Nasal analysis is where a series of measures are taken to help see how a nose compares to an ideal nose. While this may provide both the patient and surgeon with some useful information, it definitely should not be interpreted as cold hard science or facts. These angles are meant merely to serve as a guide. In fact, some of the angles and measures are disputed by surgeons, myself included. It serves a purpose in communication amongst surgeons and patients. A beautiful nose can not be created by formula and needs an artistic vision and collaboration between surgeon and patient.
