The Lady Gaga plastic surgery gossip is pretty entertaining because she denies flat out denies it all! Judging by the before and after photos, though, it's pretty easy to conclude she's had a nose job.
First of all, I have respect for Lady Gaga and like how she doesn't give a crap what anyone thinks of her. Also, she's into super artsy stuff and likes pushing the envelope of social norms. She enjoys putting people outside of their comfort zone and makes heads turn. If you haven't seen her in season 5 of American Horror Story, then you must! She did a marvelous job acting which I didn't know she could do.
Let's get back to the nose job rumors, though! Her nose is overwhelmingly bigger in the before photo. The bridge is wide, the tip is bulbous, and it is extremely prominent compared to the rest of her face. In the after photo her nose is thin, petite, and she has a cute little tip (not the big one in the before photo). It's pretty much a no brainer that she got a nose job, right?
When asked if she'd ever gotten plastic surgery, Lady GaGa had this to say,
"I have never had plastic surgery, and there are many pop singers who have. I think that promoting insecurity in the form of plastic surgery is infinitely more harmful than an artistic expression related to body modification."
I want to believe her, but how can you? Even though she still has a large nose, it isn't as big as it used to be. Her nose is still big by Hollywood standards, but it fits face and gives her a unique sexy appeal. Before it just looked like a huge honker in the middle of her face.
Big noses can be super sexy if they fit a person's face. A standard pencil thin nose doesn't look good on everyone which is what Lady GaGa recognized. I believe she got the bridge shaved down and had the tip reduced in size. Overall, she had her nose reduced in size while maintaining its original character; that's the markings of a perfect nose job. There's no one size fits all type of plastic surgery. A good plastic surgery strives for results that best suits your natural attributes. In the right hands, it's a form of art.
