Rhinoplasty In Men – Can You Have A More Masculine Nose?

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is one of the most sought-after procedures by male patients. Whether it is to improve imperfections that detract from the appearance of the nose or to correct functional problems, rhinoplasty in men is an increasingly popular surgery.


What kind of men get rhinoplasty? Within the accepted values of ‘masculine’ or ‘manly,’ the male nose is characterized by being straight and slightly wider than that of women. It is also a prevailing beauty standard for men to have a larger nose. One of the main motivations for rhinoplasty in men is to give their face a more masculine appearance, as well as to improve the nose to make it more proportionate and harmonious with the rest of the face.

Other men undergo nose surgery (rhinoplasty) because they are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their noses. Disproportions, irregularities, and asymmetries are common in the nose, especially in cases where there has been some trauma. Rhinoplasty in men improves all external unaesthetic aspects of the nose, such as a prominent dorsal hump, a tip that is too high, droopy or projected, deformities resulting from some injury, etc. Functional breathing can also be improved and recovered thanks to rhinoplasty in the same surgery.

The ideal candidate for rhinoplasty in men Men and women have different types of noses. Therefore, the ideal candidate for a male rhinoplasty is a man of legal age and in good health who wishes to improve some aesthetic and/or functional aspect of his nose, such as:

A nasal tip that is too wide, narrow, upturned, or droopy. Bumps on the dorsal part of the nose, give it an aquiline appearance. A dorsum curved inward, usually accompanied by an elevated tip, or a very narrow nose, which gives the face a feminine appearance. Deviations or asymmetries that shift the nose line away from the midline of the face. An excessive size that makes the nose disproportionate to the rest of the face and makes it too noticeable.


What should a man’s nose look like?

The main goal of rhinoplasty in men (and also applicable to rhinoplasty in women) is to study the patient’s face, measurements, and proportions to remodel the nose until it is completely harmonious with the facial features, without drastically altering the patient’s traits. The ideal nose is one where the nasofrontal and nasomental angles, nasolabial angle, and nasolabial angle are closely related. Male rhinoplasty seeks to bring the patient’s nose closer to this ideal shape in his particular case, studying how the patient’s face is structured.


What is male rhinoplasty like?

The surgical process of rhinoplasty (nose plastic surgery) in men is generally performed under general anesthesia. The duration will vary depending on the approach technique (open or closed) and osteotomy (by trauma or ultrasound). After the rhinoplasty operation, a 24-hour hospital stay is recommended.

Results and post-operative care for rhinoplasty in men The results of rhinoplasty are immediate, although the post-operative splint and swelling will not allow them to be perceived. If the plastic surgeon’s recommendations are strictly followed, the swelling after rhinoplasty will subside within a few days, and the splint will be removed around a week later. However, it will not be until after the entire inflammatory process has passed that the definitive results of rhinoplasty will be seen (approximately one year).

Some post-operative recommendations for rhinoplasty in men are:

  • Sleep with your head elevated.
  • Do not eat for 6/8 hours after rhinoplasty surgery.
  • Do not blow your nose until 2/3 weeks have passed.
  • Do not resume physical exercise until 3/4 weeks have passed.
  • Contact sports can be resumed after 6/8 weeks.
  • Return to work is usually possible 1-3 weeks after rhinoplasty.
