JAMES ‘Arg’ Argent has showed off the results of his nose job with before and after snaps.
The Towie star took to Instagram to give fans a look at his new nose and thanked his surgeon for improving his “overall confidence and self-esteem”.
The 29-year-old exclusively told The Sun Online that he decided to go under the knife after his dramatic four stone has left him feeling like his nose was “too big.”
James said that since losing weight during his 10-week stint in Thai rehab this year, his nose looks more “prominent”, and has left him particularly self-conscious about a bump and large nostrils.
Arg, 29, said: “At school my nickname was always ‘Nostrils’ because my nostrils are huge – I’ve literally never seen anyone with bigger nostrils than me!
“I’ve always known I’ve had a big nose, but where I’ve been so up and down with my weight for so many years, my nose didn’t stand out as much, but now I’ve lost four stone my features show a lot more and I’ve got this large bump and nostrils that are even more prominent.”
He captioned the transformation snap: “I’ve recently had rhinoplasty with the incredible @drfrati to reduce the size of my nose & nostrils.
“The swellings going down & I couldn’t be happier with the results. This is something that I’ve considered for a long time, especially after losing a lot of weight where my features stood out more. “@drfrati made me feel completely at ease throughout the whole process. His knowledge, experience & professionalism has enabled me to have the nose I wanted. Its subtle, hasn’t changed my face & very natural.
“It’s definitely another step in improving my overall confidence, self-esteem & I couldn’t be happier! X”.
Arg said he hoped the surgery would make him “better looking and more attractive” after losing weight.
“I want to feel better when I take selfies as there are some I don’t upload because I’m unhappy with my nose, and yeah of course it would be great if it helped meet more women too,” he said.
“I spent three months doing Celebs Go Dating and my confidence with women is really improving, so if I can change this part of me that I don’t feel confident about I think that will make dating a lot easier.
He added: “I’m so proud of the weight I’ve lost and I’ve got a bit more to go and some toning up to do, but I’ve completely turned my life around this year, and I feel this will just help to complete the better version of me.”
