Laura Loomer, an ascendant Jewish figure of the far right, is reportedly getting a nose job next month — and her surgeon says he’s hoping to become the go-to face-lift doc for the so-called “alt-right.”
“I am so excited for my nose job!!” she wrote on Instragram. “How could anyone say no to this? It’s life changing.”
Loomer already had surgery on her lips — and posted a video of herself in the doctor’s chair.
If @drpober can accomplish this, I CAN’T WAIT to see what he’s going to do for my face when he performs my rhinoplasty. I am so excited for my nose job!! How could anyone say no to this? It’s life changing. ???? #rhinoplasty #nosejob #newyorkcity #uppereastside #DrRedPill #plasticsurgery http://www.DrJosephPober.com
Loomer’s doctor is Joseph Pober, a Manhattan surgeon who has sought to rebrand himself as a surgeon of choice for Trump supporters and members of the far right by dubbing himself “Dr. Redpill,” a play on a popular meme.
“I think having a beautiful nose for whatever reason is a fantastic thing,” Pober told BuzzFeed in a recent profile.
