Better communication and clarity are 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 oversculpted. Another key component in any rhinoplasty case is proper skin care, especially during the postoperative period. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:: Therapeutic, V.
