Given that the nose has significant prominence on a face, when it’s too large or out of balance with the surrounding facial features, it can greatly affect a persons’ self-esteem. Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery is the most popular facial cosmetic procedure available. It works to improve the balance of facial features, often boosting the patient’s confidence in the process.
Although cosmetic surgery procedures have traditionally been associated with women, an increasing number of men are requesting rhinoplasty surgery in Toronto due to its ability to enhance their physical appearance.
In fact, male rhinoplasty in Toronto is quickly gaining popularity as our society no longer views cosmetic surgery as an exclusively female practice. However, given the unique needs of male patients, it is important to select a surgeon who has experience performing male rhinoplasty.
Although men and women have similar nasal structures, a number of important distinctions are present. For instance, in most cases, males have a wider nasal bridge and more defined edges compared to the sloping, often curvier edges typically characteristic of female noses. In addition to these aesthetic differences, there are important structural variations in male noses, as both the bone and cartilage tend to be stronger and larger in male patients.
This distinction is attributed to the fact that higher oxygen levels are required to maintain a larger muscle mass. As a result of these differences, correcting bone deformities in male patients often requires significant work.
As a renowned Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeon who has been specializing in Toronto rhinoplasty for two decades, Dr. Philip Solomon has dedicated his practice to helping both male and female patients achieve their aesthetic goals.
Male patients undergo Toronto rhinoplasty for a number of different reasons. Men are typically more likely than women to seek nose-reshaping surgery after sustaining an injury or sport-related accident. In addition, many men also opt to combine rhinoplasty with septoplasty in order to repair a deviated nasal septum, thereby correcting breathing problems.
However, more men are now also expressing an interest in rhinoplasty for purely aesthetic purposes, hoping to change the size and shape of their nose to enhance their overall appearance or provide greater balance and symmetry to the face. Although the procedure is the same, the surgical approach and techniques used for male rhinoplasty vary as in most cases, men hope to maintain or achieve the strong features which are characteristic with a masculine nose such as a long, straight nose.
Many male patients also hope to make changes to their nose without compromising their ethnic features. For example, many Asian men, who naturally have a rounder, less prominent nasal bridge, are interested in achieving a stronger, more prominent nose while also maintaining their distinct ethnic look. Thus, to ensure that they achieve their desired results, it is crucial for male patients to select a qualified facial plastic surgeon who has extensive experience performing male rhinoplasty.
