Benefits of Male Nose Surgery – Nose Reshaping for Men

The popularity of Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, is growing. More and more frequently people are requesting facial surgeries, especially nose surgery for men.  “I have always hated my nose, my profile. It never matched the rest of my face and it gets too much attention,” is a common complaint from men who aren’t fond of their noses.  It’s why a male nose job is one of the more popular cosmetic procedures that men undertake to improve their appearance. The other top male plastic surgery choices seem to be liposuction, tummy tuck/abdominoplasty, and male breast reduction along with facelifts or anti-wrinkle injections.

So, why is having nose surgery so popular? The fact is, our noses are often our MOST recognisable or distinguishable facial feature. Usually second to the eyes and before the smile.  

We are instantly recognisable by our noses because they are centrally located on the face, impacting all surrounding features. Furthermore, they protrude and therefore define our entire side profile along with our brow, chin and jaw.  Our other facial features lie flatter in comparison to the structures of the nose.  

Men that what to improve their appearance often consider getting a nose job. A nose job can affect overall facial appearance, facial symmetry or simply get a straighter, smaller, more balanced or attractive nose. Other times men need to correct nose damage or a deviated septum, sometimes related to; sporting injuries, vehicle mishaps or other traumas to the nose region of their faces.

Noses LEAD the way in defining your overall facial balance and a Nose Job (Rhinoplasty Surgery) can make a difference in your profile and overall facial appearance.

  • Your nose shape and size impact your overall facial balance.
  • Noses either enhance or detract from other features.
  • Noses are often one of the more popular “I would change if I could” facial features.

If you haven’t had nose surgery but your nose isn’t the focus of unwanted attention, it’s usually because your face has good balance. And that includes your nose.

Rhinoplasty is a common surgery, people undergo rhinoplasty to either correct or restore the nose after an accident or injury, or for aesthetic (appearance) reasons.  

Plastic Surgeons can help people restore the nose look they used to have (called a corrective or restoration focused nose shaping surgery) or they can enhance the appearance of the nose (as well as other parts of the face, body or chest area).

Why a Rhinoplasty or Male Nose Surgery is a frequently requested Face Surgery

Noses are usually not a neutral aspect in relation to the appearance of the face – particularly for men. If they aren’t the focus of attention, that usually means your nose is already a good fit for your face.

If you’re constantly receiving unkind comments about any part of your nose; size, shape, hump, bump, crookedness, or if it was broken once or twice then a nose job will potentially help.

Does your Nose Shape or Nose Size Matter in terms of your Facial Appearance?

Yes, it does. Your nose often impacts the perceived level of facial attractiveness or facial symmetry that you have. This is not just to others but also to yourself either in the mirror or when you’re looking at selfies. Furthermore, how you THINK you look often impacts your psyche in some way, as well as your confidence in social situations or under bright lights or in front of camera lenses.

Ask around if you’re not sure, ask at least 10 people you know whether or not they LOVE their noses.  Ask them if they would change their nose if they were able to, by whatever means – surgical or other. There is a liquid nose job that can work for some minor changes.

You might be surprised to hear what people have to say about their nose shape. Even people with noses you think look good and greatly admire!

More than nearly any of our other facial features, the dimensions of our noses – width, length, tip shape and size, nostril dimensions and shape – can determine both our front-facing appearance and side profile.

Unfortunately, first impressions – which are often visual, especially in the digital image sharing age – stick.  Others can make very quick “snap judgments” or assessments about us based purely on our appearances before they even get a chance to know us.

That’s why more men are seeking out plastic surgery these days – just as women have done for a few decades longer.

Why have Male Nose Surgery?

It is the dissatisfaction with nose shape, size or other dimensions (crookedness, bump, hump or other unusual shapes), that renders Rhinoplasty such a top procedure of all men’s plastic or cosmetic/aesthetic surgery procedures. And it’s not just in Australia or other developed countries; men almost all over the globe are requesting nose surgery.

What’s the longest nose ever recorded?   It was by a man living in Turkey, named  Mehmet Ozyurek. His nose was reportedly measured in 2010 as being 8.8 cm long (3.46 inches) from the bridge to the tip.


Nose shapes and Personalities: Do they match?

