Why Rhinoplasty Is Becoming More Popular Among Men

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ 2020 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, male patients represented nearly 290,000 of the cosmetic surgical procedures performed in the U.S. last year, and more than 65,100 of those surgeries were nose jobs, also known as rhinoplasties.

Today, more men are choosing plastic surgery to improve various aspects of their appearance, and Dr. Desman has made rhinoplasty for men a focus of his thriving practice. Why might you consider joining this trend and getting rhinoplasty?

You Want to Put Your Best Face Forward

Thanks to technology like smartphone cameras, dating apps, and video chats, most of us are hyper-aware of how we look from every angle. While strategic lighting and careful camera positioning can help disguise some of your cosmetic flaws, these tricks can only go so far if your nose is causing disharmony among your other facial features.

Rhinoplasty is an ideal procedure for men who feel their nose is too prominent, too crooked, or who have an unwanted bump or divot. Having your nose surgically reshaped and improved can give you a competitive edge in a crowded job market or the dating game.

The Stigma Is Fading

People used to whisper about “having work done” as if it was a taboo topic, but fortunately, people’s opinions have evolved. Today, the idea of surgically altering your appearance is becoming increasingly mainstream, as advanced surgical techniques continue to help more men and women improve their self-esteem. If you are in good overall health, do not smoke, have realistic expectations, and can take time away from work and other obligations to devote to your recovery, you could be an excellent candidate for rhinoplasty surgery.

You Want to Correct Breathing Problems

Whether you were born with congenital issues like a deviated septum or you experienced an injury or accident that left you over-reliant on decongestants, breathing strips, and nasal steroids, trouble breathing through your nose is more than an inconvenience. It’s a health concern that can cause increasingly severe problems like sleep apnea, nosebleeds, and frequent sinus infections. Many people choose to have nose surgery to correct these issues and improve their quality of life. When performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Desman can shape a more symmetrical nose while ensuring optimal breathing function.

Why Choose VCPS for Your Male Rhinoplasty?

Since your nose simultaneously plays practical and cosmetic roles, it’s critical to work with a surgeon who is skilled at manipulating the bone, cartilage, and airways in a way that preserves both purposes. Board certification is a hallmark of a plastic surgeon who has pledged to provide outstanding results while maintaining the industry’s highest ethical standards.

Dr. Desman first earned his board certification in 1999 and achieved recertification in 2009 and 2019. His dedication to his patients, combined with his expertise, creates an ideal experience for everyone who walks through our doors at the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery.
