There are some celebrities whose decision to undergo rhinoplasty is either so obvious it warrants discussion, or the famous person has no qualms speaking to the public about their private life.
Either way, it is obvious that this surgery is commonly performed among the Hollywood crowd. But why is the nose job a rite of passage in the entertainment industry?
Celebrities vs. Average Americans
Though no single human being is perfect, we often look to celebrities for advice about our appearances or how to act. After all, they made millions so why not attempt to emulate their ways?
The formula for success is far more complicated than what we are fed through the media, though celebrity endorsements, success stories, and other cultural representations of ideals give the general public inclinations on whom to seek advice from.
Until recently, the American public never stopped to question why famous people seemed to be so far ahead of the rest of us. In Hollywood life, new mothers lose their baby weight at record speeds, they seem physically fit during winter months, and peoples’ full time jobs don’t interfere with their ability to look great. This may be primarily because it is a star’s full time job to look great.
Why Nose Jobs?
Celebrities who have had rhinoplasty mimic the American public in their fondness for the surgery, or perhaps it is the other way around. While focusing on a person on-camera, a large or uniquely shaped nose can become a distraction and detract from the artistic endeavors of the person’s work.
In addition to this notion, professional photograph re-touchers face less work when a person has already permanently modified their nose through rhinoplasty.
Nose surgery is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries offered around the world because it proves to be one of the most transformative. In certain cases, the rhinoplasty has proved to be too extreme and did not garner public approval (think Jennifer Grey); in others, it helped launch successful careers (think stars like Ashlee Simpson).
The Proof is in the Pictures
While many famous folks refuse to discuss their plastic surgery experiences, the well-trained eye of facial plastic surgeons can determine who has probably undergone discreet changes. Celebrities such as Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson, and Jennifer Anniston all appear to have had minor rhinoplasty procedures performed to refine the looks of their original noses.
