Male Rhinoplasty when performed correctly, will be based upon a full understanding of the differences between male and female noses. While each patient is approached as a unique case, there are certain characteristics that are subconsciously associated with a male nose and should be incorporated into a customized rhinoplasty surgical plan.
Creating a Masculine Nose with Rhinoplasty
While many plastic surgeons perform nose surgery on women, Dr. Siegel is known as the “go-to” for male patients seeking nose reshaping in Houston. Men, to retain a strong, masculine look, will require a very different surgical approach. Rather than creating a very sculptured look, the nose should bring strength and balance to the other appealing male features. Dr. Siegel is a very talented facial plastic surgeon who is known for his artistic eye and outstanding surgical abilities in this customized surgery.
What Makes A Nose Appear More Masculine?
- Tip Rotation: Less upturned (less rotated tips), or straighter tips are perceived more masculine.
- Tip Projection: Shorter noses on men should be avoided as they tend to be perceived as more feminine
- Nose Bridge: Straight or slightly full bridges appear more masculine.
- Nose Width: The width of the bridge should not be made too thin, and the tip should not appear excessively sculpted, as these are associated with a more feminine nose appearance.
These are only general guidelines, and any of these changes, among many other critical details, should be performed with meticulous attention to detail to achieve the most attractive outcome for the individual man’s facial proportions.
All changes to the nose structure made in a male rhinoplasty must create balance with the other facial features, while retaining a masculine look. Taking a man’s individual proportions and facial features into account is critical to achieve a natural and balanced outcome.
Why Have a Rhinoplasty?
Many men are unhappy with their nose appearance. The issues that they want to resolve include:
- Hump on nose bridge
- Hanging nose tip
- Bulbous nose tip
- Uneven or oddly-shaped nose tip
- Broken nose
- Crooked nose
- Overly wide or misshapen nostrils
- Broad bridge
- Narrow bridge
- Pinched tip
- Pointed nose
Why Choose Dr. Siegel for Male Nose Surgery?
When considering facial surgery, choosing the right plastic surgeon could not be more important. While all board-certified facial plastic surgeons have engaged in many years of education, few have achieved double board-certification for facial surgery exclusively. This extensive training, coupled with his artistic eye for balance, make Dr. Siegel a superior choice for rhinoplasty surgery.
When performing a male “nose job,” Dr. Siegel takes the trust his patients place in him very, very seriously. The first step is a private consultation to discuss what you hope to achieve and allow Dr. Siegel to examine your current nose structure, so he can advise you of what corrections should be performed.
What Should I Expect When Having Male Nose Surgery?
Planning surgery requires setting aside time for recovery, generally about one week off work. Prior to your surgery, arrange for a friend or family member to drive you home after surgery, fill all prescriptions, purchase simple-to-prepare meals, and arrange your resting areas, whether bed or recliner, with everything you need at close hand.
You will be under anesthesia and will not suffer pain or discomfort, awakening with your new nose covered by a splint, free to return home to recover. Because no gauze is used to “pack” the inside of the nose after surgery, recovery from a rhinoplasty by Dr. Siegel is a pain-free experience. Most patients report feeling “stuffy” similar to when having a cold, rather than the traditional pain associated with a typical rhinoplasty.
His skilled expertise when approaching this surgery also results in minimal swelling and a speedier recovery. The traditional black and blue eyes is usually not experienced by Dr. Siegel’s patients, In fact most patients will return to work within a week with few visible signs, if any, of surgery.
