Rhinoplasty is a procedure to help balance the nose among the other features and correct imperfections in the tip, bridge, and nostrils. Improved breathing and enhanced structural integrity are often welcomed byproducts of cosmetic nose surgery as well.

While many of the aesthetic goals for rhinoplasty will be the same regardless of gender, there are subtle differences between female and male anatomy that a plastic surgeon will need to respect and acknowledge in order to produce an elegant, beautiful outcome.

Female rhinoplasty may be performed to reduce an overly large or prominent nose, with the intended outcome being a softer, more feminine profile. That being said, rhinoplasty is always tailored to the patient’s unique objectives and aesthetic sensibilities.

Why Undergo Female Rhinoplasty?

There are multiple reasons why a woman may choose to pursue cosmetic rhinoplasty. She may wish to address a bulbous, upturned, or drooping tip; correct a prominent dorsal hump; improve nasal symmetry; reshape the nostrils; or simply obtain a nose that is better suited to her face. As a side benefit of rhinoplasty, breathing may improve, and structural concerns, such as a deviated septum, can be addressed by the surgeon at the same time as cosmetic issues.

What Are The Benefits?

As a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Fechner’s deep understanding of anatomy and physiology allows him to make elegant changes that honor each patient’s individuality while correcting the aspects of the nose that cause self-consciousness. He will masterfully deliver a result that heightens the patient’s femininity while preserving her unique beauty and cultural heritage.

A female rhinoplasty with Dr. Fechner can achieve the following:

  • A more delicate, proportionate nose
  • A more elegant, feminine profile
  • Improved facial balance and symmetry
  • Enhanced nasal function
  • Direction of the gaze towards the eyes and the smile
  • A boost in self-confidence

Who Is An Ideal Candidate?

Patients pursuing rhinoplasty should be finished with their nasal growth, which typically happens for girls at around age 15 or 16. They should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are not currently dealing with any uncontrolled medical concerns that might interfere with their treatment or recovery. As with any cosmetic undertaking, realistic expectations are imperative. Dr. Fechner will determine each patient’s candidacy during their private consultation and physical evaluation, ensuring that the surgery can be safely and effectively performed.

What Are The Different Types Of Female Rhinoplasties?

  • Cosmetic rhinoplasty — Cosmetic rhinoplasty can be performed to address the nasal contours, improving the look of a dorsal hump, narrowing nostrils that are too wide, reshaping the nasal tip, or providing increased nasal symmetry.
  • Functional rhinoplasty — Functional rhinoplasty is performed to enhance the patient’s breathing, correcting structural concerns, such as a deviated septum. In many cases, cosmetic rhinoplasty can address both form and function at the same time.
  • Revision rhinoplasty — If the patient’s goals were not achieved with primary nose surgery, a revision procedure can be performed to adjust the inner and outer aspects of the nose. Patients should typically wait one year before embarking on a revision to allow any residual swelling to completely abate.
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty — Ethnic rhinoplasty is performed in order to carefully preserve the patient’s unique ethnic and cultural heritage while still improving the appearance of the nose. Results are customized to reflect the client’s innate understanding of what is beautiful and elegant.

What Are The Different Surgical Techniques Used By Dr. Fechner?

  • Open rhinoplasty — During open rhinoplasty, a small, inconspicuous incision is created at the base of the nose across the columella, allowing the surgeon optimal access to the internal structures of the nose. This approach is ideal when in-depth changes to the bridge, tip, and nostrils are required.
  • Closed rhinoplasty — With closed rhinoplasty, incisions are created inside the nose where they are unseen. This technique is used when only minimal cosmetic changes are required. It cannot be used to correct concerns related to the nasal tip or the bridge.

What Will My Recovery Entail?

Downtime after female rhinoplasty will depend on the extent of the work performed and the complexity of the techniques used. After surgery, patients will need to be escorted home by a friend or family member. Dr. Fechner will provide prescriptions for pain medications as well as antibiotics and anti-nausea pills. These will help manage side effects, such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which typically reach their peak in the first week and then subside gradually over the coming weeks and months.

Dr. Fechner’s detailed aftercare plan will include instructions on bathing, sleeping, wound care, resuming exercise, and returning to work. He will see you for regular follow-up visits and will carefully monitor your progress, ensuring a seamless and stress-free recovery timeline.
