Alexa Ray Joel Nose Job: Plastic Surgery Before & After (PHOTOS)

Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley's daughter Alexa Ray got a nose job earlier this month, she told People.

"I was thinking about getting this for years," said Alexa, 24. She said her nose "always bothered me a little bit. I was self-conscious of pictures taken from the side. To some people that's vain, but at the end of the day, we all want to feel pretty."

Alexa said that she's done with plastic surgery and would never mess with her body like Heidi Montag did. She added that she waited to get the procedure until she was in a better place than she was in December when she overdosed on pills in an attempt to harm herself.

"Would it have been smart to get this procedure last year?" she said. "No. I didn't know who I was." But now, "I feel really good."
