Latest Tends in Nose Aesthetics

We are experiencing a very rapid development in every branch of science. As human beings gain experience in every subject, their perspective and approach to events change.

In fact, the situation is not much different in nose surgeries. Thanks to the analysis of the long-term results of previous surgeries, we see that the point of view in rhinoplasty operations, both technically and philosophically, has changed considerably and many innovations have emerged.
These innovations occur not only in the field of science, but also in fashion, design and art. The fashionable clothes, hairstyles, make-up methods and sense of beauty of the 1960s are very different from today’s. Likewise, the aesthetic understanding of the 1960s is quite different from today’s.
The anatomical knowledge and surgical techniques of 40 years ago were not as extensive and diverse as today. Similarly, aesthetic philosophy was far from now. If we compare the cover models of the 1960’s fashion magazines with the model pictures of today’s magazines, what I mean can be understood much more easily.
In the 1960s, a beautiful nose was an understanding of “no matter how small a percentage is”. At that time, the boat nose was in fashion and the more hollow the nose back, the more beautiful it was. It was made so upturned that the nostrils were visible when viewed from the front. These operations were generally performed with a closed technique, and noses were performed in the years when techniques based on removing excess cartilage and bone from the nose were popular.
Just as the trends in fashion have changed over time, the understanding in rhinoplasty has also started to change. Today, as a result of the development of surgical anatomical knowledge and the long-term results of previous operation techniques, rhinoplasty techniques and operation results have evolved and survived until today.
The new trend is now natural, face-matched noses that don’t look like they’ve been operated on, have a nose ridge at the appropriate angle, not overly raised. In my opinion, the sine qua non of a successful nose surgery is a non-surgical appearance and the new nose to look as natural as possible on the patient’s face.
In the new understanding of rhinoplasty, shadows and natural reflections of light on the nose gained importance. The smooth look of the transition between the eyebrow and the nose to the tip of the nose, which we call “double shadow”, gave the nose a much more natural look.
Starting from the right eyebrow line, continuing from the ridge of the nose and joining with the imaginary line coming from the left eyebrow in the same way at the tip of the nose, ending as an elliptical light beam at the tip of the nose, when viewed as a whole, the nose looks incredibly natural and in harmony with the other structures of the face.

In this new rhinoplasty trend, the ideal nose, tip and back appear as a single structure, not as separate structures, the angle of the nasal ridge is within reasonable limits, the shadowing and reflections created by the light on the nose show smooth transitions, the brow-nose imaginary line is smooth double shadow. We can define noses as natural and compatible with the face, in which the light falling on the tip of the nose creates an elliptical reflection at the tip of the nose.
