If you thought cosmetic surgery was only for women, think again. More and more men are setting aside traditional notions of only women wanting to enhance their appearance and looking at various options for men to do the same. Male Rhinoplasty has only recently started creating waves as one of the most desired cosmetic procedures by men.
The reasons for men wanting Rhinoplasty are more or less the same as women. Either they have been suffering from deformities such as birth defects or those that arise as a result of some trauma caused by an injury or an accident; or they would like to correct these deformities. It has also been observed that more men suffer nose trauma because of sport-related injuries or physical altercations. This is what Rhinoplasty was traditionally developed to assist with. However, later on surgeons found that the same techniques can be used to change the shape and size of the nose without too much trouble. In fact, advanced medical methods even allowed surgeons to perform major reconstructive work to drastically alter the appearance of one’s nose.
Many of the aesthetic reasons for altering one’s nose stay common for both men and women. They require a reduction in the dorsal hump or a reduction in the space between the nostrils. They may want a change in the angle between the nose and the upper lip; and an increase or reduction in the width of the nasal bridge. However, men prefer the changes to make them look stronger and give more force to their personality.
Most men feel that their personality is defined by a strong profile characterized by a strong and straight nose. Therefore, many surgeons perform Rhinoplasty aware that they need to maintain or bring about strong masculine aesthetics in the new nasal structure.
This increase in interest in Male Rhinoplasty has been attributed to growing awareness amongst men about the benefits of cosmetic surgery. They can see how changing the appearance of one’s can have a dramatic effect on one’s entire appearance. And this has a positive impact at work as well as in relationships.
For example, men typically want to convey the sense of a strong persona both at their workplace as well as in relationships. A nose with a drooping tip or a nose bent-out of shape does not exactly convey this kind of persona. A surgeon can show them many options of changing this appearance so that they regain their confidence and can again build up their authority. Many also suggest combing procedures like chin implants along with Rhinoplasty to make this transformation complete.
Further, more and more Americans, men and women alike are becoming conscious of the signs of aging and like to take measure to combat them. Rhinoplasty is one such option and when combined with a Face Lift provides an excellent way of combating the facial signs of aging.
Rhinoplasty is successful today because it gives both men and women what they want, a positive change in their appearance so that they can meet life’s challenges with self-confidence.
