There’s probably no such thing as a perfect nose. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as they say. However, it’s not too much of a stretch to say certain noses suit certain faces better, at least from an aesthetic point of view. Of course, anything related to beauty is naturally subjective.
What matters, in the end, is that you’re pleased with your nose. A significant reason why the various types of rhinoplasty exist is to help people reach that level of happiness with their noses. Here we’ll discuss some considerations to help you find that perfect nose. Before you go looking for Rhinoplasty in Toronto, it’s a good idea to have an idea of what the goal of that rhinoplasty is.
One of the simplest factors to understand when it comes to the suitability of your face to your nose is proportions. Very often, this is something you can tell with a glance in the mirror. If your nose seems a little bit too large, that could very well be true!
A good rule of thumb is that horizontally your nose should be taking up roughly a fifth of your face. As for length, that’s more of a personal preference, but often people dislike noses that protrude too much.
You’ve probably come across the term “ethnic rhinoplasty” if you’ve been looking up information on rhinoplasty surgeries. These refer to rhinoplasties that try to maintain the unique appearance of the individual patient, rather than simply selecting a “perfect” nose shape from a list.
If your nose radically changes from the rest of your appearance, it can sometimes seem to clash with the rest of your face. A good example of this is the nasal bridge. While shrinking this could lead to a more elegant shape to the nose, raising or lowering it entirely could appear a bit too extreme.
Masculine or feminine?
When considering what kind of nose you want, it’s a good idea to decide if you want a more masculine or feminine nose. Generally, a masculine nose is going to be broad, with a wider tip.
On the more feminine end of the scale, the tip of the nose will generally be more delicate, and the bridge thinner. In deciding upon your perfect nose, you’ll need to decide how masculine or feminine you want your nose shape to be perceived.
Profile and balance
Look at your nose in profile view before thinking about surgical rhinoplasty. For many, a perfect nose involves removing bumps and irregularities. However, be careful about going too far in this regard.
Removing too much from the bridge of the nose can leave it “sunken.” By looking at yourself in profile, you can get a better idea of how much exactly you want to reduce for the perfect nose.
Use digital imaging
As you can tell, there’s a lot to try and figure out when it comes to determining your perfect nose shape. Thankfully, there’s a way to take much of the mystery out of this process.
At Rhinoplasty Toronto, we offer digital imaging to help you better visualize what a rhinoplasty could do for you. This helps you better select the sort of nose that’s perfect for your face— namely, a nose you can look at and say, “that’s the one for me.”
