The royal wedding between Prince William and commoner Kate Middleton is just over a month way, and more than just the royal are making plans for the big day. With the recent announcement of who is on the guest list, socialite and recovered drug addict Tara Palmer-Tomkinson is said to be planning her plastic surgery before the big day.
39-year-old socialite Tara Palmer-Tomkinson is amongst the 600 guests invited to the royal wedding. But before the big day, the former cokehead says that she wants a nose job.
The model and friend of Prince Charles once had a severe drug habit that cost her her nasal septum. She has since had a rhinoplasty procedure to build up the wall separating the nostrils, but would like another nose job to help straighten it out. Currently, her nose seems to lean distinctly to the right.
“If I can get my nose fixed for the wedding that would be ideal,” she said. “I’m not sure it’s going to be possible but hopefully something can be done in time.”
“I’m so paranoid about it. All I can think about is I just can’t wait to have it done. It’s something I’ve always wanted to have done but it needs a recovery time.”
“My surgeon died so I still need to find someone to do it. It’s a straight nose but it’s just got a bump in it. I’m nearly 40 years old now and I want to get it right. ”
“I am not saying I’m an oil painting but of course I want to have it fixed. I don’t want to be picked on. I read somewhere last week someone said they want to vomit when they saw me and it made me so unhappy.”
Tara admits that her deformed nose is her own fault for not following her doctor’s aftercare instruction after her surgery.
“I took the cast off too early and my surgeon was furious. You have to maintain your surgery.”
“One filler injection makes it completely straight but you’re supposed to have the injection every three months though and I regret that I didn’t.”
“[Now] my nose doesn’t look like it did. There is no explanation for it. There has got to be more to life than a nose. There is a nice girl underneath it.”
If Tara acts quickly, she may be able to attend the royal wedding with a new nose and no bandages, but with some residual swelling.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California says, “Tara Palmer Tomkinson would have time to have a rhinoplasty performed before attending the April 29th wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton if she wished. She would still be swollen at the time of the event, and this is especially the case if tip work is performed. However, the majority of the swelling will have gone down, and her nose would still show great improvement if the surgery is performed by a highly skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. An examination would be necessary to determine what would be performed during surgery, as each patient has their own individual circumstances. ”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It is very difficult to fix and reconstruct a nose that has been damaged by drug use. Drug use can destroy and eat away the cartilage inside the nose that acts like scaffolding forming the nose’s shape. Tara Palmer Tomkinson will need to rebuild her nose from the inside out using her own cartilage, possibly from behind her ear, or using a synthetic form of cartilage to give her nose the internal support it needs to hold its shape. The healing time associated with a complex procedure like this is typically a few weeks should everything go well. It is possible thought that she may need more than one procedure to correct her collapsed nose.”
