RHONJ‘s Lexi Manzo is all grown up and is being open and honest about some plastic surgery she recently underwent. Dina Manzo, the former Real Housewives of New Jersey star, has been a supportive figure throughout Lexi’s journey.
To start, Lexi explains that when she was a little kid her cousin, Chris Manzo, accidentally broke her nose. At the time her mom didn’t want her to get it correct so Lexi just continued living her life.
“Story time on how I broke my nose and my nose dropped when I was seven or eight. I was playing in the backyard with my cousin Christopher, and he threw up a baseball and swung a bat around and I was behind him and he hit me in the face and he shattered my nose. It was so bad there was blood everywhere. We didn’t even know what was broken. But at the time I was so young that my mom didn’t want me to get it fixed,” she reveals.
Fast forward to 2022 when Lexi goes to the doctor after being “chronically fatigued” and finds out she’s “no getting enough oxygen” to her brain due to the “broken bones” in her nose “blocking the passageway.”
“I just put off ever getting it fixed until last year I went to a chiropractor because I was feeling chronically fatigued,” she continues. “He said to me, it, you’re not getting enough oxygen to your brain cuz you broke your nose and there’s bones blocking the passageway. I said, okay, I’m gonna go get a consult to Raj Kanodia, the best of the best.”
Because Lexi only had “40% breathing in each nostril” she had to get her nose corrected.
“He told me that I only had 40% breathing in each nostril. So I said, sign me up, let’s do the damn thing. I got my surgery six weeks ago, um, six weeks post-op,” she notes.
Lexi had nose surgery six weeks ago and is “really happy with the results.”
“Honestly, I’m really, really happy with the results. I feel like me. I look like me. Most people don’t even know that I had it done. The only difference is the bump from it being broken is gone. Obviously, I can breathe better because of the integrity of my nose, which I’m so happy with. I was really scared that I was gonna look different and I truly looked the same , which is exactly what I wanted,” Lexi explains.
“Just a little bit better without the bump. So you can see now straight. I’m so happy,” she concludes.
Lexi is so grown up. She truly grew up to be such gorgeous woman. She looked great with or without the nose job but it’s awesome she got her breathing corrected and is happy with the result.
RHONJ airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
