Abstract

Nose morphology and facial features depend on ethnicity, gender and environmental conditions. Nasal parameters for rhinoplasty are well defined in the European and American population. Though rhinoplasty is a common cosmetic surgery in India, till now, there is no dedicated study delineating the parameters for the Indian Rhinoplasty. The aim of this study is to determine and delineate the anthropometric measurements of the Indian male and female noses and to propose the nasal parameters for Indian rhinoplasty. To determine the aesthetically pleasing nasal anthropometric parameters in Indian males and females and to put forth the parameters for Indian Rhinoplasty. This anthropometric study included a volunteer sample of 221 young, good-looking Indian males and females aged 18–25 years with Indian parents and no history of previous surgery or trauma to the nose. Standardized frontal, lateral and basal photographs of the noses along with the reference scale were taken, and 11 standard anthropometric measurements of the nose were determined. The sample size selected was such that it included representative population from the north south east and west zones of India. All the nasal measurements for the Indian women and men were found to be significantly different from the other European standards. In our study, we measured the nasal average values of the good looking, young Indian males and females and compared with the results of the nasal parameters of the other populations found in the literature. This study is the first one to propose the aesthetic average nasal parameters for corrective rhinoplasty in Indian population. Level of Evidence IV.
