'Jersey Shore's' Deena Nicole Cortese: 'I have not got any plastic surgery'

deena-surgery-gi.jpgDespite rumors to the contrary, "Jersey Shore" star Deena Nicole Cortese (aka "Meatball No. 2") denies she's had any recent plastic surgery. Instead, she says she lost some weight and learned how to do her makeup.

The rumor hit warp speed thanks to some recent pictures showing Cortese with what appears to be a svelter, more skulpted face.

"just to let ya know..I have not got any plastic surgery," tweets Cortese. "yes in the past i have had a nose job..and i am not against plastic surgery at all..i have thought about getting it redone to round the tip but haven't yet..and don't know if I am."

"I am not afraid to ADMIT i got plastic surgery so if I do.. I'll let u know.. I thinned my eyebrows..and lost weight thanks to the @freshdiet .. and learned how to do my makeup..lighter eye shadow brings out my eyes..and highlight under my eyes gives an effect of higher cheek bones.. the end. If I get the nose job I'll let ya know =]"
