Rhinoplasty has become one of the top plastic surgeries requested by men, who now account for about one quarter of all procedures performed. Because the nose is positioned at the center of the face, many men place high importance on the appearance of this prominent feature. Not everyone wants the same nasal appearance, however, which is why Dr. Alexander Ereso carefully devises a surgical plan that addresses the precise issues the patient wants to correct. With male patients in specific, he will take an approach that improves the nose’s appearance without sacrificing any of its more masculine traits.

Recovery And Results Of Rhinoplasty For Men
In the initial days following surgery, you will need to always keep your head elevated and take medication to moderate the pain. Most patients will choose to take 7-10 days off of work to recover and let the visible swelling subside. You will meet with Dr. Ereso multiple times in the months to follow to verify that your nose is healing according to plan and that there are no complications. Because the nose is especially sensitive, it may take as long as one year for the swelling to fully subside and the nose to settle into its final, intended position.
Risks And Safety Concerns Of Rhinoplasty For Men
