- Priyanka Chopra recently got candid about having to go through corrective surgeries after a nose job went wrong
- The star spoke candidly in an interview about how the botched job ruined her confidence and became a talking-point for tabloids
- Priyanka said that it had taken years of surgeries and confidence-building to get her to the stage where she loves her face again
Priyanka Chopra has been promoting her memoir and recently revealed in an interview that she suffered a botched nose job when she was younger.
According to the star, the nose job was intended to remove a polyp (a small growth) from the bridge of her nose to aid in her breathing and alleviate her asthma symptoms.
Chopra said that when she saw the results of the surgery she was taken aback by how different her nose looked.
In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the star described how the surgery had gone wrong:
"While shaving off the polyp, the doctor also accidentally shaved the bridge of my nose and the bridge collapsed."
"When it was time to remove the bandages and the condition of my nose was revealed, Mom and I were horrified. My original nose was gone. My face looked completely different. I wasn't me any more."
The surgery had a significant effect on the celeb's self-esteem and body image. She described how she felt like a stranger was staring back at her every time she looked in a mirror.
Chopra added that she was also criticised by tabloids and the media for her appearance, which only worsened her confidence.
The actress told Entertainment Tonight that, in the subsequent two decades, she has undergone multiple corrective procedures and has come to accept and embrace her appearance:
"While it took a few years ... I've gotten accustomed to this face. Now when I look in the mirror, I am no longer surprised; I've made peace with this slightly different me. This is my face. This is my body. I might be flawed, but I am me."
