Golden Ratio: Achieve the Perfect Nose Job for Man

Posted by Dr. Julian De Silva | June 9th, 2022

Perfect Nose Job for Man — male model

An increasing number of men now get nose jobs as cosmetic or revision surgery.

Nose jobs used to be popular among women. All of that is changing now. Men are increasingly getting rhinoplasty surgery with the aim to enhance their nose shape.

One method for determining the ideal nose shape for your face and proportions is to use the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratio, as the name implies, is a mathematical method for facial plastic surgery, including nose reshaping.

But how exactly does the Golden Ratio affect a male nose job? How much does a male nose job usually cost?

In this article, I will talk about male nose job, how the Golden Ratio relates to rhinoplasty, and how much the said cosmetic surgery usually costs. I will also discuss how the procedure usually goes.

Men now get nose jobs for many reasons such as improving their confidence.

Male rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic treatments for men, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. With over 200,000 surgical operations done on males in 2018, rhinoplasty was the most common, accounting for over 52,000 procedures.

Men receive nose jobs for the same reasons that women do, such as:

  • Improved Nose Symmetry
    Men benefit from a natural-looking nose that suits their face. Male rhinoplasty can produce a manly facial appearance.
  • Repair of Nose Structural Problems
    Male nose surgery is frequently performed to repair structural defects in the nose, such as a deviated septum. Nose reshaping surgery can enhance airflow and reduce snoring and difficult breathing habits.
  • Improved Self-Confidence
    Men’s nose jobs can improve the patient’s face look, resulting in improved self-confidence and more favorable social interactions. This surgical procedure can make a significant impact on individuals who are concerned about their personal looks.

A nose job or rhinoplasty procedure changes the form or function of the nose.

Before plastic surgeons perform nose surgery, they usually assess the medical history of the male rhinoplasty patient. They also discuss the patient’s goals during the consultation. In addition, experienced surgeons discuss the differences between the male and female nose.

Once both parties agree to a surgery date, the patient then prepares according to guidelines given by their cosmetic surgeon.

During rhinoplasty procedures, specialist surgeons like me, Dr. Julian De Silva first administer anaesthesia. Then, I make surgical incisions. Most rhinoplasty incisions are done using specific techniques.

After this, I will manipulate what needs to be manipulated. This can include the bone, cartilage, muscles, or all of them.

Lastly, I will close the incision and dress the patient’s nose. By doing this, the patient will have an evenly proportioned nose shape.

In a gist, nose job surgery includes the following:

  • Eliminating a hump on the nose
  • Repairing the bridge
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose
  • Increasing or lowering the nostril size
  • Putting the nose back together after an injury
  • Breathing passageways are opened to treat breathing difficulties
  • Increasing or decreasing the size of the nose

The best nose jobs can be done to improve your appearance or for medical reasons like breathing difficulties and pain relief. Some patients, for example, may require surgery to fix a problem with the cartilage that separates one nostril from the other. Others may just wish to reduce the size or form of their nose to enhance their facial features.

A nose job is often performed as an outpatient operation, which means there is no overnight stay.

Yes, men can get nose jobs.

Yes, males, just like females, can get rhinoplasty.

Male rhinoplasty is quite popular. Due to this, several men got nose jobs. Why do the majority of men do it?

Of course, motivation varies, but certain common elements may be at work:

Breaking the Stereotype

More guys may seek nose reshaping these days since they are no longer constrained by the stereotype that only women, actors, and models have plastic surgery.

Even if the traditional prejudice holds that men don’t care about their appearance, when we’re being honest, we have to recognise that men do care about their appearance.

Enhancing Their Appearance

Because today’s society is more focused on appearances, notably those appealing pictures on social media, more guys step forward to enhance their noses.

What about the ever-increasing emphasis on physical fitness and health? Of course, people eat well and exercise for health, but there’s also an attractiveness factor at work.

Moreover, some males wish to get rid of the “family” nose they received, while others prefer a smaller or more refined version of the nose they acquired.

Increasing Their Confidence

Male rhinoplasty tends to promote confidence or self-esteem. These are frequent beneficial side effects for most guys, even if nose surgery is not their primary objective.

The motive for male rhinoplasty is an intriguing subject to consider, but in the end, each man has his own unique set of motivations and goals for male rhinoplasty.

Are you an ideal candidate for male rhinoplasty?

Are you an ideal candidate for male rhinoplasty?

Those in good health and the right age are ideal candidates for male rhinoplasty.

You are likely an ideal candidate for male rhinoplasty if your goals are reasonable and you are in good health. If you are a teen, your surgeon will need to check you to ensure that your facial bones have stopped developing before performing teenage rhinoplasty.

Male rhinoplasty success is dependent on a few factors. Most significantly, rhinoplasty patients need surgeon expertise, especially if it’s their first time getting primary rhinoplasty.

