Rhinoplasty is an extremely popular surgery, not only for women but for men as well. Male rhinoplasty has quickly become a highly requested surgery. However, there are a number of factors that make this procedure different for both men and women, with the main differentiator focused on nose structure and size.
Let’s learn more about the differences for both male and female patients.
There are many reasons why someone would opt for rhinoplasty surgery. For some, it’s to improve their nasal airways and then for other patients, it’s a cosmetic concern they’d like to correct.
The primary reason men select to have work performed on their nose is to create a more strongly defined nose, with a focus on a straight angle. For most women, aesthetics play a huge role in making their final decision, with many requesting a subtle, softer nose with an upturned nasal tip appearance.
The differences with a female rhinoplasty stem from the anatomy of the nose and how it impacts the appearance and healing process. With female rhinoplasty procedures, the focus is to usually create the illusion of a smaller and petite nose. Accordingly, the healing process wouldn’t be as drastic or noticeable in comparison to a man, as their noses tend to be larger in size.
Unlike most women, men typically have longer and more prominent noses. When it comes to these particular cases, male patients often seek treatment to reduce the size of their nose, so it’s no longer such a standout feature.
Male rhinoplasty can also improve the symmetry, balance and overall look of a male patient’s face. With just a slight change to the nose shape, it can display dramatic changes to the overall aesthetic of one’s face. It’s also important to consider how male noses have thicker skin than women; therefore, their recovery and healing timeline varies.
