What’s the deal with the rising popularity of nose jobs? And why are these 5 states more popular for this type of plastic surgery than other states? Are nose jobs exclusively for models and actors, or is the average person getting rhinoplasty too? We have the answers you need right here, and some might surprise you! 

We did an online data search to find out which states had the highest search volume (and growing) for the terms “rhinoplasty” and “nose jobs” over the last 5 years. While some states are the ones you would have guessed, there were a few surprises on the list—here’s what we found. 

5 States Most Popular for Rhinoplasty

  1. California. Unsurprisingly, cities like Hollywood and LA are hot spots for nose jobs. Facial symmetry matters in the entertainment industry, and a nose job can accomplish that.  
  2. New York. Larger metropolitan areas tend to have more advanced medical facilities and a higher concentration of qualified plastic surgeons. And, NY is also where a lot of people in the fashion and film industry live. When you’re in the limelight there is a lot of pressure to look as close to perfect as possible, and so nose jobs are highly sought after here.   
  3. Nevada. Cities like Las Vegas attract individuals seeking the best possible care and results, and these areas often have a higher demand for cosmetic procedures. Las Vegas has become a hub for medical tourism, a spot where people in and even outside of the U.S. are seeking top surgeons for rhinoplasty at a reasonable price.  
  4. Utah. Salt Lake City has the second-highest number of plastic surgeons per capita in America, according to a Utah Valley University study. With a wide range of surgeons to choose from, more people head to Utah for their nose job surgery. 
  5. New Jersey. New Jersey has regions with relatively higher levels of affluence, and people with disposable income may be more likely to invest in elective cosmetic procedures because the bill isn’t a problem for them. But money is only one of the reasons out of many NJ is popular for rhinoplasty.

Wait, Why is Rhinoplasty Popular in New Jersey?

Liposuction, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, facelifts, and rhinoplasties are the top 5 procedures people are coming to New Jersey for. The question is: Why? Can’t you get these procedures anywhere? Yes, but NJ is attracting more people because these procedures are less expensive than in larger cities like New York City, and you can find some of the country’s leading surgeons here.

Why are certain states more popular for nose jobs than others? Specific regions of the U.S. see more patients, comparatively, for nose jobs for several reasons. Some of these reasons include:


States like California and New York have a strong culture around cosmetic surgery and beauty enhancement. As a result, people in these areas may be more inclined to seek cosmetic procedures, including nose jobs.

Skilled Surgeons

Some states have a higher concentration of experienced and skilled plastic surgeons specializing in rhinoplasty. Patients are often willing to travel to these areas to ensure they receive high-quality care from reputable Doctors.

Media Influence

Media plays a significant role in shaping beauty standards and influencing societal perceptions. Cities with a strong media presence may have a higher demand for cosmetic procedures, as individuals strive to meet or emulate the beauty ideals portrayed in the media.

Word of Mouth

People often rely on recommendations from friends, family, or colleagues when choosing a plastic surgeon. If a particular state or city has a strong network of satisfied patients who have undergone successful nose jobs, it can contribute to the popularity of that location for such procedures.

Cultural and Demographic Factors

Cultural attitudes towards cosmetic surgery can vary, and some regions may have a more accepting or encouraging stance toward these procedures. Additionally, demographic factors, such as a higher proportion of individuals in certain age groups or socioeconomic classes, may influence the demand for nose jobs in specific states. For example, people between the ages of 20 and 29 accounted for 31% of all nose job patients according to ASPS National Clearinghouse of Plastic Surgery Procedural Statistics.

Why Are So Many People Having Rhinoplasty Done?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), rhinoplasty is the third most popular plastic surgery nationwide, behind liposuction and breast augmentation. People get nose jobs for a variety of reasons.

  • Matching the size and shape of the nose to the rest of the face
  • Straighten a crooked nose
  • Improve breathing by opening up narrow or deviated nasal passages
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose
  • Reducing the size of a bump on the bridge of the nose
  • Fixing an injury or birth defect
