Bristol Palin: 'Not plastic surgery, ... corrective jaw surgery'

bristol-palin-gma-before-after.jpgThere has been much speculation about Bristol Palin's "new" face, as the reality TV and "Dancing With the Stars" star fell off the radar a bit recently, only to reemerge in the public eye with a sharper jawline and pointier chin.

Plastic surgery? Or just weight loss? Zap2it made arguments for both.

But Palin has now told US Weekly that she did not have plastic surgery, she had "corrective jaw surgery."

"Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical my jaw and teeth could properly realign...I don't obsess over my face," the 20-year-old says of her procedure. "I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I look older, more mature, and don't have as much of a chubby little baby face!"
