As plastic surgery for men has increased in popularity over the last few years, you might be curious about what types of procedures men tend to favor. Popular procedures include eyelid surgery, browlifts, male breast reduction, hair transplant, skin resurfacing, Botox, liposuction, and rhinoplasty.
So why are more men having work done than ever before? For the same reason women are: men want to feel more confident, sexy, and youthful. They also need to remain competitive with younger employees in their work place and when applying for new jobs.
Men seeking plastic surgery often ask for features to mimic celebrities, just like women do. Women in 2012 wanted Kate Middleton’s nose, while men looked to Robert Pattinson’s strong jaw for inspiration. With improved surgical techniques and shorter recovery times, many men are deciding it’s the right time to fix what’s been bothering them with plastic surgery.
Rhinoplasty is a very popular procedure for men as well as women. This is because the nose is such a dominant facial feature, influencing the balance and overall appearance of the face. An experienced surgeon can reshape the nose to create a harmonious balance between the features. Rhinoplasty is a complex and difficult surgical procedure, which is why it’s important to choose an expert plastic surgeon.
Techniques for Male Rhinoplasty
The rhinoplasty procedure for men is essentially the same as it is for women. The main difference is the type of look men are seeking. In general, men want stronger features and a less delicate appearance. Nasal hump removal is a common request for both genders, but men don’t necessarily want a lower bridge, as women do. This is because most men want a more angular, defined face. Men also tend to have thicker skin and cartilage than women, so it’s important that the surgeon understands these differences and can reliably produce outcomes that patients desire. Despite these generalizations, however, rhinoplasty is not a "one size fits all" type of operation. Each patient requires a unique approach to produce the best outcome. Because men often tend to be less patient with healing issues and less realistic about outcomes, a second consultation with the surgeon to answer further questions is always a good idea.
