Hi, Barbie! A new rhinoplasty trend is sweeping the nation: The Barbie nose.
Ever since the “Barbie” film released in late July, the “Barbification” of lifestyles and aesthetics has skyrocketed. Pink dominated the summer, and now, some are looking to replicate the slender nasal appearance associated with the iconic doll.
The Barbie nose entails a “delicate, narrow nose with an upturned tip along with a straight bridge,” says NewBeauty.
For some, Margot Robbie’s portrayal of Barbie represents the pinnacle of beauty, and it’s not at all surprising that many people want to mirror her look. But despite wanting the “Barbie” look, there are several factors you should consider before getting a rhinoplasty.
Although the Barbie nose is a growing trend, patients should still examine if the shape is right for them. Because a rhinoplasty is a permanent procedure, some critics suggest that patients should consider rhinoplasties that complement other facial features rather than aiming for a “celebrity nose” they may not end up liking.
While beauty is a personal journey, experts also point out the importance of realistic expectations when it comes to trends like the Barbie nose. Professional guidance should always be taken into account when considering a rhinoplasty, and some experts in the field suggest that a natural alteration looks better than an entire rework.
If you want a Barbie nose but you’re unsure about a surgical procedure, there are always other avenues to take when it comes to nose alterations. At Dr. J.J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, we offer non-surgical nose jobs in addition to surgical rhinoplasties.
