Designer Noses: Make Mine Like…

The popularity of celebrity is nothing new. Fashion and beauty trends are in the business of capitalizing on popular culture. Americans are no less susceptible to this pattern of influence. The Kate Middleton nose is now tops on the list of most wanted look-a-likes.

According to Professor of Psychology at New York University, Denis Pelli, media and pop culture can change how the world perceives beauty. “We think of beauty as fixed to an image, universally, for all time. But when Kate Middleton became a royal princess, this enhanced her visibility and, in turn, changed our notions of beauty, that now other women now want to look like her.”

The popularity of celebrity is nothing new.   Fashion and beauty trends fuel the business of capitalizing on popular culture.   Americans are no less susceptible to this pattern of idol worship.

I agree, because during initial consultations, patients often bring in a celebrity photo to show me what they want to look like after cosmetic surgery.   While many aspects of cosmetic surgery rely on proportion, bone structure and symmetry of the patient, having a photo is useful for me to understand a patient’s expectations.
