Why Rhinoplasty Is Becoming More Popular Among Men
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries, and it is easy to understand why. Nose surgery enables an individual to reshape the nose, leading to a more balanced and symmetrical facial appearance. Also, rhinoplasty helps correct structural and functional issues in the nose, enabling a person to restore the nasal function.
Male rhinoplasty also is gaining popularity. This procedure is designed specifically for men and allows them to enhance the facial aesthetic and address structural defects in the nose.
In 2016, nose reshaping ranked first among the top cosmetic surgical procedures for men in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Additionally, 55,000 male rhinoplasty treatments were performed in 2016, up 3% year over year, ASPS reported. The aforementioned statistics show that men are becoming more aware of rhinoplasty and its benefits. If this trend continues, more men may undergo nose surgeries in the years to come.
What Are the Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty?
Male rhinoplasty is a comprehensive facial surgery designed to help men enhance their facial appearance and resolve breathing issues, such as a deviated septum and other structural problems in the nose. The procedure offers many benefits, including:
- Enhanced Nose Symmetry: Each male rhinoplasty is tailored to a patient. As such, the procedure ensures a patient can achieve a nose that matches his face.
- Repair of Structural Defects in the Nose: Male nose surgery has been shown to provide long-lasting repair of structural defects in the nose.
- Increased Self-Confidence: With a natural-looking and symmetric nose, a patient can improve his facial appearance and boost his self-confidence.
