This Pittsburgh rhinoplasty patient was not happy with his high dorsum, the tip of his nose was rotated up a little too much, and his tip was a little bulbous.
The surgery nicely reduced the height of his dorsum, without causing a feminized nose by overly reducing the nasal bridge. With male rhinoplasty it’s very important to maintain a strong nasal bridge. Even in female patients, modern rhinoplasty doesn’t aim for the “scooped out” look that was popular in decades past. Today we strive for a more refined, by totally unoperated look. This approach also helps with optimizing nasal breathing after rhinoplasty.
This view gives a nice look at the more harmonious nasal bridge and tip. After the surgery the nose is no longer a distraction from the other aspects of his face.
Another nice view on the smoothed nasal bridge. Please also note that the nasal tip has been brought slightly closer to the face, giving a more balanced proportion. Finally, the angle at the nasal spine (the angle between the upper lip and the base of the nose) has been made crisper and less rounded.
