WHAT MAKES A MALE RHINOPLASTY UNIQUE?
Male rhinoplasty can be uniquely challenging because an ideal balance between size and shape must be reached without feminizing the male face (obvious exception in feminization surgery).
WHAT ARE SOME KEY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A MALE AND FEMALE NOSE?
Generally speaking, the male nose tends to be larger than the female nose. The bridge of the nose in a male can be either straight or have a slight hump while the female nose is either straight or slightly under straight. The tip rotation of the male nose is about 90 degrees while the female nose is more rotated. Finally, the nasal tip is wider in men than women.
Men are increasingly seeking cosmetic surgery and rhinoplasty is among the most frequently requested surgical cases by men. It is imperative to understand the male facial aesthetic and to maintain the appropriate nasal and facial proportions when performing male rhinoplasty.
