Male Rhinoplasty In-depth

Male noses tend to have thicker skin and heavier skeletal features than female noses, indicating masculinity. The feature that best defines a handsome nose is a solid and straight nasal dorsum well-proportioned to the rest of the face.

Dr. Monica Tadros specializes in male rhinoplasty (nose job) as a customized procedure and treatment of form and function for her patients in NYC & NJ, specifically the Bergen County and Englewood office locations.

Male patients seek rhinoplasty nose surgery in NJ to straighten the nose, refine the tip, achieve facial balance, and improve breathing. The degree of aesthetic change is rarely drastic.

What Is Male Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty (nose job) shapes and reconstructs the nose to restore balance and symmetry upon the overall facial structure. First, incisions are made, and the skin of the nose is lifted off of the underlying bone and cartilage framework.

The majority of incisions are made inside the nose and thus are invisible. Next to precise amounts of underlying bone and cartilage are removed or rearranged to provide a newly shaped structure.

For example, when there is a large hump on the nose in profile, the excess bone and cartilage are removed, resulting in a straighter and flatter appearance. The skin is then re-draped over the new framework, and the incisions are closed.


How Common Is Male Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Men are getting nose jobs more often than you may think. In 2017, a total of 52,393 males underwent a male nose job. This accounted for 24% of total nose surgeries.

Leading nose job expert and board-certified surgeon Dr. Monica Tadros favors creating a more natural-looking rhinoplasty result -one that is appealingly well-adjusted to the face.  

In male nose job surgery, successful outcomes require an experienced surgeon comfortable with the male aesthetic and nasal restoration. Many optical illusions can be addressed to improve both form and function in the male nose.

For example, a large hump and over-projected (prominent) tip may be an optical illusion caused by a low radix (the area where the nose meets the forehead), especially in male rhinoplasty. Reducing the hump in this situation will feminize the nose and should not be aggressively performed in male patients.

In Bergen County, NJ, many male procedures call for augmentation of the radix or hump removal, sculpting, and re-implantation to naturally correct the crooked nose.

The best plastic surgeon Dr. Tadros also performs a cartilage-sparing repositioning technique that she pioneered to best correct the droopy tip in men and improve nasal breathing. Whatever your needs, Dr. Tadros specializes in the form and function of the male aesthetics of the nose with her nose job procedures for men.


Are You a Candidate for Male Rhinoplasty?

When you visit Dr. Monica Tadros’s office, she conducts a rhinoplasty consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for nose surgery. You are most likely a candidate for a male nose job if:

  • You are physically healthy;
  • You don’t smoke (or can stop smoking for two weeks before your cosmetic surgery);
  • Your nose is too big or wide;
  • You have a bump on the bridge of your nose;
  • You have a crooked or droopy nose;
  • You have a broken nose or deviated septum.

Usually, you are a good candidate for male rhinoplasty if you are in generally good health and have realistic expectations from your nose job. At your initial rhinoplasty consultation, your surgeon will go over with you your goals and expectations from your cosmetic surgery.

You need to understand the procedure, risks, recovery time and ask any questions about the outcome of your nose surgery.


Why Is Form & Function Important in Male Rhinoplasty?

Any rhinoplasty performed that makes the nose smaller can quickly unmask underlying nasal problems. Male patients in NYC & NJ tend to have undiagnosed nasal fractures more commonly.

Any time the nose bleeds immediately after direct trauma, then some portion of the nose is broken. Such a break may not have any external signs and involve only the deep internal nasal structures or only the cartilage portion of the nose.

Such breaks may remain asymptomatic initially but lead to a deviated nasal septum, nasal valve collapse, and delayed sinusitis over several years. In most cases, the direct connection to the old nasal trauma is not made because of the time-lapse between injury and slow symptom progression.

NJ patients are often mistakenly treated years later with medications for nasal allergies with little or no improvement in symptoms. A proper evaluation, including maxillofacial or sinus CT scan analysis with specialist interpretation, should be used to evaluate this condition.

Successful outcomes of the procedure rely on the surgeon’s aesthetic talent and guidance. The nose, however large or small, must interplay with the remaining facial attributes.

A flat cheek or a recessive chin may make the nose appear more prominent. Most commonly, individuals may consider chin augmentation to optimize male aesthetics and facial balance.
