Types of Male Rhinoplasty
Depending on your cosmetic goals, you can choose between various types of male rhinoplasty procedures. Below are the most common male rhinoplasty procedures we offer.
Wide Nose Rhinoplasty
A wide nose rhinoplasty can resolve issues with your nose, like its angle, size, and shape. Wide noses can happen due to bone and cartilage under the skin, making an unbalanced appearance.
Sometimes during a wide nose rhinoplasty, Dr. Dominic may need to break your nose. This technique is known as a nasal osteotomy and is common among male rhinoplasty procedures to achieve desired results by moving bone and cartilage pieces. He may also need to remove tissue to adjust the size of your nose.
Dorsal Hump Reduction
Dorsal hump reductions are one of the most common types of male rhinoplasty. Dorsal humps disrupt the straight slope of the nose with a noticeable “hump.” This results from bone irregularities or excess cartilage.
Dorsal hump reductions are also open rhinoplasty procedures, meaning there is a third incision outside of the nose on the columella, which is the bridge of skin between the nostrils. This gives Dr. Dominic more visibility to sand down the cartilage or bone that’s causing the bump, in addition to potentially breaking your nose.
Bulbous Tip Rhinoplasty
A bulbous tip results from misshapen or excess cartilage in the tip of your nose which Dr. Dominic can correct with male rhinoplasty. Bulbous tip rhinoplasties require an open procedure due to the visibility Dr. Dominic needs to remove and reshape the cartilage.
Septoplasties are a type of male rhinoplasty that correct deviated septums. Deviated septums result when the bone or cartilage that divides the nostrils is crooked or off-center. This nasal issue can cause breathing problems, headaches, congestion, snoring, or may make your nose look crooked.
During a septoplasty procedure, Dr. Dominic will remove the mucosa lining, then reshape the bone and cartilage between your nostrils to correct the issue. In most cases, this male rhinoplasty procedure is covered by insurance since it’s considered a medical procedure.
Open vs. Closed Rhinoplasty
Male rhinoplasties are either open or closed procedures. This refers to how invasive your procedure needs to be in order to achieve your desired results. If you want more extensive work done to your nose, then the visibility that comes with an open rhinoplasty will be necessary.
Open rhinoplasty procedures include a third incision outside of the nose, on the columella. This third incision is necessary to get extra visibility inside the nose so Dr. Dominic can access the underlying bone and cartilage.
Closed rhinoplasty procedures have just two incisions, both inside the nostrils, which makes it less invasive than open rhinoplasty. This type of male rhinoplasty is better for procedures where you need fewer revisions. In addition, the recovery time is also much faster.
Male Rhinoplasty Recovery
The recovery time for your male rhinoplasty depends on your specific procedure and how well you follow Dr. Dominic’s post-op aftercare routine and instructions.
Right after your procedure, you will be sore, swollen, and bruised. During this time, it’s essential to rest and not do any strenuous activities, work, or exercise. You will have a bandage and splint supporting your nose for this first week, but you should still be cautious. Any bumps or pressure can alter your rhinoplasty results.
In the second week, you should begin to heal significantly, and Dr. Dominic will remove your bandages. After you remove your splint and bandages, you may return to work and a normal routine as long as there are no strenuous activities involved.
Recovery for your male rhinoplasty can take up to a year to fully heal. Your swelling will subside in the months following your procedure, but you may have residual swelling on the tip of your nose for up to a year. After three months, your face will be fully healed, but the results of your rhinoplasty are permanent after 12 months.
You can combine male rhinoplasties with other cosmetic procedures, like facelifts and chin implants. Dr. Dominic can perform these procedures simultaneously, so there’s no need to worry about scheduling multiple procedures.
Male Rhinoplasty and Facelift
Facelifts are commonly paired with rhinoplasties since the combined procedures can provide a more unified and balanced face. Facelifts tighten and lift the face to reduce the signs of aging like wrinkles, sagging skin, folds on the jawline, and more.
When Dr. Dominic combines these two procedures, you can expect a unified aesthetic beauty and a great facial balance. During a consultation, Dr. Dominic can walk you through how this combined procedure can benefit you.
Male Rhinoplasty and Chin Implants
A chin augmentation can create a more youthful look and correct deformities with your chin. The reason for combining these two procedures is to ensure that the chin doesn’t disrupt your facial balance after augmenting the look of your nose.
The chin and nose are two of the most visible aspects of your face. Dr. Dominic can help you create a more youthful and balanced appearance with these combined procedures.
Will my rhinoplasty results look natural?
Yes, your male rhinoplasty results will look natural if an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon performs the procedure. Dr. Dominic is a double-board certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing male rhinoplasties.
Does a nose job change your smile?
No, a male nose job will not change your smile. Swelling from the procedure may make your smile look different for a time, but as the swelling decreases, your smile should return to normal.
Can rhinoplasty improve the function of my nose?
Yes, a male rhinoplasty can improve the function of your nose. A septoplasty can fix issues with your nose like a deviated septum. In addition, rhinoplasties can help with headaches, congestion, and snoring.
Can you mess up your rhinoplasty?
Yes, it is very easy to mess up your rhinoplasty if you do not follow Dr. Dominic’s post-op instructions. Good tips to ensure you don’t mess up your rhinoplasty are:
- Don’t blow your nose
- Sleep on your back, with your head propped up
- Do not bump or apply pressure to your nose
- Avoid strenuous activities
