However plastic surgery was seen very differently by the public at that time, and she was shamed for her rhinoplasty.

“When I got it done I was scrutinized, judged, and made to feel ashamed over my decision. I made a decision that was no one‘s business.”

During a recent post in her personal website, she shared that she never imagined that it would be a big deal because “the decision was based on serious health issues.”

Highlighting that she never intended to change her appearance, and all the shaming she received afterwards was extremely “traumatic.”
