Rhinoplasty for Men
Male Rhinoplasty is not a specifically different procedure than Rhinoplasty, however, it is helpful to understand the differences between male and female noses.
While each patient should be approached individually, here are certain characteristics that we subconsciously tend to associate with female and male noses, and as such should be incorporated into the surgery plan.
What makes a nose appear more masculine?
- Tip Rotation- less upturned (less rotated tips), or straighter tips are perceived more masculine.
- Tip Projection-Shorter noses on men should be avoided as they tend to be perceived as more feminine
- Nose Bridge- straight or slightly full bridges appear more masculine.
- Width- The width of the bridge should not be made too thin, and the tip should not appear excessively sculpted, as these are associated with a more feminine appearance.
These are only general guidelines, and any of the above changes, among others, can and should be performed to varying degrees according to each man’s needs and facial proportions.
All changes during a male rhinoplasty should be made in relationship to the rest of the face. Taking a man’s individual proportions and facial features into account is critical to achieve a natural and balanced outcome. Read more about our Houston Rhinoplasty.
