Elective rhinoplasty, aka a nose job, is one of the most popular surgical procedures for men, according to a 2016 report from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Finding the ideal surgeon is always important, but it’s especially important for a nose job. “You only want to get one nose job,” Steinbrech says. “Corrective surgery is always harder than doing it right the first time, and the more ‘overdone’ a nose is, the more feminine it starts to look.”Back to top
