Study Shows Increase in Rhinoplasty Popularity

By: Dr. Russell W. Kridel


Noted in the recently published “Rhino-popularity Report” by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), Rhinoplasty is the most popular surgical procedure for both men and women under the age of 35 and the number one most requested facial plastic surgery procedure overall among men. Over 500,000 people had consultations last year for Rhinoplasty surgery. The uptick in Rhinoplasty popularity, also commonly referred to as ‘nose job’ is testament to the positive impact the surgery can make on a person’s appearance. Even a minor correction can make a huge improvement in facial harmony and self-confidence. Since your nose is the first thing you notice every time you look in the mirror, it is not surprising that patients would like to have imperfections corrected. Per the study, the five most common reasons for having a rhinoplasty include, noses that are too long, too big, crooked or twisted, thick tip or a profile out of balance. However, it is also important to understand that rhinoplasty is one of the most complex plastic surgery procedures. Patients should make sure they select a facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Russell Kridel, who specialize in this procedure and performs more than 150 every year. No two people are alike and no two noses are alike. To make sure you have a successful rhinoplasty surgery that results in a natural looking nose that looks like you could have been born with it, you need to be in the best of hands. Houston facial plastic surgeon Dr. Russell Kridel is known by other physicians and patients as “The Nose Doctor” because of his international reputation as one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the country. He has authored more than 60 scientific journal articles and textbook chapters on Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty. Dr. Kridel has pioneered more than four surgical techniques for rhinoplasty that are now taught in medical schools across the country. In addition, surgeons travel from all over the world to Houston to observe Dr. Kridel or to hear him speak at medical conferences around the world. He has received the top awards for surgical excellence from the AAFPRS. There is no other cosmetic surgeon in Houston that has the depth of expertise, experience and reputation in regard to nose surgery.
