Nose recontouring is also called rhinoplasty. After trachea shave, nose reshaping is probably the most common facial procedure for FFS patients in Mexico. Because the nose is in the middle of the face, it can often make a intense difference. It tends to make the eyes look larger, bring out the cheekbones and add delicacy to the overall facial impression.

Feminizing rhinoplasty is one of the key procedures in Facial feminization Surgery. The nose becomes the center of attention over other facial features and is a major gender marker. Attractive female noses are smaller than those of men, in all aspects. The bridge tends to be narrower and straighter, or to have a gentle curvature. Usually the tips are more sharply defined than those of a male nose.

There are sexual differences in the angles formed where the nose meets other facial areas. If you are thinking about getting feminization surgery on your forehead, it is advisable to get surgery on your nose at the same time so these adjacent facial features get a harmonious and naturally female continuity.

Rhinoplasty Defined

RHINOPLASTY in Mexico creates a smaller nose to give it a clear feminine outline and proportion. Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as nose-reshaping, improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence.

Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Procedure for Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery in Mexico is typically performed by making an incision under the nose, between the nostrils to introduce changes to the cartilage and the bony ridge. Rhinoplasty is also employed to correct a deviated septum (hole between the nostrils) or can correct certain breathing problems by widening nasal passages.

In some cases, the surgeon will insert a permanent form in the nose to help maintain the shape.

Alarplasty is employed to narrow the nostrils by making two incisions at the base of their wings.

Recovery Stages

After your nose surgery procedure in Mexico is completed, a splint, internal tubes or packing will likely be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.

The bruises under the eyes usually get more intense the first two or three days after Feminizing Rhinoplasty. During the healing process cold compresses are very helpful. Definite results will be fully appreciated between 6 and 12 months or later. The tip is the area that takes longer to acquire its final shape.

Some sporadic bleeding could be expected during a week or ten days, but this is normal and you should not be worried.


All the incisions remain well hidden inside the nose, except those made on the base of the nose wings when an alarplasty is considered necessary to reduce the width of the nostrils. However, the scarring on this type of facial skin is very good and the scars are small, so they should become unnoticeable shortly.

Risks and Side Effects

Certain risks are assumed with every surgery, however, it is very unlikely for a feminizing rhinoplasty to present any complications when performed by a qualified facial feminization surgeon in Mexico.

The decision to have nose surgery is extremely personal and you’ll have to decide if the benefits will fulfill your goals and if the risks and potential complications are acceptable.

Possible risks of nose surgery include:

  • Rupture of small surface vessels of the nose
  • Infection
  • Bleeding (hematoma)
  • Nose asymmetry
  • Cardiac and pulmonary complications can occur in longer surgical procedures and may be associated with the formation of, or increase in, blood clots in the venous system
  • Change in skin sensation (numbness)
  • Nasal airway alterations may occur after a rhinoplasty or septoplasty that may interfere with normal passage of air through the nose
  • Nasal septal perforation (a hole in the nasal septum) may develop but is rare; additional surgical treatment may be necessary to repair the nasal septum but in some cases, it may be impossible to correct this complication

Benefits of Rhinoplasty in Mexico

The new contours of your nose may be apparent as soon as swelling subsides. But although the initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contour to fully refine.
