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. Do you have concerns about the shape or proportion of your nose? Is the overall appearance of your face dissatisfying? Many women and men choose nose job surgery to increase their self-confidence and satisfaction in their facial appearance, or simply breathe more freely.

Rhinoplasty For Men


Male Rhinoplasty is one of the cosmetic procedures that can most greatly improve one’s 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 accident and injury
  • Improving or restoring breathing
  • Complementing other facial surgeries, such facelift or chin surgery.

Dr Drielsma will assess and discuss your nose, and the balance of your facial features with you. It is not uncommon to mention chin projection. A weak chin may make the nose appear large for your face.  In this situation, Dr Drielsma may discuss chin augmentation with you. The profile of the nose can be altered to give a straight appearance or a softer “retruse” appearance with relative tip projection.

Dr Drielsma will discuss and clarify these options with you at time of consultation.

Male rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anesthetic 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.
