The nose is a prominent feature of the face that creates balance and attractiveness. When people are unhappy with the appearance of their nose, their ego and self-confidence may suffer. Men often feel incredibly self-conscious about their facial appearance in the workplace and socially. Because men tend to have a larger nose, if a man’s nose is unattractive, it can indeed affect the entire look of a man’s face. A saddle nose deformity is one distortion that can be especially detrimental because it is very noticeable. Whether caused by trauma, drug use, weakened or deteriorated nasal septum cartilage, or certain medical conditions, saddle nose repair surgery should only be performed by a facial plastic surgeon with years of experience and expertise.
Male skin is characteristically thicker and oiler than female skin. Understanding the physiognomies of male skin is just one aspect of performing successful saddle nose repair for men. As a pioneer in saddle nose deformity correction and repair, Dr. Maurice Khosh is renowned for exceptional saddle nose repair results. His successful practice in Manhattan, New York, provides the restoration of structure and aesthetics of the nose for his patients.
Male saddle nose repair and other rhinoplasty procedures typically have different goals to achieve. Men generally prefer a strong, more defined nose that compliments their overall appearance. For men who suffer from saddle nose deformity, their entire look can be negatively impacted by the bridge of the nose that has an abnormal shape due to collapse. From the profile angle, the nose appears concave, similar to a saddle, which is where the term “saddle nose” comes from.
