Northfield, IL (PRWEB) March 26, 2014
Board-certified cosmetic surgeon and facial expert Dr. Anthony Geroulis has performed a rhinoplasty procedure on 23 year-old patient, Angeline, in order to give her an “Angelina Jolie nose.” While in the past it has been rather uncommon for patients of Dr. Geroulisto request celebrity facial features, it has recently become a growing trend throughout the world, with Kate Middleton’s nose as the most requested celebrity feature in the United Kingdom. This growing phenomenon has traveled beyond Los Angeles and New York City to Chicago, a city typically known for its more conservative, Midwest approach to cosmetic surgery. Especially taking advantage of this trend is a younger age group of patients. While many older cosmetic surgery patients wish to look as they once did, teens and young adults often seek to emulate media figures they admire and find attractive.
Dr. Geroulis admits that not every patient is the right candidate for the “mirroring technique” of emulating a certain facial feature of another person’s face. Dr. Geroulis is an accomplished and active sculptorwho approaches each patient withan artistic frame of mind.Dr. Geroulis explains, “I look at the entire face, as a sculptor would, and then determine how proper balance and proportion can be achieved for this face, so as to accomplish the patient’s personal goal.” Coincidently, in my patient Angeline’s case, copying an “Angelina Jolie nose” was the best choice: “I explained to the patient that in her case,the form of nose shaping of Angelina Jolie would be ideal. The patient’s facial contour, in conjunction with her other delicate facial featureslend themselves remarkably to accomplishing this goal.”
Dr. Geroulis explains the distinct difference between catering to the whims of a patient copying a celebrity feature and truly finding the right match for a patient: “For nose procedures, I always strive to contour the shape of the nose in a particular way that best compliments and naturally flows in relation to the unique features of each face. Sometimes, the final result, whether it be a nose or chin, may end up mirroring the feature of a celebrity even though our goal was to provide the patient with the most optimal form that suits their face.”
