Nose Reshaping – Rhinoplasty

 Rhinoplasty is an important part of the feminization journey. There are stark differences between the genders, as males have larger and wider shaped noses with longer nostrils, and generally, bulkier tips. In addition, male noses tend to point forward or down, as opposed to women whose noses tend to point slightly upwards.

Moreover, the angle between the nose and the forehead and the nose and the upper lip tend to be more defined and sharper with men. Lastly, imperfections such as dorsal bumps could be easily corrected during the surgery.

Although this may read as a common procedure, with trans patients, the surgeon has to create a feminized nose that fits the measurements of a redefined face. 

Dr. Bensimon has had years of experience with the trans community, and strives to work with his patients to ensure that their nose will appear completely, 100% natural. Feminizing rhinoplasty carries some subtle differences from a standard rhinoplasty and takes many years to master.

Dr. Bensimon also practices a technique called open rhinoplasty, which offers far more control and precision than closed rhinoplasty. Dr. Bensimon could explain this process in greater detail during the FFS consultation.

We have introduced in the past few years the ultrasonic rhinoplasty technique also known as the Piezzorhinoplasty. We essentially use a high frequency ultrasound micros for better outcome and less bruising.

Post care, the nose will appear middly swollen and inflamed. Cotton gauzes are placed in the nostrils after the procedure and are removed 24 hours later. One extremely important point to note is that it takes the nose approximately three to 6 months to fully form post-surgery.
