Not only does Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge – also known as Kate Middleton – have the most enviable closet in England, but she is also the fortunate owner of the country’s most coveted nose. In the nearly two years that the royal couple has been married, Britain’s women have tripled their number of requests for the Duchess’s dainty feature. And the English are not alone: Kate’s small, straight and rounded nose, which is perfectly proportioned to her face, is also a hot commodity across the pond. While women seeking a nose job NYC may not all request a “Duchess of Cambridge,” they do seek Manhattan nose reshaping that has similarly aristocratic results.
According to top cosmetic surgeons, the requests for Kate’s nose are not surprising. To start, the basic shape – straight and small, with no bump and a rounded tip – is close to many women’s ideal. The symmetry of her nose – the angle from the tip of her nose to her lip, and a minimal amount of nostril – is also nearly perfect. Added to that, the Duchess is an attractive woman who projects confidence.
For patients who are self-conscious about their nasal bump or a perceived large or crooked nose, Kate’s famous duo of striking beauty and unwavering confidence is very appealing. All in all, Duchess Kate’s symmetrical nose is so flawless that it serves as an excellent blueprint for many women, Brits and Americans alike, seeking to refine their most prominent facial feature.
For many patients, a nose job NYC is synonymous with perfection: a refined nose that is perfectly suited to your face. For some, this can mean Manhattan nose reshaping or tip refining; for others, a NYC rhinoplasty involves shaving a bump or repairing a deviated septum. Some of the most common complaints that can be improved by Manhattan plastic surgery include:
Every NYC rhinoplasty begins with your consultation with Dr. Loeb. During this first meeting, you’ll discuss your complaints and desired outcome of surgery. Dr. Loeb will decide on an approach, which generally involves incisions inside the nostrils (to reduce scarring) and the repositioning of nasal bones. To close, Dr. Loeb will use dissolvable stitches and insert nasal pads to reduce swelling and speed healing. Finally, a small nasal cast will cover your nose, helping preserve the reshaping.
Immediate recovery from a nose job is relatively fast – just a few hours in the recovery room, and you’ll be ready to go home. You’ll wear your nasal cast for about a week, during which time any swelling will go down. You should refrain from blowing your nose, stooping, and any rigorous activity, including exercise, for at least three weeks.
