Do Rhinoplasty Surgeries Differ for Men?

Rhinoplasty is the most common facial plastic surgery in both men and women.

If you’re a male thinking about undergoing rhinoplasty for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons you should be familiar with how the procedure and outcome can differ for men.

Differences in Nose Shape

A man’s nose can create a different profile than a woman’s, and men often seek to achieve a stronger, more angular look.

Traditionally male noses are longer, sit differently in relation to the upper lip and have a more pronounced, bridge

A qualified facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Bared, understands these nuances and has the experience necessary to create the desired nose shape.

Skin Differences

Greater thickness in the skin in men needs to be taken into consideration in male rhinoplasty. Greater stiffness of the nasal cartilage may also affect the surgical approach to nose shaping.

Previous Injuries

It’s important to disclose to your doctor if you have suffered from facial injuries from contact sports, physical labor or anything else.

Injuries that occurred as far back as early childhood may have resulted in structural abnormalities requiring additional correction during rhinoplasty.

Because all surgery poses risks, take the time to talk about special considerations for male rhinoplasty with your surgeon during the consultation phase. An experienced surgeon like Dr. Bared knows how to compensate for the biological differences between men and women.
