The nose is one of the essential focal points of the face, which means its size, shape, projection, and other characteristics significantly influence your facial appearance. For example, a crooked or malformed nose could adversely impact your facial symmetry, proportions, and balance, ultimately impact your perceived attractiveness. One of the most routine male plastic surgery procedures is a rhinoplasty, which involves a few minor alterations to account for anatomical and cosmetic differences.
More masculine facial appearances typically have more defined, contoured features, so a rhinoplasty addresses this concern. However, in general, rhinoplasty surgery takes a highly individualized approach for each patient, so the first step is talking with a highly knowledgeable plastic surgeon. Contact North Texas Plastic Surgery’s Dallas office to arrange a consultation for a male rhinoplasty, where you can discuss your surgical goals and possibilities for results with a member of our team.
One of the most prominent differences in male rhinoplasty surgery is the anatomical differences of men, including their higher bridges and wider nose width. In addition, men typically have thicker skin, including on the face, such as around the nose and particularly the tip. Due to these physical anatomy differences, a male rhinoplasty procedure often repositions the skin differently after reshaping the nose to prevent excess skin tension.
Another specific rhinoplasty consideration for men in the Plano region is the side-profile appearance of the bridge. A female nose often has a slightly concave bridge that dips inward but a male nose tends to have a somewhat straight nose bridge. Therefore, the procedure maintains a straight masculine bridge appearance if a rhinoplasty patient wants to minimize a bridge bump.
Lastly, male rhinoplasty patients often want different final results than female patients – typically more defined nose contours for a more robust, prominent look. While female patients usually want thinner bridges and slightly upturned tips, male rhinoplasty patients often keep more bulbous tips in a neutral position and broader bridges. Further, men often focus less on reducing nose projection unless the feature is too prominent as compared to other facial features.
The principal purpose of rhinoplasty surgery for most men in Southlake and the North Texas area is to alter their nose shape, size, and projection to create a more defined, masculine feature. Thus, the procedure focuses on keeping a wider bridge and a more prominent, neutral tip since these are considered masculine characteristics. The procedure can also improve a patient’s facial symmetry and balance facial proportions, which boosts overall perceived attractiveness.
In addition to the appearance benefits of nasal surgery, many patients experience notable emotional benefits afterward. For instance, the operation could significantly improve a patient’s body image, confidence, and self-esteem due to the improved appearance.
Finally, some men undergo rhinoplasty to relieve breathing difficulties, often resulting from a deviated septum, or could help reduce sleep apnea symptoms, specifically obstructive sleep apnea.
As a result of being one of the prominent features of the face, many people are unhappy with their nose due to its projection, size, shape, and other features, including their nostrils or nasal tip. Consequently, many men seek rhinoplasty surgery to make ideal cosmetic changes while balancing their facial proportions and symmetry.
Although the physical benefits of rhinoplasty are notable, the emotional benefits that most patients enjoy afterward could significantly impact your life. Instead of being unhappy with the way your nose looks and affects your appearance, consider the long-lasting enhancements of a male rhinoplasty by calling our Dallas office and scheduling a consultation with a Board-certified plastic surgeon.
