If you have ever searched for photos of celebrities before and after plastic surgery, you have likely noticed just how many actors, musicians, and socialites have had a rhinoplasty or “nose job.” At our Chicago plastic surgery practice, rhinoplasty is consistently among the most popular and most-requested procedures for both men and women. It’s a transformative procedure that creates big improvements with just small adjustments, so it is no surprise the procedure is just as popular in Hollywood as it is across the U.S.
Why is the surgery especially popular with the stars? In this blog post, we’ll discuss why so many celebrities have had nose surgery and explain why replicating a certain celebrity’s nose will not always give you the look you really want.
Why are nose jobs so popular with celebrities?
The nose is the central focal point of the face. Along with the eyes and lips, it is one of the most defining facial features that makes us look the way we do. For people whose careers center around being on camera, it makes sense to strive for an attractive, proportional nose that flatters the rest of their features.
Rhinoplasty is also highly customizable, meaning it offers solutions for people with all kinds of concerns, both medical and cosmetic. The surgery makes many different improvements, including:
- Narrowing a wide bridge
- Refining the shape of the tip
- Smoothing bumps or indentations
- Reshaping large, wide, or upturned nostrils
- Decreasing the overall size of the nose
Which of these adjustments your surgeon makes depends entirely on your unique anatomy and goals for your appearance. Through these small, customized adjustments, celebrities are able to achieve a unique, stylized nose without making dramatic changes to the way they look.
Can I copy a certain celebrity’s rhinoplasty?
The beauty of rhinoplasty is that it is tailored to each individual. It works best when painstakingly designed and customized to suit your unique nose. Recreating a celebrity’s nose or striving for a one-size-fits-all “cookie-cutter” nose job typically will not create your best possible results. That nose might look attractive on its own or on someone else, but your nose needs to make sense within the context of your face.
Arguably the most attractive celebrity noses aren’t the ones that have been obviously sculpted into a completely new shape, but the ones that look natural and harmonize well with that person’s features. The most “sought after” celebrity noses don’t all look the same, as you can see in this New Beauty article. Each one is stylized and complements that person’s overall look.
What makes a great rhinoplasty?
An expertly performed rhinoplasty is what we call “transparent.” It improves your overall appearance without obviously signaling that you’ve had a procedure done. A great nose job maintains your unique aesthetic character, so you still look like “you,” just a more refined and elevated version of you. This requires a fully individualized approach and thorough communication between you and your surgeon, starting at your initial consultation.
At TLKM Plastic Surgery, our rhinoplasty consultations include VECTRA® 3-D imaging along with an in-depth assessment and conversation about your ideal look. We use this information to formulate a fully customized treatment plan that we execute with practiced precision to create exactly the look you’ve envisioned.
