According to Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Kotler, cosmetic surgeons see a spike in business in the summer from high school kids who want nose jobs.
He says teens pick the hot months to get their noses done because the summer provides enough time for the major bruising and swelling caused by the procedure to go down before they head back to class in the fall.
Dr. Kotler doesnt find this trend surprising. He says many students dont want fellow classmates to know theyve had nasal nips.
Although Michael Jackson has given nasal cosmetic surgery a black eye, Dr. Kotler expects to slice and dice more high school pupils in future summers, especially since reality shows like Dr. 90210 and Extreme Makeover have shown teens that cosmetic surgery is a positive undertaking.
