It's no secret that Bachelor Pad 2's Vienna Girardi recently went under the knife -- but only Us Weekly has the exclusive before and after shots of the reality star's new nose.

"I always felt like I had this little face with, like, a Mr. Potato Head nose!" Girardi, 25, tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out now). So when the Bachelor vet befriended castmate Erica Rose, 28, while filming Bachelor Pad 2, she couldn't help but admire her new pal's profile.

"Erica said, 'Oh,' I had my nose done! My dad [Houston-based plastic surgeon Franklin Rose] will do yours!' A week after, I had a plane ticket!"

For Girardi -- who squares off against ex Jake Pavelka, 33, on Bachelor Pad 2 (premiering on ABC August 8 at 8 p.m. EST) -- the cosmetic procedure was long overdue.

"It's something I've wanted since I was 9 or 10," she explains. "In school, they called me Pinocchio. After The Bachelor, bloggers called me 'horse face.' Evil names. I event went blonde because my dark hair made my nose look bigger!"

The procedure was, as she anticipated, quite painful. "After the surgery, you literally feel like you've had your skull cracked open," Girardi tells Us. While recuperating at the Roses, Girardi's boyfriend, Bachelorette alum Kasey Kahl, 27, "sat in bed with me, and we ordered Chinese food and watched The Bachelorette!"

Though Girardi has admitted to getting breast implants in the past, the ABC reality star says she "definitely" won't be getting anything else done in the near future. "I'm not saying get 20 surgeries, but if there's something you don't like about yourself, go ahead and change it!"
