Whilst a general nose surgery is called Rhinoplasty, nasal surgeries can be divided into two groups: functional rhinoplasty (correcting breathing problems), and cosmetic rhinoplasty (correcting aesthetic problems).
The nose job has been available for decades. But for people of color in the U.S., getting a satisfying outcome often proves challenging because best practices among plastic surgeons were developed around the general facial shapes and aesthetic standards of Caucasians, who make up the largest patient demographic. However, a narrow, one-size-fits-all focus on the “American nose” fails to preserve patients’ ethnic identity, and it doesn’t take into account the rich diversity of facial shapes and characteristics in today’s society.
Applying Caucasian rhinoplasty techniques and guidelines to the face of an African-American, Asian, Native American, or Middle Eastern patient may result in dissatisfaction.

Rhinoplasty For Men
Dr. Paul will use a special approach for his male patient. Many men wish for a smaller nose, a reduced nasal hump and a less droopy tip. Patients are deeply concerned with being over-done or scooped. Rhinoplasty for Men is geared towards keeping a powerful, prominent nose with a supported nasal tip that is not over-rotated – but one that fits a masculine face. When speaking with Dr. Paul, you will discuss your nuanced goals and craft an individualized surgical plan.
Dr. Paul takes everything about what makes a male nose unique into consideration when performing this procedure. These characteristics are usually your nose width, the angle of the nasal tip, your facial shape and structure, and finally, the angle of your nasal bridge. As a highly trained rhinoplasty surgeon in the Big Apple, you can rest assured that no matter what your genetic makeup is, you are in qualified hands with Dr. Ben Paul.
