In the current edition of Us Weekly, Ashlee Simpson seems to acknowledge her rhinoplasty for the first time, saying, “I think as long as people have two eyes, then you probably know the answer.” But is she happy with the work that was done? She goes on to say, “I don’t think I am more beautiful than I was [before].” Perhaps she’s being modest. Let’s take a look at Ashlee’s work from a professional point of view.
The biggest change that we notice from profile view is the conversion of her convex nasal bridge to a relatively straight bridge. This is accomplished by cutting the cartilage and bone of the bridge off. This leaves an “open roof” of nasal bones that is closed surgically with controlled fracture of the nasal bones inward. The result is a narrower, smaller nose with a straight profile. From the profile views, another interesting thing happens visually. The tip of the nose appears to rotate upward as the bump is removed. While sometimes its necessary to surgically rotate the tip for droopy nasal tips, Ashley’s new perkier tip is mostly an optical illusion. Her tip has also been refined by debulking some of the tip cartilages.
