Tara Parker-Tomkinson May Have Had Nose Job for Royal Wedding

It was hard to miss the Lady in Bright Blue, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton last week. While she did look absolutely stunning, she got a lot of attention for--well--drawing attention away from the bride. But the socialite and former baby-sitter of Princes William and Henry was probably trying to draw the attention to her new nose. 

Tara admits that years of cocaine abuse ($400 a day of it) caused her nose to collapse. She fixed it with a full rhinoplasty procedure in 2006, but according to her, "general wear and tear" caused it to look smashed and crooked. And one knows a bad nose is not acceptable for a royal wedding! 

What does a socialite do to fix an embarrassing feature just days before a big event? The increasingly popular non-surgical nose job

According to Bay Area Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Mabrie, "Non Surgical Rhinoplasty involves using fillers to sculpt and shape the nose. This may build a low bridge, camouflage a small hump, even add definition to some tips.  It is a great option for patients who have already had a surgical rhinoplasty. The results usually last 6-9 months, depending on what type of filler is used. Some longer lasting results may be achieved with semi-permanent fillers like ArteFill."

Tara's nose fix appears to be a success. Hopefully this one works and she won't become the next Michael Tara Parker-Tomkinson after nose jobJackson of rhinoplasty. With a camera-ready schnoz she can put her past to behind her and not be reminded of what caused her disfiguring dilemma.
