If you are a man, and you’re unhappy with the size or the shape of your nose, you may be thinking there’s nothing you can do about it – nose jobs are just for women, right? Wrong! Rhinoplasty (the medical term for a nose job) can help both men and women who want to make a change to their nose!
What Can Rhinoplasty Do for You?
You may worry that a nose job may make you look less masculine – however, the right plastic surgeon will know how to enhance your masculine features while making the changes you want. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is customized for the patient, so that he or she gets the look they want. Rhinoplasty can help:
- A bump on the nose
- A crooked nose
- A nose that is too wide or narrow
- A nose that looks too feminine
- A nose that is disfigured because of a previous trauma or injury
It can even help patients who have difficulty breathing, who snore, and who have sleeping problems because of the nose. During your consultation, your doctor will meet with you to discuss the changes you would like to see and any problems your nose is causing you. You should be physically healthy and have realistic expectations about the outcome when considering rhinoplasty. It is typically an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia, but it can also be done with local anesthesia with or without sedation. The surgery usually only takes less than 2 hours, and patients can typically get back to work within a couple of days, although it may take a few weeks to entirely get back to your old routine. Although you may see some changes to your nose as you age, rhinoplasty does give patients permanent results.
