Why deviated septum surgery? And a better question who’s had the surgery. Before these questions can be answered effectively, a brief introduction into what a deviated septum is needs to be examined. The nasal septum is the area of the nose that separates the nasal passages. The septum is made up of both bone and cartilage.
A deviated septum is when that bone and cartilage of the nose is no longer straight. there are a few ways that a septum may deviate, one way is at birth. this type of deviation is called congenital.
Hollywood is full of actors and actresses that have gone under the knife to fix a deviated septum. there are many that have done it for the sake of looks and there are those that have needed them because of health reasons. What ever the reason the jury is out on whether or not it has helped or hurt their career.
Some of the most notable actresses that have gone under the knife to get their noses worked on are most recently Jennifer Anniston , and Cameron Diaz. again whether it was necessary or whether it affected their looks the jury is still out. Either way so far it doesn’t appear that their careers have suffered as a result.
Remarkably there is one actress who’s career suffered as a result of a nose surgery was Jennifer Grey. many will remember her from her most notable movies being Dirty Dancing, and Red Dawn. after her role in the film Dirty Dancing, Grey decided to have a nose job to remove the bump from her nose.
It is true that the bridge of her nose, had a bump on it, and it was well noticed, but that nose was who she was, and it was a part of her. It was so much a part of her that even some friends didn’t really recognize her wants she recovered from her surgery.
There are plenty enough pictures and Access Hollywood type interviews out there to see that the results of her surgery have almost literally changed her look to be another person all together
In an interview after her surgery she stated that the surgery on her nose was the worst mistake she had ever made. she stated that she didn’t look like the girl from dirty dancing, just someone who somewhat resembled that girl.
There are some more recent starlets that have received similar comments since going under the knife. A phrase has come out nick named the Jennifer Grey syndrome, which has been attached to celebrities such as Ashlee Simpson and Ashley Tisdale from High School Musical
If your considering a surgery for yourself, a visit to the doctors office will determine whether deviated septum surgery is necessary. The doctor will start out by using an endoscope, a thin lighted instrument, to view your nasal passages and the shape your septum. The surgery typically takes between 1 to 1 hours, usually under local or general anesthesia. in most cases this is an outpatient surgery.
