Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?
For patients who feel their nose creates an imbalance with their other facial features, a male rhinoplasty can produce significant cosmetic improvements. Alterations to nasal structure measuring in micro millimeters can dramatically improve facial appearance. Nose surgery can also correct structural problems and obstructions to breathing.
The best candidates for nose surgery are:
- At least 16 for males (when they have completed their growth spurt and are emotionally prepared to make the decision)
- Patients who have a crooked nose, either congenitally or due to trauma
- Patients with anatomical problems, such as a deviated septum, obstructing their airways
- Older patients with a drooping tip or a nose that started to hang
- Men who want to change the shape or size of the nose to become more harmonious with the remaining facial features
- Patients with unsatisfactory results from a previous rhinoplasty, such as collapsed sidewalls, pinched tip, crooked appearance, irregular profile, or an asymmetrical nostril shape
Types of rhinoplasty
The two primary types of surgical rhinoplasty involve an open or a closed approach:
Open rhinoplasty is appropriate for major reshaping of the nose, as this approach gives the surgeon direct visibility and better access. In this procedure, an incision is made along the columella, the vertical strip of soft tissue separating the nostrils. With the open approach to rhinoplasty, the surgeon can alter and manipulate nasal shape with far more precision and control. Dr. Starkman will discreetly place and close the incision so that scarring is barely visible after it heals.
In closed rhinoplasty, all the incisions are made inside the nostrils, so there is no visible scarring as a result of surgery. The entire procedure is done inside the nose and allows the surgeon to access the bridge and the tip. This approach has various advantages, including a quicker procedure, less post-operative swelling, and faster healing. It also allows for better circulation to the skin in the nasal tip, as there is no incision along the columella to disrupt it. Closed rhinoplasty may be appropriate when certain minor corrections are needed to improve the shape of the nose.
