I’m a 45 year old Asian male who would like a nose job. Could you please tell me a bit more about this procedure for men?
While men may not seek rhinoplasty surgery as frequently as women, it is still a very common facial plastic surgery. Male rhinoplasty is similar to female in that it is designed to aesthetically enhance the face and may also be able to fix breathing problems.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and usually lasts between one and three hours. However, the surgery could take longer depending on what you are having done. Afterward nasal packing may be inserted in to the nose to prevent excess bleeding. You will be able to return to work within 3-5 days post surgery.
A good candidate is someone who is physically healthy and who has realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. If you are in the Los Angeles area and would like a rhinoplasty procedure, please contact Dr. Nassif to schedule a consultation.
