Most men prefer a more prominent and powerful nose with distinctive features.
The ideal nose for male rhinoplasty may be different than for female rhinoplasty. The rhinoplasty patient should be prepared to be very clear about their aesthetic goals, and the surgeon should understand the characteristics of each gender.
Different characteristics of the Male and Female nose
CDU Know-How for Satisfactory Male Rhinoplasty
1. A straight profile from the eyebrow bone to the tip of the nose
The tip of the nose may be less rotated, with the angle between the upper lip and the nose falling at 90-95 degrees. In comparison, women prefer a more petite nose with a more upwardly rotated tip.
2. A naturally connected radix from the eyebrow bone
The main feature of the male nose is a distinct and higher bridge than the female nose. While the female nose is gently connected from the eyebrows to the bridge, the male nose may have a stronger contour.
3. Voluminous tip
If the tip of the nose has less volume, the nose appears feminine and unbalanced on the male face. The tip may not be too thick, but it should have enough volume, giving him/her a masculine look.
4. The appropriate nasolabial angle between 90-95 degrees
The nasolabial angle alters the character of the face. The most appropriate angle of the male nose is about 90-95 degrees, while for a female nose it is about 95-105 degrees.
1. The columella should not be too short
2. Distinctive T-zone & thick bridge
For a powerful and masculine character, the width of the nose should be slightly thicker and straighter than the female nose.
3. The alar base should not be too wide, giving a sophisticated look.
When the alar base is wider than usual, the nose may look less defined and dull. By reducing the alar base, the nose becomes sharper and more attractive.
