What is Different About Male Rhinoplasty?
In considering a male rhinoplasty, Dr De Silva believes it is essential to consider the differences between a male and a female nose.
The typically desired features for a male nose, though each patient will have a different, customized “ideal” nose, are a straighter profile, a stronger, higher bridge, a more sharply defined nasal tip, and stronger, more masculine features, whereas a woman typically benefits from a more delicate, smaller and feminine look. The aesthetic proportions of a male and female nose also differ, especially around the dorsal hump positioning, nasal width, and nasal tip angle.
Dr Julian De Silva has vast experience performing rhinoplasty in London and understands how to combine the characteristics of an attractive nose with the rest of the patient’s features. An attractive nose should flow in harmony with the contours of the face.
- For women, a smaller nose, a narrower bridge and an unobtrusive tip angled slightly up are deemed most attractive.
- For men, a strong bridge and a slightly broader width and a tip are deemed most attractive. A nose that is more curved or smaller tip can look feminine.
These key features are understood by any plastic surgeon. The best plastic surgeons are the ones who can integrate these ideas and cater them to form the ideal nose for the patient’s face.
Men also request more handsome results to reflect their individual character, and often will want to keep their ethnic shape; the goal of the nose surgery is not for a “cookie-cutter” look, but a subtle enhancement to the facial proportions.
The Key for men is “less is more”, from Dr De Silva’s experience most men do not want a “done” appearance and the results must look natural.
