According to data released by theAmerican Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), male plastic surgery procedures are continuing to rise, increasing 43 percent in the past five years alone.
Although men only accounted for 9.7 percent of all plastic surgery procedures in 2014, they comprised 22.4 percent of all rhinoplasty patients.
Why are men enlisting the help of facial plastic surgeons to change their nose? There are a few possible answers.
A rhinoplasty can create a more youthful appearance for patients. As men age, the nose may become a troublesome body areafor self-esteem. If a man feels self conscious about his nose, he may have a hard time feeling like he can excelin both his personal and professional life. Between dating and boardroom meetings, the last thing that should be holding you back is your appearance.
In addition to an enhanced appearance, many male patients undergo a rhinoplasty because of its blending into pre-existing facialaesthetics. While many other plastic surgery procedures are performed to make a noticeable change in appearance, a rhinoplasty is a subtle, blended change. As males are already less apt to even discuss having a procedure done, a subtle change is exactly what many maywant.
A rhinoplasty has many otherbenefits including:
- Bringing better proportion to the nose and facial area
- Correcting nasal deformities present from birth
- Helping to alleviate breathing issues by rebuilding the nasal passages
- Restoring the appearance and function of the nose after an accident or sports-related injury.
