Ashley Tisdale went under the knife last Friday for a rhinoplasty procedure and is now recovering with her mother Lisa by her side according to a report.
The 22-year old â€œHigh School Musicalâ€ star decided to go public with the news of her surgery so fans didn’t think she was hiding anything.
She revealed, “I didn’t do this because I believe in plastic surgery. I did this to help my health. I literally almost could not breathe out of the right side of my nose. I want my fans to know the truth. I’m not someone who is going to act like I had nothing done. I just want to be honest because my fans are everything to me.”
She added, “Growing up I always knew I had a deviated septum on the right side of my nose, which caused trouble breathing. The older I got, the worse it got. I went to get it checked out, and the doctor told me the septum was 80 percent deviated and that I had two small fractures on my nose.”
As for her recuperation, she revealed, â€œIâ€™m not feeling great today. Itâ€™s uncomfortable and I hope this is the only time I ever have to go through something like this.â€
About her feeling on five-hour procedure, she said, â€œI was completely scared. I wasnâ€™t looking forward to the surgery at all. I actually had trouble sleeping for a week before.â€
Ashley Tisdale caught the acting bug at the age of 8 when she landed a leading role in the Broadway musical “Les Miserables.” She appeared in shows like “7th Heaven,” “Boston Public,” Strong Medicine” and “Charmed” and later went on to become a household name after playing Maddie Fitzpatrick on the popular Disney series “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.”
