Rhinoplasty is different between the sexes. Although the procedure itself is very similar, there are a few distinct differences between male and female rhinoplasty. This guide will help you understand the essentials of female rhinoplasty.
The Right Age for Female Rhinoplasty
Female rhinoplasty can occur any time after the late teens. Dr. Sajjadian recommends waiting until the nose has reached its full adult size. In girls this typically occurs at about 16 or 17. If your nose is full sized, you’re in good health, and you have the right expectations for surgery, rhinoplasty may be right for you. Contact us to learn more.
The Ideal Characteristics of a Female Nose
What does the ideal female nose look like? There is no one perfect, cookie cutter nose for every patient. Dr. Sajjadian custom tailors every rhinoplasty and ethnic rhinoplasty to the patient’s needs. He’ll create your ideal nose by balancing the characteristics of a female nose with your anatomy and surrounding features. Our goal is a balanced, natural looking result, a nose that looks like you were born with it.
Although there is no one perfect nose, there are a few distinct differences when comparing a female nose to a male nose. For women these include:
- Smaller size
- Narrower bridge
- Upturned tip
- Narrower nostrils
These characteristics are very general and are just a few of the basic guidelines that we use in creating the ideal female nose. Your nasal anatomy, your specific desires, and your goals for surgery will also impact your results. As a triple board certified plastic surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience, Dr. Sajjadian has a deep understanding of nasal anatomy and help you create a balanced, aesthetically pleasing nose.
Choosing the Right Surgeon for Your Female Rhinoplasty
When it comes to rhinoplasty you really want to get things right the first time around. Yes, there is revision rhinoplasty if you’re unhappy with your results, but this extra surgery is a lot more complex than just doing it right from the beginning. The right surgeon is essential to excellent rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty, or revision rhinoplasty results. Dr. Sajjadian is one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Orange County.
