Rhinoplasty is designed to recontour the nose for enhanced facial proportions and aesthetics. That said, while the procedure for restructuring one’s nose is very similar across gender lines, there can be significant differences in the cosmetic preferences that men and women seek out. Our consultant plastic surgeon—William Townley, MD, FRCS—provides bespoke rhinoplasty procedures at his London practice that are uniquely tailored to the cosmetic goals of each patient.
Rhinoplasty can accomplish a wide range of outcomes, including;
- Enlargement or reduction of the overall size of the nose
- Realignment of a crooked or misaligned nose
- Reconfiguration of the angle of the nose
- Widening or slimming of the nasal bridge
- Flattening or smoothing of bumps on the nasal bridge
- Expansion or reduction of the nostrils
- Improved nasal symmetry
For men, rhinoplasty typically focuses on emphasising the masculine shape and proportions of the nose by enhancing or restoring the prominence of the nasal bridge. For women, the procedure instead often focuses on providing a narrower bridge in order to create a more delicate and sleek appearance.
Female patients also typically desire a more upturned nasal tip, which is associated with a more feminine, elegant appearance. For men, a straighter nasal tip that is perpendicular to the lips can produce a more distinguished, masculine aesthetic.
When it comes to choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon, it is important to find someone with an elevated understanding of facial proportions and aesthetics who will listen to your unique concerns. Mr Townley has completed countless rhinoplasty surgeries that have produced excellent results for both male and female patients. He believes that balance is the key to achieving an outcome that looks both natural and beautiful.
