Rhinoplasty For Men : Get The Facts Straight
Cosmetic surgery for men has become more mainstreamed as its acceptance grows in a wider array of races, ethnicities and ages among males. So many men are now opting for it. From 1998 to 2011, it increased to about 121%. Advancement in these procedures has responded to the increasing demand and along with it, men’s outlook on cosmetic surgery has continued to change over the years.
One of those highly in-demand procedures for men is Male Rhinoplasty or also known as Noselift. It is the nose that occupies the very center of your face and can compliment you from your other attractive features like your lips and eyes. The perfect nose is the one that is not too small or too big; the less noticeable it is, the better.
Rhinoplasty for men can help males have better confidence in terms of facial looks by creating a nose that’s more compatible with the rest of your facial features. It is also design to increase or reduce the size of your nose and reshape its tip and the nostril. More importantly, it helps you have proper breathing and restores the other functions of your nose by correcting some nasal deformities due to injury or congenital problems. All in all, you will be able to attain harmony in your entire face while still retaining its cultural and individual uniqueness.
Consultation with a certified surgeon before undergoing the surgery is very important. It will include the discussions on what you want to be done with your nose, your medical history, your fitness to undergo the procedure, your expectations and how the surgeon will obtain the best results for you. Some surgeons are using computerize imaging system to help you visualize the final result.
Rhinoplasty can be carried out on males from aged 16 years; this is because males’ noses don’t stop growing until they are 16. This procedure can be done under local or general anesthetic depending on your personal preference and the extent of the surgery. This operation can take about one to two hours and is usually performed on an out-patient basis.
Close and Open Rhinoplasty
The open method is done by making an incision across your skin between the nostrils. Internal structures are then easily worked on but the swelling may take some time to subside.
The close method however, does not involve an incision on the outer tissue of your nose and can easily heal because the tissues are less disrupted.
Incisions made during procedures aim to reduce scaring so they are usually done inside the perimeter of your nostrils. The soft tissues are separated from the primary structure. The bone and cartilage of the nose are then reshaped to get the desired structure. The nostrils can also be narrowed or widened according to your need. In some cases, the nose appears crooked or asymmetrical and can have a noticeable disfigurement or bump, which can be modified by the surgeon if needed.
Though male rhinoplasty does not affect your career achievements and work ethics, even the smallest nose improvement can significantly increase your demeanor and confidence, allowing you to become more focused on obtaining your personal goals.
Post Operative Care
Pain after the procedure is supposed to be minimal. Any pain can be controlled by mild analgesics. Nose reduction procedure may require a nostril packing or nose splint to support the shape until it heals. Any stitches applied are self dissolving and the possibility of blood loss may occur that’s why the gauze packing may need to be changed.
Swelling may be present after the procedure but will gradually subside after several weeks. Application of cold compress can help reduce the swelling around the area of the eyes. The numbness of your nose is possible depending on the extent of the surgery that was done. Usually, your nose should be healed within few weeks, but this length of healing time depends also on your ability to heal. You must use sunscreen as your nose will be sensitive in the sun when you go outside. You can do light works already in about two days, or as your healing ability allows it.
Along with any operations are possibilities to have some unexpected risk. Possible risks like numbness, scarring, infection and unhappiness with the final result may occur. Good screening and having it with a certified cosmetic surgeon who is operating in a clean and good place will minimize the possibility of these risks of happening to you.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to create a natural and more attractive nose, and the use of rhinoplasty promotes this result. For reference you can view detailed before and after photos of rhinoplasty procedure performed by Dr. Rino Lorenzo of The Renewed You Aesthetic Clinic.
