Male Rhinoplasty vs Female Rhinoplasty

male-vs-female

Though the basics of rhinoplasty surgery are the same for men and women, the success of the procedure is dependent upon the artistic eye of your board-certified plastic surgeon. Men and women typically have different cosmetic goals when it comes to the shape and size of the nose. While women typically desire a smaller nose with more defined features and a slightly upturned tip, men often want a longer nose with a higher bridge and less tip elevation.

These aesthetic differences can be characterized into traits that are more “masculine” or more “feminine,” but the most important factor in achieving your desired outcome is clear and open communication with your doctor. During the consultation process, be sure to carefully explain the aspects of your nose you wish to change and be as specific as possible. Viewing before-and-after photos of your plastic surgeon’s previous rhinoplasty patients can give you a visual reference when describing your goals and expectations. Dr. John Hilinski customizes each rhinoplasty surgical plan to meet the needs of the individual. To learn more or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today.
