Men’s and women’s noses
Sometimes people go to a surgeon wanting their nose to look more masculine or feminine. The basic procedures of nose jobs are the same for both sexes, and the differences between their noses are almost drowned out by individual variation. But experienced cosmetic surgeons who work on enough patients eventually develop a sense of the general differences, which allows them to make subtle changes that most observers would say make a nose look more manly or womanly, even if the observers couldn’t say exactly why.
Male skin tends to be a little thicker than female skin, which blunts some of the angles and makes the nose look less delicate. The bridge of a man’s nose is usually straighter and more prominent, with a less elevated tip. The process of making these changes will be different in every case. Using computer imaging, a good rhinoplasty surgeon can show you different possible outcomes, so you can explain precisely what results you want from the operation.
