Male Rhinoplasty in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL
As a man, you may consider rhinoplasty to straighten your nose, reduce the size slightly, remove a distracting bump or repair a previous injury. Not all rhinoplasty surgeries are alike, though, so you should choose a surgeon who understands how to retain and enhance masculine features of your nose. As a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, Dr. Dean G. Davis is well-versed in the bone and soft tissue structures that are required to maintain a masculine nose and profile. If you live in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and nearby towns in Florida, entrust your male rhinoplasty to Dr. Davis.
What Is Male Rhinoplasty?
Generally, men come to see Dr. Davis for nose surgery when they are unhappy with the size, shape and/or function of their nose. Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is the procedure performed to reshape a man’s nose in order to give them the size and shape that he is seeking.
Why Men Want Rhinoplasty?
There are several reasons that a man may want to have rhinoplasty, including:
- Improved Appearance: Although rhinoplasty can mean changes merely in micro-millimeters, the results can change the appearance of your face radically. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your face because your nose is too large, too small or misshapen as a result of an accident or birth, then this procedure can change how you look, bringing balance to your face and a more pleasing aesthetic.
- Improved Function: Dr. Davis also treats patients who are looking to have nose surgery because they are experiencing problems caused or aggravated by malformations within the nose. These issues include difficulty breathing, allergies, or vertigo.
- Improved Confidence: Many people have strong motivations to undergo rhinoplasty. For instance, nose surgery may boost confidence when it comes to dating or being competitive in the workforce. A lot of men are also inspired to have this type of cosmetic surgery done after seeing firsthand the improvement it has made in the lives of people that they know.
What Men Want From Rhinoplasty
Men want a nose that fits their face. They don’t want a nose that’s too big or too small. Some men want nose surgery because their nose has been broken, and they want to have it straightened. Whatever the reason you come in for rhinoplasty, you want a nose that looks like you. You don’t want to get a nose job that leaves you unrecognizable in the end. You want to look like you, only a better-looking you. Whatever change you came in to make, Dr. Davis will make sure that your nose is just as strong and masculine-looking as you want it to be.
Are More And More Men Getting Rhinoplasty?
Yes, and there are several reasons why. First, rhinoplasty techniques have changed over the last several years. In the past, nose jobs were considered to be reductive operations. However, some noses have actually benefited from nose augmentation and projection. Techniques to extend the dorsum have improved in recent years, making graft visibility less noticeable and nasal tip projection more predictable. Another reason why more men are getting rhinoplasty is due to the rapid growth of plastic surgery over the last several years. More men have begun having plastic surgery to improve their looks and self-esteem.
How Should A Men’s Nose Look Different From A Women’s Nose?
A man’s nose should fit his face. That usually will call for a stronger dorsum and more projected nasal tip. While most women seek to make their nose narrower, many men are looking to get a wider nose.
Preparing For A Male Rhinoplasty
Before your male rhinoplasty, please avoid taking certain medications, specifically aspirin, ibuprofen, and other anti-inflammatories. You should also avoid taking certain supplements and herbs. Avoiding these medications and supplements will help lessen the risk of bleeding. We also recommend avoiding alcohol consumption and smoking.
Male Rhinoplasty Recovery
Patients generally experience some mild discomfort during the time period immediately following their nose job. It takes around two weeks for the bruising on the face to fade. We recommend you avoid any strenuous activity for six weeks following the procedure. By the one-month mark, most patients have healed well enough to look like they haven’t had surgery.
How Much Does Male Rhinoplasty Cost?
The cost of male rhinoplasty generally depends on the reason you’re getting it. If it’s for cosmetic reasons, then your insurance company will most likely consider it an elective procedure, and you will have to pay out of pocket. Insurance coverage may apply, however, if the rhinoplasty is performed in conjunction with septal surgery for functional reasons. Please contact us if you need assistance determining insurance coverage or using CareCredit® financing. For patients paying out of pocket, our office also accepts payments via cash, credit card, or check.
