Nose Surgery For Men
A highly popular cosmetic procedure with men, Nose Surgery, commonly known as Rhinoplasty is a procedure which reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing its size, removing a hump, or changing the shape of the top or bridge. It can also be used to correct breathing issues and to help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea.
As a central, prominent feature on the face any deformity in size, shape or position of the nose can have real effects on self-esteem and confidence. Irregularities can be genetic or be the results of an accident or sporting injury.
Rhinoplasty can dramatically improve the look of your nose and the overall symmetry of your face, and also its function. Men who have had this procedure with us report they are more confident in their professional lives and happier to participate in more social activities.
The Rhinoplasty Procedure
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthetic, although it can be performed under heavy or “twilight” sedation which reduces recovery time. Generally the surgeon will work from the inside of the nose; the skin and external area is not touched from the outside which means there are no visible scars. In open Rhinoplasty a tiny scar is made outside. The actual technique used will depend on the type of reshaping to be done, and your surgeon will discuss this with you at your consultation.

What will happen after the Rhinoplasty surgery?
Your surgeon will see you when you have recovered to check that all is well, and you will usually be discharged the same day. You’ll be given medication and post-operative instructions along with appropriate telephone numbers in case you need to contact us at any time. Cold compresses should be applied regularly for the first couple of days to reduce swelling.
You will be fully mobile but may still experience some minor discomfort which you can control with prescribed painkillers. Bruising and swelling around the eyes will diminish and is usually almost gone after two weeks, and, importantly, you will look “normal” to other people. During this time you will also receive a post-operative check with your surgeon.
It’s worth anticipating your own reaction to the first sight of yourself and your new nose. To start with you will look rather strange in the mirror and not quite “you”. Remember that it takes a few days for your mind’s eye to adjust itself to your new appearance and to recognise it as “you”. You should not worry about any minor problems of shape immediately after the operation: it takes around 12 months for your nose to settle and for swelling to subside completely.
Your surgeon will see you again, usually 8-10 weeks after the procedure for a full post-operative consultation.
