Rebecca Adlington happier after nose job, but not necessarily happy


Read The Independent

Rebecca Adlington has managed to overcome insecurities about her appearance, after becoming targeted by internet trolls who criticised her features.


The Olympic gold-winning swimmer reportedly underwent nose slimming surgery at a leading Harley Street clinic in February this year.

“I’m definitely happier with how I look now,” she told The Daily Mail, of her ongoing struggles with her body image. “But I wouldn’t necessarily say happy. I think you still always see the same thing when you look in the mirror. A lot of people tell me that you get more comfortable with yourself with age and obviously I’ve still got a lot of growing up to do.

“But I will never have this figure that’s big-boobed and tiny waist and curvaceous bum. I know I have got slightly bigger shoulders than some people and an average cup size, that’s not going to change.”
