We often look to celebrities for inspiration when deciding what adjustments to make to our appearance. From body types to facial features, celebs are the icons of beauty and fame.
This is why we often have clients come in asking for specific requests, like “I want Angelina Jolie’s nose.” Because it’s easy to view these celebrities as having a perfect nose, it’s no wonder people want it.
But any top facial surgeon will tell you, the perfect nose for them, is not always the perfect nose for you.
Why you should be wary of the “Perfect Nose”
That perfect little button nose you see on your favourite celebrity looks so good because it suits their own features. When considering rhinoplasty, people have a tendency to focus in on the nose and ignore how it fits into the overall aesthetics of their face.
The nose is just one part of a larger picture. To be aesthetically pleasing it needs to perfectly suit your features and face. So while Jennifer Aniston’s nose may be perfect for her face, the identical nose could look out of place on you.
In addition to considering your individual appearance, your nose job needs to take aging into account. The best rhinoplasty surgeons focus on creating a nose that will age with your other features, ensuring you have a beautiful piece of work that you’ll stay happy with.
In short, your perfect nose isn’t the one you see on others, it’s the one that suits you.
Instead of trying to copy the celebrity nose jobs on Instagram and TV, stay true to your own unique look. The results are better and more beautiful.
What a Good Rhinoplasty Doctor Will Tell You
A good rhinoplasty doctor provides you with realistic expectations. That means, that right out of the gate they listen to your desires and help you understand what is and is not feasible based on your nose and facial structure.
The right rhinoplasty surgeon is honest about the results you can expect post-surgery. They can show you before and after pictures of similar patients. This can give you a good idea of the best nose job options for your face shape, features, and ethnicity.
While specific requests may not be viable for you, a good nose job doctor will have an open dialogue with you. They’ll listen to what it is you want, and if it is not possible (or not your best option), they will explain why and provide alternatives for you to consider.
This is a two-way conversation with the aim of ensuring every patient is safe and satisfied with their surgery.
In fact, the best surgeons may even refuse to perform a rhinoplasty if they believe the surgery is too risky. As well, they may refuse the surgery if they do not believe it will result in satisfactory results in the short or long term.
For instance, if “nose shrinkage” is a risk then there is a high risk of the patient becoming dissatisfied with their nose in a few years. The top facial plastic surgeons aim for results that keep patients happy for years to come.
