I have been reading all I can about Elvis, looking at all the picture books I can, and surfing the internet for info.

Why is it that in so many different pictures of Elvis that I see, he seems to have different noses?

I know that one of you said that he had had minor nose surgery. Why would he do that he had the most beautiful nose! But I have noticed that on many websites, he seems to have more than two different noses!
For instance take a look at the picture that Elsa Marina has on her avatar. If you look closely, it is much bigger than Elvis' nose, even has a bump on it. That doesn't look like Elvis' nose early or later to me. No one would have their nose changed to look bigger with a bump on it!

Also, I have noticed in some pictures where he was in his early days, supposedly the "old" nose, the old nose is much wider and bigger than it actually was in pictures in books I've seen.

I think people are messing with Elvis' nose with photoshop or something.

Am I paranoid and crazy, or what?

Minor nose surgery was for a deviated septum. (if I recall-don't quote me on it-it's foggy) to help him breath better when he slept. But they can change the look at that time too, but also if they change it to help the breathing maybe that made it look a bit different.

I noticed on the New Viva Las Vegas, that just for a split second, in one scene, when Elvis turned, his nose looked VERY large. I think Rickie may be onto something. I think people may be doing something with their computers.

I noticed on one website, I saw an old photo of Elvis that I am familiar with. But in this one it was covered with acne, where it never was before.

Also on one of my other favorite actors, I saw the same thing done with his picture.

I think this may be a new thing that people will "zing" an actor they don't like or just for mischief by uglying up the actors picture in a subtle way.

I was just looking at the back of the "This is Elvis" album. There are pictures on the back of the album of Elvis with a HUGE nose. Elvis nose never looked like that!!!

TCB, when you saw Elvis in person, did he ever have a nose that was BIGGER?

I know in the films of him singing for the last couple of times ever, he seems to have his own perfect nose. In his casket, his nose seems to be concave, like his mothers.

What is going on? I think that since people are constantly knocking Elvis, and lying about him, now some nasty people have computers and Rickie is right, they ARE changing Elvis' appearance with photoshop.

Better hang on to your old accurate pictures of Elvis, because in the future, just like his reputation, they will try to take his good looks away from him.

Lee, I never saw ELVIS in person until 1970. His nose in person was absolute GORGEOUS!!! I have never seen a more handsome male nose. I have no idea if people are screwing around with photoshop, or not, but in the early years 50's and 60's ELVIS' nose was just ever so slightly wider, and the tip nice, but not quite as perfect.
If you are seeing pictures after say about 1969 and the nose looks wider (bigger)...then possibly people are using photoshop.
I belive whenever his deviated septum was worked on ...his nose was narrowed just a bit... and the tip refined. Perfection of perfection!

Of all the things Elvis ever did, that would have to be the dumbest. I'm sorry. You can't improve on perfection. His nose was so beautiful, the greek god statues were repaired using his face for a model!!! Another famour actor, I forget his name, was said to have gone to his plastic surgeon and asked for Elvis Presley's nose! I know the new nose was cute, and his face was still handsome, but it was not Elvis Presley's face!! What could EVER have possessed him to do such a thing! I cried when I realized it!! Someone said that he was still handsome, but he had lost that sensual look he had when he was younger. I agreed, but couldn't put my finger on it! Now I realize that he different "look" probably came when he changed his nose! The nose and mouth sort of went together to creat that sexy crooked smile, and the pouty look to the mouth! I am so mad and disapointed at Elvis for that!

But the new, straight and handsome nose is not the one I am talking about. I am talking about the BIG nose that people are pasting on his pictures. Look around. You will see what I am talking about. Sometimes it's oh old pictures, sometimes it's on later ones.

I think they are fooling with his chin, tool.

ELVIS was beautiful, period. I agree. I have no way in the world to know for sure that ELVIS had plastic surgery on his nose. What I am saying to you is that if MsMolly says he went in for a deviated septum (and this seems to have been talked about within the family)...then that is why I see the refinement of his nose in the late 60's... it is my humble opinion...and it is truly a silly ol' humble opinon...ELVIS' nose looks a little prettier than it once did to my eyes. If he told the surgeon to fix it a bit....it most likely was because ELVIS was unhappy with it, or out of insecurity as those are the reasons for most plastic surgery.

I could never be mad at ELVIS for anything he did. I really loved the total guy. I just loved him no matter. He actually looked more handsome to me...but I loved him without the little bit of change, also.:)

How could he ever think he was not physically perfect? What was wrong with him that he was insecure about the face that MILLIONS of women loved and millions of men were jealous of??

Anyway, have you noticed any of the big noses? Do you think I'm right that people have been fooling around?

It's not the first time I've been mad at Elvis. I was also mad when he came home from the army a completely different person(although I still loved him,) mad because he let them stick him in all those bad movies, and mad that he cut off his sideburns.
Elvis should have had me around to tell him what to do!

Aron, there is no way something like that could happen by accident. Just like the people who tell lies about him, the people who are doing it are doing it deliberately.
Just as they want the public to think he was bad, they would also like the new generations to think that he was ugly.

lol.... Lee *smiles* People may say many unsavory things about Elvis (we cant stop that) but it is up to each person to decipher what is is and what is not true and furthermore as for "they" wanting new generations to think Elvis was ugly...Hmmm well I must say the proof is in the pudding mate...Elvis was quite clearly the most gorgeous man to ever walk this earth. End of story!*Smiles*
