“Rhinoplasty is a facial cosmetic procedure, usually performed to enhance the appearance or reconstruct the nose. During rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilages and bones are modified, or tissue is added, to improve the visual appeal of the nose. Rhinoplasty is also frequently performed to repair nasal fractures. When rhinoplasty is used to repair nasal fractures, the goal is to restore pre-injury appearance of the nose. Septorhinoplasty is a related procedure performed for patients who also have nasal obstruction. Septorhinoplasty not only improves the appearance of the nose, but it removes any internal obstructions and stabilizes structures that may be blocking nasal breathing.”

Los Angeles liposuction surgeon Dr. Stevens has seen the rising trend of more males seeking aesthetic enhancement over the years. “We have seen an explosive increase in male plastic surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery,” states Dr. Stevens, “Primarily it’s liposuction, eyelid surgery, facial rejuvenation, and some cases of rhinoplasty.” Dr. Stevens points out the areas that men are requesting liposuction are mainly in the chest, abdomen, and love handles or flanks. At Dr. Stevens’ practice, Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, some men are also exploring noninvasive body contouring options such as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting, which uses cryoplipolysis to freeze spot fat.”
