What is Considered the Perfect Nose Shape?

Are you considering a rhinoplasty procedure? Often referred to as a nose job, rhinoplasty remains one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed around the world. Whether you’re dissatisfied with the size or shape of your nose, or you are hoping to correct an issue that impacts your breathing, this surgery, like all other cosmetic procedures, is an individualized and personal decision.

Just what is considered to be the perfect nose shape? The concept of beauty is something that is unique to each person. It can be influenced by cultural factors and personal preference. Throughout the years, the idea of a perfect nose shape has altered due to a range of influences.

Features that can make a nose seem less than perfect

While some of us may be perfectly content with the nose that nature and our genetics gave us, for others, there may be some features of our nose that we wish to change. Some of the features that are often seen as less than perfect may include the following:

  • A dorsal hump, which is a large bump seen on the profile of the nose
  • A bulbous tip, which is a large rounded tip of the noise
  • Flared and wide nostrils
  • A nose that juts out too far from the face
  • A nose that seems like it is simply not the right size when compared to the rest of the facial features

It is important to mention again, that what may seem to be less than perfect for you, may be seen as something wonderful to another person. That’s one of the best parts about being human, our wonderfully unique and individualized appearances.

The perfect nose through the years

The earliest rhinoplasty procedures were primarily focused on altering ethnic features. In the years since the idea of perfection has changed. A number of factors may have influenced how the idea of perfection has been altered. Celebrities and their perfect noses can often be a deciding influence for many who are looking into rhinoplasty. While some may have been born with the perfect button nose, the reality is, that many of your favourite celebrities have undergone some sort of cosmetic surgery.

The idea of the perfect nose may change throughout the years, influenced by the society we grow up in and the celebrities that we admire.

Deciding what your perfect nose looks like

How do you determine what your perfect nose will be to complement your facial structure? During your consultation with your surgeon be sure to mention the areas of your nose that you’d like to change. Working with your surgeon, you’ll be able to decide what changes might help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

If there is a celebrity nose that you admire, you can always take in pictures so that your surgeon can get an idea of what you’re interested in. Keep in mind that there is no way to perfectly replicate the nose that someone else has. Your surgeon can only work with your unique facial structure and the nose you currently have.
