Rhinoplasty is among the most challenging procedures that a plastic surgeon will perform. In men, the most common reason for seeking rhinoplasty is to correct nasal imperfections. Additionally, men may have experienced an injury caused by sports, activities, accidents or work-related mishaps. Dr. Joshua Lampert, praised by some of his patients for delivering excellent results from rhinoplasty surgery in Miami, feels that nasal surgery is as much of an art form as it is a technical challenge.
Male rhinoplasty achieves improvements in several areas. Since the nose is in the center of the face, balance between the size of the nose and the overall size and shape of the face must be achieved. The nose should also function properly, allowing free flow of air into the lungs. Often an injury has resulted in a decrease in functionality and nasal airway obstruction. Nasal airway obstruction can be repaired while the exterior appearance is also corrected.
The surgical adjustments made to the nose bone and cartilage are made internally. Dr. Lampert is not only a technically skilled surgeon but he is also a classically trained sculptor, which affords him an added layer of expertise to apply to his male rhinoplasty patients in Miami. Whether he is repairing an injury or adjusting the proportionate balance, his attention to detail results in successful aesthetic nose surgery within his Miami practice.
Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty
Dr. Lampert’s male rhinoplasty patients attest to a great improvement in their quality of life after rhinoplasty. Not only do they have a boost in self-confidence and a better-looking nose, but many patients also experience a significant improvement in functionality and nasal airflow. Improved breathing through the nose can provide a better sleep experience by eliminating nasal airway obstruction and allowing air to flow into the lungs unimpeded by a deviated septum or other malformations within the nose. Male patients who have experienced Dr. Lampert’s skill are pleased that their appearance has not been overly altered – only brought into a natural balance.
Considering Rhinoplasty in Miami?
There are many cosmetic and functional defects that Dr. Lampert addresses when assessing a potential patient. Some of them include:
- Decreasing a bump on the bridge of the nose
- Fashioning a more aesthetic nasal tip and treating the bulbous tip
- Reducing enlarged dorsal humps or repairing a hooked nose appearance
- Decreasing the length of the long nose
- Increases the length of a short nose
- Creating a smooth aesthetic nasal and facial profile
- Reducing enlarged turbinates or removing nasal polyps which obstruct nasal breathing
- Septoplasty or repair of a deviated septum to straighten the nose and improve airflow through it
- Correction of the crooked nose or deviated nose
- Repairing collapsed nostrils or improving a wide nostril base
Candidates for rhinoplasty surgery are in good health and do not smoke. Smoking interferes with healing by restricting the blood supply and oxygen saturation. Smoking can increase the risk of all complications and create the potential need for revisional surgery.
Dr. Lampert works with each patient to understand their specific goals and desires. Once this is understood, Dr. Lampert gives his recommendations on how to achieve these goals. Occasionally, patients have cosmetic surgery goals that are not realistic. For each of his patients, Dr. Lampert will share his insight and spend time explaining reasonable expectations, with the ultimate goal of an outcome that greatly improves self-esteem and quality of life.
Before & Afters
All plastic surgeons should be judged on the aesthetic merits of their work. Review Dr. Lampert’s before and after gallery to see what he has accomplished.
There will be significant swelling and some bruising for the first week to 14 days following the surgery. Pain and discomfort are easily managed with light analgesic medication. Most patients report very little discomfort from this procedure.
The initial 12 week period will have the greatest amount of change. During this time, any splints or tape will be removed as well as any non-dissolving sutures. By the 2nd week, bruising and swelling will have diminished to the point that many patients can return to their normal daily activities, as long as these are not strenuous. Dr. Lampert will advise patients with physically active jobs regarding when they may resume work.
It will take a year for all of the swelling to subside, the scars to fully mature, and the full benefit of the surgery to fully settle. Over the course of the year, it will be normal for swelling to come and go and for the nose to continue to settle into the final shape that Dr. Lampert so meticulously created.
