When deciding to have a life-changing plastic surgery procedure like rhinoplasty, it’s essential to choose an experienced plastic surgeon with a proven track record. What’s one of the best ways to tell if your surgeon has the skill and artistry to achieve your desired results? By viewing their gallery of rhinoplasty before and after photos.

Below, you can see a few of my real patient transformations, and I’ll discuss what you should look for in rhinoplasty before and after photos to help you select the right surgeon and achieve your desired results.

A droopy nasal tip combined with concerns about her dorsal hump brought this patient to our practice for rhinoplasty surgery. I performed intranasal rhinoplasty to address her concerns and improve her overall facial symmetry. Notice how balanced and natural her facial features look. When viewing nasal tip rhinoplasty before and after photos, it’s essential to look for subtle and natural-looking changes that help balance and enhance facial proportions.

Rhinoplasty Before and After: Female vs. Male

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nose jobs are one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among men and women. However, men and women usually have different goals and concerns regarding their rhinoplasty results. Men typically pursue aesthetic rhinoplasty to balance their features and achieve a stronger profile. Women, on the other hand, prefer to refine their nose for a more delicate result. Take, for example, the difference in my surgical approach with these patients:

This female patient felt her nose was “too big for her face.” She wished for a more petite nose and better facial symmetry. While her results demonstrate wide nose rhinoplasty before and after, her transformation also reflects how reducing the size of the nose can significantly soften and feminize your facial features.

Conversely, we helped this male patient enhance and sharpen his masculine facial contours while correcting a dorsal hump and droopy nasal tip. When viewing rhinoplasty before and after male plastic surgery photos, it’s essential to keep in mind that the male face is usually heavier and more square than the female face. As such, we may make the male tip of the nose broader and fuller than the female nose.

What Else To Look for in Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos

Here are some more critical factors to keep in mind when viewing your potential plastic surgeon’s rhinoplasty before and after photos. Remember, it’s essential to choose a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with demonstrated rhinoplasty expertise:

  • Diversity. Look for diversity and variety when scrolling through patient photos. An accomplished plastic surgeon should be able to showcase a wide assortment of results, including different aesthetic and medical concerns and patients of different genders, ages, and ethnicities.
  • Details. Impressive pictures aside, does the surgeon’s gallery include captions and details to help explain the patient’s transformation? Accompanying descriptions help give you a better and more accurate understanding of the results you’re viewing.
  • Angles. Does the surgeon showcase front-facing and profile rhinoplasty results? It’s helpful to view results from a variety of views and angles to get the most comprehensive and accurate idea of what type of results are attainable.
  • Harmony. Be on the lookout for patterns such as overly narrow bridges, pinched tips, or noses that are too upturned. An excessively narrow nose puts you at risk for potential nasal collapse or breathing problems, while an upturned or pinched tip tends to look surgical, not natural. You always want to strive for naturally balanced-looking rhinoplasty results.
