Key in Highlighting the Difference Between Male & Female Facial Rejuvenation
In Aesthetic Rejuvenation procedures, it is important for doctors to make precise judgement on the type and kind of procedures to do based on each patient's facial features. Hence, this is especially crucial for doctors to comprehend the clear distinction in sexual dimorphism, since the facial structures of males and females differs are less obvious. There has been a noticeable increasing trend in males seeking for non-surgical procedures to enhance their features and to seek for a more youthful appearance. Therefore, in this week's newsletter we are comparing on 2 prominent features between males and females mainly the Forehead and Nose region. This would help increase the accuracy of current aesthetic practitioner's skills in producing a more natural appearance for both female and male patients.
With respect to the differences highlighted above, the techniques that are used on female patients such as revolumization or brow lifting may result in a feminised and unnatural appearance when used injudiciously on a male patient.
Tips on male forehead rejuvenation
Therefore, when doctors are approaching male forehead, it is advisable to elevate a ptotic brow with neuromodulation and fillers if required, but endeavour to lift no more than the supraorbital ridge.
Extensive bossed forehead is a clear indication of volume loss and should be corrected. Doctors should take note and allow a small element of bossing that corresponds to the patient's natural contour to achieve a more natural looking appearance.
Tips for Nose rejuvenation for males & females
In this article, we would be focusing on 2 main angles of the nose which is the Nasofrontal angle, which is the angle of the radix, the lowest point on the nasal bridge and is form by a line running from the radix to the labella, and from the radix along the dorsal on the nose. This angle is greater in females than males with an average of 138 degrees for female and 130 degrees for males.
For the female, the radix should be at the lash line and for male, it should be at the level of tarsal fold and more confluent with the glabella. When performing rhino modulation with toxins and fillers it is important to respect these angles as beautification does not typically involve masculinisation of female feature or vice versa.
The second angle is the Nasolabial angle which is the angle between a line drawn from the lip border to the base of columella, and a line drawn from the base of the columella to the nasal tip. This ideal male angle has been described as 97 degrees while the female ideal angle is 105.9 degrees.
After reading this week's newsletter, we hope that our readers take away some key tips and knowledge on treating male and female patients. Therefore, we hope that more experienced doctors would continue to advocate the emphasis on the different facial needs of different patients. This allows them to provide a better procedure that cater to specific individual patient's needs in achieving the youthful appearance they want.
