Last year, rhinoplasty was the top cosmetic surgical procedure for male patients, with 55,000 procedures performed in the U.S. This procedure can reshape the male nose, transforming the appearance and helping with breathing problems. If you’re a man and considering rhinoplasty, keep reading for three essential tips every man should know before rhinoplasty surgery.
The Nose Should Match the Face
Even a perfectly formed nose can look out of place if it isn’t in harmony with the other features on your face. For the best rhinoplasty results, work with a surgeon who is experienced in creating a nose that is complementary to your underlying facial structure. Typically, male noses should be strong and masculine, with a wider bridge than female noses. Dr. Sajjadian is highly skilled at creating aesthetically pleasing noses both for male Caucasian and ethnic patients.
Choose Your Surgeon Carefully
If you want natural looking and greatly improved rhinoplasty results the first time around, choose your surgeon carefully. Too often, Dr. Sajjadian meets with patients who are dissatisfied from their rhinoplasty results performed by another surgeon. Revision rhinoplasty is much more difficult than a first rhinoplasty. Choosing a highly skilled surgeon initially can save you from the expense, pain and stress of a revision surgery.
If you are preparing for revision rhinoplasty, the choice of surgeon is even more important. Choose a surgeon with extensive experience performing revision rhinoplasty. Often, the nasal passages are damaged from the previous surgery and getting things right is even more important to avoid additional damage.
Understand the Difference Between Male and Female Noses
Male and female noses are aesthetically very different. Male noses typically feature a stronger bridge, a longer nose, more tip projection and more angular features. A nose that would look great on a woman would be entirely out of place on a male patient. Work with your surgeon to create a nose that is both attractive and masculine. Choose a surgeon that has a deep understanding of the differences between male and female noses.
