Women going under the knife for Duchess Kate's nose

Since the royal wedding, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, has captured the world’s attention with her enviable wardrobe, gorgeous hair and striking figure. While women have copied her style and imitated her hair, Kate’s nose is at the top of their wish list.

British plastic surgeons say requests for her "near perfect" and petite nose have tripled since 2011.

The UK’s Daily Mail interviewed several women who said Kate’s royal profile was exactly what they were looking for when they underwent rhinoplasty.

“Her nose is straight with a cute, rounded tip and is perfectly in proportion to her face," plastic surgeon Maurizio Persico said.

"This gives Kate an attractive and striking profile.

"Plus, she always looks happy and confident in photos, which is especially appealing to women whose own appearance makes them unhappy – those who feel self-conscious about larger or crooked noses, which they believe dominate their faces.”

Psychologist Carmen Lefevre, who studies facial attributes and behaviour at the University of St Andrews, says Kate’s nose is the perfect choice.

“The symmetry of Kate's nose, the angle between her lip and the tip of her nose and the minimal amount of nostril on show, are all near-perfect,” she said.
