It's been nearly 15 years since she underwent a rhinoplasty but Ashley Tisdale still remembers very well how traumatizing the public reaction was at the time! In an interview with People in back in 2007, Tisdale revealed that she had discovered that her difficulty breathing was because her "septum was 80 percent deviated and that I had two small fractures on my nose". I literally nearly could not breathe out of the right side of my nose."Looking again on the self-described "very traumatic" ordeal, Ashley wrote that she by no means anticipated such intense public scrutiny. On the other hand, I have ZERO judgment towards anyone who makes any criticism; your body, your choice".
Tisdale, who is pregnant with her first child with husband Christopher French, wants a better experience for her daughter.
'I'm glad I have this platform where I can share my experiences and hope that you can learn something from them - including the negative aspects of plastic surgery'.

Upon her doctor's recommendation, she underwent rhinoplasty but it wasn't about "changing my appearance".
However plastic surgery was seen very differently by the public at that time, and she was shamed for her rhinoplasty. I made a decision that was nobody's business. When I did, they examined me, judged me, and made me feel ashamed of my decision. "It's taken years for me to process this experience - an experience that I didn't think was that big of a deal either", she said. It's not easy being vulnerable and I felt like that was taken advantage of during this interview.
Back in 2007, she made her procedure public in order to try and stop the stigma surrounding plastic surgery, especially in cases where it's needed for health reasons.
Tisdale said that she has been very open about her "mental health, breast explant, and everything in between".
Tisdale was also motivated by her unborn daughter, with the Carol's Second Act star expressing her hope that her daughter's "choices aren't met with judgment or shame". "If only other women could approach this subject the same way, we could probably feel less shame and a lot more love", she concluded.
