I am male and I had never thought of having a nose job until I saw a picture of myself

Question:

I am male, 56 years old and I had never thought of having a nose job until I saw a picture of myself on my daughter’s Facebook page. My nose looked huge! During my consultation, will you be able to show me what different shaped noses would look like on my face before I have a nose job?

Answer:

In all of our patients who have a consultation regarding Rhinoplasty, we perform computerized imaging. The computerized imaging is software that allows us to alter and change the image which is a wonderful communication tool between the physician and the patient. Using computerized imaging, we are able to demonstrate to the patient what our goal is for surgical outcome and determine if the patient’s expectations are reasonable and realistic. In all patients contemplating Rhinoplasty, our goal is essentially the same, and that is – to leave the patient with a nose that fits their face. This is obviously different with every individual as we have considerations that fit more in male patients vs. female patients. Additionally, there are ethnic considerations as well and it is important to maintain ethnicity as well as a nose that is more appropriate based on the sex and height of the individual. Again, imaging is a wonderful tool to allow us to communicate more effectively with our Rhinoplasty population.
