Most people who decide to have rhinoplasty usually do so because they don’t feel good about the way their nose looks. This is reflected without regard to specific ethnicity, gender, or whether someone is famous or just an “Average Joe.”

Stephanie Rice is the latest public figure to step out into the limelight to show off her new nose after rhinoplasty.

Who Is Stephanie Rice?

Australian Swimmer Stephanie Rice Opts for Rhinoplasty to Boost Self-Esteem

Stephanie Rice is an Australian swimmer who received three gold medals in the Summer Olympics in Beijing. In 2009, she was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia.

With all of these great physical achievements in life, there was one physical issue she wasn’t able to let go of: She was incredibly self-conscious of her nose. When Rice was a teenager, she suffered a horrible accident in a pool, which led to a nasal deformity. She also suffered chronic sinusitis due to the broken nose and subsequent damaged tissue in her sinus cavity.

While her friends and family would tell Rice her nose looked “fine,” she still had random people saying things about it. This is part of what led her to feel so badly about her nose that she sought out two rhinoplasty procedures to correct the shape of her nose (external) and the sinusitis issues (internal). And Rice isn’t alone; Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington also underwent rhinoplasty.

Results of Rhinoplasty Are Life Changing

In an interview with WHO magazine, Rice states, “Seeing the better version of my nose made me realize how much it had been affecting me.”

She also stated, “Everyone will have an opinion, and what I’ve learned over the years is that you can’t do things to please people. I love the result.”
