Two little words, “I do,” launched Kate Middleton into the limelight faster than anyone in modern memory. Since wedding Prince Harry in 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge has become a household name, gracing supermarket tabloids across the world, with everything from her fashion sense to her baby bump becoming worldwide news.
Some women are looking to claim a little piece of Kate Middleton for themselves. Namely, her nose.
Royal Rhinoplasty is all the rage
That is to say, they want plastic surgery to make their noses look more like that of the Duchess’. Demand for the procedure began in the U.K. (the most requested celebrity celebrity facial feature last year), but according to some New York plastic surgeons, that demand has crossed the pond and overtaken their patients.
Dubbed the “royal rhinoplasty,” a Kate Middleton nose job can run upwards of $12,000. According to interested patients, the appeal of Middleton’s sniffer is it’s “natural” appearance.
“It’s just this cute, little perky nose,” hopeful client Johanna Ricardi told the New York Daily News. “It’s not too big. It’s not too small. It will pretty much suit any type of face.”
There’s nothing wrong with admiring Middleton’s nose, but if you’re thinking about reshaping your own schnoz, it may be best to think less about someone else’s nose and more about what’s best for your own. We all have different faces, of all sorts of sizes and shapes. What works for Kate Middleton might not work for you, and when undergoing cosmetic surgery, what really matters is what works for you. Be sure to discuss what’s best for you and your nose with your plastic surgeon when you drop in for your consultation.
