In an article posted in the dailymail.co.uk published on the 12th of July 2011, a well-documented research conducted by Professor Abraham Tamir, stated there are 14 types of noses – The Snub, The Duchess, The Fleshy, The Hawk, The Mirren, The Greek, The Roman, The aquiline, The Rumpole, The Celestial, The Lenin, The Redknapp, The Nixon and lastly The Tara.
Each type of nose has its distinct description and interestingly reflects the character of the individuals.
We believe there is no ONE specific nose shape that is perfect for all individuals. A nose shape suitable for another person/celebrity may not be the nose shape for your face. All features ought to fit harmoniously with each other, taking into account facial proportions.
However, there are certain aesthetic angles that influence an ideal nose shape for a face. It is globally accepted that an ideal shape is a nose that falls under these guidelines
- The angle between the forehead and nose should be 115-130°.
- The angle between the base of nose and upper lip should be 95-105°
- The nose should be narrow and nose tip not too bulbous
Most of our clients seeking to correct or enhance their nose shapes, are usually those with a flat nose bridge and/or flat nose tip. We do come across clients with a hump on the nasal bridge, which makes the nose look beak-like with a crooked line from the side profile. Most of them dislike their bulbous tip as well.
GEM clinic offers minimally invasive solutions as well as rhinoplasty. We offer clients minimally invasive treatments such as Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Radiesse and threads to increase the height and projection of the nose, both nasal bridge and tip. More complicated cases will be referred to our plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty.
Treating noses with fillers or threads are usually lunch time procedures. The procedure usually takes less than 1 hour with minimal downtime. You can continue your daily activities immediately after the procedure.
It is vital to understand & accept the natural congenital shape of your nose in order to have realistic expectations to achieve satisfactory results when consulting a doctor, should you desire to enhance/augment your nose shape.
Our clients have loved the outcome of their treatment here with us. They walk out more confidently and beaming with a smile, admiring their new nose shape as they walk pass a mirror.
