The Kate Middleton effect has well and truly had its way with the high-street but now it seems the Duchess is causing a boom in plastic surgery operations.

Apparently, more women than ever are turning to cosmetic surgeons for the Duchess of Cambridge's 'cute nose', with the number of lookalike surgeries trebling since 2011.

Maurizio Persico, a surgeon at Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, who specialises in nose reshaping, doesn't seem too surprised either. Talking to the Mail Online, he said, "Her nose is straight with a cute, rounded tip and in perfectly proportion to her face."

A team of surgeons in America has recently found the reason is Kate has a slightly upturned nose with a 106 degree angle.

Asking women between 18-25 to vote online for their perfect celebrity nose, Kate Middleton, Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson all came back as top which allowed surgeons to work out the most desirable nose angle.

"This gives Kate an attractive and striking profile," added Persico. "Plus, she always looks happy and confident in photos, which is especially appealing to women whose own appearance makes them unhappy - those who feel self-conscious about larger or crooked noses, which they believe dominate their faces."
