WHAT IS MALE RHINOPLASTY?
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that is used to reshape or repair any unwanted defects in the nose. Male rhinoplasty is a very popular procedure and is often used to fix breathing troubles caused by structural flaws or injury. It is also performed to create an appearance that is symmetrical to other facial features. This procedure is ideal for men who desire to resize their noses to correct any bumps or disproportions. The doctor can produce a naturally appealing, masculine result that is proportional to the client’s overall facial structure.
HOW IS RHINOPLASTY FOR MEN BENEFICIAL?
Male rhinoplasty surgery can be used to correct obvious and unsightly defects in the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can correct or adjust:
Proportion in relation to other facial features.
How broad or narrow the bridge appears.
Discernible bumps or indentations on the bridge of the nose.
How rounded, pointed, flat, or perky the tip of the nose is shaped.
Nostrils that are too wide or constricted or that may flare.
Asymmetrical or off-centered placement or proportion.
Rhinoplasty is also useful in repairing tissue that has been damaged by injury or medical defect. It is highly effective in mending respiratory problems caused by certain structural issues, such as a deviated septum.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR MALE RHINOPLASTY?
Male rhinoplasty is an ideal option for patients who suffer from disproportionate, disfigured, or oversized noses or nostrils. If you often find yourself complaining about the shape, size, or a particular indent or bump on your nose, rhinoplasty may be ideal. It can also prove useful in patients who suffer from structural defects caused by injury or genetics. Nose reconstruction surgery is regularly performed on children and teens that suffer from a deviated septum or highly irregular nose shapes as well.
HOW IS MALE RHINOPLASTY PERFORMED?
Male rhinoplasty procedures vary greatly based on the patient’s particular wants and needs. Your surgeon at the Weston Center For Plastic Surgery will work intimately with each patient to tailor a procedure that best addresses individual concerns and problem areas, so as to attain the patient’s desired results. Rhinoplasty surgery usually lasts between one to two hours. Following the procedure, a splint may be placed to help your nose keep its new shape for a few days.
