When seeking a rhinoplasty surgery, patients often want the ideal nose based upon scientific and beauty principles. However, sometimes this is not always the best possible nose for that patient. Dr. Santos will discuss the best options for your nose job. Regardless, let’s look at the question, “What is an ideal female nose?”

In general, the ideal female nose is considered to be smaller and shorter than a male nose. It has a straight bridge with a slightly scooped appearance and an upturned nose tip. Specifically, the ideal nose tips up at a 106-degree angle. Obviously, this specific angle is difficult to achieve, even with surgery.

With all of that said, the exact angle of the nose tip, size, and shape of the nose will all vary based on your other facial features. People with a longer, oval-shaped face may have a slightly longer nose than what would be considered “ideal”. However, this fits their facial features, and shortening it would lead to a worse cosmetic result.

Dr. Santos will work with you to determine what the ideal nose looks like based on your features and needs. To schedule a consultation, call us at 206-430-1035. You can also reach out online via chat, contact form, or Price Simulator.
