The Difference Between A Male and Female Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or plastic surgery of the nose, can be done for medical reasons, cosmetic reasons, or a combination of the two

With the exception of severe sinus issues or congenital deformities, most women have cosmetic nose jobs, whereas men undergo the procedure more frequently for a dual purpose – repairing damage due to sports or fight injuries and the corresponding cosmetic enhancement.

More and more men are turning to rhinoplasty surgery though to remove tell-tale ethnic indicators such as pronounced humps, drooping tips, wide noses, and large nostrils. While the ideals of women’s beauty change from time to time, what is considered to be the standard of beauty for male noses has remained the same since the days of the Renaissance and Leonardo da Vinci’s formulas for the perfect proportions for the human body.

What Are Men Trying to Achieve With Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Men Rhinoplasty

The main reason more men are turning to rhinoplasty is to simply look good and feel better. Because of their tendency to be more physical and have injuries to the nose, many men are interested in being able to breathe more effectively. While doing so, it is an easy step to add some cosmetic adjustments to ensure a strong profile and straight nose.

Body image is just as important to men’s self-esteem as it is to women’s, so many younger men, some even in their late teens, are turning to rhinoplasty for purely cosmetic reasons. In such cases, an ethical rhinoplasty surgeon will want to ensure that the patient is not only medically fit for such a procedure, but that he is also psychologically prepared.

With the many advances that have occurred in plastic surgery in recent years, it is possible to achieve tremendous results with less invasive procedures. This is important for older men who have a well-imprinted body image where significant changes could be disturbing as well as younger patients who still need to “grow into” their features. Minor surgery and even non-surgical treatments can often result in significant improvement.

The Physical Differences Between Men’s and Women’s Rhinoplasty

Overall Appearance of the Face

Another consideration for both men and women is how thenose job fits harmoniously with the overall appearance of the face. Eyebrow lifts, chin implants, and other facial surgery procedures may be incorporated to ensure an effective and appealing end result.

Many surgeons have the technical skill and experience to perform rhinoplasty, but for the best and most aesthetically pleasing results, you should consult a rhinoplasty surgeon who is board certified and highly experienced in these procedures for men.

Men need to find a surgeon who has specific training because of their physical differences. In general, men have thicker skin and stronger cartilage and bone structures, which require more work to change. The good news is that more and more rhinoplasty surgeons are being trained in ethnic rhinoplasty that addresses the specific concerns of a wide spectrum of people with distinct concerns about the shape of their nose.
