I´m not particularly fond of Princess Leticia, even though I love the SRF, but so what if she had to have an operation in her nose?Casa Real says it was for health reasons, but even if it wasn´t, what´s the harm in it?

The difference is recognisible but I think her nose was better, more carismatic. But she looks fine I guess we will get used to it eventually. She can have an operation on her nose. It's her nose she can do anything she wants :)

I don't understand why Leitzia is being crucified for having her nose operated on primarily for medical reasons! Did Maxima and Rania receive the same level of criticism when they had their cosmetic surgeries?

Because the truth sends a negative message. By the way, I can't understand why many people are against plastic surgeries. Rhinoplasty isn't a sin. After all, we live in the 21th century.

Well, many ppl meet surgeries with lots of respect. With reason IMO. There are still many ppl, who get in (even fatal) danger through anesthesia, drugs (pain killers, antibiotics--->allergies)...there are things as infections of wounds and necrosis. So many ppl can´t understand, why other ppl would endanger their bodies for surgeries, which are actually not neccessary.
They would understand it even the less, if those persons have e.g. little children.
Getting a surgery done is nothing like dyeing ones hair.
Of course jealousy might be also involved. Most ppl can´t afford plastic surgeries or only through a lot of saving.
Some ppl also find the results "plain ugly" as some adjustments (huge breasts, face lifts) don´t look "natural" and "human"

Personally I am thinking, that it´s indeed up to the people...for my aesthetic perception things must look natural...therefore I am e.g. considering Leti´s "new" nose as ok, but e.g. Queen Silvia´s facial "adjustments" as "ridiculous looking"

Maxima got plastic surgery done

I didn't know that Maxima had cosmetic surgery? What kind of? Is it only a guess or a rumour?

It seems to me to be incredible that all the persons who criticize this operation of the princess Letizia, before had not praised that she was visiting the patients in four different hospitals.
It is sure that an operation of nose is more important, tha Fulfillment with her obligations and duty
Incredible ... and sad.

I couldn't agree more pamk. Her nose and chin made the character in her face and that's now gone. Her nose now looks like the noses of countless ambitious soap actresses or reality-tv show presenters: fake and standardized. Maybe some of the old shape returns once the swelling has gone. There is still an option which I would like to believe in, that the correction of the deviated septum was not possible without the correction of the shape of her nose. If I am right, I actually feel sorry for her, having to give up her original nose and getting plenty of stick from everybody for the inevitable. If I am wrong, well, she will have thought of the consequences and now has to live with them.

Whatever the truth the whole thing hasn't done her or the SRF any favours. The plane crash forced her to come out of her recovery period and instead of being in charge of the whole PR she has to react. The timing was more than unlucky (not her fault) and probably nobody in Spain will believe that the whole procedure was done for medical reasons only, as casareal wants to make people believe. She will now somehow pick up the stigma of a celebrity, altering her appearance for vanity what is sending out the wrong message and doesn't have role-model character.

In the beginning she always acted as a tough modern woman who wanted to be recognized as hard-working professional Sofia II but unfortunately she could not keep up with her own high standards. First she was reduced to Felipe's handbag, then this summer she opted for going down the celebrity path with short dresses and ultramodern sunglasses and shoes which give her the vain and obsessed-with-looks touch. The nose correction only adds up to that. Sadly, the appearance of Princess Letizia in August 2008 has finally become unrecognizable from the appearance of the fiancee Letizia Ortiz in her white pantsuit in November 2003.

I rather like her new nose. Fine, she has lost her original shape. My own nose isn´t perfect but I have never thought of having it changed but some women really hate their noses and for some reason the ones that have a slightly hooked nose seem to hate them most. I rather like them, they look patrician. But if she feels better with it, well good luck to her. It must be very trying having all angles of photographs taken and perhaps this new nose makes her feel more relaxed when cameras are pointed at her.
I would have been more than happy having her original nose instead of mine, but we are all different.

This is cosmetic surgery.
The shape of the tip of her nose was changed and the small hump on top of the noses's bridge was removed (the latter being the more complicated procedure).
Surgery on a deviated septum does not lead to an alteration of the outside appearance of a nose. If any medical surgery was done at all, then cosmetic surgery was performed simultanously but seperately.

I know about Rania and of course I've seen pictures of her before the operations but I knew nothing about Maxima !

Are there any pictures of the Princess of Orange before the plastic surgeries to compare them with the after surgery photos? Any articles which claim that?

That is probably correct, but I personally believe the first concern was the deviated septum and while they were there ---what the heck -- fix everything. I certainly would have done that if my nose needed a tweek. I still, for the life of me, can't see a huge difference in the before and after. And I still can't see what she had done to her eyes, as someone prior said she had done. I am still amazed with her skin (Mary's also from Denmark) as that impresses me 100% more. No sun damage discoloration in such a warm climate is great at her age.

What's big deal about her operation/correction? That's her business. She is not the first royal who has done something it and not the last. Does other royals recive some criticism when they use botox or had face liftings?

About recovery after plastic surgery, it depend of the human (genes). One can has big signs of f.ex. nose job any other almost none.

I don´t see any problem, if she wanted to look better she had the right. But you don´t realize at thirty something that you have problems to breath. The thing is she doesn´t look better after the job, maybe because it´s too soon.

I think Letizia is and was a fantastic looking woman, but I think her face has lost some of it's character. It's all nice being perfect looking with even features, yet there was something so unique about her with the slight hook to her nose, and her slightly unperfect teeth (a little bit buck) and her protuding chin. She has much chic and good taste, a fantstic figure to boot. This nose job, (which was for mainly esthietetic reasons IMHO) will draw alot of criticsm, and I think it took away the personality from her face.
