male rhinoplasty Minnesota

Last year, there were roughly 1.3 million plastic surgery procedures done for men. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated that there was roughly a 5 percent increase of the overall cosmetic procedures done in males in 2012 in comparison to that of 2011. Here at our Minnesota plastic surgery practice, we perform one of the top male cosmetic procedures in 2012 — the male rhinoplasty.

Male Vs. Female Rhinoplasty

A male rhinoplasty procedure refines the male nasal contour. By and large, women tend to seek narrower nasal contours while men prefer to have wider noses. Men seek nasal reshaping procedures to have that “strong and straight” look while women want their nose to look “small” for that feminine touch. Although men and women may have different looks they want to achieve, the actual male rhinoplasty surgery itself is quite similar to its female counterpart. Dr. Hoffman will see to it that one’s masculine features are restored following the procedure.

Special Considerations in Male Rhinoplasty

As mentioned earlier, the techniques used during surgery are similar between male and female clients. However, there are special considerations when it comes to Dr. Hoffman’s male rhinoplasty procedure. First, he considers the fact that the male skin tends to be thicker than female skin; hence male skin has a richer blood supply. Richer blood supply translates to greater chances of bleeding during surgery as well as prolonged bruising and swelling.

Also, male clients tend to be more impatient in the recovery process which could take a lot of time in procedures like rhinoplasty. Thus, Dr Hoffman makes it a point to thoroughly discuss the entire process and assess client expectations during the initial consultation.
