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. Think of Dick Tracey, the crime fighting cartoon character with an over-exaggerated “L-shaped” nose. 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. Many surgeons have worked solely on « bio » or “biological” women and men, and may not understand the particularities of a gender transition.
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.
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.
Post care, the nose will appear bruised and inflamed. Cotton gauzes are placed in the nostrils after the procedure to prevent bleeding, and are removed several hours later. One extremely important point to note is that it takes the nose approximately three to 6 months to fully form post-surgery.
