Cosmetic Rhinoplasty for Men on the Rise

Nose reshaping surgery or rhinoplasty is one of the top surgical procedures requested by men. While many people reserve cosmetic surgery for women, the number of men who undergo surgery has been steadily rising throughout the years with over 200,000 male plastic surgery patients in 2010.

While rhinoplasty is performed in a similar manner for both men and women, the aesthetic results men seek with rhinoplasty surgery are much different than that of female patients. Dr. Fernando Burstein understands the importance of masculine rhinoplasty surgery results for which male patients are searching: a strong-looking nose with a higher bridge and a shape that fits the proportions of a man’s face.

Because the nose is both a functional and aesthetic facial feature, it is important to select a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon like Dr. Burstein who specializes in facial plastic surgery. Dr. Burstein’s acute knowledge of the contours of the face allows him to create personalized results that are tailored to each patient’s individualized look. Regardless if the patient is male or female, the key to natural-looking rhinoplasty results is a surgery that is personalized to your facial features and desired outcome.

During a rhinoplasty procedure, incisions are made along the inside of the nose or along the narrow strip of tissue between the nostrils (called the columella). From there, the internal structures within the nose and areas where the small bones of the nose join are reshaped to better suit a person’s facial features and aesthetic goals. For men, this could mean the evening-out of nostril size, a straightening of the nasal septum, or a reduction of the nasal tip to fit facial proportions.

Many male patients undergo rhinoplasty surgery to correct damage done in the past like a deviated septum caused by a broken nose or other trauma that happened in youth. Not only does trauma cause breathing problems, but it can also alter the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can ameliorate both these issues, giving patients a more streamlined profile and better breathing ability.
