There’s something different about Alexis Bellino. Is it her new nose perhaps?
The Real Housewives of Orange County star is finally admitting to a nose job – her first facial plastic surgery, or so she claims! Speaking to the Orange County Register, Alexis explains it’s nothing drastic, but people are wondering if something about her face has changed!
“Most people don’t even know I had a nose job,” she said of the new schnoz she purchased in mid-October, “They notice something [new] about me. It’s perked up my face.”
Alexis reveals it was not only vanity that led her to alter the face God gave her; it was a medical procedure! According to Alexis she got the surgery to help with the debilitating sinus infections she has suffered from for years. And while she was at it, she decided to change the way her nose looked. Apparently there was a bump resulting from when she broke her nose at age six.
Alexis’ employer Dr. Michael Niccole, a board certified otolaryngologist and plastic surgeon, who has also done Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sheree Whitfield’s breast implants and some of Alexis’ other enhancements, performed the surgery. “She asked me if I could make the tip a little more defined and also file down her bump.”
Sadly, Alexis says she experienced a difficult recovery which took “weeks longer” because it was more than just a cosmetic procedure and she is still slightly swollen. But she loves her new nose! And so does Dr. Niccole! “Wait ’til you see her nose. It’s just perfect,” he enthused. “I don’t want to brag, she’s a pretty girl, I didn’t have Jimmy durante’s nose [to work with]. But wait ’til you see her. It’s really gorgeous.”
Who else loves her new sniffer? Husband, Jim-Blob Bellino! “Oh, he loves it,” Dr Niccole assured. “Thank God. I prayed for about a week on that one.”
For those of you wondering how changing her nose coincides with Alexis’ strict Christian beliefs – there’s no conflicts. WWJD? According to Alexis, He would get a nose job if it made him happy! “I believe it is okay for me to have a procedure done on my body because it boosts my confidence and I believe that God wants me to be happy,” Alexis recently stated in a blog defending her plastic surgery and wardrobe choices. Well, whatever makes you happy Jesus Barbie!