The Golden Ratio determines how beautiful one’s face is.

People in Ancient Greece were quite knowledgeable about beauty. They devised a formula called the Golden Ratio to determine how near each person’s face was to the ideal one.

I, Dr. Julian De Silva, a celebrity cosmetic surgeon, wanted to use his computerised mapping skills to see if these theories are still relevant today.

The Greeks devised the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi as a mathematical calculation to assess beauty. It is divided into three components.

First, the width and length of the face are measured, and the results are split. The closer the outcome is near 1.6 (number Phi), the better the face.

The dimensions from the hairline on the forehead to the spot between the eyes, the spot between the eyes to the bottom of the nose, and the tip of the nose to the bottom of the chin are also taken into account. A person is considered attractive if all of the numbers are equal.

Lastly, the eye width should be equal to the distance between the eyes and the length of the ear should be equal to the length of the nose.

The cost of a male nose job depends on many factors.

If you hurt your nose and need surgery to restore its form, or if you need a rhinoplasty to breathe correctly, your insurance might cover it. If you only want the procedure for cosmetic reasons, you will have to pay for it.

On average, rhinoplasty cost for males ranges between £5,000 and £10,000. The exact nose job cost depends on where it is performed and the experience of your surgeon. If you do it with more cosmetic procedures such as chin augmentation, cheek implants, blepharoplasty, and facelift surgery, the cost will be higher.

A cosmetic surgery package pricing often includes all costs of your procedure. These include facility charges, surgeon fees, and anaesthesia.

The charges differ from one surgeon to the next and from one facility to the next. After your initial appointment, you should be offered a definite fee and ample time to decide.

High-end nose jobs often cost more than those performed by less experienced surgeons.

In the United Kingdom, nose reshaping costs between £5,000 and £10,000. However, high-end nose jobs may cost more than this. You should also consider the expense of any additional consultations, surgery, or follow-up treatment you may require.

At my Harley Street clinic, the cost of your initial consultation will be deducted from your rhinoplasty fee.

It is difficult to provide a completely accurate estimate of the cost of your operation until we have met and thoroughly analysed your needs and goals. We strive to provide all of our nose job at the most affordable costs while maintaining the greatest standards of quality at all times.

About Rhinoplasty Surgery

About Rhinoplasty Surgery

It is critical to understand what to expect before undergoing nose surgery.

The shape of your nose has a big influence on your overall face look. A nose modification might influence your perceived beauty, physical ties to your ethnic history, and the distinctive features of your face that make you appear like you.

You should also look at nose job transformation images or before and after images of real patients to help you understand what you can expect. I, Dr. Julian De Silva use computerised imagery to anticipate how surgery could change your nose and facial look.

Before Rhinoplasty

To avoid delays, you must come on time for your nose surgery. If you’re unfamiliar with the location, allow additional time to find parking and check in. When it’s time for surgery, you’ll be led into an exam room to have your vitals checked and any last-minute questions answered.

You will be given a hospital gown to wear while you wait. The anaesthesiologist will administer the sedation anaesthesia first. Then, I will enter the operating room to perform the procedure.

During Rhinoplasty

Once you’re sedated, I will make an incision to raise the skin and expose your nasal bones and cartilage. The procedure may involve shaving down bone and cartilage, repositioning tissues, or adding a cartilage graft.

Before the skin is redraped and sutured together, a deviated septum can be corrected for improved breathing. I may also make more incisions to modify your nostrils.

After Rhinoplasty

You’ll most likely be sent home the same day as your nose surgery. You will likely go home with gauze. Internal splints are an option. Casts are rarely used. However, a nasal splint placed over the nose is rather frequent. These are precut from a rigid substance. For about a minute, the splint is immersed in hot water. Tape is wrapped around the nose, and the splint is shaped to fit. As it cools, it hardens.

Pain medication can cause nausea. Due to this, several patients prefer to have clear liquids until their stomach becomes ready for normal food again. For the first few days after surgery, it’s best to eat soft, bland foods.

Great choices include yogurts, soft cooked vegetables, soup, soft fruits, or oatmeal. You won’t be able to chew easily, so crunchy or chewy foods should be avoided.

Avoid alcohol and caffeine until you’ve had time to recuperate. When healing from a nose job or nose surgery, foods that are extremely hot or cold might cause discomfort. Constipation can be alleviated by including adequate fiber and liquids in your diet.


Whether it’s for medical reasons, aesthetics, or a combination of the two, nose surgery may drastically enhance your self-image and quality of life. Take the time to look for a surgeon who is familiar with the surgery and will listen to your desires.

Finding the proper expert to help you through the rhinoplasty procedure or nose surgery is critical since your nose may have a big influence on how you view yourself.
