Over the past several years, plastic surgery has been growing increasingly popular among men. One of the most common procedures that men get is rhinoplasty. In fact, about one-fourth of the rhinoplasties performed in 2013 were done on male patients. It’s important that a man’s ethnicity is preserved in his looks. Asian rhinoplasty can give Asian men a more balanced look to their face while maintaining their ethnicity.
Why Men Choose Rhinoplasty
Like women, men’s noses come in all sizes and shapes. Some have a nose that isn’t prominent enough, while others have a nose that is too prominent. Some are crooked, especially those that have been injured through some sort of trauma. Men tend to have a larger amount of cartilage in their noses, making them more obvious on the face. Cartilage growth can be especially obvious during puberty, causing males to be a target for bullies, mean nicknames, and general teasing. Even if he grows into his nose as an adult, the insecurity and reduced self-confidence can follow him throughout the rest of his life.
Rhinoplasty won’t solve all of life’s problems, but it can go a long way to helping a patient feel more attractive and confident in his or her appearance. This boost in self-worth then extends into other aspects of a patient’s life, including work and romantic relationships. When a man feels his best, he’s better capable of putting his best self out there.
Asian Rhinoplasty for Men
Asian rhinoplasty is a form of nose reshaping that gives the patient an overall harmony in his or her face while taking his or her ethnic nasal characteristics into account. For example, Caucasians tend to have narrower noses and a more projected nasal tip. Asians, on the other hand, usually have wider noses and rounder nasal tips.
On most males, the nose is more prominent with a high nasal bridge and a projected tip. Because of their nasal anatomy, Asian male noses tend to blend in more with the rest of their face and make it harder to distinguish the nose at all. This is why most Asian male patients typically request a dorsum augmentation to raise the nasal bridge and a nasal tip augmentation as a way of making their nose more pronounced. In this way, the nose actually becomes an individual feature of the face while still being part of the overall appearance.
Asian rhinoplasty can also be used to improve breathing problems in male patients. Snoring is a common problem among men that can disrupt their sleep or the sleep of their partner. Previous trauma to the nose through sports injuries, accidents, or abuse can also disrupt the flow of air through the nasal passages. A skilled Asian rhinoplasty surgeon will be able restore the function of the nose in addition to any cosmetic changes to its appearance.
