2. Men want noses like Tom Cruise’s and Jude Law’s for the perfect “masculine profile”
Rhinoplasty is the most popular surgery among men, with 55,024 procedures being performed in 2016, a three percent increase from the year prior.
Many men are seeking this procedure for a variety of reasons.
According to Dr Richard Winters, a New Jersey-based plastic surgeon, men are bypassing the stigma that says only women, actors and models can get these procedures and they want a boost in self-esteem.
Dr Zuckerman said men also want better, more masculine profiles.
He said his patients sometimes bring in pictures of Jude Law, Tom Cruise, George Clooney and Ben Affleck for inspiration.
An ideal nose in men, according to Dr Zuckerman, is one that is an angle of 90 degrees to the face and slightly prominent. But most of all, it should fit in with the rest of a person’s facial features.
Dr Winter said some men opt for a nose job if they have a nose that’s off-center, has a big tip, has a bulbous tip, has a droopy tip, has a bump, is too wide or too thin, or if they feel their nose doesn’t go with the rest of their face.
These procedures, which can cost between $5,000 and $10,000, can include the removal of bone, cartilage – structures in the nose that provide form and support, or the addition of synthetic tissues.
There are several types of rhinoplasty techniques plastic surgeons use.
One of those methods involve making an incisions in the area between the nostrils and then between the nostrils and then makes additional incisions inside the nose.
Another technique, called the “closed method” is a less invasive type of procedure that involves making incisions inside the nostrils and working beneath the skin with limited visual access.
There’s also a non-surgical procedure that only requires the use of a filler, such as Botox, to make small augmentations.
