What Is Male Rhinoplasty?

Male rhinoplasty, also known as a male nose job, is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the overall appearance of a man’s nose. The surgery can also be performed to correct certain breathing problems. Typically, the most important aspect of male rhinoplasty in New Orleans is ensuring that the patient’s new nose provides the overall facial appearance with balance and harmony. Because men and women have different facial structures, male rhinoplasty must be approached slightly differently than female rhinoplasty to achieve the best possible results.

Men seeking a nose job often want one or more of the following adjustments made:

  • Straightening the dorsum (nasal bridge) for a more balanced profile
  • Reducing the size of the nose to better fit their face
  • Smoothing out bumps or humps on the nasal bridge
  • Reshaping or lifting the nasal tip
  • Bringing down the slope of the nose to achieve a more masculine appearance
  • Improving the symmetry of the nose

When performing male rhinoplasty, Dr. Miller customizes the procedure based on the man’s preferences and facial structure. Typically, the goal is to enhance the overall nasal appearance while maintaining the masculinity of the nose.

Expectations of Male Rhinoplasty New Orleans

Before undergoing male rhinoplasty, you’ll first have a consultation with Dr. Miller. He’ll examine your nose and talk with you about what you’re hoping to achieve with the procedure. Based on your specific aesthetic goals, the doctor will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan.

Male rhinoplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. After the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Miller will begin by making small incisions around your nose; the specific placements of these cuts will depend on your unique treatment plan. He will then carefully make the necessary adjustments to your nasal structure and appearance, removing bone and cartilage as needed to create your desired result. Overall, the procedure usually takes between 1.5 and 2.5 hours to complete. Once he’s finished, Dr. Miller will close your incisions with sutures and apply bandages to the treatment area.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

The recovery period after male rhinoplasty varies from patient to patient depending on the extent of the procedure. Typically, one to two weeks of rest are required before returning to work. Most patients experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but these symptoms will gradually fade over several weeks. You should also wait at least four to six weeks before participating in strenuous physical activity.

Am I a Candidate for Male Rhinoplasty?

Men who are unsatisfied with their nasal appearance could be good candidates for male rhinoplasty. Ideal candidates for the procedure should:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Have a fully developed nose
  • Have the desire to improve their nasal appearance
  • Have the desire to correct breathing issues
  • Have realistic expectations
