Open or Closed Rhinoplasty? Which one to choose? The purpose of Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is…
The number of Male Rhinoplasty procedures performed worldwide has increased dramatically over the past few years, as men have become more open and comfortable with the benefits that plastic surgery can offer.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most complex procedures in plastic surgery and although the basic surgical techniques used for both male and female Rhinoplasty are the same, the aesthetic proportions and goals differ enormously.
The skin and cartilage in the male nose is generally thicker than in the female nose and men tend to have a more prominent nose than women, with a straighter bridge and greater width to the middle of the nose. Women usually desire a smaller more delicate nose whereas the male nose should always retain its strong masculine shape. Male patients are often quite vague and non-specific about their Rhinoplasty goals and preferences and by choosing a surgeon who specialises in male Rhinoplasty, an excellent aesthetic and functional outcome can usually be expected. Sports injuries are also more common in male patients and Rhinoplasty is then performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons.
Today with the availability of Computer Imaging and with the skills and artistic excellence of an experienced surgeon, male Rhinoplasty patients should end up with a nose that not only suits their face but their personality too.
