Situated on the center of your face, your nose plays an important role in your facial balance and symmetry. It affects your overall beauty and appearance, and can make your face look more or less attractive. This is why, ideally, you want your nose to blend in with the rest of your facial features and not to stand out too much.
What determines nose shape and size?
Genetics mainly influence the shape or the size of nose you’re born with. In fact, according to studies, there are four genes that affect your nose’s width and pointiness. Below are the other things that cause variations in the shape and overall appearance of your nose.
- The climate you’re in – According to studies, the climate you’re raised in or the environment your ancestors grew up in can affect the shape of your nose. Wide nostrils with broader, shorter noses are common in warm-humid climates. Long and narrower noses, meanwhile, are common in cold and dry climates.
- Aging – Just like the rest of your body, your nose is also covered in skin. It can lose its strength and structure with age due to decline in collagen and elastin. This may cause the nose to stretch and sag downward.
- Injuries – These may occur during sports, fights, or accidents. Nose injuries may cause bleeding or bruising, or in some cases, they can also alter the size and shape of the nose.
What are the common concerns associated with nose shape/size?
When a nose looks small, big, or just draws too much attention, it can affect the harmony of your facial features, as well as your attractiveness. Here are the most common cosmetic concerns regarding the nose.
- Nose bumps and curves – those with pronounced bumps on their nose wish to make them less noticeable or just refine the overall shape of the nose.
- Low nasal bridge – people who have a flat or low nasal bridge often want to increase the height of their nose bridge or reshape the nasal bridge.
- Crookedness – with slight crookedness, the desire is often to straighten it and improve how the nose looks.
- Irregularities and asymmetry – the main goal is to correct irregularities in the nose to create a regular shape and improve the symmetry of the nose.
- Small defects from a nose job – dermal fillers can be used to make small revisions or corrections for patients who are not happy with the results of a surgical rhinoplasty.
Even slight changes or alterations in the shape of the nose can affect your attractiveness and overall appearance. Aesthetically improving the nose, furthermore, helps create balance and harmony with other facial features.
