Rhinoplasty Statistics: Why More People Want to Have Nose Jobs
Rhinoplasty or “nose job” is one of the top five cosmetic procedures performed in the United States every year. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 252,261 rhinoplasty procedures were performed in 2010 and this figure is likely to increase this year. The likes of Blake Lively, Alicia Keys, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez have been rumored to have nose jobs early in their career.
Reasons for having a nose job
People often undergo rhinoplasty both for aesthetic and medical reasons. The nose is the center of a complex facial component. It lifts the visual focus to the eyes, projecting the character of the person. A straight and shapely nose is often associated with strong personality traits so many people desire to have a perfect nose. While some people have nose jobs to enhance their looks, others have it for medical reasons. Ashley Tisdale and Cameron Diaz both have nose jobs to repair their deviated sputum. Board certified surgeon Dr. Mark Pinsky often performs this procedure.
