Rhinoplasty is a procedure to help balance the nose among the other features and correct imperfections in the tip, bridge, and nostrils. Improved breathing and enhanced structural integrity are often welcomed byproducts of cosmetic nose surgery as well.
While many of the aesthetic goals for rhinoplasty will be the same regardless of gender, there are subtle differences between female and male anatomy that a plastic surgeon will need to respect and acknowledge in order to produce an elegant, beautiful outcome.
Female rhinoplasty may be performed to reduce an overly large or prominent nose, with the intended outcome being a softer, more feminine profile. That being said, rhinoplasty is always tailored to the patient’s unique objectives and aesthetic sensibilities.
There are multiple reasons why a woman may choose to pursue cosmetic rhinoplasty. She may wish to address a bulbous, upturned, or drooping tip; correct a prominent dorsal hump; improve nasal symmetry; reshape the nostrils; or simply obtain a nose that is better suited to her face. As a side benefit of rhinoplasty, breathing may improve, and structural concerns, such as a deviated septum, can be addressed by the surgeon at the same time as cosmetic issues.
As a double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Fechner’s deep understanding of anatomy and physiology allows him to make elegant changes that honor each patient’s individuality while correcting the aspects of the nose that cause self-consciousness. He will masterfully deliver a result that heightens the patient’s femininity while preserving her unique beauty and cultural heritage.
A female rhinoplasty with Dr. Fechner can achieve the following:
Patients pursuing rhinoplasty should be finished with their nasal growth, which typically happens for girls at around age 15 or 16. They should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are not currently dealing with any uncontrolled medical concerns that might interfere with their treatment or recovery. As with any cosmetic undertaking, realistic expectations are imperative. Dr. Fechner will determine each patient’s candidacy during their private consultation and physical evaluation, ensuring that the surgery can be safely and effectively performed.
Downtime after female rhinoplasty will depend on the extent of the work performed and the complexity of the techniques used. After surgery, patients will need to be escorted home by a friend or family member. Dr. Fechner will provide prescriptions for pain medications as well as antibiotics and anti-nausea pills. These will help manage side effects, such as swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which typically reach their peak in the first week and then subside gradually over the coming weeks and months.
Dr. Fechner’s detailed aftercare plan will include instructions on bathing, sleeping, wound care, resuming exercise, and returning to work. He will see you for regular follow-up visits and will carefully monitor your progress, ensuring a seamless and stress-free recovery timeline.

On behalf of the entire team at Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we would like to take a moment to say thank you again for your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. The past several months have been unlike anything we've ever experienced, and we're working hard to evolve so that we can continue to provide you with the patient experience you have come to expect from our practice.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility. Our surgical center and medical spa remain committed to providing the best patient care, and we are actively working to take all necessary precautions as we plan to safely re-open our practice. Please help us continue to protect the health and well-being of our patients and workplace by cooperating with all of our precautionary measures and protocols against COVID-19 at your next appointment, or as you plan for your surgery.
As a fully accredited surgical facility, Fechner MD has always observed the highest level of safety and sanitation. In fact, as a surgeon, Dr. Fechner is an expert in infection control. We want to ensure that we are doing everything possible for our patients to safely return for surgical and medical spa treatments alike.
The upgraded work flow and safety protocols we have implemented at Fechner MD far exceed those being recommended by any government agency.
Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
We thank you in advance for your patience throughout this time, and we look forward to seeing you here again as we begin to resume business operations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa at (508) 754-4000 and our team will gladly assist you. Thank you!
