The number of men opting for rhinoplasty has risen to the point where it is now the most popular cosmetic surgery performed on men worldwide.
Studies done in the last few years show that men make up one-third of patients who undergo rhinoplasties (nose jobs). Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can fix structural irregularities in the nose that are the root cause of breathing problems. Individuals who are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose and wish to make it more symmetrical are also common candidates for this procedure.
One of the main goals of male rhinoplasty is to prevent the nose from looking too feminine. A pinched nasal tip on a man’s nose can make him look like he’s had surgery.
If you meet these criteria, you may benefit from rhinoplasty:
Have reached the age of 13 at the latest.
Don’t like the way your nose looks or how big it is.
Experiencing difficulty breathing because of a nasal abnormality, such as a crooked septum.
Be aware that the procedure does have some restrictions. For example, trying to achieve a perfectly symmetrical nose is impossible as human faces are naturally asymmetrical to some extent.
Your goals, current health, and way of life will all be part of the conversation during a rhinoplasty consultation. Reasons for treatment, desired outcomes regarding your nose, current health issues, medications, family history, and previous facial surgeries are all topics you should be prepared to discuss.
An outpatient procedure requiring general anesthesia, rhinoplasty is nonetheless performed in this fashion. Two distinct rhinoplasty procedures exist:
The columella (the tissue that separates the nostrils) is cut in an open rhinoplasty.
A closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions inside the nose, where they will heal without being visible. The procedure involves making incisions and then removing excess tissue, as well as possibly reshaping bone and cartilage. Due to its shorter recovery time, less swelling, and quicker recovery, closed rhinoplasty is sometimes preferred.
Swelling will be reduced by applying a bandage to your nose, and a splint will be used to keep it in place after the procedure. A painkiller can help with any discomfort you feel in the days following surgery. Meanwhile, recovery times differ from patient to patient, most patients can return to work after one week.
While the majority of the changes from rhinoplasty should be visible within a year, you will be able to fully appreciate your new appearance about a week after surgery.
