Barbie-perfect nose jobs have no place in the age of body positivity. According to plastic surgeons, the nature of nose jobs is changing big time.
Historically, rhinoplasty has been the archetype for procedures intended to correct so-called "imperfections" in order to meet a one-size-fits-all, Eurocentric standard of beauty that typically considered narrower noses to be the ideal. But as plastic surgery techniques have become increasingly creative (see: nipple fillers) and there is finally a much broader definition of what is beautiful, plastic surgeons are seeing a rise in patients who aren't seeking the procedures of the past. The new nose job is no longer about fitting in, but instead about embracing what makes you stand out.
