Male vs Female Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery is often done to create harmony, and enhance the proportions of the face. Today, rhinoplasty is often done more conservatively than in the past, and it is less likely that the nose will be over corrected. Read on to learn about how male and female rhinoplasty can differ.

Ideal Appearance

Male and female noses differ in many ways, including the size of the nasal components, skin, bone, and cartilage. Because of this, it makes sense that the ideal nose for each sex is different. A feminine nose will have a slightly indented dorsum with a slightly upturned proportional tip, while a male nose will have a straight dorsum and proportional tip.

Differences in Requests

During consultations, patients should take the opportunity to speak with Dr. Husni about what they wish to correct about their nose. In general, men often complain of asymmetry, the large size of their nose, or a dorsal hump. Women are more likely to complain about a masculine-looking nose, or asymmetry of the face caused by the nose.

No matter your gender, rhinoplasty surgery is a great option for those who are unhappy with their look. Dr. Husni can create a more symmetrical nose to help flatter your facial proportions.
