Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can correct physical or cosmetic problems. Men who are dissatisfied with the proportions of their face or nose can find rhinoplasty a small but impactful adjustment to enhance facial harmony and create a more attractive or masculine face. It also can correct structural defects in the nose that impair breathing or lead to chronic infection.
When To Consider Rhinoplasty for Men
If you have a nose that doesn’t “fit your face,” whether from birth, accident or disease, or a nose that, with slight adjustment, would improve overall appearance and facial proportions, rhinoplasty for men could be the solution. Male patients with internal nasal deformities causing health issues also are excellent candidates for surgery. We will work with you to establish individualized surgery goals and create computer imaging possibilities, so that Dr. Yarish and the patient are in agreement and complete communication.
What Happens During a Nose Surgery
Usually, for cosmetic purposes, incisions will be made to reshape the nose from the inside, with occasional small external incisions needed. The new shape is created through trimming and moving of cartilage and bone. If a breathing problem is being corrected, the surgeon will manipulate internal cartilage and straighten the septum. Sometimes, male patients opt for chin enlargement to improve the shape of both nose and chin profile at the same time, if that is a parallel concern.
What to Expect Afterward
Recovery depends on the extent of the rhinoplasty procedure. If there is significant structural work performed, the patient goes home with a splint to immobilize the bone and cartilage in their new shape, usually removed within a week. In some cases, nasal packing is also applied to protect internal changes to the septum, but would be removed within days.
Postoperative pain and swelling is expected, but treated with medication, and should subside within two weeks. When the nose is fully healed, results are improved breathing and a more natural-looking nose in proportion to your face.
