Rhinoplasty is performed to help balance the features and create a nose that suits the patient’s face. In the case of male rhinoplasty, the nose should be sufficiently strong but should also be harmonized with the chin and the forehead for an attractive profile. Dr. Fechner, an experienced, precision-minded double board-certified plastic surgeon, will strategically alter the nasal bridge, tip, and nostrils to achieve your unique goals for improvement while simultaneously optimizing your breathing.

What Are The Benefits?

Rhinoplasty can adjust the bone, cartilage, soft tissue, and skin to create a nose that feels ideal for each patient, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem. While many aspects of nose surgery remain the same for all genders, male rhinoplasty takes into consideration the unique attributes that contribute to a handsome, masculine-looking appearance. Both cosmetic and functional concerns can be addressed by Dr. Fechner with outstanding, natural-looking outcomes.

Male rhinoplasty can help correct:

  • A prominent dorsal hump
  • A bulbous, hooked, or drooping tip
  • Asymmetry or crookedness
  • Enlarged or flaring nostrils
  • An overly projected nose
  • A flat or overly wide bridge
  • A broken nose

How Is Male Rhinoplasty Performed?

Dr. Fechner draws upon his extensive expertise to deliver nose surgery results that are perfectly tailored to your unique wishes and anatomy. He will choose from open or closed rhinoplasty. The open technique involves a small incision crossing the base of the nose (the columella). This approach is used when complex changes are needed to multiple areas of the nose. It affords the surgeon the most amount of flexibility and precision.

The closed approach, on the other hand, involves incisions placed within the nostrils. The benefit is that this procedure is considered “scarless”; however, surgeons are more limited in the alterations they can make. Dr. Fechner will discuss your options with you in depth during your private consultation.

What Is Functional Rhinoplasty?

In addition to cosmetic concerns, many men struggle with their breathing. Functional rhinoplasty can address issues such as a deviated septum, turbinate hypertrophy, and middle-vault collapse. Insurance companies will generally cover these types of procedures, as they may be medically necessary. Dr. Fechner can combine your cosmetic rhinoplasty with functional rhinoplasty to enhance both form and function.

What Is Ethnic Rhinoplasty?

In the past, doctors used a Westernized approach on every patient, regardless of their unique ethnicity or heritage. Today, plastic surgeons grasp the nuance and subtlety required to produce a nose that is personalized to the patient. Dr. Fechner understands the idiosyncrasies inherent in African-American, Middle Eastern, Asian, and Hispanic noses and is able to choose the ideal techniques to produce balanced, elegant outcomes.

What Are The Benefits Of Male Rhinoplasty?

  • A balanced profile
  • A more proportionate, attractive nose
  • Correction of imperfections in the tip, nostrils, or bridge
  • Enhanced breathing
  • A more positive self-image
  • Natural-looking outcome
  • Long-lasting results

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Male Rhinoplasty?

In order to undergo surgery, the nose must be fully developed. Boys should typically be about 17 years old before undergoing rhinoplasty, although Dr. Fechner will determine candidacy on a case-by-case basis. Nose surgery should always be performed to please yourself and not others. Ideal candidates are non-smokers of sound mind and body who have realistic expectations for their results based on a private consultation with Dr. Fechner.

What Is The Consultation Process Like?

If you are unhappy with the size, shape, projection, or function of your nose, schedule a private consultation today with Dr. Fechner, a double board-certified rhinoplasty authority. He will conduct a detailed physical examination and review of your medical history in order to create a customized treatment plan that reflects your aesthetic sensibilities. Dr. Fechner will listen carefully to your goals and answer any questions you may have, going over such topics as the risks and benefits of rhinoplasty, what to expect before, during, and after your surgery, and what kind of results you can expect. Lastly, he will provide you with a quote for services.

What Can I Expect After My Surgery?

After surgery, you may experience swelling, bruising, and tenderness. Dr. Fechner will provide prescription pain medications to help ease any discomfort, along with a full aftercare plan. Instructions will be given for bathing, wound care, sleeping, resuming exercise, and returning to work. A splint applied to the nose to help hold its new shape will be removed after 7 days.

Most patients can return to work within around 2 weeks, provided their jobs are sedentary. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be postponed until around 6 weeks post-op. Dr. Fechner will advise on the specifics of your recovery timeline and will follow up with you regularly to ensure you are healing well.

Why choose Dr. Fechner?

Dr. Fechner is a double board-certified veteran of innovative and advanced surgical techniques, making him among the most sought-after rhinoplasty authorities in the Boston area and beyond. His elite training, consummate artistry, and genuine compassion combine to offer patients a superior experience from start to finish.

After studying at the University of Freiburg Medical School, Dr. Fechner was chosen for an elite one-year scholarship at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester. He then pursued a demanding surgical internship at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston and a four-year Harvard residency training program at the world-renowned Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, Fechner MD Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa has taken extreme precautionary measures, in addition to following the most up to date CDC recommendations and state guidelines to maximize the health and safety of our patients, staff and facility.

WHEN WILL FECHNER MD PLASTIC SURGERY & MEDICAL SPA OPEN?

Fechner MD will adhere to all local, state, and government mandates. We expect to cautiously resume medical spa and injectable treatments during Phase 2 of the Massachusetts phased reopening. We are awaiting a definitive date from Governor Baker. Cosmetic surgery is expected to resume during Phase 3 of Governor Baker’s plan. We ask for your patience and understanding as our staff is working diligently to reschedule all surgeries and procedures affected by our closure. Please understand that in order to open and adhere to Massachusetts guidelines, we will need to limit the number of staff and patients we have in our building and extend the time between patient appointments in order to sanitize rooms. This means we will have fewer available openings for procedures. In order to maximize our provider appointments, we will continue to hold consultations virtually rather than in person, with a few exceptions (body contouring, Instalift, vein treatments).
