If Kyle Richards has looked a bit different to you lately, rest assured that your eyes are not deceiving you. On October 30, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom confirmed that she recently had some work done on her face.
“Since so many of you were speculating what I did or did not do to my face… here is your answer. I fixed my nose,” she shared on Instagram Stories. "I broke it last September and the bone poking out bothered me. So I fixed the bone, fixed my breathing problems and refined the tip," she explained.
Soon after revealing the news, Kyle returned to IG to share a full look at her transformation, including before-and-after pics. In a series of snaps, Kyle showed a close-up peek at the bone that was poking out of her nose before the surgery as well as what her nose looked like post-surgery, bruises and all.
Kyle's procedure was performed by Dr. Vladimir Grigoryants in California. "I have minor bruising (12 days post op). And @drvladimirgrigoryants doesn't 'pack the nose' so I had 2 small splints which made it so much easier," she captioned one of the images. "I can breathe so well now it is a serious game changer for sleeping."
Even with the bruising, Kyle said that the healing process "was not painful." She shared, "I was low key enjoying the downtime and watching movies which I never do. 5 says I stayed home."
Kyle also shared images of her nose 10 days post-op and revealed that she wasn't the only one pleased with her outcome so far. "My husband [Mauricio Umansky] was nervous about me not looking like myself and even he is happy with the result."
Still, it will be quite some time before Kyle's nose is completely healed. She explained that her nose will be swollen "for a while" and that she won't see the final result for a year.
