Stephen Jay Gould has noted that larger noses are less neotenous , especially the large " Grecian " nose.  Women have smaller noses than men due to not having increased secretion of testosterone in adolescence.  Smaller noses, along with other neotenous features such as large eyes and full lips, are generally considered more attractive on women.  Werner syndrome , a condition that causes the appearance of premature aging, causes a "bird-like" appearance due to pinching of the nose  while, conversely, Down syndrome , a neotenizing condition,  causes flattening of the nose.  However, it looks more youthful and attractive.
