Ever wonder which noses are most frequently referenced in a plastic surgeon’s office?
Every plastic surgeon will agree that the nose is a crucial piece of the proper-facial-proportion puzzle. Not only can a well-shaped nose really keep the shape of the face in balance while not distracting from other features, but anyone born with a nose they wish they could tweak knows how it can really affect self-esteem, too.
However, Kirkland, WA facial plastic surgeon Daniel J. Liebertz, MD reminds us that the “perfect nose” is a fluid definition. “It depends upon a person’s facial size, structure, and balance—however, there are general principles that follow.”
“When considering a change to one of the most prominent features of the face, it is important that the nose be modified to fit the dimensions of the face,” adds Scottsdale, AZ facial plastic surgeon Kelly V. Bomer, MD. “It is unwise to try to put a nose from another face onto someone else because it will most likely not work out well.”
If you’re considering a rhinoplasty, be sure you only trust your face to a board-certified plastic surgeon or facial plastic surgeon and always communicate your expectations for the most realistic outcome. Need some inspiration? Take a look at these most sought-after celebrity noses.
