To perform plastic surgery on the human nose, a surgeon has to be able to look at a person’s face and figure out what sort of nose would look best. The modern surgeon doesn’t just slap a standard “ski-slope” nose on any sort of face, but there are a few general principles that apply. Symmetry in the face, and especially in the nose, almost always looks good. A strong nose works better if it goes with a strong chin.
Sometimes what patients want is for their nose to look more masculine or feminine. The basic procedures of rhinoplasty are the same for both sexes, but male skin tends to be a little thicker, and the bridge of a man’s nose is typically straighter and more prominent, with a less elevated tip. But these differences are very subtle, and only an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who has worked on thousands of different faces will have a sense of them. Such a surgeon can alter a nose so that most people would say it looks more masculine or feminine, even if they couldn’t say why.
