What Is Female Rhinoplasty?
Female rhinoplasty constitutes any type of nose job that addresses any cosmetic or functional concerns while simultaneously promoting a more feminine appearance. As there are nuanced distinctions between the male and female nose, it is necessary to use targeted nasal enhancements that meet the accepted aesthetic standards for the patient’s gender.
The ideal female nose is typically shorter and smaller, with a slightly scooped bridge and an upturned nasal tip. However, it is important to note that there is no “perfect” nose shape for female patients as the ideal nose for any specific person should be relative to their facial proportions. Thus, each nose reshaping procedure requires a custom approach to create a more delicate nasal structure that fits the patient’s facial features.
Before & After
Reasons To Undergo Female Rhinoplasty
A rhinoplasty or nose job solves a wide variety of nasal concerns, ranging from cosmetic issues (such as flared nostrils or a bulbous tip) to structural issues that cause recurrent breathing problems. But functional problems aside, a female nose job is performed to attain a more pleasing nose shape that fits the patient’s feminine facial features and creates a more attractive overall appearance.
This procedure helps improve or enhance the feminine aspects of the nose while addressing one or more of the following:
- Nasal asymmetry
- Oversized or undersized nose
- Dorsal hump deformity
- Nostrils that are too large or too small
- Other functional issues

Gender will always play a significant role in any type of facial plastic surgery. But while preserving or enhancing gender-related characteristics is an important requirement of the surgery, the main goal when working with the female nose is not simply to create a small, upturned nose, but to create unique aesthetic changes that will work well with the patient’s specific facial features.

Female Rhinoplasty Recovery & Side Effects
Rhinoplasty is normally performed as an outpatient procedure. The resulting downtime will vary depending on the complexity of the surgery performed, but in most cases, it is expected to be minimal. Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities within a week, but they are generally advised to wait several weeks before participating in strenuous activities.
After the surgery, you may experience mild to moderate pain and discomfort, which can be managed by taking the prescribed post-op medications. You may also notice some localized bruising and swelling, but these should gradually subside in the next few weeks or months.
Dr. Sedgh believes in providing patient-centered care throughout the entire postoperative period, which is why he will personally keep a constant stream of communication with the patient as they go through the recovery process. This is to ensure optimum healing and a more comfortable post-surgical experience. He will also monitor your recovery progress through regularly scheduled follow-up appointments, beginning on the first day after the procedure up to a year later.
