Summary: Lisa Kudrow recently admitted to having undergone a rhinoplasty in order to look less “hideous” and she isn’t the only famous ‘Friend’ with a plastic surgery past.

Kudrow Comes Clean

The television show ‘Friends’ ran for 10 years (1994-2004), and during that time there wasn’t one viewer who didn’t fall in love with it. The unique characters touched everyone’s hearts, and possibly the most unique of them all was the quirky “Phoebe” played by actress Lisa Kudrow. Recently Kudrow made a huge announcement (no, not about a ‘Friends’ reunion) letting everyone know that she had undergone a rhinoplasty procedure in her teen years to quote “look less hideous.” We think that Kudrow looks amazing and now we know: plastic surgery may be to thank!

Nose Job News

Many celebrities have had rhinoplasty surgery, but none have been quite as honest about it as Kudrow. The star tells the November-December 2013 issue of The Saturday Evening Post:

“I went from, in my mind, hideous to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn’t know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change.”

Lisa’s “coming out” story is being greatly celebrated in the plastic surgery community. We love to hear stories of plastic surgery gone right, and if Lisa is this happy with her rhinoplasty results what’s not to celebrate? The star also admitted to getting the surgery very young (age 16) which is also a brave thing to come forward with.

More ‘Friends’ Who Praise Plastic Surgery

Lisa Kudrow is not the only famous ‘Friend’ who has experienced a surgical transformation. Many stars of the past and present have used plastic surgery as a way to maintain their looks or improve upon them. Below is a list of Lisa’s famous former co-stars who have also gone under the knife:

  • David Schwimmer: Rhinoplasty (confirmed), Facelift (rumored)
  • Courtney Cox: Facelift, Botox, Neck lift (Courtney is constantly rumored as being a plastic surgery ‘addict’)
  • Jennifer Aniston: Rhinoplasty, Botox, Laser Therapy (all confirmed), Breast augmentation (rumored)

We’ll Be There for You

We love when stars come forward with cosmetic surgery stories because it (literally) gives a famous face to some of the procedures we’ve been considering ourselves. If you have been feeling like your own nose is a little “hideous,” or if you just want to look younger and more rejuvenated than ever before, a Minneapolis plastic surgery procedure may be able to help! Rhinoplasty can change the appearance of your nose (as Kudrow experienced) and other surgeries like Botox and a Facelift can give you smoother, younger looking skin. We have to praise the cast of Friends for being trailblazers, not only for their comedic talents but also for their plastic surgery choices. Now if we could only get them to agree to do a Reunion special…
