Nose aesthetic surgery is not a procedure that is carried out in the same way for everyone. This requires delicate variations for each patient in all stages from preparation and to healing. It is necessary to make different plans in nasal esthetic surgery depending on the shape of the nose, the degree of respiratory problem and the pathology, the thickness of the skin, whether there is previous surgery and the sex of the patient.
In both women and men patients wanting to have nose aesthetic surgery, the first thing to do is to listen to their expectations about their noses and then planning a nose structure which is proper to their face.
Actually, the nose itself is a organ with a sex. The angles it creates with the facial structures, the curvature, length and the stiffness of the nasal tip may add a masculine or feminine expression to the face.
There should be tough looking nose structures for male patients. Compared to those of women, the noses create different angles with the forehead and the lips. A straight nasal back with no curvature should be considered when planning a man's nose esthetic operation. The nose tip should be at an angle of 90-100 degrees with the lip and the side and front view the nostrils should not be very visible. The nose should not be shrunk excessively.
Nose aesthetic operations performed on men can be carried out using either an open or a closed technique. After a man's nose surgery, the recovery process is generally quicker. Bruises and swellings heal faster.
Nose aesthetic operations performed on women can also be carried out using either an open or a closed technique. Women should have a slight nose back curvature; nose should be shrunk to the level that does not hinder breathing. The nose tip should be planned more raised than that of male patients. The nostrils should not be fully visible when viewed from the front. When viewed across, the nose width should be decreased and the nose should be narrowed to a line from the eyebrows to the nose tip.
Excessive curvature or excessive nose rising distorts the natural appearance of the nose.
Both in men and women, the nose gives the most pleasant image if it is compatible with the face, breathable, symmetrical and has a natural appearance.
