Is there a celebrity face that inspires you?


Whether it’s Kate Bosworth’s angular chin, Kate Middleton’s proportional nose, or Olivia Munn’s distinctive eyes – it’s not uncommon for patients to look to the “stars” to identify features that might better complement their faces. In fact, according to a survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 13% of polled facial surgeons said they’ve seen an increase in patients requesting celebrity-inspired procedures between 2014 and 2015.

What are the most sought after features? The top picks, according to the AAFPRS include…

  •       Angelina Jolie’s lips and cheekbones
  •       Beyoncé’s facial structure
  •       Kim Kardashian’s eyes and jawline
  •       Brad Pitt’s nose
  •       Natalie Portman’s nose

While it helps for you to develop an image of the result you would like, it is important to keep your expectations in check. As a patient, you will have a consultation with Dr. Ahn to identify the improvements that will best fit your face. Instead of seeking to replicate a celebrity’s feature, consider identifying aspects of the celebrity trait that will best complement your facial structure. For example, Kate Middleton has a straight nose with a rounded and slightly-upturned tip – will those features fit your face?
