Bella Hadid has spoken candidly for the first time about having surgery, revealing she had a nose job when she was just 14.
“I was the uglier sister. I was the brunette. I wasn’t as cool as Gigi, not as outgoing,” she explained.
She added that she regretted going under the knife at such a young age.
Bella, who is half-Palestinian and half-Dutch, continued: “I wish I had kept the nose of my ancestors. I think I would have grown into it.”
While she has previously staunchly denied having surgery, fans of the model has flocked to support her for her honesty.
Taking to Twitter, one person said: “Nah, good on Bella Hadid coming forward about that, the right thing to do when young girls are comparing themselves to something not real unless they put themselves on a surgery table.”
A second person agreed: “I honestly give Bella Hadid applause for admitting getting her nose done! I really do think passing off work done as ‘natural puberty’ is terrible for our society!!!”
“Bella Hadid admitting to her nose job was not on my 2022 bingo card but im proud of her and that vogue article is beautiful,” said a third.
“At least Bella Hadid is brave to admit about her nose job unlike the other model/models around keep on denying about the enhancement and surgery they have on,” a fourth wrote.
“Thank you @bellahadid for being so open and honest about this!” added a fifth. "So much respect to you! I appreciate everyone's unique features (especially those typically: seen as 'flaws') & I think your 'before' nose was stunning and added to the uniqueness & beauty of your appearance.”
And a sixth pointed out: “Everyone bashing Bella Hadid for getting work done is the REASON so many celebrities hide their procedures!
“There is nothing wrong with getting plastic surgery. You haters probably had braces, 9+ months of shifting the bones in your skull, but want to hate on someone's nose job?”
Dr Gemma Applegarth, a counselling psychologist within the NHS, believes celebrities speaking out about their surgeries is only beneficial for those who struggle with body image.
"We are constantly exposed to perfection," she tells Tyla. "Many of us check our phones the moment we wake, exposing us to a constant flood of images. Over time we develop a sense that these perfect images must be the normal body and we begin to see our tiniest flaws and uniqueness as a major problem. When this occurs we run the risk of developing depression, anxiety, social fears or even body dysmorphia, where what we see in the mirror no longer reflects the reality but a version of ourselves with amplified flaws."
