Ashley Tisdale can finally exhale. And not just because she's officially signed herself up for High School Musical 3.
The young actress and singer got a nose job on Friday, a procedure that she was less than enthused to undergo.
"Growing up I always knew I had a deviated septum on the right side of my nose, which caused trouble breathing," Ashley Tisdale told People. "The older I got, the worse it got. I went to get it checked out, and the doctor told me the septum was 80 percent deviated and that I had two small fractures on my nose."
As a result of the operation, Ashley isn't feeling her best. Let's hope boyfriend Jared Murillo is bringing her a lot of chicken soup.
"I'm not feeling great today. It's uncomfortable and I hope this is the only time I ever have to go through something like this."
Tisdale's mother, Lisa, was by her side during the five-hour procedure. Still, Tisdale says, every step of the way "I was completely scared. I wasn't looking forward to the surgery at all. I actually had trouble sleeping for a week before."
The cute and talented Ashley Tisdale was also quick to point out that she doesn't advocate plastic surgery for vanity's sake:
"I didn't do this because I believe in plastic surgery. I did this to help my health. I literally almost could not breathe out of the right side of my nose. I want my fans to know the truth. I'm not someone who is going to act like I had nothing done. I just want to be honest because my fans are everything to me."
