A rhinoplasty or “nose job” for men is one of the most complex and delicate of all facial surgeries. While this procedure is commonly performed throughout the USA, results can vary widely.
It is important that your plastic surgeon is known to offer top level surgical skills and have the experience and a deep understanding of the male facial structure to correctly perform the procedure. When performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, your reshaped nose will be balanced with your other features correctly.
A carefully re-sculpted nose structure will be in balance with your other features and bring out the best in your appearance. Every rhinoplasty procedure is customized and planned with great care and attention to detail when treating our male patients. As every man is different, the planning phase is a vital part of the process.
Some of the issues that are resolved with a custom nose job include:

One advantage we offer men patients at our Charlotte plastic surgery center is that patients considering a rhinoplasty can “try on” various new shapes with our digital system.
You will be able to see what various changes in size and shape will look like on your unique facial structure.
Two types of procedures could be used in performing a rhinoplasty.
The open technique involves making an incision in the small strip of tissue and cartilage between the nostrils, where it is virtually invisible once healed. This procedure may be appropriate when extensive restructuring is needed, including:
A closed procedure involves accessing the nose structure through the nostrils and leaves no visible scarring. This technique is appropriate for men who are struggling with an unattractive nose structure, but require less extensive treatment:
Understanding which procedure will be needed requires a close examination of your face and the use of our digital system to help communicate the changes you hope for. We work closely with our male patients to develop a surgical treatment plan that produces a nose structure and shape that looks balanced, and perfectly suits the male facial features.
It is important that men planning the procedure have realistic expectations about the surgery and recovery. We provide men being treated at our clinic with full aftercare instructions, along with personal discussions about both. Once the surgery is complete, you will feel tired and will need rest—most patients say they felt fatigued for several days.
Use ice packs on your face to help reduce pain, swelling, and bruising. Keep your head elevated, including while sleeping. Pain can also be controlled with over-the-counter painkillers, which are usually sufficient. Chewing also moves the nose structure, so eating soft foods keeps the surgical site safer. You will need to avoid bending over, lifting, or straining for the initial two weeks of recovery.
