Augmented Rhinoplasty (Nose Augmentation)

Augmented Rhinoplasty is very common among Asians and non-Caucasians to correct a flat nose with a round bulbous tip and flaring nostrils. The aim is to build an aesthetically pleasing nasal bridge with an elegant projection and well defined nasal tip, and at the same time narrow the flaring nostril base. An implant is usually used.

The implanted material is biocompatible and extremely safe. Incisions are made inside the rim of the nostrils. Soft tissues of the nose are then separated from the underlying structure to create the appropriate space for nose implant projecting the nasal tip and increase the height of the nose.

Of all the procedures performed by plastic surgeons, rhinoplasty is the most challenging. And it is with this procedure that society judges you by its shape and the skills of the surgeon because the nose is the first thing you see when you look at someone. There is no way to hide the nose, before or after the procedure. Noses are so variable in size and shape that it is hard to define what is normal. Every nose is different and every result should be different, fitting the patient’s face.

Nothing defines your appearance quite like your nose. Like it or not, people identify and even judge you by its shape and size. If your nose overwhelms your other features, it can hamper your self confidence by affecting your looks. That’s especially true if you are transitioning from your birth gender as a male to your new gender as a female. Having the nose that is bigger and wider than the small, narrowed version found in most women can ruin the feminine identity you wish to project. Can it be changed? Yes. By reshaping your nasal contours, rhinoplasty is one of the most important operations in facial feminization.

If you’re a transgender individual, your nose presents one of the most obvious facial challenges to your feminity. Distinct differences are found between the sexes. First, male nose are larger in every aspect than in female noses. They’re longer and wider with larger nostrils and generally bulkier tips than those features in women. Second, a man’s nose points either ahead or slightly downward at the base, as opposed to a woman’s nose which points slightly upward at its base. The female bridge in some ethnicities also “scoops” or dips before sloping gently straight downward or into a slightly upturned tip. 

Third, and perhaps most important, the angles between the nose and the forehead, and between the nose and the upper lip tend to be sharper in men than woman. As a male you may not have the chiseled profile but your nose likely projects off your forehead in a more abrupt way. You may even sport an unsightly bump, called a dorsal hump.

In changing our nose to fit your new gender, your surgeon will make sure that it not only slopes gently from your forehead but also is free of any humps or bumps. He or she will also downsize and resculpt until this part of your face fully reflects your new identity.
