTURES IF YOU WANT THEM.

      ALSO, JAY GREW INTO HIS FEATURES THE SAME WAY BEYONCE’S SKIN IS THE CAUSE OF TAKING CARE OF IT.

      BLACK PEOPLE DON’T HAVE TO UNDERGO PLASTIC SURGERY, ESPECIALLY FOR SKIN BECAUSE GOOD BLACK DON’T CRACK BABY.

      Umm, Kaye? Get over yourself! Jay “grew into his nose”? Excuse me, but he is in his 30′s in BOTH pictures and your face doesn’t just morph into something else completely over night post puberty. Is he still growing? Lol. Black celebrities get plastic surgery all the time just like white stars do. Why are you so personally effected by this post? Do you think you’re a star too? Ha. Obviously he;s had “work” and it looks ridiculous. A different angle does not make your nose look 5 times smaller.

      What exactly is “ethnic” plastic surgery?!? I don’t know if he had surgery or not, but calling it “ethnic” when a person of color gets something done is just plain dumb. I didn’t realize that plastic surgery was based on the color of your skin or your ethnicity. Does that mean that there is somehow a different procedures based on where your ancestors are originally from? I think not. This website is dumb.
