Priyanka got candid about her nose surgery and shared interesting details about the same as she mentioned that at the time she felt that polypectomy was a pretty routine procedure, and added that, unfortunately for her, it didn't go as planned.
She revealed that when the bandages were removed after the surgery, she and her mom, Madhu Chopra were horrified. Recalling the incident in her book, Priyanka wrote, "I was having trouble breathing. This is a problem someone with asthma can't ignore. I ended up seeing a doctor recommended by a family friend, who discovered a polyp in my nasal cavity that would need to be surgically removed. While shaving off the polyp, the doctor also accidentally shaved the bridge of my nose and the bridge collapsed. When it was time to remove the bandages and the condition of my nose was revealed, Mom and I were horrified. My original nose was gone. My face looked completely different. I wasn't me anymore."
Clearly, the 40-year-old actress admitted that she was devastated and heartbroken after the surgery and revealed that every time she looked at herself in the mirror, it looked like she was gazing at someone else.
She explained, "Every time I looked in the mirror, a stranger looked back at me, and I didn't think my sense of self or my self-esteem would ever recover from the blow. Let's just call it out right now. I remember the media giving me the nickname 'Plastic Chopra' after my surgery.”
Priyanka later opted for corrective surgeries to fix the damage that was done during the polypectomy. She added, "Every time I looked in the mirror, a stranger looked back at me, and I didn't think my sense of self or my self-esteem would ever recover from the blow. Let's just call it out right now. I remember the media giving me the nickname 'Plastic Chopra' after my surgery. Immediately the name started to show up in articles and newspaper items and it has followed me my entire professional life."
