Did you know, men are 2-3 times more likely to suffer from sleep apnoea than women? This can cause a variety of issues, including interrupted sleep. If left untreated, more serious health concerns can arise.
While cosmetic surgery procedures are most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, they can also be used to improve health concerns. Male rhinoplasty is used to reduce the symptoms related to sleep apnoea in men, improving their quality of life as a result.
Today we’ll be looking into the struggles men can face when it comes to breathing and sleeping, and how male rhinoplasty can aid these problems.
It’s very common for men to struggle with snoring. However, sleep apnoea is a more serious issue that causes breathing to stop and start during the night, leading to snoring, snorting, choking, and disrupted sleep.
Having difficulty breathing during sleep can cause mood swings and headaches, and makes it hard to concentrate during the day. It can also lead to long-term medical conditions like high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
This can be due to getting older, gaining weight, and lifestyle factors like smoking. However, narrowed airways, a deviated septum and nasal congestion are common causes, often due to problems in the nasal passage and cartilage.
But what’s the long-term remedy for sleep apnoea?
If you struggle with the symptoms mentioned above, we recommend visiting your GP for a diagnosis.
From here, you could be referred to a sleep clinic for advice on lifestyle changes you can make and devices you can use to help make breathing easier during the night.
However, if the main cause is your nasal structure, a male nose job is the perfect way to correct and diminish the problems associated with sleep apnoea in men.
Male rhinoplasty (male nose job) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reshapes the nose.
While it refines and perfects the shape, it also unlocks the nasal septum to relieve breathing problems.
A male nose job helps to straighten out the partition in a man’s nose between the two nasal cavities. By widening the nasal airway, congestion is reduced to make breathing easier - improving the patient’s health and well-being.
Whether it’s down to age, injury, or another factor, a nose job has the ability to improve the structure and correct any problems associated with sleep apnoea in men.
