Are you unhappy with the size and shape of your nose? Rhinoplasty is one of the most frequently requested plastic surgeries around the world. Whether slightly off-center from an injury, or simply too large for one?s face, a nose that is deemed imperfect can lead to a number of self-esteem concerns.
While the definition of a perfect nose shape may be subjective, there are a number of features that are generally considered ideal.
Features of the nose that may not be considered ideal
Noses come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Noses are even often categorized as being one of 13 nose types, including Greek, Roman, Celestial, Nubian and more. There are some features amongst each type that may not be considered perfect by those living with them. Some of these include the following.
- A large bump on the nose
- A nose that is too wide
- A nose that juts out too far from the rest of the face
- A nose that has a bulbous tip
- A nose that features large, flared nostrils
During your consultation with Dr Michael Zacharia, you?ll be given the opportunity to discuss the features of your nose that you?d like to see changed. It?s important that you have realistic expectations about what the surgery may help you to achieve.
Features of the nose that are often considered to be perfect
Just what is the perfect nose shape? A nose that would be considered to be ideal, or perfect, is a nose that has a shape that works in harmony with your other facial features. The goal of facial plastic surgery is never to completely alter the way that you look, but to enhance your natural looks with a nose that has a more harmonious shape to it.
Keep in mind that our own personal perception of beauty can help us to define those features that are considered to be perfect for men and women. There is also a touch of an artistic flair that goes hand-in-hand with beauty and with cosmetic surgery. This means that the idea of perfection cannot always be defined with numbers and simple lines alone.
As an experienced and talented facial plastic surgeon, Dr Michael Zacharia can help you to better understand your aesthetic proportions and the types of improvements that surgery can offer you.
Some of the features of a nose that may be considered perfect could include the following:
- A nose that is in proportion with the rest of the facial features
- A smooth profile to the nose
- A smaller tip, versus a bulbous tip
- A nose that has symmetrical nostrils
- A nose that is straight and not off-center
The ideal nose shape, through the years
The nose is the most prominent feature on our face, which makes it glaringly obvious when we have some sort of concern with it. Throughout the years, the notion of what makes the ideal nose has changed to meet the needs of a changing world and a changing ideal of beauty.
For many years, the shape and size of the nose were associated with certain cultures and races. This often led people to want to alter their nose so that they would be able to blend in more, and remove any stigmas that may be associated with their ethnic features.
Through the years, diseases and war have had an impact on cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, with the goal of restoring normalcy for those who had been afflicted. Today, rhinoplasty is considered to be less of a way to remove cultural associations but more of a way to enhance one?s natural beauty.
