The Cute Nose

There tend to be several aspects in rhinoplasty that help to define what many people call a “cute” nose. I often encounter patients who have a nose that can be very appealing to begin with. Subtle changes in the relationship of two key characteristics are helpful in producing a nose that is “cuter” and more “youthful”.

The first relationship is the angle of the nose from the upper lip. This angle is called the nasolabial angle. Slightly increasing the nasolabial angle can give the nose a more “cute” or “youthful” appearance. Another more subtle characteristic is the amount of tip projection or the distance the nose projects from the face. Slightly decreasing the projection can give the nose a “smaller” more youthful appearance.
