Female Rhinoplasty
New York City

Achieving a symmetrical and balanced look

Rhinoplasty is widely considered one of the most complex and challenging surgical procedures. It must be performed by highly skilled plastic surgeons with a strong understanding of facial anatomy, ideally someone specializing in rhinoplasties. Rhinoplasty allows you to alter the shape, size, or position of your nose, helping you achieve a more symmetrical and balanced look. However, male and female patients generally have different expectations from rhinoplasty.

A NYC female rhinoplasty refers to a nose job that addresses your unique cosmetic concerns while favoring a feminine appearance. Women generally opt for rhinoplasties to achieve smaller noses with a scooped bridge or an upturned nasal tip. They also prefer gentle angles that produce a softer look. However, it’s important to understand that all patients are unique, and all female rhinoplasties should be performed according to your unique facial features.

Why Undergo Female Rhinoplasty

You may undergo a female rhinoplasty for numerous cosmetic or functional reasons. Cosmetic reasons include addressing issues related to symmetry, nose shape and size, flared nostrils, bulbous tip, etc. Functional reasons generally refer to an inability to breathe properly through both nostrils because of a deviated septum. Whatever the goal might be, the plastic surgeon must understand and address your unique concerns.

You may undergo a female rhinoplasty for these reasons:

  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Dorsal hump concerns
  • Extremely wide or narrow nostrils
  • Extremely large or small nose
  • Large, drooping, pinched, or bulbous nasal tip
  • Deviated septum
  • Structural problems
  • Other functional or cosmetic concerns

Types of Female Rhinoplasty

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

Cosmetic rhinoplasty refers to nose jobs performed to correct cosmetic concerns, such as reducing the Dorsal hump, narrowing the nostrils, adding volume to the nose bridge, or changing the shape and size of the nose.

Functional Rhinoplasty

Functional rhinoplasty refers to nose jobs performed to address structural or functional concerns, such as an inability to breathe properly from both nostrils. In this case, the surgeon may have to fix a deviated septum.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty refers to nose jobs performed to correct the results of a failed primary rhinoplasty. Botched nose jobs can lead to the collapse of the nose structure or unwanted cosmetic results, necessitating a revision procedure.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Ethnic rhinoplasty refers to nose jobs that help you achieve optimal facial symmetry while retaining the core markers of your ethnic identity. If you have an ethnic background, the surgeon will address your unique concerns without giving you a eurocentric nose.

Female Rhinoplasty Surgical Techniques

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is a surgical technique that involves an incision in the columella, the tissue between the nostrils. The incision allows the surgeon to pull back the skin and modify the underlying structures of the nose, including the bone and cartilage. This technique is necessary for patients seeking extensive corrections, such as narrowing a nose bridge. The incision is placed discreetly, so it’s virtually invisible after healing.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is a scarless technique because the incisions are made inside the nostrils, so there’s no visible scarring outside. However, this technique can only correct minor cosmetic concerns — it cannot address issues related to the nasal tip or bridge. Your surgeon will carefully examine your nose and discuss your concerns to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure.
