Rhinoplasty for Men

Rhinoplasty can help create facial harmony by reshaping the proportions of the nose. This procedure can also improve impaired breathing caused by a deviated septum or other structural issues in the nose. Also called nose reshaping or a nose job, rhinoplasty is the choice of many men from Ann Arbor, Canton, and Plymouth who want to improve the appearance of their nose for a more masculine and attractive look.

Who Is a Rhinoplasty Candidate?

Men who are unhappy with their nose or feel that it is not in proportion with their other facial features can often benefit from a rhinoplasty.

Common concerns for men include:

  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Nostrils that are too large
  • A large, drooping, or hooked nasal tip
  • Humps and depressions on the bridge of the nose

Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smokers with realistic expectations for the outcome of their procedure. At Center for Plastic Surgery Ann Arbor, one of our two board-certified surgeons* (Dr. Daniel Sherick or Dr. Richard Beil) or our dual MD-PhD doctorate surgeon (Dr. Amy Strong), will sit down with you during your consultation to produce an individualized treatment plan.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed?

The rhinoplasty procedure is an outpatient surgery done under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.

When it comes to rhinoplasty, there are two methods that can be used:

  • Open rhinoplasty: Performed through an incision across the tissue located in between the nostrils called the columella.
  • Closed rhinoplasty: All incisions are made inside of the nose.

Regardless of where the incisions are placed, tissues and cartilage are reshaped. In the case of a deviated septum, the septum will be straightened and any nasal obstructions that have caused breathing problems will be removed.

What Is Recovery Like After Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty patients will return home after surgery with an external cast or splint in place to help ensure proper healing. The cast or splint can be removed 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. Any sutures will be removed after 4 to 7 days. Swelling and discomfort may occur, which can be controlled with oral medication. Swelling and bruising will subside over the next 2 to 4 weeks.

When Will I See My Final Rhinoplasty Results?

Most patients will notice an improvement in their nasal appearance after 3 months as swelling fades, with final results becoming apparent after 12 to 14 months.

Insurance Information

Nose reshaping is not covered by insurance if being done for cosmetic reasons. The patient is responsible for payment. If the nasal deformity is due to a recent injury, insurance coverage may be available.

While we no longer participate with insurance, we do offer a self-pay option to give patients the opportunity to receive insurance benefits for medically necessary procedures. With the self-pay option, patients have their procedure performed in the hospital by our physicians. Patients pay upfront for physician fees and are responsible for initiating the reimbursement request with their insurance company. If you have questions or would like to explore this option, please call us at (734) 712-2323.
