Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2012

Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, double board certified facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist in Beverly Hills, is bringing a unique statistic to the forefront as 2012 comes to a close. According to the expert facial plastic surgeon, more men underwent primary and revision rhinoplasty surgery this year than ever before, making it the most commonly performed surgical cosmetic procedure for men in 2012.

"I believe that we’re seeing an increase in the amount of men seeking rhinoplasty procedures because people no longer have the mindset that cosmetic surgery is just for women,” said Dr. Azizzadeh. ”Clearly, men can benefit from procedures in the same way that women can.”

When performing a primary or revision rhinoplasty procedure for a man, the surgery differs from that of a woman in the sense that the importance of achieving a natural, yet masculine appearance, is the ultimate goal. Generally, the male face is much heavier and more square than that of a woman's, and requires attention to detail in a very different way than performing the surgery for a female patient.

”Undergoing a rhinoplasty has the ability to change your overall appearance immensely. Performing a rhinoplasty for my male patients involves encompassing their masculinity by making sure the nasal tip is broader than a woman’s and that the bridge appears straight, not turned upwards,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.

Dr. Azizzadeh believes that an ideal nose is achieved through listening to the patients overall goals and working together to put a customized surgical plan of approach into place.

”The best way to achieve a natural nose for both men or women is to always strive for facial balance. When your nose is in balance with your other features, the most natural result can be seen,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.

Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery and has been recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” A double-board certified surgeon in facial plastic and otolaryngology, Dr. Azizzadeh has a unique and distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
