What is Male Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty for men is also known as a nose job. During the procedure, the nose is reshaped. Size is scaled to balance other facial features, damaged tissues are repaired, and structural problems are corrected. Men’s larger bone structure and musculature require special plastic surgery skills to ensure a masculine looking result. The bridge should be left a bit wider, and the profile should have sharp edges and a strong, straight line. Most importantly, the nose should look natural and proportional to the rest of the face.
Men often, but not always, get chin implants at the same time as a nose job. Having both procedures ensures that the profile and facial features are symmetrical.
What are the Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty?
Male nose jobs come with aesthetic, functional and emotional benefits. Patients not only look better after the procedure. They feel better too.
- Aesthetic Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty - The majority of men visit Dr. Peters for rhinoplasty because they do not like the way their nose looks. A nose job balances facial features by eliminating a droop, straightening a bump, narrowing a bulbous tip and more.
- Functional Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty - When the cartilage that separates your nostrils moves out of position, a deviated septum can result. During a rhinoplasty, the septum can be moved back into alignment to improve the airflow through your nose. Breathing becomes easier, you will sleep better and frequent sinus infections will be a thing of the past.
- Emotional Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty - Patients who are self-conscious about the size or shape of their nose usually feel better about themselves after the procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate for Male Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can be performed on men or teens with fully developed facial bones. The best candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations.
How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?
Rhinoplasty procedures differ for each patient based on specific needs. During your consultation, Dr. Peters will do an assessment and discuss techniques available to meet your aesthetic goals. Typically, most of the surgery is intranasal so no incisions will be visible. The procedure is relatively short, performed under sedation on an outpatient basis within one or two hours. After the surgery, you may have a splint to help maintain your nose’s shape for a few days. Soft packing may be temporarily used inside the nose as well.
Why Choose Dr. Peters for Male Rhinoplasty?
When selecting a plastic surgeon for your rhinoplasty, you want a doctor who routinely performs the procedure on men. Surgeons who specialize in male rhinoplasty know to keep the tip, nostrils, and bridge properly proportioned to ensure a masculine result. Your nose should look natural and balanced with all of your other facial features. Dr. Peters not only has extensive experience, but he also uses a customized approach to every patient. Dr. Peters’ intuitive sense of proportion allows him to make each patient look his best. Just as important to a successful outcome, Dr. Peters is patient and attentive. He sits and listens to every patient to ensure that expectations are met.
How Much Does Male Rhinoplasty Cost in Orlando?
Since one nose does not fit all, the cost of rhinoplasty will vary based on the type and extent of the procedure. Rhinoplasty may or may not be covered by your insurance. If the procedure is purely cosmetic, it may be considered elective which is not typically covered. Nose jobs performed for health reasons, such as correcting a deviated septum, may be covered. Checking your insurance company’s benefits is always the safest bet. The Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers many options to help make male rhinoplasty more affordable. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, personal checks, and credit cards. Financing is also available via CareCredit®.
