Why is it more difficult to operate a meaty nose?
Most people know that the size and shape of their nose is determined by the underlying structures of the nose. Therefore, rhinoplasty focuses on changing the shape of the skeleton and cartilage of the nose. However, if the nose has thick skin, the surgery is more difficult for the doctor to achieve the desired results.
If your skin is neither too thin nor too thick and has a smooth and healthy color, there will be no limit to the changes. On the other hand, if your skin is too thick or too thin, there may be limitations on the final result of rhinoplasty.
What can affect skin thickness?
The skin on your nose is thicker and has more collagen than the skin anywhere else on your body. Here are some factors that can affect skin thickness:
The thickness of the skin on your nose is largely determined by your genetics/ethnicity.

As you age, the elasticity of the skin decreases due to the loss of collagen and other factors such as sun damage and other forms of skin damage. As a result, you start to develop wrinkles and sagging skin on your face, including your nose.
3. Sun exposure
As you know, too much exposure to the sun can damage your skin, including the skin on your nose. The sun’s UV rays thin your skin, destroy collagen and elastin, and as a result lose elasticity and firmness. As the skin on your nose thins, you may notice wrinkles, blemishes, and sagging.
4. Scar wound
The skin on your nose can also lose thickness due to scarring from acne or other injuries.

Does thick skin affect rhinoplasty?

In general, men’s noses have thicker skin than women’s. Thin skin can be caused by overexposure to the sun, genetics, and aging. Some medications may cause thinning of the skin.
