Leighton Meester, star of the popular Gossip Girl TV series, is rumoured to have had a rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of her nose. The 24 year old is best known for her portrayal of Blair Waldorf in the popular TV show, but gained prior success as a singer, songwriter and fashion model. Surgeons have been speculating that the fashion conscious actress decided to have a nose job before her small screen debut. According to cosmetic surgery news site Make Me Heal, Miami plastic surgeon Dr Michael Salzhauer said: "It looks like Leighton Meester did have a rhinoplasty giving her a more defined tip and narrower bridge." Dr Paul S. Nassif agreed that it was possible she may have had work done. He explained: "Leighton Meester may have had rhinoplasty performed at one point. Her nose appears slightly smaller than it was in earlier photos. Overall, any work performed was conservative and she looks good." Leighton is not the only Gossip Girl to hit the headlines when it comes to cosmetic surgery related speculation, fellow actress Blake Lively has also been the subject of rumours. The star was said to have undergone a nose job that thinned down the bridge and defined the tip of her nose, but the rumours that she had work done before starting on Gossip Girl have not yet been substantiated. While the co-stars may have chosen similar cosmetic procedures, it has been reported that they are having trouble getting along during filming. According to the Enquirer: "Leighton thinks Blake is an egomaniac who views her time on the TV set as slumming. And Blake feels stifled. She�s just ignoring her co-star because she knows bigger things are in store."
