'Bachelorette' Jillian Harris Got a Nose Job for All the Right Reasons

Inspiring 6

Jillian HarrisWell, I guess the cat is officially out of the bag. Former Bachelorette Jillian Harris got a nose job, and she's sick and tired of keeping quiet about it. (Nobody else was, so I guess she went by the "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" philosophy.)

In an exclusive interview with Wetpaint, Jillian spilled the beans on why she decided to go under the knife in the first place, and no, it's not because she wanted to look 10 years younger or because she's vain or shallow or anything like that.

Actually, her reasoning may surprise you.

Jillian explained how hurt she was after reading some very nasty comments about her nose on a blog, and so she decided to talk to her mom about the possibility of getting it fixed. You see, Jillian broke her nose a few years prior, and when it healed, it didn't quite look the same as it had before.

She visited a plastic surgeon who assured her that he could give her her old nose back, and so she took the plunge.

She recovered quickly, she's thrilled with the results, and she doesn't regret her decision for one second. And you know what? She shouldn't regret it. And she shouldn't have to defend her decision to anyone either, for that matter.

Here's the thing -- when it comes to getting plastic surgery, there are people who do it because they're desperate to look like someone they're not, and then there are those who simply want to feel confident and happy in their own skin, like Jillian.

And I'm sure if I had broken my nose and looked in the mirror and didn't quite recognize the person staring back at me, I'd want to do something about it too. Who can blame Jillian for wanting to look like herself again? Anyone who says they'd feel differently in her shoes should probably take a walk in them first before throwing unnecessary criticism her way.

I think Jillian really summed things up best by saying, "I’ve never had any other plastic surgery done, no. No, I have no plans. Maybe when I’m 40, I’ll reanalyze the situation. But for now, I’m happy."

(Amen. Isn't being happy what we all strive for anyway?)

Have you considered having plastic surgery?

Sorry, Mary, but who are you to judge what the "right" reason is for getting plastic surgery? Even if she had gotten it just because she wanted to feel better about herself and be more confident, then it's the right reason for HER.

She got it because people were bullying her not because she wanted to look like her old nose. She didn't want to get it fixed tel she saw people bullying her online. I don't believe she got it done for the right reasons because her nose has been like that for years why fix it after you see people bullying you online. I actually liked her nose because it was different and not a tiny boring cookie cutter nose that everyone wants. It's ok to be different and unique. I thought she was very pretty and cute with that nose.

if she truly wanted to feel better about herself and be confident in her own skin she should have fixed her head, not her nose.

I didn't realize she had had a nose job until I heard her voice on HGTV and I didn't recognize her and so I looked up who was hosting "Love it or List It" and voila. To me a profound transformation. I think she was pretty before the surgery and now I think she looks very cookie cutter. How sad that bullying on the internet causes someone to make such a huge decision. She'll probably read these comments and get her nose changed back the way it was before. Poor Jillian. Therapy might be cheaper.

i agree, I liked it better before, I thought it made her looked really pretty but it doesnt matter. its her life! her face!

why does every woman who has a nose job say it is because of a deviated septum , or I broke it years ago! B.S. you had a nose job period end of story!
