From coloring our hair to tweaking the shape of our eyebrows, a small change to our looks can make a world of a difference and even transform our lives. For the sake of looking our best, most of us are willing to try just about anything – from a tiny needle prick to actual surgery. This kind of metamorphosis is frequently seen in Hollywood where seemingly ordinary people become overnight stars after undergoing discreet plastic surgery procedures.
In the 1950’s, one of the most legendary actresses of our time, Marilyn Monroe, was rumored to have done cosmetic surgery on her chin and a slight rhinoplasty on the tip of her nose. Along with becoming a blond (with a killer curve-hugging wardrobe), Marilyn’s new look propelled her into stardom and to this day legions of women strive to emulate her image.
Fast forward to the present day, the same beauty rules apply. For one of the most sought-after models of the fashion world today, Bella Hadid, it can be said her instantaneous success can be attributed to undergoing rhinoplasty at 14 years old. Although Bella recently stated that she regrets undergoing such a drastic procedure, especially so young, it cannot be denied that rhinoplasty has launched her thriving modelling career. A few small changes to Bella’s facial features has landed her countless luxury brand campaigns, magazine covers and designer runways.
While it can be argued that if undergoing cosmetic surgery, such as rhinoplasty, worked wonders for Marilyn Monroe and Bella Hadid, then who could say no to his or her own rhinoplasty transformation. Before making a decision to undergo any plastic surgery, it is important to keep in mind that making dramatic changes to our appearance might give us neither fame nor fortune, not to mention surgery comes with a lot of risks. Doing a lot of research and consulting with a facial plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty are just some of the ways we can ensure we are making the right decision. They say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” but if we are the beholder, we should do what what makes us feel good about ourselves. If there is something bothering us about how we look, plastic surgery might be the answer to make ourselves feel great again!
