Surgically shape and balance the nose for a superior performance and form with Dr. Kevin Sadati.
A well-sculpted and straight nose can be an iconic and integral part of the masculine profile. However, because of genetics or injury, some individuals left with undesired noses. A surgical rhinoplasty procedure can be an effective way to augment, reduce, or restructure the nose so that it complements your facial balance and provides an effective channel for breathing.
Dr. Sadati has extensive experience in facial and reconstructive surgery, with a specialization in his signature Septorhinoplasty, which places as much importance on the nose’s functionality and internal structure as its cosmetic appearance and balance. Dr. Sadati produces his well-known results with a gentle hand and prefers subtle changes that leave you looking like the best version of yourself.

Men have become one of the fastest-growing demographics in plastic surgery over the past few years, but it can still be a challenge for men to find a plastic surgeon that can meet their consulting and aesthetic needs. Dr. Sadati keeps in mind that men can require different techniques and preferences when it comes to plastic surgery, and can discuss at length what this looks like for you during your consultation.
A male rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish both cosmetic and functional goals, and men who benefit most from this technique usually experience the following:
- An over- or under-projecting tip or bridge
- Difficulty breathing due to anatomy or past injury
- Wide nostrils, or droopy tip
- A crooked nose or large size that affects the overall balance and harmony of the face
During your unique, private consultation with Dr. Sadati, he will examine the skin, cartilage, bone, and internal structure of your nose to best determine a surgical plan. He will also listen carefully to your goals for your procedure and how you envision your nose will look afterward. He can also professionally recommend any other procedures that might benefit you that can be performed at the same time, such as a chin augmentation.
After your consultation, our professional patient coordinators can assist you with booking your further appointments and ensure you have any care steps or materials you need to prepare for your procedure. We invite you to enjoy our luxurious Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery & Aesthetic Lounge facilities, which are available for your enjoyment and appreciation during your plastic surgery journey.
Immediately after surgery, you will need to wear an external nasal splint for up to six days. This is important because it offers extra support for the internal structures which may be altered during the procedure. We invite you to stay at one of our luxurious guest suites for the length of your initial recovery, during which our expert nurses can monitor you. You will be required to be taken home by a close friend or relative after your procedure, and it’s preferable for them to watch over you for your first few days of recovery from rhinoplasty.
Using cold packs for the first 48 hours after surgery is recommended to help reduce swelling, bruising, and pain. The ice packs should be applied every few hours, for no longer than 20 minutes. It can help to place a cloth between your nose and ice pack to protect your skin. Dr. Sadati will provide you with information regarding your post-op diet. In general, patients should start with bland, soft foods, and gradually transition to their regular, low-salt diet. If you experience nausea following surgery, soft foods such as mashed potatoes or pudding are recommended. We will prescribe Zofran if you are experiencing severe nausea.
The average recovery for a male rhinoplasty is four to eight days. Post-operative healing depends on the complexity of the surgery and how well you follow your post-operative instructions. We strongly recommend that you avoid any strenuous activity during your recovery so that you don’t cause additional bleeding and swelling. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to rest and recover from surgery.
The interior function of nose is to clean and humidify the air for lungs. Since the interior of your nose will continue to be swollen for several weeks, you need to use ocean nasal spray to moisturize it. At that time, your airway will start to clear and you will be able to breathe clean and moisturized air. Your sleeping pattern will also improve.
You must not drink alcohol during your rhinoplasty recovery. Alcohol dilates the blood vessels and can increase post-operative bleeding. Combining alcohol and pain medication is dangerous. We also ask you not drive while you are taking prescription pain medication. Also, do not smoke or use cigarette replacements during the recovery process. Smoking will decrease the oxygen supply, which can inhibit wound healing and cause tissue death.
In the days following surgery, some patients may question their decision to undergo rhinoplasty. This is not unusual. It can be upsetting to see the incisions and swelling that occur ensuing rhinoplasty. If you are feeling stressed, remember that you are in the early stages of recovery and this feeling will pass. Remember that you have entrusted your nose to a highly-skilled plastic surgeon with many years of experience.
It is normal to compare ourselves to others and desire feedback on our results. However, sometimes the input from family and friends can create emotional confusion during recovery. Please trust Dr. Sadati’s evaluation of your progress. He has led thousands of surgeries and will advise you what to expect. Lastly, some patients become disheartened when friends or family don’t acknowledge that they’ve had a rhinoplasty. The results may be subtle, and your friends may notice your facial improvement, but they may not be able to decide what is different. In other cases, your loved ones may be unsure of what to say. If you bring up the topic, you may discover that your friends may be very involved in discussing your rhinoplasty.
Remember, you can always rely on the expertise of Dr. Sadati, who will ensure you understand what to expect emotionally during your recovery.
