Do Men Get Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for men. Last year rhinoplasty topped the charts as the most popular procedure for men with 53,000 rhinoplasties performed in the U.S. during 2015. Breathe easier and look better with this popular procedure for men.
What Does the Ideal Male Nose Look Like?
There is no one-size-fits-all perfect nose for men. Dr. Sajjadian believes that rhinoplasty is an art form, one that must carefully balance the appearance of the nose with the other facial features. An ideal male nose should fit the face, be in proportion with the other features, and look natural. Often an ideal male nose has some flatness to the dorsum (roof), but this can vary. During your consultation, Dr. Sajjadian will discuss your ideal nose. He often uses computer imaging to illustrate potential options and to ease communication between surgeon and patient.
What’s the Minimum Age for Male Rhinoplasty?
Men can receive rhinoplasty once their nose has reached its full adult size. This often occurs during the teen years, around 16-17. Females typically reach their adult nasal size earlier, at about 15-16.
I Can’t Miss Much Work. What’s Recovery Like After Male Rhinoplasty?
Recovery times for male rhinoplasty are similar to other rhinoplasty operations. Most patients miss about a week from work. We’ll talk specifics for your situation during your consultation. The type of job you have and the extent of your rhinoplasty can have an impact in how much time you’ll need off from work. During your recovery it is very important that you avoid strenuous activities (like lifting and bending) and that you keep your head elevated, even when you sleep.
Some men can achieve excellent results with non-surgical nasal correction. This procedure uses dermal fillers to shape and sculpt the nose without surgery. Results are temporary and can be maintained with regular retreatment. Non-invasive correction isn’t right for every patient, but it may be ideal for correcting specific aesthetic issues in those that can’t afford the downtime of surgery.
I’m Not Caucasian. Do I Need Ethnic Rhinoplasty?
Nasal structure can vary extensively from patient to patient and from ethnicity to ethnicity. If you’re thinking about rhinoplasty and come from a non-Caucasian genetic background, you need to consider ethnic rhinoplasty. Surgeons with experience in ethnic rhinoplasty are more aware of the unique structural needs that ethnic noses may possess and can use advanced rhinoplasty techniques to achieve natural looking, balanced results.
