Strong facial features speak volumes about men. The nose is one of the most prominent features on their faces. It is also a feature that is more likely to suffer trauma through sports. Daniel Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, performs male rhinoplasty on men living in Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding communities to redefine the nose and enhance their facial appearance.
What is Male Rhinoplasty?
Male rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is a way to restructure the nose due to several conditions. This procedure can address breathing issues that exist because of a structural defect inside the nose. It also corrects the shape of the nose after a blunt injury to it and/or simply reshapes it to fit better with other facial features, whether by reducing or enlarging the size of the nose.
Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty
Men who have had rhinoplasty attest that it is one of the best decisions they have made for the following reasons:
- Better sleep after breathing is corrected
- Feel better about their appearance
- Gain more self-confidence
Is Male Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
If you have breathing issues, have suffered an injury that left your nose misshaped, or simply want a stronger, more proportionate nose, male rhinoplasty may be right for you. While people are not quick to mention that you have a great nose, they are quick to notice if you have a big, crooked or misshapen nose.
How Involved is Male Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty for men involves major surgery even though it is usually performed on an outpatient basis. As with most rhinoplasty procedures, Dr. Man performs an “open” rhinoplasty where he can see the entire nose – inside and out – to correct functional defects, as well as reshape the nose to a desired shape. Performing it this way also shortens healing and lessens the amount of swelling and bruising.
With this procedure, incisions are hidden in the creases of the nose, so scarring is not visible. The entire procedure takes about two hours.
How is the Recovery from Male Rhinoplasty?
Immediately following the surgery, absorbent packing is placed inside the nose, as well as splints along the outside to provide structure. As with most of Dr. Man’s surgeries, patients are taken to the recovery area where they rest until the anesthesia begins to wear off. It is important that someone stay with you for the first 24 hours. If that is not possible, you may elect to stay overnight at our center the first night following surgery to receive care during that time and allow for complete rest. Our center also has specialized recovery options including chest wall cooling methods to reduce pain and swelling, a hyperbaric chamber, and oxygen treatments to speed healing.
After surgery, we will provide you with instructions about postsurgical care, including information about:
- Surgical dressings
- Normal symptoms you will experience
- Potential signs of complications
Dr. Man is the only one to remove the packing and splints, which usually takes place a week following the procedure.
How Much Does Male Rhinoplasty Cost?
The cost of male rhinoplasty varies with each patient depending on the purpose of the nose job, the extent of the procedure and whether it is performed in conjunction with other procedures. Dr. Man discusses the costs during a consultation as well as payment options and financing.
What Do I Do Next?
If you have breathing issues or want to reshape your nose to look more proportionate with the rest of your face, we recommend you schedule an appointment with Dr. Man for a consultation. He takes time to discuss your issues, evaluate your nose, and recommend treatment options to get the nose you want.
Other things he needs to review prior to your rhinoplasty include:
- Full medical history
- Previous surgeries and medical treatments
- Allergies and sensitivities
- Current medications
- Current overall health
Male rhinoplasty corrects and reshapes the nose so that breathing is easier and the nose has a more structured form.
