Rhinoplasty Surgery Can Enhance the Male Nose

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


If you’re like many men, you may be worried that cosmetic surgery will take away from your naturally masculine look. However, cosmetic surgery can actually enhance your features and even make you look more masculine. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi is highly skilled and experienced in the specific techniques needed for male rhinoplasty. In this blog, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions regarding nose surgery for men, including what kinds of improvements can be made and which type of rhinoplasty may be most appropriate for you.

How can rhinoplasty help a man’s appearance?

With rhinoplasty surgery, patients – whether male or female – can get relief from uncomfortable symptoms and also improve their appearance. Some of the concerns that commonly lead men specifically to pursue rhinoplasty surgery include:

  • Bump or hump in nose
  • Crooked nose
  • Deviated septum
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Snoring
  • Nose is too wide or too narrow
  • Bulbous nasal tip
  • Nose looks too feminine
  • Previous trauma/broken nose

Will rhinoplasty make my nose look too feminine?

While rhinoplasty surgery can certainly give women a more delicate, feminine nose shape, that is not the goal for all patients. For men, in particular, the fear of having a nose that appears too feminine can actually deter them from pursuing surgery altogether. Fortunately, rhinoplasty is a customizable surgery that allows patients to achieve the look they desire. For some men, this may mean making changes to the size, shape, or width of the nose while maintaining their natural masculinity and identity.

What type of rhinoplasty is best for men?

There are several types of nose surgeries available today that can be used to make both cosmetic and functional improvements. Based on your particular concerns, goals, and nasal anatomy, Dr. Khorsandi will recommend the type of rhinoplasty that best meets your needs. Common techniques for nose surgery include:

  • Traditional (cosmetic) rhinoplasty
  • Functional rhinoplasty
  • Ethnic rhinoplasty
  • Revision rhinoplasty
  • Septoplasty
  • Turbinectomy

Again, rhinoplasty is fully customizable, and Dr. Khorsandi will tailor each procedure to match the individual patient’s needs and goals. In some cases, rhinoplasty surgery may involve bone or cartilage reduction. For patients specifically hoping for a more masculine look, rhinoplasty surgery may include cartilage grafting and other recontouring techniques.

Is rhinoplasty permanent?

While patients may notice subtle changes to the appearance of their nose over time – primarily due to aging – the results of rhinoplasty surgery should last for many years or even decades. Should a patient experience unwanted changes to the form or function of their noses, perhaps as a result of trauma or postoperative complication, a revision rhinoplasty can often help to restore their original outcome.
