At Eos Rejuvenation, many of our patients express a desire to look more feminine, specifically in their facial features. This is often a fruit of male-to-female transitioning, but we also hear from many gender-fluid and cisgender patients who simply wish to soften their features. Regardless, we are happy to assist through a range of treatments known as facial feminization surgeries (FFS) or gender affirming surgeries.
FFS may encompass different procedures for different patients, simply depending on their cosmetic goals. One common example is rhinoplasty, or as it is more commonly known a “nose job.” Dr. Nima has assisted countless patients in achieving more feminine features, and often that process involves alterations to the nose.
The Differences in Male Noses vs. Female Noses
There are a number of general distinctions we could make between traditionally masculine noses and traditionally feminine ones. More often than not, male noses are a bit larger and a little more angular. Additionally, men tend to have nasal bridges that are a little bit wider and straighter. By contrast, a feminine nose tends to be narrower and is often pointed upward.
While these distinctions may seem subtle, they can actually make a world of difference with regard to the overall facial appearance. To help patients get a more feminine look, we often recommend making structural alterations to the nose itself, which may involve resizing it as well as reshaping it.
How Rhinoplasty Helps with Feminization
First and foremost, the goal of rhinoplasty is always to bring the nose into greater harmony and proportionality with the rest of the facial features.
Additionally, a feminizing rhinoplasty procedure will usually involve Dr. Nima making the nose a little smaller, also changing its profile to have that feminine curvature. This process can entail narrowing the nose internally or else removing nasal cartilage.
