What Is Male Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery is a procedure used to reshape the nose. One of the most common types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty can scale the nose to balance other facial features for a pleasing appearance. It can also repair damaged tissue and structural problems with the nasal area. This surgery can reduce or increase the size of the nose, adjust the shape of the nostrils, reshape the bridge of the nose, or change the shape of the tip of the nose. It may also alter the angle between the nose and the upper lip or correct birth defects or injuries.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery
There are many benefits of rhinoplasty, both cosmetic and reconstructive. Men who suffer from low self-esteem or who are unhappy with the size and shape of their nose may find relief in a rhinoplasty treatment. Other patients who have a birth defect or who have damage to the nose due to an injury can repair the nose with rhinoplasty.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Male Rhinoplasty?
Men in general good health may be candidates for rhinoplasty. It is important to have realistic expectations and discuss your desired results with the doctor before any procedure. Rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is generally not recommended for young teenagers but may be appropriate for younger men. Younger patients may require rhinoplasty surgery for repairing injuries or treating nasal difficulties.
