According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ 2012 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, rhinoplasty is the most often requested cosmetic surgery procedure among men. The male population also prefers blepharoplasty and facelifts over other facial plastic surgeries.
Why the popularity of these procedures for men? Appearance is regarded highly in our society. Statistics have shown that attractive people are more successful in their careers and in social situations. Men in particular may feel a strong urge to undergo cosmetic procedures for the sake of their job. Here in South Florida, particularly in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, the business environment requires and youthful and rested appearance. For this reason, many men decide to undergo plastic surgery. In Dr. Bustillo’s office in Miami, about forty percent of the patients that undergo plastic surgery are men.
Male facial plastic surgery is no longer a secret. Last year, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, 204,146 men underwent cosmetic surgical procedures on the face and body. That number does not include the 1,049,007 who had minimally-invasive procedures such as Botox, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. The rise in popularity has encouraged others to follow along and discredit the idea that plastic surgery for men is taboo. Clearly, the numbers prove that many men are undergoing facial rejuvenation procedures.
As noted earlier, many men are selecting to have rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Bustillo in his Miami office as the “go to” procedure for facial harmony. Reshaping the nose improves the balance among other features of the face. Surgery can also correct deformities and breathing problems. Strong profiles are preferred to maintain a masculine appearance. Dr. Bustillo will discuss the features of your nose and provide computer imaging in the consultation.
A typical rhinoplasty procedure takes about two hours and is usually performed under general anesthesia. The surgery may be performed on men as young as 16 years old, once the nasal skeleton has completed its growth. The recovery period is about six days.
