Kate Middleton Nose Popular For Plastic Surgery: 5 Other Celebrity-Inspired Surgeries

Kate Middleton's nose is as much in demand these days as she is, as more women than ever are going under the knife to achieve the duchess' petite, sloping sniffer.

The New York Daily News reports that droves of New York women are heading to plastic surgeons with photos of Kate Middleton in hopes of enhancing their noses to look more like hers.

"I love the shape and size of Kate Middleton's nose and just knew I had to have it," Brianna Diaz, 26, an office manager from Long Island, told New York Daily.

One New York doctor estimates he's performed some 100 Kate Middleton-inspired nose jobs, each costing between $10,000 and $12,000. In Britain, surgeons say that requests for Kate Middleton's royal bridge have tripled since 2011, according to a Daily Mail article from January.

Psychologist Carmen Lefevre, who studies facial attributes, told Daily Mail that the preference for Kate's small, straight nose is actually a thing of human evolution.  "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 explained.   

But it's not just Kate Middleton's nose that has the celeb-obsessed masses getting nipped and tucked. For years, celebs have inspired hopeful copycats to spend big bucks on reconstructive surgeries to look like their favorite stars.
