“Rhino-popularity”—a newly coined term—describes the recent resurgence in interest in nose jobs or rhinoplasty. Ranked as the third most requested procedure in 2012 by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), rhinoplasty currently only lags behind facelifts and eyelid surgery in demand. Not to mention, it is the number one most requested facial plastic surgery among men and the most popular surgical procedure for both men and women under age 35. But why the uptick in nose jobs? Since the nose occupies a central position on the face, it has a great impact on appearance. Even a minor correction can make a huge improvement in facial harmony. Just ask the 500,000 people who had rhinoplasty consultations last year.
