The New Nose: Is the Bump Back?

Dr. Melissa Doft, a plastic surgeon in New York, noted that many patients seeking nose jobs don’t want to lose their ethnicity. “Our grandparents’ generation wanted to assimilate as quickly as possible, but the next generation is proud of their heritage,” Dr. Doft said.

Dr. Doft has also noted a recent uptick in patients who had reduction rhinoplasties years ago and now want to correct the “sharp angles which we used to think were beautiful but have aged the patient.” She cited a study recently published in the Aesthetic Medical Journal that used computer software to demonstrate that a well-done rhinoplasty could make a patient look three years younger.
