Southern Charm star Noamie Olindo showed off a new look on Instagram on Thursday, February 15, and revealed that she’d had a nose job.
The reality TV star admitted in the comments on her post that she’s had the surgery after a commenter wrote that they almost didn’t recognize her. “New [nose],” she wrote, using a nose emoji.
Then another person told her she was “very brave” to undergo the procedure while in the public eye. “Only regret is not doing it sooner,” Olindo replied, telling another fan that there was “no point in hiding ANYthing” and explaining she only had the operation 13 days ago and was “still very swollen.”
She later opened up about her cosmetic surgery in an interview with BravoTV.com’s The Lookbook.
“Getting my nose done was something I’ve wanted since I was 8 years old,” she said. “It’s still early in my recovery but I’ve never been happier. My surgeon, [NYC-based] Dr. [A Joshua] Zimm, did the most amazing job and my only regret is not having done it sooner! Plastic surgery shouldn’t be taboo.
“If there’s something about yourself that you don’t like and you have the opportunity to change it, why wouldn’t you?” she continued. “I did it for me and no one else and want to be as open as possible about it. I’m so happy with my decision and would do it 100 times over.”
Olindo’s new look comes five months after her split from Craig Conover. The pair, who dated for almost three years and appeared on the Bravo hit together, split in September.
