Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is a popular choice among men seeking to enhance their facial features and address specific concerns. While there are a number of both cosmetic and medical reasons why men choose to get nose surgery, this article outlines some of the most common concerns for men in particular. 

1. Straighten a Crooked Nose

A crooked nose can result from genetics, injuries or a previous nose surgery and is one of the most common cosmetic reasons that men opt for rhinoplasty. Using customized surgical techniques based on your specific needs, Dr. Ezzat can straighten a crooked nose and improve facial balance and symmetry. For example, if one side of the nose is higher than the other, Dr. Ezzat can adjust the cartilage and bone to create a straighter and more balanced appearance while still maintaining a masculine shape and facial profile.

2. Smooth a Dorsal Hump

For some men, a dorsal hump, also known as a bridge hump, is a cosmetic concern that may cause self-consciousness or low self-esteem. While most dorsal humps are inherited through genetics, they can also form as a result of a traumatic nasal injury. In either case, Dr. Ezzat can address this issue by carefully reshaping and smoothing the nasal bridge, resulting in a more refined and streamlined appearance. 

3. Improve a Bulbous Nose Tip

Thick nasal skin or cartilage at the tip of the nose can create what’s known as a bulbous nose tip, causing the tip of the nose to appear larger than and out of proportion with the rest of the nose. This can be related to a number of factors, including genetics and certain medical conditions including a specific type of severe rosacea

In many cases, rhinoplasty can improve the appearance of a bulbous nose by removing excess cartilage and reshaping existing tissue to create a more structured and proportionate nasal tip. This subtle adjustment can have a significant impact on the overall appearance of the nose.

4. Repair Nose Injuries 

Nose injuries like fractures or deformities from trauma can affect both the appearance and function of the nose. Rhinoplasty can repair and restore the nasal structure, addressing issues such as asymmetry, crookedness or collapse. 

The type of nose surgery and surgical techniques used to repair nasal injuries will depend on the specific injury you’ve sustained, as well as any cosmetic concerns you might have. For example, if a patient has a nasal bridge deformity from a sports injury, Dr. Ezzat can reconstruct the bridge and restore facial symmetry.

5. Correct Breathing Problems

Functional concerns like breathing difficulties due to a deviated septum or nasal obstruction are common reasons for men to consider rhinoplasty. Functional rhinoplasty focuses on improving nasal function while simultaneously enhancing aesthetics if desired. This may involve straightening the septum, reducing nasal blockages and optimizing airflow for better breathing.

If you are considering male rhinoplasty and have questions about the best type of nose surgery for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ezzat to discuss your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
