Man thinking about having plastic surgeryStep aside, women! New research shows that men opting for plastic surgery is on the rise! The latest trend in cosmetic surgery for men comes as more people are beginning to embrace stronger facial features like ethnic, non-traditional noses. NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell chimed in on the latest trend with Fox News! Check it out:

Building the Perfect Face-New Trends in Cosmetic Surgery for Men

While stronger facial features may be what’s “hot” in plastic surgery, men see it as a chance to achieve a more masculine look. To help fulfill this look, plastic surgeons recommend enhancing facial definition by balancing the contours of the face.

“I did a rhinoplasty and a chin implant on a famous actor who felt his nose was too large and his chin not very strong.  We left a bit of a bump on the nose, so it still looked like his, just a better version,” says NYC plastic surgeon, Dr. Darrick Antell.  “No one, including the producer on his next project, noticed that he’d had anything done to his nose.”

While simply enhancing or trimming back the nose can help minimize or increase the prominence of the chin, procedures such as rhinoplasty and chin implants are often combined. The combination of nasal surgery with chin augmentation will improve the measurement of facial features for a harmonized look. Both the nose and chin work together in defining your look. An overly large nose can cause a chin to appear smaller, while an overly large chin can cause the nose to appear smaller.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, chin implants have recently soared by 71 percent and last year alone, rhinoplasty ranked in the top 5 cosmetic surgical procedures. Dr. Antell explains one reason why more people can now fit facial surgery into the tightest of schedule, “Instruments have gotten smaller,” he says, “which means incisions are smaller and heal faster."

When you are unsatisfied with the contours of your face, chin implants in NYC and rhinoplasty may be the right option for you. Dr. Antell and our staff welcome any questions you may have about rhinoplasty or chin implants in NYC.

The Balance of Beauty with Chin Implants in NYC

Beautiful blond woman with a chin implant in NYCMany of us have different definitions of beauty. Some believe a beautiful person must have both looks and personality, while others may believe beauty comes from an eye-catching appearance, or simply a loveable charisma. If you asked a scientist however, he might have a completely different answer. This is because scientists believe that beauty is in fact measurable. 

According to the scientific golden ratio of beauty, the measurements between an individual’s facial features are what create a “beautiful” person. Mathematicians have deemed that the ratio between the nose and mouth should be 1.618. The more rationed an individual’s face is, the more a person’s looks meet the aesthetic appeal of what society sees as beauty, whether we realize it or not.   

While all facial features pertain to the golden ratio of beauty, some are more prominent than others are. The two most influential facial features that influence an individual’s look are their nose and chin. Both the nose and chin work together in defining your look. An overly large nose can cause a chin to appear smaller, while an overly large chin can cause the nose to appear smaller. When you are unsatisfied with the contours of your face, chin implants in NYC and rhinoplasty may be the right option for you.

During the chin implant procedure in NYC, Dr. Antell will help you determine the best size and shape implant to suit your individual feature. If you choose to combine both chin implants and nose surgery in NYC, Dr. Antell will perform them the same day for an easier recovery time.

Treat Yourself to a New Nose with Rhinoplasty in NYC for the Holidays!

Rhinoplasty surgery

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer didn’t have many options to correct his nose besides smudging mud on its tip, which eventually popped off at inopportune moments. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C.S. offers rhinoplasty in New York City as a permanent solution for cosmetically embarrassing and functionally impaired noses. Attractive profiles are contingent upon balanced facial features, specifically the nose and chin. If you are self-conscious about your nose’s appearance, would like to improve your profile, or are having trouble breathing through your nose, check one item off your holiday wish list this year by considering rhinoplasty in NYC.

Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C.S. is able to perform a variety of alterations to the nose during rhinoplasty in New York. He can reduce or increase its size, change the shape of the nasal bridge or tip, adjust the angle between the nose and upper lip, and narrow the span of the nostrils. Dr. Antell will discuss the exact features patients would like altered during the initial consultation, so both Dr. Antell and the patient are synchronized in their vision of the expected results.

In some cases, just the tip of the nose is altered.  That would be a Tip Plasty and can even be performed under local anesthesia.   Rhinoplasty in NYC may involve sedation (twilight sleep) or local anesthesia, depending on the type of rhinoplasty, either open or closed, and both are done on an outpatient basis. Open rhinoplasty in NY involves sedation (twilight sleep) and a tiny external scar under the nose, but can sometimes be more precise for work on the tip and grafting. Closed rhinoplasty goes through the inside of the nose, so no external scars are visible. After surgery, a splint will be applied to the nose during recovery. Some minor bleeding is common after rhinoplasty in New York City, and patients are encouraged not to blow their nose for the first one to two weeks after surgery. Patients can expect swelling and bruising after surgery to also last approximately 7 to 10 days.

Patients will notice substantial improvement in the nose’s symmetry, the features they specifically wanted altered, and the overall balance with other facial features.  The final last bits of swelling take 6 to 12 months to completely subside.   Rhinoplasty in New York can subtly improve your entire appearance simply by modifying a few nasal features, except, perhaps, should your nose glow. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C.S. and his staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about rhinoplasty. You may contact his New York, NY office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Antell.
