Elective rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, is the most common plastic surgery procedure performed on men, with over 23,000 male rhinoplasty surgeries performed yearly. Male rhinoplasty is a specialized surgery that must be performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon such as Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S. in Aventura. Dr. Rubinstein is among the top providers of plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures for both male patients in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida area.
What is Rhinoplasty for Men?
Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, is a surgical procedure that corrects and reshapes the nose. Rhinoplasty is also used to correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose or nostrils. Rhinoplasty for men is extremely common, and men often seek to reshape their nose to correct its size or proportions, repair tissue damaged by injury, and/or create a natural appearance that is proportional and harmonious with the eyes, lips, and other facial features. Dr. Rubinstein stresses a natural, masculine appearance that is in proportion to the overall facial structure. Male patients often seek rhinoplasty to attain a wider, more defined masculine nose rather than the narrower, more feminine nose typically desired by female patients.
What are the Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty?
Male rhinoplasty surgery may correct such problems as a nose that is off-center, has a bulbous or droopy tip, a bump or “ski slope,” a nose that is either too broad or too thin, or virtually any other aspect of your nose that makes you unhappy. Rhinoplasty surgery can alter:
- The size of your nose in relation to other facial structures.
- The width of the nose at the bridge.
- Your profile, including the removal of visible humps or depressions on the bridge.
- The tip of the nose, be it large or bulbous, drooping, or upturned.
- Nostrils that are too large, wide, flared, or upturned.
- A nose that is not symmetrical or properly centered.
Rhinoplasty may also repair damaged tissue caused by past injury, and clear up breathing problems caused by such structural problems as a deviated septum. Although septum repair alone does not alter the look of your nose, many men choose to make further corrections with rhinoplasty as well.
Who is a Good Candidate for Male Rhinoplasty?
Any man or teen boy whose goals are realistic and enjoys overall good health may be an excellent candidate for male rhinoplasty. In the case of teens, Dr. Rubinstein will need to examine you to make sure that your facial bones are fully developed before performing the surgery.
How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure that requires a different approach for each patient. Dr. Rubinstein will work closely with you to determine the best modalities to address your particular concerns and problem areas, in order to attain the results you desire. Rhinoplasty is normally performed on an outpatient basis under sedation, and the procedure itself may last between one and two hours. Once the procedure is completed, a splint may be placed to help your nose keep its new shape for a few days. Dr. Rubinstein may apply soft absorbent packing inside the nose to offer structural support.
Why Choose Dr. Rubinstein for Male Rhinoplasty?
It is important to choose a plastic surgeon with extensive experience in rhinoplasty and all the details of nasal surgery, particularly for male patients. Dr. Rubinstein has extensive experience performing rhinoplasty for men, and will make sure that your nose looks natural from both the profile and full frontal view. It takes a true expert in this very specialized surgery to ensure that all the facial features are in total harmony and that the nose is sculpted to look fully natural. Attention to details such as the shape and size of the tip, size and proportion of the nostrils, bridge width, and other important factors will result in a nose that looks perfectly natural, masculine, and in balance with all of your facial features.
