According to the experts, your nose isn’t done changing until adulthood.
Now, social-media users are coming after Bella’s parents, Yolanda and Mohamed Hadid, accusing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and the real estate developer of being bad parents for letting Bella get a nose job so young.
“So Bella Hadid has finally admitted to having a nose job,” wrote a user. “I’m just shocked Yolanda & Mohamed let her get a nose job at 14. FOURTEEN years old.”
“Getting plastic surgery at 14 years old when you haven’t even grown into your features is sad as hell,” wrote another user.
“Is it morally ethical as a surgeon to perform plastic surgery on a 14 year old who simply ‘didn’t like’ their nose and not because they had some kind of defect obstructing their breathing?” asked another user on Twitter.
“So Yolanda Hadid allowed Bella to get plastic surgery at 14 but wouldn’t allow her daughters to eat more than 3 almonds and a slice of cake?” wrote a user.
Social media users are also proving their point via an old clip of Yolanda telling older daughter Gigi Hadid to “have a couple of almonds and chew them really well” to combat hunger pangs.
Meanwhile, some are suggesting that Bella was essentially encouraged to downplay her “Palestinian genes” in favor of her “Dutch genes,” because beauty standards are entrenched “with whiteness and eurocentric features.”
“Yolanda really married a Palestinian man then got mad at her kids for having the features to prove it,” wrote another user.
Other than a nose job, Bella denied getting other procedures, such as fillers, telling Vogue: “People think I fully fucked with my face because of one picture of me as a teenager looking puffy. I’m pretty sure you don’t look the same now as you did at 13, right?”
So let’s ask the experts: When does your nose technically stop growing? According to VeryWell Health, your nose isn’t done changing until adulthood: “Your nose grows throughout childhood and your teen years. It may even grow a bit during early adulthood. But after that, any changes you notice are not related to nose growth. Instead, they’re the result of changes to your skin and cartilage that alter the shape of the nose. These changes are a natural part of aging.”
