Okay....if you haven't heard about or seen the new Bristol Palin, watch out! We're not sure you'd even recognize her right away.
Ever since the reality star and daughter to former Gov. Sarah Palin stepped out recently at a red carpet event, tongues began wagging, and haven't stopped since. There was talk about Bristol dropping a significant amount of weight, and getting a darker, new hair color with most likely, hair extensions. But it was much more than that.
It was her sculpted chin. Gone was the pretty, round-faced, full-cheeked gal, and here arrived a more glamorous, well-defined set of features on a mature young woman.
So, come to find out....it WAS more than a makeup,hair color make-over. Bristol Palin admits, it was surgery. And experts are claiming it was plastic surgery:
"I had corrective jaw surgery," Palin told Us Weekly. "Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons ... so my jaw and my teeth could properly realign ... I don't obsess over my face."
Bristol is only 20-years-old. Should that make a difference? And exactly what does corrective jaw surgerymean? Did she really have a chin implant, a nose job, brow lift, or mini facelift, too?
Who's to say. Bristol Palin will be starring in her own forthcoming reality show alongside her Dancing with the Stars friend, Kyle Massey on the Bio channel. And 2-year-old son, Tripp will also share the TV spotlight.
The question begs-----Was Bristol Palin advised to drop lbs. and get some plastic surgery BEFORE getting her new reality show? Or did she, herself, feel the pressure that so many young women like Bristol feel, in measuring up to Hollywood standards?
We think Bristol Palin was pretty BEFORE the surgery. But we also think she looks amazing AFTER the surgery. And if her round face and chubby cheeks really bothered her before, then we can understand her desire for a self-esteem boost.
