Abstract

Male rhinoplasty is unique in that it requires precise pre-operative planning to achieve a successful result. Better communication and clarity is paramount with male rhinoplasty patients because the patients may be less attentive. It is important for the surgeon to screen the patients for any psychosocial disorders. Through a series of cases, male rhinoplasty techniques are highlighted. Masculine features should be preserved and the nose should not be feminized or over-sculpted. Another key component in any rhinoplasty case is proper skin care especially during the post-operative period.
