It is not just women who want to look their best and feel confident in their own self image. During recent years, male rhinoplasty procedures have increased in popularity. Dr. Kevin Sadati notes this trend, and recognizes that there are several issues that are specific to men when having a rhinoplasty procedure performed.
For one, a man cannot have a rhinoplasty performed until he is about 17 years old. This is because a male facial bone is not fully grown and mature until that age, and a rhinoplasty should not be performed on a nose that still might continue to grow and change. In addition, it is important that a man considering rhinoplasty chooses a surgeon who has experience and takes the time to evaluate each patient individually. An expert rhinoplasty surgeon recognizes that a male nose looks different than a female nose; therefore a male rhinoplasty should be performed differently. A man who wishes to have a rhinoplasty done does not necessarily want a feminized and petite nose.
Dr. Kevin Sadati, of Top Rhinoplasty Physicians, takes the time to ensure his patients who are going to undergo a male rhinoplasty procedure are not only physically fit but also in good mental health as well. A male rhinoplasty needs to achieve the desired results in order to protect the patient from severe psychological damage. While most women are looking for soft, delicate noses, a man is looking for a straight and masculine nose that is also aesthetically pleasing. Dr. Kevin Sadati, as someone who has studied the human form not only in medicine but also in art, recognizes this important difference and it shows in the results of his male patients. Many surgeons in Southern California refer their difficult male rhinoplasty cases to him for the best results.
