Male Rhinoplasty: Nose Reshaping in Harley Street, London
There is a prevailing myth that cosmetic surgeries such as rhinoplasties are only for women or narcissists, but this could not be further from the truth.
FACELIFT SURGERY IN HARLEY STREET
What is Male Rhinoplasty?
Cosmetic procedures for men are rising in popularity and as men become more comfortable, they are also requesting the best male rhinoplasty surgeon, in London, to correct functional issues, such as sports injury related traumas and deviated septums, breathing issues, previous traumas, as well as for purely aesthetic reasons.
In today’s competitive work and social environments, there is an increasing desire to have facial balance and harmony that boosts self-confidence and reflects a strong personality.
What is Different About Male Rhinoplasty?
In considering a male rhinoplasty, Dr De Silva believes it is essential to consider the differences between a male and a female nose.
The typically desired features for a male nose, though each patient will have a different, customised “ideal” nose, are a straighter profile, a stronger, higher bridge, a more sharply defined nasal tip, and stronger, more masculine features, whereas a woman typically benefits from a more delicate, smaller and feminine look. The aesthetic proportions of a male and female nose also differ, especially around the dorsal hump positioning, nasal width, and nasal tip angle.
Dr Julian De Silva has vast experience performing rhinoplasty in London and understands how to combine the characteristics of an attractive nose with the rest of the patient’s features. An attractive nose should flow in harmony with the contours of the face.
For women, a smaller nose, a narrower bridge and an unobtrusive tip angled slightly up are deemed most attractive.
For men, a strong bridge and a slightly broader width and a tip are deemed most attractive. A nose that is more curved or smaller tip can look feminine.
These key features are understood by any plastic surgeon. The best plastic surgeons are the ones who can integrate these ideas and cater them to form the ideal nose for the patient’s face.
Men also request more handsome results to reflect their individual character, and often will want to keep their ethnic shape; the goal of the nose surgery is not for a “cookie-cutter” look, but a subtle enhancement to the facial proportions.
The Key for men is “less is more”, from Dr De Silva’s experience most men do not want a “done” appearance and the results must look natural.

Nose Reshaping Technique And Procedure
Anatomy of the Nose
Though the surgical skills and techniques required for male and female rhinoplasties are similar, they are used to achieve very different results. The differences between male and female facial anatomy must also be considered when crafting the perfect nose for a patient.
The facial bone structure is generally much thicker in men than women, and men have stronger, thicker cartilage and bone as well as much thicker nasal skin. Skin thickness will also change how it drapes over any nasal structure, as well as the overall refinement of the nose, as thicker skin does not allow for the sharp angles and planes that thinner skin can provide.
This will change a good plastic surgeon’s approach to nose surgery for men. Male nose surgery is surgery of finesse and detail, even a 1mm change can be seen. Dr De Silva believes that nose reshaping requires special techniques for improving definition and shape and keeping a natural appearance.
Dr De Silva’s Technique
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures Dr De Silva completes for men on a daily basis. Although in principle the procedure is similar in men and women, there are important differences in the male and female nose that correspond to the underlying facial structure and anatomy. The differences between male and female rhinoplasties can be difficult for an inexperienced surgeon to navigate.
That is why it is crucial to seek out an experienced surgeon for a consultation. During the visit, the surgeon should work with you to help define the goals of your surgery, as well as explain what is or isn’t possible.
Dr De Silva is known for natural-looking results and uses specialized techniques that foster a natural and conservative rejuvenation.

What Type of Anaesthesia is Used?
Sedative anaesthesia, also known as “twilight anaesthesia,” is a combination of local and sedative medications. At the centre, we have developed our own advanced form of twilight anaesthesia, based on practices in the USA.
This specialised sedation uses tiny amounts of four to five sedation medications that cumulatively give a relaxing and safe experience to avoid the risks and side effects of general anaesthesia. A much shorter recovery period than general anaesthesia, with most patients able to leave 30 to 60 minutes following the procedure.
These are the most advanced sedation techniques available, and the optimal option for patients considering a nose job.
