Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) for men

Feel good about your nose and your appearance with Perfecta, the North’s Number 1 Cosmetic Surgery Clinic

Nose surgery, (rhinoplasty), for men from Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery.


What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or nose reshaping, is a procedure to make your nose smaller and in better proportion with your face. Research shows that rhinoplasty increases body confidence and self-esteem.

Closed or open rhinoplasty?

There are two main types of rhinoplasty. The closed approach involves making small cuts inside your nose and is great for reducing the hump. Open rhinoplasty is a more involved procedure that enables us to do more to change the size and shape of your nose. We will help you choose the type of rhinoplasty you need to achieve the result you want. 

What does rhinoplasty procedure involve?

Rhinoplasty is done with you asleep and takes 1-2 hours, depending on the type of rhinoplasty you choose. You can go home a few hours later. We use dissolving sutures and showerproof tapes and splint so you can shower and wash your hair straight away. Most of our patients return to their normal activities and work in a week or so and are back to the gym in a few weeks. Typically, your nose takes a few months to settle fully after closed rhinoplasty. Your nose and tip swelling, in particular, takes longer to settle after open rhinoplasty.

Before treatment

First appointment

At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them at least twice before your procedure. Your first appointment with your surgeon a lasts round half an hour and includes specialist assessment. Then we will discuss how we can help you achieve the result you want. We will go through your options for treatment and then discuss your rhinoplasty with you so you understand what is involved and answer any questions you may have. We will show you lots of photographs of our patients who have had rhinoplasty to show you the type of outcome we can achieve for you.

After your first appointment we will send you los of information about your treatment options and provide you with a fixed cost for your package of care. We will then give you time and space to decide what you would like to do. When you are ready our office team will help you book a date for your procedure and arrange a second appointment with your surgeon.

Second appointment

Your second appointment gives you the chance to meet your surgeon again and discuss your procedure in more detail. We will go through all the important information about your rhinoplasty, including the site of incisions and subsequent scars, hump reduction, tip refinement and nasal bone fracture, as required. We will discuss your hospital care, anaesthetic and recovery and your aftercare plan. We will also discuss the potential risks and complications of surgery, so you are fully informed.

Pre-assessment appointment

A few weeks before your procedure you will have an appointment with our nurses for a pre-operative medical. Our nurses will tell you everything you need to know for the day of your procedure, such as what time to stop eating and drinking, what time to come in to the hospital, and what to bring with you. If you have any questions about these details or anything else then please ask your nurse or feel free to email or call us.

Do your research

Read up on your treatment options before your appointment. Good sources of information are our website and the BAPRAS website (www.bapras.co.uk) and BAAPS website (www.baaps.co.uk). It can be helpful to read blogs written by people who have had your procedure. But bear in mind they only have experience of their own journey. Your expert Consultant Plastic Surgeon and our experienced nurses have looked after hundreds of patients and have an unrivalled level of knowledge and understanding to help you. Ask us anything you want to know.

Write down a list of questions 

In the week before your appointment make a note of any questions you want to ask. We will give you lots of useful information during your appointment. Afterwards we will email you with written information to help you make the right decision and make sure you are fully informed. Don’t worry if you forget what you wanted to ask. We will be seeing you for a second appointment or you can email us at any time.

Can I see photos of your work?

Yes of course. We will show you lots of photographs of our patients who have had rhinoplasty to show the type of improvement we can achieve.

Take some ‘before’ selfies

You might like to take some photos before your procedure to remind you how you used to look! We will also do this on the day of your procedure for your medical records. 

Can I get finance? 

The private hospitals we work with offer finance for your procedure. Please ask for further details at your consultation or click here for more information.

On the day of your procedure


Things to bring

Bring your phone and charger and a book or magazine. There is always a lot of waiting around in hospital so bring things to keep you amused. There is a TV in your private room and your partner, family member or friend can stay with you the whole time. Bring you dressing gown and slippers and you can stay comfortable in your favourite things whilst you wait.

Will I see my Consultant Plastic Surgeon on the day?

When you arrive at the hospital you will be shown to your private room and your nurse will get you ready for your procedure. At Perfecta your care is led by your Consultant Plastic Surgeon and you will see them again on the day of your procedure to go through some final paperwork, including the hospital consent form, take photographs for your medical records and do your pre-operative markings. Then you are ready to go.

