Personalized Rhinoplasty

Male Rhinoplasty

DR. JACK P. GUNTER: A male nose is certainly different from female noses. And in general the male nose is a stronger looking nose than the females and it usually has a straight bridge. It’s got a tip that is more projecting than the female has and the length of the nose looks a little bit longer in an up and down direction. Whereas a female’s nose is more turned up, the tip is slightly more turned up, the bridge is lower, and the tip usually sticks out a little bit more than the bridge does, and in general looks a little bit softer. The main thing, though, in either a male or female nose is to keep it natural appearing and be sure that it’s functioning properly after the rhinoplasty.

Teen Rhinoplasty

It’s important for teens to be physically & mentally ready for rhinoplasty.

DR. SPENCER COCHRAN: Rhinoplasty is a common procedure that young adults and teenagers contemplate. And we see a large number of rhinoplasty patients who are in their teens at our practice. While there’s not any specific age cut off or requirement for rhinoplasty, it is important that patient’s be both physically and emotionally mature to undergo rhinoplasty. This is something that needs to be evaluated on a case by case basis. It’s also important that there be an open dialogue between the patients, the parents, and the doctor. This ensures that the motivations and expectations for surgery are all in agreement.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

DR. JACK P. GUNTER: Ethnic rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty for the different races. And in Dallas the type of ethnic rhinoplasty that we usually perform are for African Americans, Asians, mid-easterners. Each one of these races have common traits and characteristics of their noses. And one of the things you always are concerned about is whether the, how much of the ethnicity the patient wants to keep. You know? They don’t want to be changed too much but yet they want something changed.

So the main thing about ethnic rhinoplasty is you have to have a very good consultation with them. And to really get down and talk about exactly what they want, because you know some people with the same deformities won’t want the same thing. So that’s the main thing in ethnic rhinoplasty. We do a lot of ethnic rhinoplasties and you know they’re very happy, as long as both sides know what we’re trying to achieve. And so that’s what I, that’s what we think is the most important thing, is to individualize the operation for them and try to get them exactly what they want.
