Kate Middleton Nose Is A Rhinoplasty Rage
Americans have always has a nose for getting what they want. And it turns out that Americans want Kate Middleton.
Well, her nose anyway.
The New York Daily News reports a rising demand for rhinoplasty in the fashion of the royal's nose.
Middleton's nose is so coveted that New York plastic surgeons have compiled files of headshots of the Duchess of Cambridge for people in the market of a new nose to browse.
"I saw her nose a little while ago and now it is a huge thing for me, like an obsession and I just want to get it done," said Brianna Diaz, 26, to the Daily News. She is scheduled to have the surgery, which can cost up to $12,000, in a matter of weeks.
Americans spent $11 billion on cosmetic surgery last year, according to the Daily News, and savvy surgeons are taking steps to cash in on the Middleton trend.
"A couple of months ago, these women started coming into my office and asking for Kate Middleton's nose," says Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, a Manhattan plastic surgeon, according to the Daily News. "It has become so popular that we have made a file of a dozen Kate Middleton pictures to show patients when they come in for their consultation."
It seems desire for the royal treatment has surpassed the previous celebrity must-have nose belonging to Jennifer Aniston.
"When I saw Kate's nose, I just knew it was the perfect nose for me," said Jessica Blaier, 22, who had the surgery. "Other celebrities had parts of their noses that I wanted, but Kate's nose had it all. The bridge swoops. The tip doesn't fall when she smiles. And it's feminine."
