Bristol Palin is trying to save face by insisting her new look is the result of a necessary medical procedure—not cosmetic surgery.
… She told Us Weekly the procedure was necessary so her jaw and teeth could properly realign. “Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons,” she told the magazine for its May 23 issue.
Palin said while growing up she wore braces and a device to correct an overbite. But her dentist warned her there was a still a possibility she would need surgery one day. The single mom declared she would never get plastic surgery “unless I got in an accident or something terrible.”
Palin, who recently landed a reality show of her own, said she was happy with her new look. “I look older, more mature and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face,” she said.
OK. Let’s see just how many procedures we could guess that went on here:
1) Brow lift. If you compare older photos of Bristol (like, recent older photos), now it looks like she’s got a permanent look of surprise etched on her face.
2) Lipo around the jowls and chin. Sorry, but no dental realignment is going to suck the double chin off your face, girl.
3) Lip injections. They might have been minor injections, but isn’t that how they all start off?
4) Rhinoplasty. It totally looks like there’s much more room in between her top lip and the tip of her nose, but hey. Maybe that’s that dental magic at work.
Either way, we, like, totally shouldn’t judge. I mean, this is a hard-working, young single mother, and even if she DID get a whole new face to go with her whole new LA-livin’ reality star life, we can’t blame her. Look what it did for Kate Gosselin, duh.
