It’s her body, her choice.
Australian businesswoman and owner and director of public relations firm, Sweaty Betty PR, Roxy Jacenko has been missing from our social media worlds recently. Usually known for her constant public updates and for posting many photos on her daughter, Pixie Curtis‘ Instagram account, the Aussie personality has been MIA.
And now we know why.
Today, Jacenko posted a photo on both her daughter’s and her own Instagram account donning two black eyes and a bandage on her nose. Speculations quickly erupted about a nose job, and they turned out to be right.
This photo was uploaded to the 34-year-old's Instagram account with the caption, "Seems appropriate that I went for earthy tones for today's ensemble! Match your face with your scarf kinda thing. Ha!"
Many of Jacenko's fans embraced her new look and said she was brave for letting the world know about her choice, others unfortunately were not so supportive.
There were comments like these:
These comments are unnecessary. Because no one knows the reason behind the surgery.
But I know because I've been there.
When I was younger I used to play hockey - I was a rep player and trained and played most days of the week. During a game on a freezing cold Canberra morning I was whacked square in the face - I still can't remember if it was from a stick or a ball - the details are hazy. But I remember the thump, the sound, the immediate pain and the taste of blood. I was in high school.
The swelling and bruising came and went, but my nose never looked the same. It was crooked, I couldn't breathe out of it properly and it made me drool really badly when I slept at night. I hated my profile, I would try to avoid anyone looking at me from the side at all costs. I hated the big crooked mess in the middle of my face.
So I went to the doctor and told her about what had happened, about how I couldn't breathe properly out of my nose and about how it had been broken once. After numerous scans and x-rays, she told me it needed to be fixed because I would have a whole lot of breathing problems in the future if I didn't.
