Bristol Palin has corrective jaw surgery

on May 11, 2011 @ 02:23 pm

Bristol Palin stepped out at the White House Correspondence Dinner looking a little...different. I would never begrudge someone for getting work done if it made them feel better about themselves and happier (you only live once!), however I do give the side eye to someone who won't admit they had a procedure done. There's nothing wrong with admitting vanity. Though maybe there's something to be said about wanting privacy too. However, since she did an interview with US Weekly about the whole thing, I am guessing privacy is not foremost on her mind.

Palin told US Weekly: "I wouldn't get plastic surgery unless I got in an accident or something terrible and got disfigured."

I am no expert on what plastic surgery looks like compared to corrective jaw surgery (which is the only surgery Palin is going on record as saying she had) but it seems like more than just her jaw looks different. Which is fine, but why wouldn't you admit it?

What do you think, should a lady be allowed to keep her business to herself or should she admit and own up that she's had work done?

Probably embarassed to admit it on May 11, 2011 @ 02:56 pm

She probably had a combo of corrective and plastic surgery as she is clearly sporting a new chin. I think most people lie (or omit) when it comes to plastic surgery because there is something embarrassing about admitting you didn't think you were good enough before.

I think she looks great! The weight loss also gives her face a more contoured appearance, which is also flattering.

Own up to it! on May 11, 2011 @ 03:55 pm

How can she deny having surgeries done if it is that apparent? She looks totally different in the two pictures. Denying her surgeries will only make her look like a fool since everyone can see the dramatic changes. I also have to agree with Ali that she looks really good now. If she is brave enough to go through surgeries she should have no shame in admitting them.

lost weight? on May 11, 2011 @ 04:48 pm

maybe she just....lost a bit of fat?
from he looks of it, quite a bit of it was lost too?

I'm guessing that some parts shrink while other parts don't when you lose weight. Maybe she is such the case :O

However, i wouldn't rule out surgery either. ouch! how can she talk?

Nice try, Bristol, but I'm not buying it on May 11, 2011 @ 05:35 pm

I actually think she looked better before! She looked more natural and youthful and now she looks like she's older and trying too hard. But I do think if the change is this dramatic, it's sort of hard NOT to come clean. Like Tammy said, she looks like a fool! If you're a well-known figure, it's very hard to get that privacy you might want anyway.

As for the slimmer face, she looks like she got liposuction.

I just found this article - very interesting! Oral surgeon gives his 2 cents.

Bottom line, fess up, sister. Don't let others think they can achieve such an image without cosmetic surgical help.

I agree that she looks better 'after', and she should just own up to the surgeries and procedures she underwent to look like the 'after'. She is perhaps embarrassed, but she's a public figure and she can't be afforded that cocoon. When you're a public figure, you have to forfeit your privacy. You know, that's sort of where the "public" comes into play.

To undergo such a drastic difference and deny the help of cosmetic surgery is just unethical. It's sending such a horrible message to all the girls out there struggling with body image problems.


At least admit it... on May 12, 2011 @ 12:24 pm

Hahaha i love the excuses some people make about their surgery.
As great as Bristol looks, She looked great even before the procedure! With a little weight loss, and some jaw exercises, she could've "corrected" her jaw! without all that money wasted on a quick fix.

Guaranteed, in 20-40 years, that jaw will turn on her, and then maybe she'll regret having it in the first place?

Hold on, I'm not saying any cosmetic procedure is a bad idea, I've actually been considering it myself for my extremely unmatched eyes, ( i have one double eyelid, and one hooded. Makeup is frustrating! )
I suppose Bristol is aware of the consequences of the procedure, but if only she just owned up to it, so that there won't be yet ANOTHER papparazzi swarm on her in the future!

Plastics has always been an interest of mine, especially since I've come back from South Korea where it's the norm to have yourself "done". If anyone is considering a trip to Korea, you should definitely check out their neighborhood of plastics clinics! (there is literally one street FILLED with them!)

totally agree on May 12, 2011 @ 03:08 pm

I think women should be allowed to indulge in whatever makes them feel better about themselves. But when we aren't open to discussing what that is, what does that say about our own self image? Does it mean we should be ashamed when we take our esteem into our own hands and take action?

I think in many of Bristol's life choices haven't been that great, I have never heard her talk and say anything eloquent or of note, but you hope people grow and she is quite young. This really could have been an opportunity for her to talk about her life choices and what made her decide to change the way she looks if she did, in fact, get cosmetic surgery.

Corrective jaw surgery on Jan 02, 2012 @ 07:21 am

I think its is not only the surgeries
like orthognathic, corrective jaw or stuff like thta. The result is
the combination of surgery and weight loss. She must have worked hard
and loosed weight. Any ways but an elongated and slender chin is
adding to her look.

Since this thread has been bumped up, I thought id comment on it --yes a girl can do whatever she pleases, it is a free world...HOWEVER, dont go denying what you had done when the results CLEARLY show a different story, it just makes you look ridiculous.

In my opinion, I think she looked adorable BEFORE any of the work..she had a bubbly-cutesy look to I think her chin looks almost too long or pointy?? I cant quite describe it.
