The hottest commodity on the New York plastic surgery market appears to be Kate Middleton's nose, Manhattan doctors say.
"A couple of months ago, these women started coming into my office and asking for Kate Middleton’s nose," Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, surgeon and author of "A Little Nip, A Little Tuck," told the New York Daily News.
"It has become so popular that we have made a file of a dozen Kate Middleton pictures to show patients when they come in for their consultation."

Jessica Blaier, a 22-year-old New York University student, said she ripped out pictures of Kate Middleton from People magazine and took them to her surgeon for reference.
"When I saw Kate’s nose, I just knew it was the perfect nose for me," Blaier told the Daily News. "Other celebrities had parts of their noses that I wanted, but Kate’s nose had it all. The bridge swoops. The tip doesn’t fall when she smiles. And it’s feminine."
Greenberg estimates that at least 20 women are scheduled for the $7,000 rhinoplasty procedure at his office in the next month. One of those women is Johanna Ricardi.
"I've been looking around at different actresses and people like that and there was all this buzz about Kate's nose," Ricardi told the Daily News. "I had a look at it and I said, you know what, that is like the cutest thing ever. And who wouldn't want to look like a princess?"
Dr. Thomas Romo, who works at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, said the fascination with the Duchess of Cambridge's nose began in 2011 with all the publicity from the royal wedding.
"Women, especially over the age of 28, want the nose of a woman who is regal, refined, and strong," he told the Daily News. "They certainly don't want the scooped out, over-affected, upturned, pinched nose of a pop star that you see in Seventeen magazine."
