Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Male Rhinoplasty

Did you know that rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, was the most common plastic surgery procedure for male patients last year? Many people automatically think of women when they think of plastic surgery, but the truth is men can, and do, benefit from cosmetic enhancement, too. If you’re a man considering rhinoplasty, call and schedule a consultation with world class rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Sajjadian. He has worked extensively with male and female patients and is well known for his natural looking rhinoplasty results.

How Common Is Male Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is one of the top plastic surgery procedures for men. In 2015, 53,000 rhinoplasty procedures were performed on men in the United States. Dr. Sajjadian regularly meets with male patients who want to change their appearance of their nose, correct breathing problems, or repair damage from nasal injuries. Exceedingly common, male rhinoplasty isn’t something to be embarrassed of.

How Is the Ideal Nose Different for Men and Women?

The ideal nose isn’t one-size-fits-all. Male noses tend to be more prominent than female noses. They may have a stronger bridge, more width and, ideally, less rotation to the tip. The nose should complement other facial features as well to ensure a harmony in the appearance. The perfect nose for a woman might look entirely out of place on a man. Our goal is to create your ideal nose—one that is in balance with your features. Men tend to have thicker skin, which can pose unique challenges in rhinoplasty surgery. Working with a surgeon who understands male rhinoplasty can ensure good results from your surgery.

I’m Not Caucasian. Are There Any Special Rhinoplasty Concerns I Should be Aware of?

If you’re a male from a non-Caucasian background, you should consider ethnic rhinoplasty with a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon like Dr. Sajjadian. Ethnic rhinoplasty requires a deeper understanding of the unique structural differences in noses of Middle Eastern, Asian, Hispanic, and African heritage.

I Don’t Have Time for Rhinoplasty Recovery. Are There Any Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty Options Available?

Many of our male patients worry about their recovery period. They may be starting off in a busy career and unable to spend time in surgery and recovery. For some of these patients, Dr. Sajjadian may recommend non-invasive nasal correction, a non-surgical alternative to rhinoplasty that uses dermal fillers to enhance the shape and appearance of the nose. This doesn’t offer the lasting results of rhinoplasty, but it may be an option if you’re too busy for surgery.

I’m Having Trouble Breathing. Can Rhinoplasty Help?

Rhinoplasty can address both aesthetic and functional changes to the nose. If you’re having trouble breathing, tell Dr. Sajjadian. Nasal obstruction correction can often be combined with rhinoplasty to address both breathing and aesthetic issues simultaneously.
