Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can bring a whole new look to your face and help you look your best. Many men are opting for this cosmetic surgery to help achieve an enhanced appearance and improved balance of facial features.
When to Consider Male Nose Surgery

- If your nose has bumps or depressions on it
- If your nostrils are too large or flare excessively
Male Nose Surgery Consultation
At The Graivier Center, we value our personal relationships with our patients. Each patient is treated as an individual, and as such, is given a personal consultation prior to any treatment. Dr. Graivier and his staff will meet with you to help you make decisions regarding which procedure(s) or treatment(s) will result in achieving your aesthetic goals. The consultation will conclude with a discussion about the desired treatment, your expectations, the benefits and risks associated with the treatment and post-treatment recovery.
Male Nose Surgery Complementary Procedures
It is a common practice for patients undergoing male nose surgery to combine several procedures at once that will offer complementary or enhanced results. At The Graivier Center, we will take the time to walk potential patients through all of the risks and benefits of each surgery, whether you choose a single treatment or multiple treatments.
Patients undergoing male nose surgery can elect to combine the following procedures for enhanced results:
Male Nose Surgery Procedures
There are several types of nose surgery that The Graivier Center offers.
Rhinoplasty reshapes and resizes the nose to achieve an aesthetic goal.
Septoplasty corrects structural abnormalities like a deviated septum or crooked nose.
Nasal fillers are used to add subtle changes and correct asymmetries of the nose.
Male Nose Surgery Recovery
During your surgery, a splint and/or packing will likely be placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages placed on the outside to support and protect the new structures during initial healing.
If nasal packing is necessary, Dr. Graivier uses a small amount of absorbable material, which usually goes away on its own. A nasal drip pad will also be placed and usually needs to be changed several times in the first 36 hours. It is not uncommon to have bruising for the first few days. Most men return to work after seven to 10 days.
While initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, it may take up to a year for your new nasal contour to fully refine. During this time, you may notice gradual changes in the appearance of your nose as it refines to a more permanent outcome.
You will be given specific instructions from The Graivier Center that may include:
- How to care for the surgical site and drains, if applicable
- Medications to apply or take orally to aid in healing and the progression of your recovery
- Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
- Post-op follow-up appointment information
