Men and women differ in many ways with regards to the nose. There are different proportions and angles which determine feminine aesthetic beauty. These same principles cannot be applied to the male rhinoplasty.
Different techniques and considerations in a male rhinoplasty must be implemented to avoid feminization of the nose. Male features are characteristically stronger than women. Therefore, it is vital to maintain proper angles and proportions.
When unhappy with the results of a previous rhinoplasty, a person may elect to undergo revision rhinoplasty. This procedure is frequently different in approach than a primary rhinoplasty (or, first time). Steps must be taken to correct specific problems related to appearance and breathing mechanics.
The ethnic rhinoplasty is a procedure that involves maintain the characteristics of the nose that are common to the person's ethnicity. Middle Eastern noses are different from Hispanic noses, which are in turn different than Caucasian noses.
Cleft Lip Rhinoplasty
Patients with cleft lip and palate can develop unique problems related to the appearance of the nose. A cleft lip rhinoplasty is designed to address the unique problems of the cleft patient that would otherwise not be addressed by a traditional rhinoplasty. These should only be performed by a craniofacial specialist.
This technique, also referred to as "liquid rhinoplasty," involves the injection of dermal fillers such as hyaluronic acid to fill in defects and shape the nose without the need for an incision. There are limitations to a non-surgical rhinoplasty, and results are never permanent. But for those looking to improve slight imperfections, this is an excellent technique.
