Male Rhinoplasty

Male rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or nose surgery, is becoming increasingly common around the world. It enables men to reshape the nose, leading to an enhanced facial aesthetic. In addition, rhinoplasty helps men correct structural defects in the nose, including those associated with a deviated septum or breathing issues.

The CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer male rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty treatments in the Beverly Hills area. Dr. Babak Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained and double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has performed many male rhinoplasty procedures over the years. He possesses the skills and experience to help men achieve the best rhinoplasty treatment results.

Male Rhinoplasty: Here's What You Need to Know

With rhinoplasty surgery, men can ensure that their nose complements the cheeks, chin, eyes and other facial features. Nose surgery has been shown to help men improve facial symmetry, resize and/or reshape the nose, minimize the appearance of imperfections on the bridge of the nose, and eliminate a bulbous nasal tip.

Rhinoplasty for men is a complex procedure and should be performed by an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. That way, men can receive comprehensive support throughout nose surgery and feel confident that they can achieve their desired treatment results.

Dr. Azizzadeh takes an in-depth approach to male rhinoplasty. He will meet with his patient, discuss nose surgery options, and respond to any concerns and questions. As a result, men are well-equipped to make informed decisions about nose surgery after an initial consultation.

How Can a Rhinoplasty Masculinize the Nose?

Male rhinoplasty surgery addresses the unique facial characteristics of men. It is a facial plastic surgery that helps a patient masculinize the nose and improve their facial appearance.

The male nose commonly features a prominent, straight bridge and a nasal tip that projects at a 90-degree angle between the nose and upper lip. Comparatively, the female nose often features a soft bridge and obtuse angle with the upper lip.

Also, in many instances, a man’s nose has a higher bridge and is wider than a woman’s nose. A man’s nose generally has a greater tip projection than a woman’s nose as well.

Male rhinoplasty is customized to a man’s facial features. It ensures that a patient can benefit from an aesthetically pleasing nose that promotes a masculine appearance.

To help a male rhinoplasty patient masculinize the nose, Dr. Azizzadeh performs an in-depth consultation. He then assesses his patient’s nose and learns about his nose surgery goals. Next, he develops a nose job treatment plan tailored to his patient’s needs.

How Does Male Rhinoplasty Differ from Rhinoplasty for Women?

Although male and female rhinoplasty procedures are similar, the aesthetic goals associated with these nose surgeries differ. Men frequently undergo rhinoplasty surgery to straighten the nasal bridge and increase the width to the middle of the nose. Comparatively, women often undergo nose job surgery to address a nose that is too wide or a nose that gives the appearance of a droopy tip.

Dr. Azizzadeh performs both male and female rhinoplasty procedures. He customizes a nose surgery to his patient and ensures that a rhinoplasty helps his patient achieve a balanced and natural-looking facial appearance.

Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty

The benefits of nose surgery for men include:

    • Improved Nose Symmetry: A patient can achieve a natural-looking nose that matches other facial features.
    • Repair of Structural Defects in the Nose: In many instances, a male nose job addresses structural defects in the nose.
    • Increased Self-Confidence: Male nose surgery can improve a patient’s facial appearance, leading to increased self-confidence.

Although rhinoplasty for men can deliver long-lasting benefits, it is important to note a patient can require several months before the full results of their treatment become visible.

Dr. Azizzadeh offers details about what patients should expect from a male rhinoplasty treatment. He will help his patient plan for nose surgery and establish realistic treatment goals.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Male Nose Surgery?

Male rhinoplasty represents a major cosmetic surgery, and the decision to undergo a nose job should not be taken lightly. Fortunately, Dr. Azizzadeh will perform a patient assessment to determine if his patient is a good candidate for nose surgery.

During a consultation, Dr. Azizzadeh will examine his patient’s facial features. Dr. Azizzadeh may deem a patient to be a good candidate for male nose surgery if he displays any of the following facial characteristics:

    • A bridge that is too high or too low
    • Short, upturned nose tip
    • Bulbous nose tip
    • Dorsal hump (hump on nose)
    • Wide or flaring nostrils
    • A nose that is too wide or too narrow
    • Droopy nose
    • Crooked nose

Dr. Azizzadeh dedicates the necessary time and resources to explain how male nose surgery is performed. By doing so, he teaches his patient about all aspects of treatment.

