The aesthetics of the face are often said to be in the eye of the beholder, but some aspects appear to be accepted universally.It is not possible to enhance a nose cosmetically without understanding of nasal anatomy,patient aspirations,available techniques and possible ethnic characters,cultural trends & surgical pitfalls. It is said that if Cleopatra’s nose would have been less sharp;world history Would have been different.
Concepts of beauty cannot be defined scientifically. They change ethnically, regionwise, societywise. They Change from time to time.
Aesthetics of nose
In our society,young people want nose to be straight, long,narrow with sharp pointed tip if possible.it is very important to remember that cosmetic surgery can improve/enhance your looks but it cannot change your face totally to look like some actress or actor whom you adore.
From the side, the bridge is straight in the male and may be straight or have a mild sloping in the female. The tip comes straight out or has a slight upturn. From the side, the tip makes a 100 degree angle with the upper lipThe tip is no wider than the bridge. From the front, the bridge is well-defined. The nose is straight and symmetrical . The outer skin of the nostrils is no wider than the inner corners of the eye. The shape of the skin that forms the nostrils has a roundness that compliments the tip. The tip is defined. The edges of cartilage bring it to a clear point. COMMENT: In no other structure than the nose are the rules of beauty so variable. In general, the smaller the nose the better. Classically, the nose is meant to breath and not be seen. We adorn the eyes and the lips to increase their beauty, but the nose is not considered a center of beauty. Again, ethnic variations and different characteristics may lend unique positive qualities to different noses. Exceptions to these rules are common.
