PHOTOS: Bristol Palin Before And After Her ‘Corrective Jaw Surgery’

Sometimes people have to have corrective surgery to make them healthier. And sometimes people use needing corrective surgery to justify getting plastic surgery, a la getting a nose job and having your deviated septum fixed in the same procedure. Now, we’re not saying that’s what Bristol Palin did, but she has admitted that her brand new face came from a surgical procedure.

Palin told Us Weekly that she had corrective jaw surgery in December, to which we can attribute the longer, thinner face she unveiled at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Palin’s dentist told her she needed the surgery so that her teeth would align properly. Because somehow, braces and other corrective devices developed by Western science simply could not curtail what must have been a monster overbite.

“Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons,” she told the magazine for its May 23 issue, which will be on newsstands Friday.

Palin also told the magazine she wouldn’t get elective surgery unless she “got in an accident or something terrible and got disfigured.”

Again, we’re not saying she’s lying, but it wouldn’t be the first time someone used the need for corrective surgery to cover up changing the way their face looked — it’s the main plot line for an episode of Glee. Take a look at some before and after pictures of Bristol below.
