What is male rhinoplasty?
Male rhinoplasty is a reconstructive surgery that changes the shape of the nose. It is commonly known as a nose job, a plastic surgery procedure. It allows men to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose and improve any breathing issues caused by a deviated septum. If men have to correct a deviated septum or enhance the appearance of their nose, they can undergo male rhinoplasty.
Why should men get rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty has helped men add symmetry to the facial structure, enhance the shape of the nose, and minimise the larger appearance of the nose tip. With male rhinoplasty, men can make sure that the nose complements their facial features, including their cheeks, chin, and eyes.
Male rhinoplasty surgery focuses on the unique facial features of men. With that in mind, this comprehensive facial plastic surgery will help patients masculinise the nose to enhance the facial features and appearance of men.
For men, the nose commonly features a prominent, straight bridge, while women often have softer bridge and features. In many occurrences, a male nose has a higher bridge and tip projection than the female nose. Male rhinoplasty (nose job) is modified to suit male facial features, ensuring that the patient will benefit from an aesthetically pleasing nose that shows a more masculine appearance.
What happens in rhinoplasty surgery?
Like any other surgery, a nose job such as male rhinoplasty surgery proceeds with a local or general anaesthesia sedation. Your surgeon will then start by making an incision inside your nose, between your nostrils. The first thing that the surgeon will do is readjust your deviated septum towards the centre of your nose (if you have a deviated septum). Your surgeon has the ability to change the shape of your septum and nasal bones or cartilage. Some bones and cartilage can be removed or added, depending on what required the desired facial feature. The skin of the nose and tissue are replaced, and the surgeon will perform stitches to secure the nose. You will be staying in a recovery room and monitored once the surgery is complete. Because this procedure is an outpatient surgery, you might be able to leave on the same day, but if other complications arise, you are required to stay another day.
What are the benefits of male rhinoplasty

The difference between rhinoplasty from septoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery that is performed to change the shape of the nose. In most cases, rhinoplasty is also performed to improve any breathing issues.
Septoplasty is a complex surgery that is performed to fix a deviated septum. Often, septoplasty surgery is combined with rhinoplasty surgery.
Who are the best candidates for male rhinoplasty?
If you want to undergo a nose job or rhinoplasty plastic surgery, your surgeon will perform extensive analysis to determine if you are a viable candidate for the surgery. Your surgeon will examine your facial features and determine if you have any of the following facial attributes:
- A deformed nose due to an injury or trauma
- A crooked or droopy nose
- An undeveloped nose
- A bent and stuffy nose caused by nasal problems
- A flat or wide nose bridge
- Wide or large nostrils
