The days of being embarrassed about or hiding cosmetic procedures are almost completely behind us. More and more women and men are turning to cosmetic surgery to look and feel their best, and they aren’t ashamed of it anymore.
How do we know?
There’s no more sneaking around or trying to keep everything under wraps. Even celebrities are spilling the beans about procedures they had done years ago in order to help open up a dialogue and empower other people to live their lives the way they want with no reservations or shame.
The latest celebrity to open up about their nose job is Tyra Banks. She was recently quoted saying women should be able to fix or flaunt their looks, whichever they choose. She admitted to having a nose job early in her career and voiced her opinion that she had a responsibility to be open and honest about it now so men and women could continue to have open and honest conversations about appearances.
In her memoir “Unbreak My Heart,” Toni Braxton revealed that as soon as she signed her first solo record deal she began the process of undergoing a rhinoplasty, or nose job. She described always being unhappy with and wanting to change her nose. She went on to admit she had a breast augmentation and expressed the desire to have liposuction on her inner thighs.
Many other celebrities have admitted to having nose jobs over the years, including several reality show, television and movie stars.
Selfies and Nose Jobs
A new zest for nose jobs in the world of cosmetic procedures is thanks in part to our present selfie obsession. Research shows that selfies can distort our facial features and make our nose appear 30 percent larger than it really is. It’s not just nose jobs either; selfies have been driving cosmetic procedures for the last few years, with 55 percent of plastic surgery patients in 2017 reporting their inspiration for undergoing surgery was for better selfies.
