The nose is a dominant feature of the face that stands out dynamically, which is why its anatomy directly influences the overall image.
Every person is “different” in shape, size and contour so the shape of the ideal nose varies accordingly. Nevertheless, certain proportions are considered aesthetically ideal for almost everyone.
Some such features are a straight bridge of the nose, an elegant and triangular tip, a slight rebound between the bridge, nose and tip, a specific angle (90-105) between the upper lip and nostrils, a specific length from the face, etc.
All of the above are measurements that the plastic surgeon must take into account as he or she prepares for surgery and wants to shape the existing anatomy into a new “ideal” one.
With rhinoplasty, a nose can change its shape in many ways: it can grow, shrink, become narrower, wider, straighten, etc. depending on the needs that exist on a case-by-case basis.
Of course there are limitations, so the plastic surgeon will help you understand the surgical procedure, the anatomy involved and whether your expectations are realistic.
Of course, the plastic surgeon should include in his plan other factors such as asymmetry, the quality of the skin (thick, thin, sebaceous), nasal dysfunction (crooked septum, existence of a nasal valve, hypertrophic niches), possible allergic rhinitis, etc.
The jaw also plays an important role in perfect harmony. A small jaw emphasizes a large nose more than a large nose, which is why many times, with the right “aesthetic diagnosis”, a rhinoplasty can be performed at the same time.
