Male Rhinoplasty NYC
While we typically don’t associate men with plastic surgery, males are among the fastest growing group to seek out image improvement. Over one million men underwent cosmetic procedures as of five years ago, a large number of these were male rhinoplasty. Aging, competition in the workplace and the desire to attract a partner may all play a role in their decision, but the bottom line is that plastic surgery is for all people, regardless of gender or background.
Male rhinoplasty NYC is performed for those unhappy with the shape, size or general appearance of their nose. It is also performed to fix structural issues that may interfere with proper breathing. While women often seek to minimize the nose, many men desire a stronger, more masculine profile and may opt for augmentation techniques. Dr. Westreich is well-versed in both nasal reduction and nasal enhancement, and can provide you with exquisitely natural, nuanced results.

Why select Dr. Westreich for male rhinoplasty in New York?
For Dr. Westreich, a successful procedure is not about creating a generic nose, or even a generically masculine nose. It is about achieving balance and harmony in the features, and arriving at an aesthetically pleasing profile that expresses the individuality of the client. To this end, Dr. Westreich may suggest a chin implant or another additional procedure that may help to obtain more comprehensive results. Additionally, Dr. Westreich is an expert at ethnic rhinoplasty, and will never seek to Westernize your nose job, unless that is specifically what you ask for.
Dr. Westreich’s practice thrives on openness, honesty and transparency. He favors an environment where extensive questioning and answers can occur, and he is an advocate for patient education. The doctor is frequently called upon to educate the public and other doctors as well through the channels of peer-reviewed journals, television, radio and the lecture circuit. He is devoted to sharing his knowledge and experience with the medical community and with his patients, so that they might make the most informed decisions moving forward. Dr. Westreich is lauded as producing some of the best male rhinoplasty New York City has to offer.
How do I get started with male rhinoplasty?
Your first step is to schedule a discreet consultation with Dr. Westreich in the privacy and comfort of his NYC office. There he will examine your nose, record your medical history and prior surgeries, if any, go over any health concerns, and begin to formulate a road map for achieving your aesthetic goals. Before and after photographs of previous clients can help you to visualize the possibilities available to you. In addition, advanced 3D model creation can assist in giving you a more concrete idea of what to expect from your surgery. Most clients find that after the consultation process they are fully prepared to move forward, having all their questions regarding the procedure, recovery and financing answered in depth.
Dr. Westreich is known for a sophisticated closed procedure which minimizes post-operative pain, and hides scarring within the nose itself. While this is not possible with strictly every case, the majority of clients will find that a closed technique will meet their needs, no matter how complex. It’s also important to note that Dr. Westreich will never over-operate or aggressively reduce nasal cartilage or bone, which may lead to the need for revision rhinoplasty in the future. On the contrary, the doctor is painstakingly conservative in his approach so as to deliver long-lasting results to his happy clients.

Male Rhinoplasty FAQs
At New Face NY, we have discovered that our male patients come to us with several common questions. Read the answers to some of these questions, but feel free to meet with us about your individual questions and concerns.
How long is the recovery time from a male rhinoplasty?
While every human body is unique and healing times vary based upon age, ethnicity, and how well and quickly you heal, you will need some patience after the procedure. Most patients take two weeks off work. Each procedure performed is different, and if the nose reshaping required more surgical repair, it may require longer. The nose may be swollen for about three weeks, and you may have under-eye bruising after the procedure. We work closely with our patients throughout the healing process and can help you minimize healing time through following strict aftercare instructions.
How do you choose the right nose shape for a male rhinoplasty?
Every person has a unique facial structure, and to enhance your other features requires a careful evaluation to determine the shape that will create the most positive improvement. Your male rhinoplasty procedure is a customized surgery, planned strictly for you. We offer our patients the ability to “try on” various nose changes to get an idea of what they will look like with our digital system. Even very small changes can make a remarkable difference in facial appearance, which is why we plan these surgeries with such care and attention to detail.
What will I need to do to prepare for surgery?
Every patient, male or female, has certain responsibilities in preparing for surgery. These include discontinuing various medications or supplements that thin the blood. If you smoke, you need to quit for several weeks prior to surgery. You will need to get the area in which you will spend your time recovering ready by preparing all you need (books, remote controls, water, lip balm, blankets, pillows or wedge to keep head elevated, ice packs, easy-to-consume foods, and other items) to be at close hand. You will need to arrange a friend or family member to drive you home, and to stay with you the first night.
How long will a male rhinoplasty take to complete?
The surgery itself can vary in how long it requires, but typically it will take between one to two hours. After the surgery, you will spend a little time recovering prior to being able to return home. You can expect to set aside an entire day for the procedure by the time all is said and done.
What are the benefits of a nose job for a man’s face?
The benefits of a professionally-performed rhinoplasty go beyond improving your appearance. While this is the most important issue and why you chose to undergo the procedure, you may not realize that you will experience a remarkable increase in self-confidence in your image, which impacts every area of life, from business to social interactions. Our patients report that they are exceptionally happy with how they appear, and that they are feeling an unexpected increase in confidence in body image. Your face will appear more attractive, appealing, and balanced, and draw a more positive response from others.
