Getting real. Lauren Sorrentino (née Pesce) revealed she got a nose job in July 2018 — a few months before she got married to her husband, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. “As some of you may know, I got my nose job before my wedding — it was exactly a year ago today, so I felt now is the perfect time to share some info,” she captioned several photos of herself before and after the surgery on Saturday, July 27. “Growing up my nose was one of my biggest insecurities. I just wasn’t happy with it, simple as that. Once Mike and I began the wedding planning process, I thought of every single detail, especially how we both would look in our wedding photos that we’d share and cherish forever, and the thought of the profile shots just didn’t sit well with what I was envisioning.”

The 34-year-old added, “After A LOT of thought and research, I finally committed to something I’ve wanted since I was 15 and booked my surgery with @tutelaps. My main concern was that I wanted to still look like myself, just a slightly improved version!”

Lauren also encouraged fans to look at the before and after photos. “As you swipe through the photos, you see my nose now and some of me during the recovery process,” she wrote. “Mike and I stayed at The Plaza [hotel] for a few days after my surgery. Never thought I’d enjoy the recovery process so much.”

💜 As some of you may know, I got my nose done before my wedding – it was exactly a year ago today so I felt now is the perfect time to share some info. Growing up my nose was one of my biggest insecurities. I just wasn’t happy with it, simple as that. Once Mike and I began the wedding planning process I thought of every single detail, especially how we both would look in our wedding photos that we’d share and cherish forever & the thought of the profile shots just didn’t sit well with what I was envisioning 🤷🏼‍♀️ After A LOT of thought and research, I finally committed to something I’ve wanted since I was 15 & booked my surgery with @tutelaps My main concern was that I wanted to still look like myself, just a slightly improved version! If you’re going for that natural look, Dr. Tutela is your surgeon! As you swipe through the photos you see my nose now and some of me during the recovery process. Mike and I stayed at The Plaza for a few days after my surgery, never thought I’d enjoy the recovery process so much 😂 The purpose of this post is to be open and honest about facial plastic surgery while so many aren’t. We’ve come to a point where it seems acceptable to talk about boob jobs but when it comes to facial, it’s still taboo – even in 2019! I absolutely love my results and by sharing my experience & Dr. I’m hoping to help break the stigma and be a resource to those of you interested! Please comment below ANY questions regarding the subject! Dr. Tutela and I will answer your questions in a YouTube video we will be filming next week. Thank you all for listening and give Dr. Tutela a follow, he’s AMAZING 💜 @tutelaps @botoxboss

The blonde beauty continued the lengthy message by explaining why she decided to speak about the procedure now. “The purpose of this post is to be open and honest about facial plastic surgery while so many aren’t,” she explained. “We’ve come to a point where it seems acceptable to talk about boob jobs, but when it comes to facial, it’s still taboo — even in 2019! I absolutely love my results and by sharing my experience and doctor, I’m hoping to help break the stigma and be a resource to those of you interested!”

At the end of the post, the New Jersey native wrote that she wanted to interact with her fans about the process if they had any concerns, since she will be answering questions in an upcoming YouTube video with her doctor. “Please comment below ANY questions regarding the subject!” she said.

Mike and Lauren got married at the Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, on November 1, 2018. Since then, the Jersey Shore star went to jail and is currently serving an eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution in New York.

However, it seems like Mike will be getting out of prison “any day now,” Dan Wise, a federal prison consult, told the Asbury Park Press on July 22. The New York native will most likely be released into a halfway house “which is no picnic,” Dan added.

But all of his friends and family are staying positive during this tough time including his wife — she even shared a playful Instagram post about her husband’s impeding prison release. “Waiting for my husband to get out like,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing a black dress with her up in a topknot on July 22.

We love your candidness, Lauren! Way to be real with your followers.
