Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
According to a recent study published by the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Yale University School of Medicine, ideal nasal aesthetics are no longer believed to be consistent in every part of the world. With these new developments, Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, believes that providing patients with customizable surgeries is the most appropriate way to achieve ideal nasal beauty.
“For years, people have been searching for exact measurements of beauty and for ways to determine what is precisely beautiful. With the developments brought forward in this new research, it’s clear that there is no universal parameter,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
The study used computerized images of models where nasal widths, tips, roots, and dorsums could be altered. Upon compiling the varying images, a survey was sent to more than 13,000 plastic surgeons and individuals in 50 countries world-wide. All test subjects were asked to respond by ranking the perceived beauty of the model in every image. Upon breaking down the newly collected information according to geographic regions, the study found that different parts of the world had different ideals of nasal attractiveness. In Latin America and the Caribbean, a smaller and narrower nose was considered most attractive, while other regions thought the opposite.
“I perform both primary and revision rhinoplasty procedures for women and men from all over the world. Rhinoplasty’s must be uniquely tailored to each patient in order to achieve facial balance and harmony, as not everyone has the same nose and facial structure,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Interestingly, the study also found that plastic surgeons and the general population had a much different idea of nasal attractiveness, where surgeons preferred a wider nasal base with a more projected nasal dorsi and tip.
“When I meet with a patient to discuss rhinoplasty, I make sure to listen to their goals, as all surgeons should, without pressing my ideas too much. With my surgical expertise combined with their idea of beauty, an aesthetically pleasing nose can be achieved,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery and is recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
