Good Candidates for Male Nose Reshaping Surgery

Ideal candidates for male rhinoplasty are individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose and seek to improve its aesthetic appeal while maintaining masculine facial features. They may have concerns such as a prominent nasal hump, wide or asymmetrical nostrils, a drooping nasal tip, or other nasal irregularities. Candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure, and be non-smokers. Additionally, they should have fully developed facial structures, typically around the age of 18 or older, to ensure stable and long-lasting results. Dr. Kristopher Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery evaluates each patient individually to determine their candidacy for male rhinoplasty and designs a personalized treatment plan to address their specific concerns and goals.

What to Expect During
Male Nose Reshaping Surgery

During a male rhinoplasty, performed by Dr. Kristopher Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery in Bellevue, WA, the individual will first receive anesthesia to ensure continued comfort throughout the procedure. Next, incisions are carefully made either inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or across the columella (open rhinoplasty) to access the underlying nasal structures.


Depending on the patient’s unique needs and goals, various techniques may be employed to reshape the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues. These may include removing excess tissue, refining the nasal tip, straightening a crooked nose, or reducing a nasal hump. Dr. Day will sculpt the nasal framework to achieve the desired shape and contour, paying close attention to maintaining or enhancing nasal function, such as breathing.


Once the desired changes are made, the incisions are meticulously closed, and nasal splints or packing may be placed to support the nose as it heals. The procedure typically takes a few hours to complete, after which the patient is monitored in the recovery area before being discharged to go home the same day.


Recovering From A
Male Nose Reshaping Surgery

After male rhinoplasty, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the nose and eyes, which gradually subsides over the following weeks. Pain medication prescribed by Dr. Kristopher M. Day MD at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery can help manage any discomfort during this time. Nasal congestion and minor bleeding may also occur but usually resolve within a few days.


Patients are typically advised to rest with their head elevated to minimize swelling and avoid strenuous activities for the first few weeks. It is critical to follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Day carefully, which may include wearing a nasal splint or bandages to support the nose as it heals and avoiding activities that could put pressure on the nose.


Most patients can return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks, although strenuous exercise and contact sports should be avoided for a few weeks longer. While significant swelling may take several months to fully resolve, noticeable improvements in nasal appearance and function are typically apparent within the first few weeks post-surgery. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Kristopher M. Day MD are vital to monitor healing progress and address any concerns.
