In operations performed on men the nose needs not to be made much smaller, the tip must not be tilted up too much, the bridge of the nose must not be too hollowed, it must go down straight and when necessary a slight bridge should be left to maintain the masculine look. While the angle between lip and nose is normally 105 on women the goal on men is to make this angle 90 degrees or in other words straight. Rather than changing the whole nose like women want, men usually want to change areas on the nose that bother them.
