In general, surgical techniques are the same for men and women in this surgery, however, they differ in terms of aesthetic purpose and principle. Nose and lip angle, nasal bridge and nasal bone interventions should be planned differently in male patients in order to avoid a feminine appearance.
In men, the curved nose causes an unpleasant appearance. The nasal bridge is straight and it is more accurate that the nasal tip is at the same level as the nasal bridge. Moreover, leaving a very small hump on the nasal bridge will create a more natural-looking and beautiful result.
The ideal angle between the nose and upper lip in women is 100-105 degrees. In men, this angle should not exceed 90-95 degrees. If this angle is reduced, an upturned nose structure is formed, leading to a highly feminine appearance in male patients.
Unlike female patients, nasal bones should not be refined in male patients. If the nasal bones are brought too close to each other or if they are refined too much than it should be when looked from the front, a feminine appearance will occur again.
In most of the male patients, balancing nasal aesthetic surgeries involving the expansion of some points of the nose with cartilage grafts and refining of some points are preferred to avoid making the nose too small.
Rhinoplasty is recommended for patients with snoring problems.
Most of the male patients suffer from nasal congestion due to septum deviation and large turbinates (which are also called nasal concha).
The most common cause of snoring during sleep is nasal congestion. Rhinoplasty is recommended for patients with nasal congestion and snoring problems since both the deviated septum is repaired and the turbinates are reduced.
