Rhinoplasty: Man’s Best Friend
Rhinoplasty has always been the most popular surgical procedure among men making up almost a quarter of all elective surgical procedures for males. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons males accounted for 217,124 of the total rhinoplasty procedures performed in 2014. Since it’s proven to be such a common surgery for male patients, a lot of men don’t realize the importance of finding a facial plastic surgeon that has a great deal of expertise working with a male aesthetic. Beverly Hills Rhinoplasty expert Dr. Babak Azizzadeh has helped countless male patients improve the look and function of their nose. Since his prestigious training at Harvard, Dr. Azizzadeh has gone on to write five best-selling books including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty. Dr. Azizzadeh has been recognized as a Top Doctor for rhinoplasty by US News and World Report as is one of the leading experts in the field of primary, revision, and ethnic rhinoplasty. Dr. Azizzadeh is double board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology which gives him a unique insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
What is a Rhinoplasty?
A Beverly Hills male rhinoplasty or “nose job” is a surgical procedure to address the aesthetics or function of the nose. People commonly pursue a nose job to change the way that their nose looks, for example to reduce a nasal hump, or to correct nostril asymmetry. Sometimes patients want to preserve the aesthetics of their nose, but have trouble breathing which can be addressed as well. Sometimes, patients report having trouble with their nasal function but also want to address the appearance of their nose. These patients benefit from a surgery called a septo-rhinoplasty that can be performed to correct breathing problems and address cosmetic concerns at the same time. The nose is a very prominent facial feature and should be in proportion with other features like the eyes, cheeks, and chin. No matter what kind of rhinoplasty procedure patients are looking for, it’s important to find a surgeon who has expertise providing a natural result.
How are Male and Female Rhinoplasty Different?
Although the general surgical techniques are similar for male and female rhinoplasty patients, the aesthetic goals are very different. Men usually desire a stronger, more prominent bridge than women. They also have wider noses and thicker skin, which should be taken into consideration. Male noses typically have a sharply defined and more angular tip and greater overall nasal projection. Dr. Azizzadeh takes all of these factors into account while creating a customized treatment plan for each of his male patients. Although male and female aesthetics are different, every surgery should be completely tailored to each individual patient, regardless of their gender. Dr. Azizzadeh takes great care to consider each male’s innate anatomy in order to provide his patients with the most natural result possible.
