Many different nose flaws can be corrected with a rhinoplasty, including:
Bump on bridge of nose
Nose structure too sharp
Surgical nose reshaping is a complex procedure, requiring talent, skill, and a deep knowledge of the male facial structure to achieve excellent results. The surgical plan is carefully established through evaluating the other facial features to determine how to proceed. The nose is made up of both bone and cartilage, and both may need alteration, depending upon the patient. It is critical that the correct quantity of natural material is removed – you do not want to be left with an appearance that must be revised in another surgery later. The procedure can be performed with two different basic techniques:
A closed rhinoplasty is performed strictly within the nose itself and leaves no visible scars. This approach is most successful on patients who need minor alterations, as there is less access to the entire structure. More extensive reshaping techniques are typically performed with an open rhinoplasty. Deviated septum issues can be corrected with this approach.
In an open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made in the columella, the vertical piece of tissue between the nostrils. This incision allows for access to the entire nose structure. Issues such as a deviated septum can be resolved with this approach. The tiny incision will be almost invisible when healed. This type of rhinoplasty is usually performed under IV sedation, and may last for several hours, depending upon the flaws that are being corrected.
The male nose, to appear attractive, should not have a pointed or pinched look on the tip to be considered attractive. It is exceptionally important that your nose surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon who has a long history of working with male patients for the best results.
Many men come to Dr. Kotis as he is known for his work with male patients, and for his ability to reshape the male nose correctly. He is often called upon to help men with breathing issues related to a deviated septum or other structural problem – in these cases, health insurance may cover the procedure. During a procedure to correct breathing, cosmetic enhancements can also be performed. The end result should be a masculine appearance that brings the entire facial structure into balance and harmony.
