“Rhino-popularity” is a recently coined term that describes the resurgence of interest in rhinoplasty or a “nose job.”
In 2012, rhinoplasty was the number one surgery performed on patients under 35.
It was also the most in-demand surgery among men.
Overall, nose surgery was the third most requested procedure, following facelifts and eyelid surgery.
Why all of the recent interest? The nose is the first feature you notice on a person. Any enhancements to the nose can impact overall harmony and balance of your face.
According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 500,000 people seek consultation to enhance the appearance of their nose every year.
This growing number can be attributed to an overall dissatisfaction with the form or function of the nose.
Some patients are unhappy with the nose they were born with or the way their nose has changed with age.
For others, nose reconstructive surgery can correct a distorted nose due to injury or improve breathing.
