‘90 Day Fiancé’ Fans Divided — Natalie’s Nose Surgery for Breathing Problems or Nose Job?

Some 90 Day Fiancé fans are convinced that Natalie Mordovtseva’s nose surgery for breathing problems was actually a ploy for her to unsuspectedly get a cosmetic nose job, while other fans are convinced she’s telling the truth. Does it seem that audiences are divided on this question — medical procedure or cosmetic surgery?

Natalie kept surgery a secret from her husband Mike

Many fans have speculated in the past that the 90 Day Fiancé star had some plastic surgery done on her nose. On 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Season 6, the first time audiences hear about Natalie wanting a nose surgery done is when she’s confiding in her friend. The 90 Day Fiancé star explains that she has polyps in her nasal cavity, causing breathing problems. While at her friend’s house, she explains that she needs to break the news to Mike that she already scheduled her nose surgery and it’s next week.

At dinner, she tells Mike that she already scheduled the appointment. Mike is understandably upset because Natalie did all of that behind his back. Mike told Natalie that the issue isn’t the cost of the surgery, but it’s a matter of communication. While there were a few fights about the miscommunication and secretiveness on Natalie’s side, they could start planning for the surgery. On the July 9th episode, Mike and Natalie head to Seattle, Washington, to spend a night in a hotel ahead of Natalie’s nose surgery. Natalie and Mike end up fighting, and Natalie drives herself to the appointment alone.

Some fans are speculating that the surgery for breathing problems is actually a nose job

The whole situation seemed pretty suspicious to 90 Day Fiancé fans. One Reddit user, @OptimisticAsshole, posted a photo of Natalie with the caption, “I think Natalie is just getting a nose-job but trying to hide it from Michael.” Another user, @DareWright, posted a meme on Reddit joking about how fans think she’s lying about needing a nose job.

Another Reddit user posted their opinion on Natalie’s secret nose surgery, writing, “Why am I thinking that Natalie is getting a nose job…” The fan goes on to talk about how Natalie was acting after surgery, writing, “Yeah, yeah, liquid coming out, breathing difficulties… But she appears to have gotten a boob job and lip injections, and I’m thinking this surgery is more cosmetic than medically necessary.”

Is Natalie telling the truth about her surgery?

One Reddit user, @CuteMathilda, defended Natalie, saying, “Natalie didn’t have the nose job – she underwent a surgery for taking her maxillary sinuses out, all this ‘tragedy’ was for nothing and surgeries like this are covered by health insurance. That’s why she can feel smell after.” In the comments, another user — who had undergone a similar procedure — agreed, “I had a similar surgery 2 weeks ago and had to pay 4 grand out of pocket despite having my work’s most expensive insurance plan.”  

Another fan commented, “Yeah, where are all of the people who screamed two weeks ago that she was faking this to get a nose job? Her nose looks exactly the same and it was a medical procedure.” A fan pointed out some proof that Natalie didn’t have a nose job. They explained, “That bandage they showed her wearing was just nose drip/blood. No black eyes and soreness.” The official 90 Day Fiancé Twitter account posted a gif of Natalie right out of surgery, looking happy that she can breathe again.

There are still some fans who have some doubts about the validity of Natalie’s nose surgery being for health reasons, but there are many fans who have come to her defense. Natalie is on the mend now; meanwhile, the relationship between her and Mike is still as broken as ever.
