Biggest Loser celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels is best known for her tough attitude, but she’s also been through some tough times as an overweight teen. The petite fitness guru recently confessed that in addition to weight loss, she’s also lost some of her large nose to a rhinoplasty.
36-year old Jillian Michaels is most often seen in the skimpiest of workout wear, showing off the rock hard body that she has successfully achieved. But Jillian wasn’t always her famously svelte self. She once struggled with obesity and poor self-image.
Jillian tells Parade Magazine, “In eighth grade, I weighed 175 pounds and my nose was the size of a softball. Once, I was sitting at lunch and got surrounded by a bunch of kids who let me have it about how ugly I was — my unibrow, the size of my nose, the fat rolling over my jeans. It was pure hell. My mom had to pull me out and put me in another school.”
In addition to changing her unhealthy lifestyle, Jillian also changed her appearance, by undergoing a nose job procedure to help her look and feel better.
“I had my nose done. I felt much better about myself. Plastic surgery is a very personal decision.”
Jillian’s new nose is narrowed and refined, but didn’t change the look of her face, the result of well-done rhinoplasty.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “When you loose a significant amount of weight and body fat it can even be seen in your face. Although Jillian Michael has lost a significant amount of body fat, her nose is clearly more defined and sculpted which is the result of a Rhinoplasty or nose job procedure.”
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Jillian Michaels appears to have had rhinoplasty performed. Her nose is currently smaller than it was in earlier photos. Overall, any work performed was conservative and she looks good.”
Makemeheal.com wonders what other plastic surgery Jillian Michaels may reveal in the future, especially as breast implants are very popular with female body builders.