Innately, we sometimes think they match – and often people make snap judgements about appearance and personality – especially in relation to the nose characteristics

  • Noses shapes range widely.  Some researchers have narrowed down the nose ‘types’ to about 14 but this is fairly rudimentary. However, there are also many sub-types.
  • They can be very straight, crooked with numerous twists or turns, and from narrow to wide in size. Some noses appear sharp or downwards hooking (called the “hawk nose”).
  • Others are very round and fleshy or even bulbous looking.

Several researchers have said we make subconscious assessments about people’s traits based purely on our interpretations of their appearances, and of their noses in particular. When a prospective patient is unhappy enough about the appearance of their nose to investigate plastic or cosmetic nose surgery, it’s rarely a mild form of discontentment that they are expressing. Dissatisfaction with one’s appearance or nose shape can be quite significant in terms of impact on self-confidence levels. Or, more specifically, appearance confidence levels.

That’s partially why Rhinoplasties are some of the most sought after of all Cosmetic or Aesthetic Surgeries. It’s a complex and challenging surgery, and many people aren’t fully prepared for the differences it makes to their ENTIRE face, not just their nose.  But nose reshaping IS certainly capable of providing suitable candidates quite life-changing results, in terms of appearance confidence or self-esteem. Potentially, Rhinoplasty is one of the most powerfully life-changing surgeries of any of the other popular surgery procedures for men.

You might consider Male Nose Surgery as a nose reshaping option to get a nose shape or size that YOU think will look good with the rest of your facial features

Surgery is serious and you want to have realistic expectations. You need to prepare yourself for an extensive surgical procedure and significant downtime. In fact, it may be over a year before all swelling settles and you see the ‘final’ results of your surgery.

Are you patient and do you really want a better nose?  Are you realistic about what it will do for your facial features or appearance confidence? The key to getting a good result is communication and having realistic expectations. Nose surgery won’t suddenly make you as popular as Brad Pitt, Will Smith or George Clooney, for example. But it can make you more satisfied with your overall appearance including your side-view and/or 3/4 view profile.

If you think you are up for taking the journey through a serious surgery to reshape your nose, as many people have ask yourself the following questions;

  • Does the size of your nose make it an overly prominent facial feature?
  • Is your nose a seeming mismatch to your overall face?
  • Do you avoid cameras or profile Instagram photos due to the shape or size of your nose?
  • Has your nose been injured, twisted or broken?
  • Do you miss being able to breathe as easily as before your nose was injured?
  • Have you longed to have your nose “redone” (reshaped) to feel better about your features?
  • Are you embarrassed by the appearance or angle of your nose?

If you wish you could reduce or adjust the; size, length, shape, tip or bend/hook of your nose, then surgery MAY be a good option for you.  

  • Rhinoplasty is a serious surgery that may enhance overall facial harmony by altering the proportions of your nose, nose bridge or nose tip.
  • It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose, such as a deviated septum.
  • If defects are correctable during a Rhinoplasty, you can benefit in health too. Usually, because you’ll get better oxygenation and even better sleep when you breathe more properly or efficiently.

Male Nose Job Recovery and Post-Op support

All surgery has risks and Rhinoplasty is no exception. Ask your Specialist any questions you have. This includes asking about the potential risks of a surgical nose job. Rhinoplasty may have a longer downtime or slower recovery period than some other facial features, so ask about this during your consultation.

You should NOT have surgery if you are a smoker.  If you are thinking of having surgery, seek professional help. You will need to quit well ahead of your surgical procedure.

Your safety, comfort and satisfaction are our priorities. We may offer Healite II and other state-of-the-art healing technologies to help you recover quicker.

Nose Surgery Combinations

You can combine Male Nose Surgery with other facial enhancement procedures like male eyelid surgery, and other surgical or non-surgical procedures, to help you gain a more balanced, youthful and fresher look.

Male Nose Surgery and Chin Augmentation

If your nose seems excessively large or out of proportion to the rest of your face, it might be that your lower face needs surgical enhancement to help correct the feature imbalances. This may mean Chin Augmentation or Chin Implant surgery (or chin filler injections) to correct an out of balance smaller lower jaw or “recessed” chin.

Male Nose Surgery and Eyelid Reduction or Eyelid Lift Blepharoplasty

If your eyes are ageing and you have eyelid ptosis (drooping eyelids), you may want to have an eyelid lift surgery in addition to your nose job (likely sequentially rather than all at once, but ask Mr Maxwell about your options).
