Rhinoplasty

When the facial skeleton grows downwards and forwards in the male adolescent, in response to testosterone, then the nose grows with it. A strong profile is considered masculine and attractive in the male but women prefer a more feminine appearance with a less dominant nasal profile and slightly turned up nasal tip. The distinction between male and feminine faces is that of proportion. A nose which contributes to a strong facial profile will be interpreted as masculine in appearance.

The angle between the brow and the nose can be feminised by a combination of brow recontouring and rhinoplasty. The angle between the lip and the nose can be changed with a rhinoplasty and the profile lowered.
