What makes a nose masculine or feminine

One request plastic surgeons sometimes get is for a nose job to make the nose look more “masculine” or “feminine.” This may seem strange, but if you’ve ever thought your own nose looks too heavy or too delicate, you’ll understand. Male skin tends to be a little bit thicker and more oily than female skin. This blunts some of the sharp angles and give the nose a less delicate appearance, which makes it harder for a surgeon to achieve precise results. The bridge of a man’s nose is usually straighter and more prominent than a woman’s. But it takes an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who has worked on thousands of different faces and has a strong enough sense of these differences to perform a nose job in just such a way that most people would say it gives the impression of being more masculine or feminine.
