Carmen Campuzano Nose

First of all: "Who is Carmen Campuzano?

For those who are not familiar with Carmen Campuzano, Carmen was a Mexican model that obviously has had some tragically awful plastic surgery. Unfortunately, Carmen Campuzano’s severely botched nose job is just one of the many disasters to befall the once successful supermodel, who has graced the cover of Vogue a record three times. It has to be said that Carmen Campuzano currently works as an event organizer and hostess. 

Carmen has suffered from drug and alcohol abuse, which has turned her life into a living hell. As a result of her addictions, she has been run over by a taxi, severed a finger, broken her arm so badly that it had to be reconstructed, she’s been committed to a mental institution, attempted suicide, overdosed on cocaine and lost custody of her children.

As you can observe judging by the photos, Carmen made a really bad decision when it comes to plastic surgery. But who can blame her? She was doing a lot of cocaine then! The question is :"Can Carmen stop doing cocaine in order to let a nose job heal?"

Many people reasonably may wonder : "How did Carmen Campuzano’s nose end up in its currently deformed state?"

Well, there are several stories out there swirling around, but a severe cocaine addiction, an overly aggressive plastic surgeon and a battle with a flesh eating bacteria (that Carmen picked up from stepping in pig poop!) could all be contributing factors in the disfigurement of her nose.

As you can realize by viewing the photos Carmen did have a big nose in 1999 but she later chopped off about half her nose.

In detail, the plastic surgeon succeeded in making the tip of the nose. What went wrong was the nasal phalanges on the sides of her nose. Too much flesh was removed and without enough support, the nostrils collapsed. Subsequently, doctors performed various surgeries to try and give it some structure and repair the nose but so far no luck. Not only that, but Carmen has had trouble with infections, fluid and blood flow in her sinuses which can potentially be very dangerous and has required further surgeries.

It has been reported in 2011 that Carmen Campuzano will undergo surgery on her nose due to an infection that has spread to other parts of her face. In 2011, Campuzano had an operation because of bleeding, inflammation and sinus problems.

Of course there were complications due to countless modifications to her nose. Sadly, after her nasal phalanges were damaged badly enough that she appears disfigured, reconstruction attempts were made but the doctors have not been able to recreate a natural look or repair the normal function of the nose. The tragic thing is that it is likely she will have to have the nose removed and wear a prosthetic in her later years, or else have a transplant.

To conclude, Carmen demonstrates the number one lesson that should be taught about cosmetic surgery and that many people ignore: Never go too far, too fast. If you make some subtle changes, you will improve what you’ve got.

  1. Oh, Gosh! This is such a terrible story! Poor thing, she should get some professional help and by that I mean a shrink.

    Thanks for sharing the story, I hope to be a lesson to many women out there.


    1. I feel so sorry for her...She had all the potential to be someone really special and she destroyed her life due to alcohol and drug abuse...A shrink is extremely necessary for cases like hers...
      You are very welcome Petro! Hope she gets well someday...
      Many many hugs!

  2. I found her very beautiful with her original nose. After all, she appeared on Vogue covers! I found her nose complemented her face well & didn't appear terribly big at all. I feel very bad for how her life went, looks-wise and addiction-wise. I hope her nose gets the reconstruction it needs.
