As many eagle-eyed readers noted in yesterday’s Kourtney Kardashian post (about In Touch’s cover story regarding Scott Disick “betraying” Kourtney), In Touch Weekly is running a small story about Ashlee Simpson’s nose. To be more specific, it’s about her nose “growing back”. Now, Ashlee had a very noticeable nose job back in 2006. She denied it for a little while, then finally admitted it. Personally, I think this was one of those occasions where one surgery made a drastic, positive improvement on someone’s looks, and I was only offended when Ashlee seemed to think she could deny it or not simply be honest.
Anyway, In Touch asks if her old nose is growing back. The whole story is based on some recent photos of Ashlee over the past month, and ITW got a “doctor” to weigh in. Jezebel had the basics:
Ashlee Simpson’s “old nose is back”. Doesn’t the 2010 picture look like someone tampered with it? Dr. Steven J. Pearlman was asked to weigh in on the difference between her nose now and her nose in 2006, and he — quite astutely — points out: “The photo of her now is from a straight-on angle, while the one of her in 2006 is a side profile. No nose will look the same from different angles.” O RLY?

Honestly, though, from certain angles it does look like Ashlee’s old nose is growing back. It’s not as big as it used to be, but it definitely looks bigger than it did immediately post-surgery.
Here’s Ashlee’s nose in chronological order:
In 2005, pre-surgery:
In 2006, immediately post-surgery:
And in 2010, as it “grows back”:
