A Man’s Guide to Rhinoplasty

Are you a man considering rhinoplasty? This procedure is one of the most common male plastic surgery procedures, with 55,000 nose reshaping surgeries having been performed on male patients in 2014. If you’re considering male rhinoplasty, this guide will walk you through some common questions male patients face. For personalized advice, call and schedule your consultation with Dr. Sajjadian to learn how rhinoplasty can benefit you.

How Is Male Rhinoplasty Different than Female Rhinoplasty?

The basic procedure for rhinoplasty on a male or female patient is similar, but the desired end result is not the same. For women, Dr. Sajjadian strives to create a smaller, feminine nose, but the optimal nose for male patients is typically larger, stronger, and more masculine. Male noses also tend to have a lower tip and a wider bridge than female noses.

Choosing a surgeon who has a strong understanding of male and female facial anatomy is important when preparing for rhinoplasty. The ideal nose for women is not the same as for men. You need a surgeon who will create a nose that complements your other facial features. It can be helpful to find photographs of male noses you find attractive, as this will give Dr. Sajjadian a better idea of your ideal nose.

What Qualifications Should I Look for in a Rhinoplasty Surgeon?

Male patients considering this procedure should look for a surgeon who has experience performing male rhinoplasty surgeries. Look for a highly skilled, board certified surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. Ask to see photos of their work, particularly of male patients.

Dr. Sajjadian is a triple board certified plastic surgeon with a passion for rhinoplasty. He is a member of the Rhinoplasty Society and is known around the world for his natural looking ethnic rhinoplasty results.

He has authored over 75 book chapters, manuscripts, and abstracts on plastic surgery. Dr. Sajjadian has also lectured on various techniques on a national and international level, and is widely considered to be an expert in Caucasian and ethnic rhinoplasty for both males and females.

How Do I Prepare for Rhinoplasty?

Male patients often want to know how rhinoplasty will impact their lives and careers. In general, you’ll need some time off of work, but the amount of time needed can vary greatly depending on the changes made to your nose. One of the best ways to prepare for surgery is to come in for a consultation. Learn about your options and find out how rhinoplasty will impact you. Then you can determine if rhinoplasty is right for you.
