A More Feminine Nose
The nose is one of the most prominent facial features in both men and women. When a person transitions from male to female, an important part of this transition may be getting her nose cosmetically reshaped so that it does not look as masculine.
Having a masculine nose can affect a woman’s self-image and confidence, especially if her nose is not proportionate to the rest of her face.
There are distinct and obvious differences between male and female noses. Generally, men have a larger, more angular nose with a wider and straighter bridge, while women usually have a narrower nose with a nasal tip that points upwards.
While people may not notice these features immediately when looking at any person, they all contribute heavily to how we perceive the appearance of another person as a whole. This is where rhinoplasty for male-to-female transgender surgery comes in.
During this procedure, skilled and experienced plastic surgeon Mr. Inglefield reconstructs the nose to make it look more feminine. It is reshaped and refined in any way required to produce a look that aligns with the patient’s aesthetic goals.
What Is MTF Rhinoplasty Like?
The procedure for rhinoplasty in male-to-female transgender surgery is one that requires a lot of skill and years of experience. This is because the nose needs to be proportionate and match the rest of the newly feminized face, especially the forehead.
The nose and the forehead are two facial features that are linked not only in structure but in aesthetic harmony. If the two are not proportionate to each other, it can have a negative effect on the overall appearance of the individual.
The MTF rhinoplasty procedure includes reducing the size of the nose and changing its shape so that it can look more feminine. This means that it will be narrower, which is usually achieved by narrowing the nose’s internal structure or by moving the nasal cartilages.
A drooping nasal tip can also be altered to point upwards, giving it a more delicate and feminine appearance.
If this kind of rhinoplasty is performed in combination with other surgeries that alter the chin, jaw, or brows, the procedure can last several hours.
The Benefits of MTF Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty in male-to-female transgender surgery offers a number of benefits:
- Gives transwomen the feminine nose they were always meant to have
- Can help you be more comfortable with your appearance after the transition
- Can correct crooked, angular, asymmetrical noses that may not only be unappealing but can also cause breathing problems
- Gives you a nose that is more proportionate to the rest of your facial features
