Male Rhinoplasty


Written by Emel Gerdaneri.

Male Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose job, is one of the most common operations worldwide. Male rhinoplasty leads to an advanced facial aesthetics by reshaping the male nose.

In addition, rhinoplasty also allows men to correct structural defects in the nose, including problems with a curvature of the septum or respiratory problems.

With rhinoplasty, the cheek, chin, eye and other facial features of men are harmonized with the nose.

Nose surgery has been shown to help men improve facial symmetry, resize or reshape the nose, minimize the appearance of defects on the bridge of the nose, and eliminate a bulging nose tip.

Rhinoplasty for men is a complex procedure and should be performed by a specialist surgeon. In this way, men can receive comprehensive support throughout their nose surgery and be confident that they can achieve the treatment results they desire.

The Difference Between Male Nose and Male Rhinoplasty

man rhinoplastyThe male nose usually has a prominent, straight bridge and a nasal tip that protrudes at a 90-degree angle between the nose and upper lip.

Comparatively, the female nose usually has a soft bridge and a wide angle with the upper lip.

Also, in many cases, a man's nose has a higher bridge and is wider than a woman's nose. A man's nose usually has a larger tip ridge than a woman's nose.

Male rhinoplasty is customized to a man's facial features. It allows the patient to benefit from an aesthetically pleasing nose that supports a masculine appearance.

Male Rhinoplasty Prices

Processes Before and After Rhinoplasty in Men

rhinoplasty in menAlthough the processes before and after rhinoplasty in men cover similar stages with the opposite sex at many points, some clear lines distinguish between female rhinoplasty and male rhinoplasty.

ENT Specialist Cemil Yurtseven MD answered our questions about male and female rhinoplasty:

“Rhinoplasty is one of the most versatile and sought-after facial plastic surgery procedures that both men and women pay equal attention to.

Of course, rhinoplasty in men is completely different from rhinoplasty in women.

Anatomically, there are numerous nuances that distinguish the two.

Whether reconstructive Whether you are having rhinoplasty, cosmetic rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty, it is important to find a plastic surgeon who will meet this special situation and respond to your needs by considering gender differences from an aesthetic point of view.

The Most Important Difference in Male Rhinoplasty

important difference in male rhinoplastyPeople choose rhinoplasty for a number of reasons, including improving their facial appearance, balancing facial symmetry, or correcting medical problems.

Generally speaking, men tend to have strongly defined straight angled, more prominent nose structures.

Conversely, women favor a slightly upturned nose tip and a small nasal ridge, ie a much thinner and softer appearance.

If we look at the anatomical differences, even the natural design and appearance of male and female noses are completely different.

Most men naturally have a thicker layer of skin on their noses than women, which determines the type of treatments and procedures they will receive.

Males also typically have much longer and more prominent noses than females. In some cases, they may request rhinoplasty to shorten or slightly reshape their noses to make them look a little less conspicuous.

When we look at the statistics and demands, according to the 2019 report of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 25% (52,660) of the total rhinoplasty were male and 75% (161,120) were female. I think we have almost the same data in our country.

I also have one more observation. Older men are increasingly interested in facial aesthetics, especially rhinoplasty, as they want to gain a competitive advantage over their younger counterparts in the workplace.”

Recovery Period Before and After Male Rhinoplasty

recovery periodENT Specialist Cemil Yurtseven MD continued his words as follows: “Before and after rhinoplasty, preparation for surgery and recovery process in men also develop differently than women.

First difference; The suitable candidate age for surgery is 17 for women and 18 for men. The second is the structural differences between men and women.

As I just mentioned, men's skin is thicker and oilier. Because of this feature, the healing process of bruises and edema that may occur after surgery takes longer than women.

Another issue that should be considered during sexual intercourse after rhinoplasty in men is not to get a blow to the nose area.

Extra attention should be paid to this issue in the first 3 months following the surgery. Unlike sexual intercourse after rhinoplasty in men, kissing is also an issue that requires attention.

Since kissing is directly related to the face area, it is an action that is more open to bumps and accidents.

Another and final issue that differs from female rhinoplasty in men is the psychological aspect of the surgery.

It has been noted that they are worried about rhinoplasty by the environment and different interpretations, so in some special cases, men need psychological support.

In men, the procedures performed before and after rhinoplasty, preparation for surgery, and after surgery cover the same processes for both genders.
