What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty for men is a specialized procedure that successfully balances your aesthetic goals, a masculine appearance, and the proportions of the male face. Male rhinoplasty should be performed by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon with expertise in helping men achieve a more balanced, masculine look.
At Janiga MDs, Dr. Janiga offers several variations on rhinoplasty for men, including standard, tip-only, and rhinoplasty combined with septoplasty.
Traditional rhinoplasties address the different external areas of the nose to bring them into proportion with the rest of the face. A septoplasty is an internal nasal surgery performed to correct a deviated septum, which can make the nose crooked and inhibit your ability to breathe or the sinuses to properly drain. When combined, these two options can correct common septum-related issues while also improving the overall cosmetic appearance of the nose.
Tip-only rhinoplasty is a specialized procedure that refines the tip of your nose, reducing a bulbous tip or giving definition to a poorly defined tip. Because this is one of the most artistic procedures in plastic surgery, experience and an eye for the masculine profile is crucial for achieving optimal results.
Dr. Timothy Janiga performs rhinoplasty for men using general anesthesia in Reno-area outpatient surgery centers. The procedure typically involves an incision both underneath and inside the nose. The underlying cartilage and bone are often reshaped. Sometimes, cartilage grafts are used to improve and refine the appearance of the nasal tip and dorsum. Dr. Janiga will work very closely with you to help you achieve your desired look.
This procedure takes approximately one to three hours with one to two hours of recovery time before leaving the surgery center. Then, you can return home with the help of a trusted friend or family member.
