The Nose – Which Shape is the Most Beautiful?

The nose is a central part of the face, shaping the appearance and impression that a person makes when meeting someone for the first time. Ideally, a nose must fit the face there is no standard nose according to the motto: One fits all.

There are certainly differences between the ideal female and male nose shape. The ideal female nose is finer, more delicate and has a slight curve, i.e. a difference in height between the bridge of the nose and the tip of the nose. The ideal male nose is stronger, more prominent, the bridge and tip of the nose are at the same level, often referred to as the “Roman Nose”.

However, in both sexes, if the nose is too big or crooked, one can take hit to their self esteem and ultimately, the self confidence.

The Way to the Perfect Nose

A nose that does not fit the face and contradicts our ideas of aesthetics can be changed by a rhinoplasty. Sometimes you have to give nature a nudge, it doesn’t jump by itself…

Individual facial shapes must be taken into account when planning and performing an operation. The wishes of the patient, technical limitations aside, are heard and taken into account by the surgeon so that the rhinoplasty will provide an optimal aesthetic result for the patient.

Nose Reduction

A nose that is too large impairs the harmonious facial features. As experienced specialists in plastic and aesthetic surgery, we can reduce the size of your nose and give it a completely new shape. Depending on the shape correction, different surgical steps and procedures are possible. For example, by removing bone and cartilage, a hump nose can be treated or the nose can be narrowed. With pronounced large noses, the tip of the nose is usually also corrected.

Nose Tip Correction

When the tip of the nose is reshaped, a shortening, lifting, straightening / lowering or narrowing of the nostrils occurs.

Nasal Septum Operation

One of the most frequently performed rhinoplasties is the operation on the nasal septum. The reasons for this are more for health problems aesthetics, such as the shape of a crooked nose. The symptoms resulting from a malformation of the nasal septum can be, for example, difficulty breathing.

The Goal is a Pleasing Result & Satisfied Patients

Rhinoplasty is without doubt one of the most demanding cosmetic surgery procedures. The aim of a nose operation is to achieve an optimally aesthetically pleasing shape that fits the respective face. It is therefore important that the operation is carried out by surgeons with sufficient experience, aesthetic understanding and sensitivity, so that the operation can be a huge success.

In the case of respiratory tract obstructions such as those resulting from a nasal septum curvature (septum deviation), the cause of reduced nasal breathing is eliminated, the patient can breathe freely again.

If necessary, a function-improved operation can be combined with an aesthetic correction. We would be pleased to advise you on the individual possibilities of a combined correction.

The Procedure of a Nose Operation

Before the procedure we simulate the result with a photo, this way the patient can better imagine the results of their ideas and conceptions of his nose, what shape can be achieved.

Nose corrections take place under anaesthesia and take one to two and a half hours, usually our patients stay in our clinic for one night. Then they go home with a cast on and come to us for follow-up checks.

If nasal breathing is restricted and the cause is determined by a physical examination and, if necessary, endoscopy and CT, a measurement, a rhinomanometry, is used to determine how severely it is impaired. Then treatment is carried out according to the results of the examinations.


After one week the plaster and the stitches at the nasal bridge are removed, you able to go out on the street and among people, the immediate side effects of the operation have subsided.

However, after nose operations it takes a very long time, up to one year, until the nose has reached its final shape. This is how long it takes until the internal healing process is completely complete. In daily practice, the patient must always be patient and let time work. The last follow-up check is then carried out after twelve months to see whether all the goals of the operation have been achieved. Excersise is possible after two to four weeks, however, contact and ball sports must be avoided. as the operated nose must not be pushed or pressed.


With any operation there is no such thing as zero risk!!! but with experienced surgeons, the risk is small. The most important medical risk is the post-operative breathing impediment, which careful surgical technique reduces. In approx. 10 % of cases, prominent internal scars appear during the healing process, which can be visible. They cannot really be influenced, the healing process follows a fixed pattern. This may require a post-operational procedure, which is then small and only corrects the distension.
