Rhinoplasty for Men in Washington, D.C.
As the central feature of the face, your nose is often the focal point. If you are concerned that your nose is not straight, lacks a strong or masculine profile, or disrupts balance with your other facial features, our Washington, DC board certified plastic surgeons can help. Rhinoplasty, also known as nose reshaping or a “nose job,” can change or improve the shape of your nose. Additionally, rhinoplasty may be used in conjunction with a septoplasty or turbinate reduction procedure to address nasal breathing issues—in this case, your insurance may cover some of the costs.
How Rhinoplasty Can Help
Your nose surgery will be fully customized to your unique needs and anatomy. With rhinoplasty, our surgeons can:
- Adjust the size of your nose
- Alter the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose
- Reduce or narrow the span of your nostrils
- Address an injury or birth defect
- Relieve issues with breathing or function
What to Expect from your Male Rhinoplasty Procedure
Your surgeon will begin by making incisions inside of the nose. The final look you want to achieve will determine the technique used during your procedure. For example, if you want your nostrils narrowed, additional incisions at the nostril rim may be required. During your consultation, our surgeons will help you determine the best surgical plan to achieve your desired results and will explain the specifics of what to expect from your individual procedure.
After your procedure, your nose will be in a splint for about one week. You may experience bruising and swelling on and around the nose, but this should dissipate within 10 to 14 days after surgery. Normal activity can typically be resumed two weeks after surgery, but contact athletics should be avoided for at least six weeks to avoid disrupting your results or causing injury.
