Male Rhinoplasty


The male nose is the subject of painters, filmmakers, great scupltors and artists of all types throughout the ages because the nose defines the face. If you are a man living in Los Angeles, Pasadena or any of the surrounding California communities and you want to redefine your nose and enhance your appearance, then the right choice for your rhinoplasty is board-certified facial plastic surgeon Michael Schwartz, M.D.

What is Rhinoplasty for Men (Male Rhinoplasty)?

The nose is the most prominent feature of your face. Many men have noses that are either too large or not defined enough. Achieving symmetry and strength in the nose is a great way to enhance one’s face and looks in general. Rhinoplasty, or nose reconstruction surgery, is a surgical procedure through which Dr. Schwartz can correct and artistically reshape your nose. Rhinoplasty with Dr. Schwartz can also be used to correct and repair impaired breathing that is often caused by structural defects inside the nose. Dr. Schwartz has extensive training in Otolaryngology, Facial Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery. There is no surgeon more qualified to address your cosmetic concerns and your functional breathing issues.  Rhinoplasty for men is extremely common, and many men often seek to reshape their nose to correct its size or proportions, to repair tissue damaged by an injury, or to create a natural appearance that is more proportional and harmonious with their eyes, lips and other facial features. Dr. Schwartz strongly believes in pursuing a natural, masculine appearance that is in perfect proportion to your overall facial structure. This requires an expertise that few surgeons attain, combining art and science for flawless results. Many male patients of Dr. Schwartz seek rhinoplasty to attain a somewhat wider and more defined, masculine-looking nose rather than the narrower, more feminine nose typically desired by female patients, which is why choosing the right surgeon with the expertise you really need is extremely important.

What are the Benefits of Male Rhinoplasty ?

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your nose? No man should go through life unhappy with how their nose appears. Dr. Schwartz is a strong patient advocate who believes in helping men achieve a facial appearance that they desire, while still being completely natural and not appearing at all “done”. You can utilize male rhinoplasty surgery to correct issues such as a nose that is off-center, the appearance of a bulbous or droopy tip, a bump or “ski slope” nose, or a nose that is either too broad or too thin, not to mention virtually any other aspect of your nose that makes you unhappy. Rhinoplasty surgery can syncronize the size of your nose to other facial structures, addressing problems such as the width of the nose at the bridge and your sillhoute profile. Rhinoplasty can also be performed to repair damaged tissue caused by a past injury, or clearing up breathing problems caused by such structural challenges as a deviated septum and enlarged turbinates. Although septal repair alone does not alter the look of your nose, many men choose to make further corrections with rhinoplasty as well.

Who is a Good Candidate for Male Rhinoplasty?

Being unhappy with your nose is no way to go through life. Structural issues that impair breathing and aesthetic issues can be jointly addressed, so if you are a man whose goals are realistic and enjoy overall good health, you may very well be an excellent candidate for male rhinoplasty. In the case of teenagers seeking male rhinoplasty, Dr. Schwartz will examine the patient to make sure that your facial bones are fully developed before performing the surgery.

How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?

With Dr. Schwartz, you can count on the skills of a surgeon who understands how to achieve the doable, while always keeping your safety and well-being as his primary focus. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure that requires a different approach for each patient, and Dr. Schwartz will work very closely with you to determine the best approach to address your particular concerns and problem areas, so he can help you get the results you really desire. Rhinoplasty is the most difficult cosmetic procedure and Dr. Schwartz has the ideal combination of training, experience, expertise, and aesthetic sense. Normally performed on an outpatient basis under sedation, the procedure itself typically lasts between one and two hours, and once the procedure is completed, a splint is placed to support the tissues for one week. Dr. Schwartz may also apply soft absorbent packing inside your nose to offer structural support.

How Much Does Male Rhinoplasty Cost in Pasadena, CA?

The cost of a male rhinoplasty surgery varies depending on the scope of work needed. Most insurance carriers do not cover this procedure because it is considered an elective cosmetic surgery, however Dr. Schwartz’s office provides affordable financing through Alphaeon Credit, Prosper® Healthcare Lending and CareCredit® and accepts payments in the form of cash, personal checks and credit cards to keep the procedure accessible for all patients.
