Many northern California men seek consultation for rhinoplasty also referred to as a nose job. This is one procedures where men as early as their teens and twenties pursue cosmetic surgery. There are many reasons to undergo a rhinoplasty. Men frequently have a higher incidence of injury to the nose from sports or trauma which can result in a deviation or twisted appearance to the nose or even breathing difficulties.
When evaluating the male nose for a rhinoplasty Dr. Jill Hessler takes into consideration many factors including the skin thickness, the strength of the cartilage, and the overall size of the patient. Men typically will have a stronger and larger nose than women with less rotation or upturn to the tip of the nose. It is important to maintain a strong profile with adequate length to the nose to preserve a masculine appearance. Dr. Hessler will discuss your concerns and desires during your consultation. Depending on the extent of the changes the surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation at our Palo Alto / San Jose facial plastic surgery center or under general anesthesia. Dr. Hessler also has operating privileges and clinical appointment at Stanford University Hospital.