Male Nose Job Recovery

Rhinoplasty surgery can be a difficult time for a patient. After nose surgery, men may need to take time off from work, school, or other everyday activities to focus on what’s most important: recovering from surgery.

In the initial days after a nose job, men can experience congestion due to swelling inside their nose. Swelling and bruising around the nose can also occur. Meanwhile, these symptoms generally disappear on their own within a few days of treatment.

Dr. Azizzadeh requests several appointments with male rhinoplasty surgery patients in the first seven to 10 days after surgery. These appointments enable Dr. Azizzadeh to monitor his patient’s recovery. In addition, patients are urged to avoid strenuous physical activity for the first few weeks after male nose surgery.

Following nose job follow-up appointments in the first few weeks after surgery, Dr. Azizzadeh requests patients meet with him approximately every three months for the first year after surgery. Since Dr. Azizzadeh wants his patients to achieve the perfect nose shape, men can meet with him at regular intervals to ensure that their recovery stays on course.

It can take a patient up to two years before he sees the full results of male rhinoplasty surgery. Once the full results of treatment become transparent, they remain intact for years after treatment. However, a patient’s facial appearance can change over time due to the natural aging process, which can impact the long-term results of surgery.

Tips to Streamline Male Nose Surgery Recovery

The male nose surgery recovery process can seem long and arduous. But, there are several things that men can do to manage their recovery and avoid surgery complications.

Here are some of the recommendations that Dr. Azizzadeh offers to male nose surgery patients to help them streamline their recovery:

    • Follow Postoperative Care Instructions. Dr. Azizzadeh provides detailed instructions to help patients recover from male nose surgery. These instructions should be followed closely. If a patient has questions about postoperative care instructions, contact Dr. Azizzadeh.
    • Keep the Head Elevated at Night. Patients should avoid sleeping on their side for about six weeks after rhinoplasty surgery. During this time, keep the head elevated as much as possible while sleeping. To do so, it helps to use two to three pillows when sleeping.
    • Use Cold Compresses. Apply cold compresses to the cheeks and other areas around the nose to reduce swelling in the first few days after surgery. Be cautious when using cold compresses around the nose; applying a cold compress directly to the nose can cause cartilage or bones to shift.
    • Get Sufficient Rest. Male nose surgery can be a daunting experience. It helps to take time off from work, school, and other normal activities to rest and recover after surgery.
    • Enjoy a Healthy Diet. Eat fruits, vegetables, and other nutrient-rich foods. This can give a patient the nutrients he needs to speed up the healing process.

Dr. Azizzadeh encourages his patients to get in touch with him at any point during the recovery process if they have concerns or questions. He wants to help his patients in any way possible. As such, Dr. Azizzadeh can respond to any rhinoplasty recovery concerns or questions.

To date, Dr. Azizzadeh has performed thousands of successful rhinoplasty for men procedures. He takes a holistic approach to male nose surgery and works with his patients to help them achieve the best-possible results.

Rhinoplasty for Men: The New Norm

Male rhinoplasty, or male nose job, has become increasingly common over the last years, just like its counterpart primary rhinoplasty.

Common Cosmetic Surgeries in Males

In 2017, a little over 1.3 million men chose to undergo invasive/non-invasive cosmetic surgical procedures. The most common facial surgical procedure performed was rhinoplasty for men.

Facelift, chin augmentation (mentoplasty), and neck lift were some of the most popular male procedures.

Facial Plastic Surgery Trends Among Males

Facial plastic surgery, also referred to as facial reshaping surgery, among men is becoming exceedingly popular. Some attribute this trend to “selfie awareness”, which implies men want to look their best on social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter. Of these facial reshaping surgeries, male rhinoplasty seems to be the most popular, especially among the 18­–34 year old male demographic. Besides rhinoplasty for men, other increasingly popular cosmetic surgical procedures include facelifts, chin augmentations, neck lifts, and eyelid lifts. It is evident that the facial plastic surgery trend among men will continue to increase.

Male Rhinoplasty vs. Male Septoplasty: What Are the Differences Between the Two?

A male rhinoplasty helps men simultaneously enhance their nose symmetry and treat structural defects of the nose.
