Dancing With the Stars fans are used to the show’s participants showing off their legs, but last night on Extra, Karina Smirnoff showed off her nose. Last week, the dancer went under the knife for rhinoplasty surgery with renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Nikolov, and Extra was there to cover every minute of it. The operation was to repair a deviated septum and damage from having broken her nose.
On the Extra set, Karina said, “I feel great! It’s the best thing I have ever done.” As for her recovery, she said, “It doesn’t hurt anymore. There’s no swelling or bruising, but it’s a little numb.” But will her family recognize her at Thanksgiving dinner? “It kind of still looks a little bit like me,” said the star, “but the better, upgraded version.”
