Will Tara get her new nose in time for the Royal Wedding?

By Daily Mail Reporter

Flattened: Tara Palmer-Tomkinson's ravaged features last week

With less than three weeks to go before the big day, it looks as though Tara Palmer-Tomkinson will have her work cut out to achieve the wedding look she craves.

The 39-year-old socialite said in February that she hoped to have a new nose in time for the ceremony.

But pictures taken last week show the nose, ravaged by years of drug abuse, has yet to be reconstructed.

It looked hopelessly squashed, drawing unflattering comparisons to a boxer who had taken a beating in the ring.

The damage is a legacy of Miss Palmer-Tomkinson’s former £400-a-day cocaine habit.
It was so bad that in 2006 she had a £6,000 operation to rebuild the area between her nostrils.

Since then her nose has bent to the right and she is still hoping to make it straight before the ceremony on April 29 at Westminster Abbey.

She revealed the Daily Mail in February: ‘If I can get my nose fixed for the wedding that would be ideal. I’m not sure it’s going to be possible but hopefully something can be done in time.’

Friends have said that she has become so self-conscious about the problem that she has taken to wearing a hat and glasses when she goes out.

Miss Palmer-Tomkinson has said: ‘I’m so paranoid about it. All I can think about is I just can’t wait to have it done. It’s something I’ve always wanted to have done but it needs a recovery time.

‘My surgeon died so I still need to find someone to do it. It’s a straight nose but it’s just got a bump in it. I’m nearly 40 years old now and I want to get it right.

‘I am not saying I’m an oil painting but of course I want to have it fixed. I don’t want to be picked on. I read somewhere last week someone said they want to vomit when they saw it.’
