If the nose is out of proportion, has a hump, drooping tip, bulbous tip, or is crooked, it throws off the look of the entire face.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose. Often referred to as a “nose job,” a rhinoplasty can create a more attractive nose shape, size, and projection, and improve breathing function.
Austin plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Whitfield is a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience in cosmetic surgery of the face. He has an intimate understanding of male anatomy and an eye for proportion in reshaping the nose structure in men. This, combined with a keen artistic eye, allows him to deliver natural looking, attractive, and balanced rhinoplasty results for his male patients. He offers male patients more:
A nose can be too large for the rest of your face, but it can also be too small. The key to excellent results in a male rhinoplasty is creating the right nose for your individual facial features.

It is very important to take it easy and protect your nose as you recover from male rhinoplasty surgery. You want to avoid any kind of trauma to the nose, as even forceful blowing of the nose can cause the splints to move. Be very careful with the new nose structure until the area has sufficiently healed. The swelling can take anywhere from two to six weeks to resolve. Swelling at the tip of the nose may take up to a year to finally disappear, although the residual swelling will visible mostly only to you – not others. Most people can return to daily activities within a week and can go back to more vigorous exercise or other activities within four to six weeks. Final results are achieved in about nine to twelve months, when tip swelling to complete resolves.
Male rhinoplasty will be performed under general anesthesia in the safety of an accredited surgery center or hospital. After your procedure, your nose will be protected with airway splints as well as a plaster splint that plastic surgeon, Dr. Whitfield will creates after your nose reshaping is complete. You can expect to be bruised, possibly as far up as the eyes, and swollen for at least two weeks. The stitches will be removed in about seven to ten days.
The first step on your journey to a new nose is a private consultation with Dr. Whitfield. The meeting will include discussions with you about what you dislike about your nose, a physical exam, an assessment of your skin quality, and precise measurements taken of your nose. Together, you will come up with the treatment plan to best achieve your desired outcome.
