Not that I really care either way, but let’s say that Zooey Deschanel did get some kind of nose job, she’ll probably blame it on her deviated septum. It is the Hollywood way. Whenever a celeb gets a nose job, but doesn’t want to admit to have working done for the sake of having work done, this seems to be the reason. Yes, this is a legitimate medical condition. It basically means that the bottom, middle cartilage part of your nose (proper name: septum) is off-center, causing your nostrils to be different sizes.
My septum is deviated. Actually, yours probably is too. Stats say that about 80 percent of the population have deviated septums. It’s usually not serious. And if you have one, life will go on without you ever noticing it except maybe when you have a cold. In more extreme cases, it can inhibit breathing, cause frequent nosebleeds or chronic sinusitis. But mostly, it’s serves as a thinly veiled excuse to get a rhinoplasty. Click through to see all of famous peeps who attributed their nose jobs to deviated septums.
Listen, I’m just telling you what the whole internet is asking and by that I mean Huffington Post. I am not an expert on nose jobs, but Zooey Deschanel’s beak does look a touch shorter in the right photo (taken at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night). Then again, could be lighting and makeup. Perhaps we should ask Siri. [Huffington Post]
File under: Problems we didn’t know we could even have. Because women don’t have enough of a perfection complex in our culture, now comes the latest plastic surgery craze: toe-slimming surgery, for those with toe-bese phalanges. Apparently plastic surgeons are seeing a rise in people requesting toe-shortening and slimming procedures. Surgeon Oliver Zong says the operation was born out of patient requests. But just because you ask, doesn’t mean that a plastic surgeon will perform it. Says Dr. Hillary Brenner, of the American Podiatric Medical Association, “I don’t think it’s ethical unless you’re having pain.” Keep reading »
Bras, braces, makeup are all rites of passage for many teen girls. But if you’re a member of the Marshall family, so are boob jobs.
Britney Marshall, a 14-year-old from Nottinghamshire, England, is the youngest girl of the Marshall family and the only one without breast implants. Her mother, Chantal Marshall, told the Sun, “Britney is going through a funny phase at the moment and saying she doesn’t want to get her boobs done.”
And Marshall really wishes she would, telling the Sun:
“At the moment she doesn’t really have what I would say are boobs — but I’d like her to follow in her sisters’ footsteps… I really love the fake look of my girls and I know Britney will go that way when she’s a bit older.” Read more…
At 79 years old, Joan Rivers has finally decided to embrace her natural beauty. This video is most definitely NSFW, due to a reference to Betty White’s poop. Keepin’ it classy, Joan.
Remember adorable, sassy Lisa Turtle from “Saved By The Bell”? This is what she looks like these days.
What’s in a nose? A Miami plastic surgeon doesn’t want a big schnoz to get in the way of true love, so he’s decided to offer members of his local Orthodox Jewish community free or greatly reduced nose jobs in order to increase their chances at finding a mate.
Dr. Michael Salzhauer is an Orthodox Jew, and a father of five, so he feels it’s perfectly reasonable and respectable to offer the service to bad-nose-having members of his community. But others say it’s rather tacky and controversial.

Yesterday, after playing basketball with two of my guy friends, we took a trip to Walmart. I was walking ahead looking for a cart when I noticed my dude friends looking sort of bewildered. Lost, even. I called out to them to hurry up and they staggered towards me like they were drunk or had been hit over the head. That’s when I saw her. Well, perhaps I should say that’s when I saw it. I will admit, it was rather tantalizing. It big and round, moved side to side on its own accord, as if trying to hypnotize onlookers. It strolled right past me and within moments, my guys were back at my side, wide-eyed, mouths agape.
“With an ass like that, no wonder he put a ring on it,” said one of my friends, a college-educated Wall Street banker, referring to the woman who had just passed with her husband. I was frozen, partially in disgust, but mostly in amazement. For my guy friends, the simple fact that this lady had an abnormally well-rounded behind was the most important reason why her husband wanted to marry her. Keep reading »
