Male Rhinoplasty

Why does a man want a rhinoplasty? There are as many answers as there are men seeking rhinoplasty. Some see themselves looking like their ancestors, those who had unattractive noses. Some have a prior injury, and they just realized that correction was possible. Some see their noses as not fitting with the rest of their faces. Others still have an excellent reason to improve their breathing and want to change some things that they have never liked while having functional improvement.

During male rhinoplasty, we change the appearance of the nose by altering those things that give the nose shape. We take away or add cartilage to the nose and allow the skin to drape itself over that scaffold. This can be performed through internal incisions only (closed or endonasal technique), or through an incision that passes over the columella and other internal incisions. That open technique allows the surgeon to visualize all of the structures of the nose and in most cases gives better control of the outcome.

A consultation begins with the patient addressing what they want changed. Most men want a strong, well-defined nose. It should be straight and symmetric. The nostrils have to be appropriately sized and shaped. We may have a great vision of how we want the nose to look, but if it’s different from the patient’s view, we will ultimately fail. Internal exam of the structure follows. We need to know what’s in there. Are there structural problems in the nose or holes in the septum that could hinder our plan?
