Another Olympic Swimmer Has a Nose Job


Former Olympic swimmer Stephanie Rice has rhinoplasty

Twenty-five year-old Stephanie Rice has just revealed the outcome of her nose job this week. It is her second rhinoplasty surgery to correct her nose that was broken during a swimming accent years ago. The Australian swimmer is proudly showing off her beautiful new nose and is not denying that she had corrective surgery to make her nose more attractive.

Rice comments on her nose job

Rice commented that she was "so glad that she did it" to Australia's Who magazine. She added that she did receive negative comments about her nose, but that before she broke it, she was not displeased with the way it looked at all. She had been waiting for a break in her swimming schedule so that she could finally have the nose job. Ten years after breaking her nose, she had two different surgeries on it. One was in Brisbane in 2012 and the other was in Sydney in January, 2014.

Nose job success convinced swimmer that she may have more plastic surgery if needed

Rice commented that 'Seeing the better version of my nose made me realize how much it had been affecting [her].' The swimmer did not rush into the surgery, but thought about it carefully for ten years. Her first surgery was to fix the bump at the bridge of her nose that resulted from the break. The second nose job narrowed her nose to give it a more balanced look. Rice's first surgery was completed because she was having medical issues caused by the break. The second surgery was also partially cosmetic and partially medical since she still suffered from sinusitis, reduced airflow, and a deviated septum. Rice contends that she now breathes much better than she did before her nose job.

The swimmer is not yet retired

Rice is not yet retired and is now training with the possibility of competing at the Commonwealth Games trials in April. She took last year off for her nose surgeries. She explained that she shared her story about her nose jobs in the hope that her story would help someone else who is considering rhinoplasty. She said that she received some criticism for her second surgery from people who said that she was using a medical reason as an excuse for having a nose job. The swimmer said that she realized that she needed to do what was best for her and for health, as well as for her looks.
