Beauty and the Nose

Before reading Gilman’s article, I’ve never really thought about the nose from a sociological perspective. In realty, I never really think about my nose unless I’ve got a cold.

Overall, I thought this article gave a good overview of the nose’s social history.

The following YouTube videos a examples of the ways in which some people modify or “fix” their noses in order to feel more attractive.

This video was one of many that demonstrated how to “fix” the nose so it appears to be smaller without surgery.

This video shows the process of Rhinoplasty. I thought this video was some what depressing because the lady felt that she had to “fix” her nose in order to live a better life.
