Many men seek improvement to their nose through male rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills. In fact, men comprise a large segment of our patients who desire cosmetic surgery. Men are more likely to have crooked and broken noses due to statistically higher involvement in contact sports and other trauma. This often leads to cosmetic changes as well as breathing problems.
What Is Male Rhinoplasty?
Male rhinoplasty is a type of surgical procedure that deals with structural and aesthetic issues associated with the nose. Its primary goal is to enhance the function and/or look of the nose while improving or retaining the masculinity of the client’s features.
Although the basic principles of the rhinoplasty procedure remain the same for both men and women, rhinoplasty in men require a slightly different approach. While women may desire a smaller nose, lower bridge, and small tip to match their delicate features, a nose with that appearance will look unnatural and fake. Male rhinoplasty require a delicate balance between refinement and the natural male appearance. In other words, the male nose needs to be strong with a strong bridge (straight profile rather than a scoopy low bridge), with a well defined but not narrow tip and it cannot be turned up as much as women (over-rotation). Also we use extra gentle technique with males to minimize bruising. In general, we want our patients to go back to normal daily life as soon as possible and men do not always feel comfortable wearing concealer to hide bruising, so prevention is key.
Dr. Jumaily has the skills and aesthetic judgement to preserve the masculinity of the male face and nose to produce natural results. The ideal male aesthetic is a well balanced look of masculinity and refinement that caters to the patient’s desires and goals.
Ideal Candidates for a Male Rhinoplasty Procedure
You may be a good candidate for a male nose job if you have an overly high/overly low nasal bridge, a bulbous or rounded nose tip, a droopy nasal tip, or flared nostrils.
The best candidates for male rhinoplasty are generally healthy men with realistic goals and a positive outlook. Ideally, you should be a non-smoker or able to stop smoking for a prolonged period of time.
During your consultation for male rhinoplasty surgery, you will undergo a physical examination of your nasal region and facial features. Dr. Jumaily will also ask you about your medical history.
Dr. Jumaily wants his clients to feel at ease with the procedure, so he will take time to listen to your goals and your motivation for the nose job. He will explain the procedure to you in detail and answer all your questions to give you a better understanding of this surgery. Finally, he will create a suitable surgical plan and set a date for the procedure.
What Is a Male Rhinoplasty Procedure Like?
Just like any nose job, the male rhinoplasty procedure employs customized methods to tackle the unique needs of every client effectively. Dr. Jumaily will see to it that he retains the characteristic masculinity of your nose while at the same time harmonizing your nose’s shape with your facial features.
When it comes to nose jobs, there are two techniques that plastic surgeons often use: the open method and the closed method.
The closed method is performed by creating very small incisions inside the nostrils. The open method is performed by creating an incision across the columella, which is a segment of external skin situated between the nostrils. This technique is ideal for more complex cases, since it involves lifting the skin from the cartilage and bone.
Following the structural modifications, stitches will be used to close the incisions. A splint may be placed inside the nose for support. Male rhinoplasty surgeries typically take two to three hours or longer.
Male Rhinoplasty Healing and Recovery
Male rhinoplasty surgery requires an ample recovery period for best results. You may be advised to take some time off from work or school. Steer clear of rigorous physical activities for the first few weeks following the surgery.
During the first days of the healing period, you will experience congestion because of swelling within the nose. Bruising and swelling around the nose can also occur, but these symptoms will recede within just a few days. Mild or moderate discomfort can be eased with pain medication as prescribed.
Cost of Male Rhinoplasty Surgery
The cost of a male rhinoplasty will depend on the difficulty of the procedure, the anesthesia used, and other relevant factors. Additional details about the overall price of your rhinoplasty will be discussed during your consultation.
