Kate Middleton’s nose (the most requested plastic surgery procedure in the UK last year) said the Guardian.
Kate Middleton’s “near perfect” and petite nose have tripled since 2011, according to the Daily Mail, which has interviewed several women who said having a similar eye-catching royal profile was exactly the look they sought as they underwent rhinoplasty.
“Her nose is straight with a cute, rounded tip and is perfectly in proportion to her face,” plastic surgeon Maurizio Persico said. “This gives Kate an attractive and striking profile.”
“Plus, she always looks happy and confident in photos, which is especially appealing to women whose own appearance makes them unhappy – those who feel self-conscious about larger or crooked noses, which they believe dominate their faces,” Persico added.
According to psychologist Carmen Lefevre, who studies facial attributes and behavior at the University of St. Andrews, it’s not just because Kate’s a princess that her nose inspires envy.
“The symmetry of Kate’s nose, the angle between her lip and the tip of her nose and the minimal amount of nostril on show, are all near-perfect,” Lefevre told the paper.
One woman, 21-year-old Jessica Blaier, was even interviewed on Good Morning America about her reasons for wanting the Kate Middleton’s nose. The young lady stated that Middleton’s nose is petite and turns up slightly at the end, while Blaier always felt that her own nose was too large, and turned down too much when she smiled.
PRweb published an article where Dr. Mark Deutsch, a plastic surgeon in Atlanta, was interviewed Thursday about the increasing amount of women in the United Kingdom and in the United States that are getting nose jobs to have their noses look like Kate Middleton’s. When asked what his thoughts were on the trend, the surgeon said: “It’s not really that surprising; Kate Middleton has a very feminine nose that perfectly suites her face, and the procedure in general is a popular one because people are very commonly unsatisfied with the appearance of their noses.” Deutsch went on to say that having a specific shape of nose in mind is “like bringing a picture with you when you get your hair cut. Patients don’t always know how to describe what they want; it’s just easier that way.”
