CAIRO - A lawmaker from Egypt's most conservative Islamist party resigned from parliament after he was caught lying to cover up a nose job, claiming the injuries to his heavily bandaged face were from a carjacking and beating. Parliament member Anwar al-Balkimy represented the Al-Nour party, whose members, known as Salafis, follow a strict interpretation of Islam that forbids cosmetic surgery as meddling in God's work. The party said Monday he had resigned; Al-Nour was forced to issue an embarrassing and apologetic statement.

Question: I have a 2-year-old daughter (almost 3). My mother lives several states away, but we Skype regularly; she rarely visits. She has always been very focused on looks - I grew up feeling unattractive - and now she has turned her attention to my daughter, saying things during our Skyping discussions like, "She's too fat. She needs to exercise every day. And she needs plastic surgery on her nose. " My daughter is an adorable and perfectly normal girl. I'm afraid she might start understanding these things soon.

Is it likely that Jerome R. Glazier wanted a nose job at age 64? Yes he did, an eight-member civil jury in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia declared yesterday. The jury rejected Glazier's claim that he never asked Dr. Julius "Dr. Nose" Newman, one of the areas' better-known plastic surgeons, to touch up his humped old schnozzle in 1992, while fixing Glazier's deviated septum. Nevertheless, the jury found the doctor liable for not telling Glazier of all the risks involved in the cosmetic part of the surgery, and awarded Glazier $32,500 to compensate him for the doctor's "wrongful conduct.

The woman was the kind who turned heads. Dr. Ferdinand A. Ofodile listened with disbelief as she explained who she was and why she had come to him. She was a professional model. She wanted a new nose. She'd brought along pictures of faces with noses she liked . . . white faces. "I could not believe it!" recalled the doctor, his eyes widening with the memory of his disbelief. "I asked her, 'But why? You're so . . . beautiful!' " The Nigerian-born New York City surgeon, who wears his own classically wide, flat, unreconstructed African schnoz proudly, was in Philadelphia yesterday to lecture colleagues from around the world on his increasingly popular specialty: African American nose jobs.

Julius Newman, 76, of Gladwyne, a cosmetic surgeon who sculpted more than 20,000 noses in his 37-year career, died Sunday at home of complications from primary progressive aphasia, a neurological disorder. In 1965, Dr. Newman presented a paper to the College of Physicians in Philadelphia titled "Rhinoplastic Surgery for the Twisted Nose," in which he outlined a new technique for nose surgery. Several years later, he established his cosmetic-surgery practice on City Avenue in Wynnewood.

THEY WERE TWO peas in a pod, those Khawam sisters, known simply as "the twins" at Lower Moreland High School back in the early '90s. Jill and Natalie Khawam, who moved to the school in their junior year and graduated in 1993, fancied tight jeans and flirting, recalled a former classmate, who spoke on condition that his name not be used. Still, even the babes had detractors (this was high school, don't forget) who made fun of their noses, according to the British Daily Mail website.

The FBI's plastic surgeon said former Spring Garden drug kingpin Richie Ramos definitely had a "nose job," but he came out looking not so good - sort of like Karl Malden or Porky Pig. Another doctor disagreed: Ramos had no nose job unless you consider too many punches to the beak to be a nose job. The government doctor said someone had tried to alter Ramos's appearance by ripping out pounds of fat from his tummy, fading old bullet scars on...

Richard Barone, an admitted South Philadelphia card shark, told the judge he "staged" an auto accident in 1986 to collect insurance, but denied his ex-girlfriend's charge that he forced her to play a role in the scam. "She was part of it," Barone said yesterday after pleading guilty to theft by deception and conspiracy before Common Pleas Judge Arthur S. Kafrissen. "We were a team," Barone said. "We robbed two casinos in Atlantic City together and we did the accident. " The judge yesterday placed Barone, 48, on five years' probation so he could enter the Federal Witness Protection Program for his cooperation in other cases.

After 15 seasons, the Boston Red Sox apparently will need a new leader. Jason Varitek has been absent for the first two days of workouts by pitchers and catchers. General manager Ben Cherington offered the soon-to-be 40-year-old captain a minor-league deal months ago, but the catcher never responded. Varitek has three options: He can take the minor-league deal; try to convince another team to give an aging backstop with declining skills a chance as a backup; or retire. It must be noted that Varitek's close friend and fellow veteran Tim Wakefield, retired last week.

QUICK, SOMEONE tell the Tampa Bay Rays that giveaway days are supposed to attract fans, not scare them away. On June 29, those who attend the Rays game against the visiting Tigers will receive something called a Zim Bear. As you can see by the photo, it's a terrifying hybrid between a teddy bear and 81-year-old Rays assistant coach Don Zimmer. If they give this thing out, they will need to make trauma counselors available in the concourse. Hell, it would even scare Pedro Martinez.

The Peyton Manning era resumed as expected on Sunday night in Denver, and he looked like the same guy that became a legend in Indianapolis. He was 19 of 26 for 245 yards and two touchdowns, and the Broncos beat Pittsburgh, 31-19. Mike Tomlin needed few words to describe the guy who ripped apart the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense in the Mile High City. "He's Peyton," the coach said with a shrug. Wearing orange for the first time since his playing days at Tennessee, the former Indianapolis Colts star wasn't about to let a 20-month layoff for neck surgery wreck his opening night debut.

METS PITCHER Jon Niese nose he looks different, and he's got former teammate Carlos Beltran to thank for it. The lefthander showed up for spring training yesterday sporting a new schnoz. Niese said he got the idea for a nose job from Beltran who - before being traded to the Giants last July - jokingly said, "We need to get you a new nose. " "He wanted me to have a new nose," Niese told reporters yesterday. "So he offered to pay for it. I was just like, 'All right.' Then it turned into seeing doctors and to getting it fixed.

A Center City physician, nearing 60, didn't like the slight tilt to the tip of his nose. A former Israeli combat soldier, now a nightclub manager in New York, felt his crooked nose eroded his confidence. A New Jersey teen, a star on the high school field hockey team, used to reach up, finger the bump on her bridge, and wonder if everyone was staring. And a Jamaican-born woman who loved her Caribbean features thought her nose was out of proportion to the rest of her face. Today, all four have new noses - symmetrical, straightened, smoothed-out, or cartilage-enhanced, reshaped at the tip or narrowed at the bridge.
