Rhinoplasty For Men

Most of us notice someone’s nose only when it is not in balance with their face, whether it’s too large, too wide, or has a bump.  If you are concerned with the shape or proportion of your nose, you are likely dissatisfied with your overall facial appearance.  Many women and men choose nose job surgery to increase their self-confidence and satisfaction in their facial appearance, or simply breathe more freely.


Male Rhinoplasty is one of the cosmetic procedures that can most greatly improve ones overall appearance.  It is appropriate for adults, as well as teens, as long as they are about 16 years old and their facial growth is complete.  Our patients choose male rhinoplasty for their own personal reasons that often include:

  • Enhancing the shape or size of the nose
  • Repairing damage caused by an accidents and injury
  • Improving or restoring breathing
  • Complementing other facial surgeries, such face lift or chin surgery.

When assessing your nose, the balance of your facial features will also be assessed and discussed with you.  It is not uncommon for the chin projection to be mentioned as a weak chin may make the nose appear large for your face.  In this situation, chin augmentation may be discussed with you.  The profile of the nose can be altered to give a straight appearance or a softer “retruse” appearance with relative tip projection.  These options will be discussed and clarified with you at time of consultation.

Male rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anaesthetic with a one night hospital stay.  The procedure takes about 1 to 2 hours, although more complicated procedures can take longer to complete.  Most incisions are concealed inside the nose or along its natural creases, eventually leaving no noticeable evidence of the surgery.
