Ashley Tisdale Nose Job Interview People Magazine

Ashley Tisdale sat down with People Magazine to discuss her recent nose augmentation. Ashley had surgery on November 30th to correct a deviated septum that worsened over the years and contributed to breathing problems. She says her nose had changed shape and ”was leaning in a different direction” after being fractured twice. She says she regrets her decision to sing at last month’s Z100 Jingle Ball concert in New York City two weeks after the surgery. Many fans say they are barely able recognize the “High School Musical” star now that she’s got a new beak.

In People’s Jan. 28 issue, Ashley describes the surgery aftermath: ”I was so swollen, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, is it going to stay like this?”’

”People were saying I was ‘unveiling my look,’ but I was still recovering! That’s not what I look like right now,” she tells the magazine. Ashley believes her face looked ”practically paralyzed” in photos of the Dec. 15 event but she is now able to make facial expressions and even scrunch up her nose.

”I think I still look like me.”

She begins shooting the ”High School Musical 3” feature film in April.

Tisdale says she decided to talk about her surgery because she ”didn’t want to play a game of denying it or being coy. I wanted my fans to know because I don’t take plastic surgery lightly,” she says.
