In the 1990s, Ben Savage rose to popular portraying Cory Matthews on the ABC series “Boy Meets World.” Like most child stars, Savage faded from the spotlight after the series came to an end in 2000. He did a few films, television appearances and acted in a couple of plays, but he wasn’t seen on a regular basis until just recently.
Over a decade later, the series has been revived with the sequel “Girl Meets World” which now airs on the Disney Channel. Savage has returned to portray Cory Matthews, but things are different this time around. He’s older, wiser and he looks significantly different than in his “Boy Meet World” days.
DID BEN SAVAGE GET A NOSE JOB?
Something’s up with Ben Savage’s nose! It appears sharper and pointier than the bulbous, rounded nose we remember from “Boy Meets World.”
Features can certainly change as people age, but that doesn’t appear to be the case here. We watched Ben Savage grow up on screen. The series ended when he was almost 20, and thus when he was already through puberty. Now at age 33, Savage’s nose narrower than it did at age 20. And strangely, everything else we remember about Cory Matthew’s cute little face seems to look exactly the same.
BEN SAVAGE NOSE JOB RUMOR
Savage has not confirmed whether or not he has gone under the knife, but rhinoplastry seems to be the only likely explanation for such a significant difference in the shape of his nose. Rhinoplasty is a common plastic surgery procedure used to correct or reconstruct the nose. Often referred to as “nose reshaping,” it is performed to improve the general appearance of the nose or to correct breathing issues.
Unlike breast implants or tummy tucks, nose jobs are significantly harder to hide because they can’t simply be covered up with clothing. Recovery time is about a week long and bruising can last for days or weeks after. That’s quite a long time for any celebrity to successfully keep away from the paparazzi, but since Ben Savage wasn’t working regularly for quite some time, he may have had time to undergo rhinoplasty and successfully recover from the procedure without anyone noticing.
