Features for a Beautiful Nose

Written By Joe Gryskiewicz, MD, FACS

The idea of beauty varies from person to person and is different among different ethnicities. Beauty can be defined in a variety of ways around the world, depending on personal preferences, social media influencers, celebrity fashion, and the media. The nose plays a significant part in determining facial beauty because it is the most prominent feature of the face.

While opinions on what makes a nice nose may vary, symmetry and proportionality remain important components of a beautiful nose. Symmetrical faces are appealing to people. So, this is what plastic surgeons hope to accomplish in the majority of facial surgeries.

Some people are fortunate enough to be born with a symmetrical, perfectly proportional nose, but others are less fortunate. Thankfully, this circumstance can be changed. This means that you do not have to go through life with the nose you were born with. You can pick rhinoplasty, a symmetry-conscious cosmetic treatment, and receive the beautiful nose of your dreams. Some people cleverly say, “Pick your own nose.”

There is a specific procedure to follow in order to get a gorgeous nose. This makes it very important to pick a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Joe Gryskiewicz who possesses both technical know-how and a genuine creative sense. Your plastic surgeon will also discuss with you and develop a unique treatment plan for you to ensure that you get the best results from your treatment.

What are the Various Nose Models in Men and Women?

One of the factors taken into account in rhinoplasty is gender. Strong, angular characteristics define masculinity, but softer, thinner features produce a more attractive, feminine appearance.

Rhinoplasty for men generally aims to give them a wide nose with a firm, reasonably straight bridge. Men typically don’t require a certain style for their nose tip. Although the nose tip in men may be spherical, it is often wider than in women, making it easier for men to discern the cartilaginous borders of the tip.

Women typically have a broader variety of nose models that complement their overall appearance. Some of them are delicate and kind, while others may appear convincing but lack the necessary strength. In general, the lower nasal bones should be smooth, slender, and have oblique and forward angles that harmoniously complement the face, eyebrows, and forehead. Shorter noses with slightly rotated tips look more attractive on ladies.

In the past, rhinoplasty was more therapeutic and altered the form and features of the nose, but frequently with a very unpleasant and disappointing outcome. Cosmetic surgeons today strive to maintain structure and are more conservative. The surgery’s outcome is more aesthetically pleasing and can improve both aesthetics and respiratory function.

What are the Characteristics of a Beautiful Nose?

Determining what patients desire from their surgery is one of the most difficult tasks for any surgeon. You must understand and adhere to a unique formula in order to achieve your desired goals. Everybody has a different face, so it can be challenging to identify the features and traits of a nose that would complement a specific face. Generally speaking, there are a few things that the majority of people wish to improve and use as a benchmark. These are:

What are the Types of Noses?

Noses can be of any size or shape. Every nose is unique, regardless of whether it is long, upturned, short, or wide. What type you have is greatly influenced by the amount of nasal cartilage in your nose and your nasal cavity’s size. The six most common types of noses include:

  1. The upturned nose: also known as the celestial nose, this nose type is characterized by a small nose with a pointed tip and a depressed nasal bridge. The celestial nose can be seen in about thirteen percent of the world’s population and it is generally considered one of the most attractive nose shapes;
  2. The Greek nose: this nose type is perfectly straight and has characteristic small nostrils. The small nostrils that are characteristic of the Greek nose are a common request among patients who want to undergo a Rhinoplasty;
  3. The Roman or Aquiline nose: this nose’s form features a prominent bridge and a bent or curvy appearance. The tip of a Roman nose is rounded and descended;
  4. The Nubian nose: a long nose with a broad base is known as a Nubian nose, and it is common among ethnicities with darker skin tones. The nostrils of people with this nose are typically reduced in order to achieve a narrower nose width;
  5. The Snub nose: it is a short nose with a small upward bend at the end, resembling a celestial nose;
  6. The Hawk nose: Hawk noses share the same characteristics as hawk beaks, which are long and narrow, with a downward-curving bridge. Bone and cartilage in the center of the nose cause it to protrude, and most people with this natural shape choose to have their noses reshaped because a hawk nose doesn’t provide a strong impression.

How Should an Attractive Nose Look Like?

People have always been drawn to symmetry and proportion with the prevalent belief being that symmetry is ideal. Some people may be fortunate enough to have a nose that is proportionate from birth, but others are not. With rhinoplasty, people with disproportionate noses can get the beautiful nose they desire.

The face can be divided into three main regions. The region between your forehead and your eyebrows makes up the upper part. The eyebrows to the base make up the middle portion. The lower segment extends from the base of your nose to your chin. The perfect proportion of your face, together with vertical and horizontal symmetry, is then determined by applying the golden ratio to your face. These “Facial Thirds” can be considered by your surgeon when correcting your facial balance.

What Is Considered the Ideal Nose Shape for Women?

A woman’s profile should be angled at 98 degrees from the bottom of her nose to the point of her upper lip, according to research. According to the science behind it, it makes women more feminine.

A button nose is also seen to be the most attractive nasal shape for women, based on studies. This kind of nose has a narrower nasal bridge and is raised at the tip. It is a small, round nose with a form resembling a button. Women considering rhinoplasty often choose this shape of nose since it is very feminine.

What Is Considered the Ideal Nose Shape for Men?

A nose that is at a ninety-degree angle to the upper lip is generally considered the ideal nose shape for males. It’s also attractive to have a nose with a tip that sticks out a little bit below the lower end of the nose.

How do Plastic Surgeons Measure Facial Symmetry?

By visually partitioning the face into parts, plastic surgeons are able to evaluate facial symmetry. Your plastic surgeon will use the neoclassical canons as a reference in order to divide the face into two parts, horizontal and vertical. Your plastic surgeon will also be able to determine the ideal placement and size of the nose with the use of these measurements. The rules for determining facial symmetry include:

What Changes Would You Need to Make to Get the Ideal Nose?

If you’re considering a rhinoplasty, it is important to have reasonable expectations from your procedure. Even though technology has advanced greatly since its early days, there are still some restrictions. You can show your surgeon some images that highlight the features you want to see. A reputable plastic surgeon who does rhinoplasty will be able to show you pictures of the potential modifications.

You may get your nose reduced if it is too wide. Similarly, you can have surgery to lower your nasal bridge if it has a hump. If you don’t like the tip of your nose, you can get it changed to your preferences. If you decide to make many adjustments, be sure that all of these distinctive aspects come together to create a wonderful nose that complements your face.
