“Brutal” and “hard” were some of the terms mentioned when she explained how difficult her life was during junior high school because of the appearance of her nose. According to Kudrow, even her closest friends got tired of her tagging along, and eventually they left her with no one but her family to rely on. It was only after her nose job that she began to feel more comfortable with herself. When referring to how the procedure impacted her life, Kudrow said, “That was life altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous.”
Lisa Kudrow’s reason for undergoing plastic surgery is not at all uncommon by today’s standards. In fact, more children and teenagers are undergoing surgical procedures to correct deformities than ever before. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than 230,000 cosmetic surgical procedures were performed on patients aged 13 to 19 last year, with rhinoplasty, male breast reduction, and ear surgery being the most popular.
