Gaining Popularity: Rhinoplasty for Men
Last year, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery released data that confirms what Dr Marcells has noted: more men are having nose surgery than ever before. In this article, we look at some of the reasons.
Like all facial plastic surgery procedures, a successful rhinoplasty is as much an art as it is a science. It demands a mastery of a variety of surgical techniques, meticulous execution, and an aesthetic understanding of nasal anatomy. Patients benefit from Dr George Marcells’ years of experience performing and perfecting this delicate procedure.
He knows precisely what to do to achieve the results his patients desire.
6 Reasons Rhinoplasty is Popular with Men
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries Dr Marcells performs. Here are some reasons why men have gotten on the rhinoplasty bandwagon:
- Because men are now as free as women to pursue cosmetic surgery goals.
- Because they’re unhappy with a nose that is off centre, has a big, bulbous, or droopy tip, is too wide or too thin, has a ski jump look or bump.
- Because they want a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
- Because they want to enhance their appearance, but not look like a different person.
- Because they want to repair the visible signs of an old injury.
Because they want to address breathing problems such as a deviated septum.
Dr Marcells Explains 3 Types of Rhinoplasty
In the end, each patient has his own combination of reasons for undergoing rhinoplasty. These reasons, along with a patient’s anatomy, are important elements that Dr Marcells considers when creating a custom-tailored surgical plan. The first step is to determine which rhinoplasty surgery is appropriate:
Functional rhinoplasty – Nasal airway obstruction may be the result of an injury, a congenital defect, previous surgery, or a combination of these factors. Functional rhinoplasty corrects the nasal structures to remove obstructions and restore breathing function. It can, at the same time, improve the aesthetics of the nose if the patient desires.
- Primary rhinoplasty is used to change the size, shape and orientation of the nose. Primary rhinoplasty can also improve functional problems.
- Reconstructive rhinoplasty – Reconstructive or tertiary rhinoplasty is designed to correct issues that are a result of prior ineffective surgeries, trauma or tumour surgery. These rhinoplasties usually require difficult manipulations, multiple stages and/or tissue grafting for proper results. Dr Marcells is experienced in addressing the multitude of variables in reconstruction (or revision) rhinoplasty to ensure that his patients enjoy optimal results.