Who will give my anaesthetic?

We only work with experienced Consultant Anaesthetists, all of whom are also NHS Consultant Anaesthetists. You will have the opportunity to meet your Consultant Anaesthetist on the day as well. They will complete your pre-operative assessment to make sure you are safe and ready to go ahead. They will talk you through the anaesthetic and your recovery. General anaesthetic (asleep) can make people feel sick and surgery can be painful. We take great care to make your procedure as smooth as possible and do lots of things to help you wake up without feeling sore or sick.

Your package of care


All of your after-care is provided as part of your package of care, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. When you are ready to go home, the nurses will give you an appointment for your first check up and removal of your splint a week later. You will see your Consultant Plastic Surgeon 3 months after surgery. If you have any problems in between appointments then don’t worry, just give us a call, speak to the nurses and come back to see us.

When can I go home?

Most of our patients go home the same day after rhinoplasty. Some swelling and bruising is common for the first week or so. Sitting up, cool packs and an extra pillow in bed can help reduce this. Most people return to their normal activities and work a week or so after surgery.

Can I shower after my procedure?

Yes – you can shower from day one. We would like you to shower and wash your hair every day after surgery. Just dab your nose dry with a towel and carry on.

When can I return to normal activities and work?

Please gently return to all your normal activities straight after your procedure. Most of our clients are back to most things (including work) a week or so after rhinoplasty and are back to everything (Including the gym and exercise classes) in a month or so. You can drive as soon as you feel safe and able to do so.

When can I go on holiday?

This is a common question in clinic, particularly leading up to the summer. You could travel the following day if you need to. However it would be sensible to wait a couple of weeks. Most patients settle well and without any problems after rhinoplasty. However if you do have any issues then it is nice to be able to pop in and see us.

Sun protection and skin conditioning

Your skin will be more sensitive in the sun for a while after surgery. Look after yourself in the sun, particularly in the first six months after your procedure. Factor 50 suncream and lots of moisturising cream (or Bio-oil) are helpful

What our patients say about Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery

“Amazing experience”

“I had closed Rhinoplasty done by Dr Dunkin back in January and I can honestly say I am over the moon with the results. I can not praise him enough for his professional and compassionate attitude. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and the Nuffield hosipital if you were thinking of having this procedure. I would again like to say thank you to Dr Dunkin and his staff”.

“Open rhinoplasty – York”

Best money I’ve ever spent on myself. Anyone who isn’t happy with their nose will know that every time you look in the mirror, see a photo of yourself or look out the corner of your eye all you can see is this big ugly nose. Doesn’t matter what anyone says you know you hate it. I did this purely because i hated it. No ones ever bullied me for it- had the odd comment here and there but nothing major. Its been 3 months since I had the procedure and I only wish I did it earlier. Its still swollen on the tip, but even with the swelling I’m 10 times happier. It was a real straight forward procedure. Discussed what i wanted, then went ahead with it”

“Rhinoplasty in later life”

“My story starts about 40 years ago when I started to be uncomfortable with the shape of my nose. My daughter had the surgery just before me (she is 21) and Chris D did such a fantastic job that I decided to have the surgery at 48. I didn’t look for a cheap deal as felt that reputation of the surgeon and aftercare was more than worth the money”.

“My experience from Perfecta Cosmetic Surgery including appointments and general was very professional. What to say about the result. My Consultant surgeon did a fantastic job and I am 100% satisfied with the result after 3 months”.

“In fact it looked great when I took the dressing off at 7 days. Obviously wish I had done it sooner but the result may have been different in the hands of someone else. Chris you are a true artist, sculptor I believe…Thank you”

“Just to say many thanks for being so kind to me, answering all my questions and putting me at ease. Kind regards to you and staff”

“I have been lucky to be able to count hospital admissions in my life on one hand. All the staff I have come into contact with, before, during and after my surgery without exception have been polite, friendly and helpful…Finally the new schnoz! It delights me on a daily basis. It still doesn’t feel entirely part of me but continues to feel less numb/stiff as the weeks pass. I am thrilled that no one who wasn’t in the know has noticed or given me a second glance which again I credit you with giving me a natural new nose. I see a massive difference and the folk I did tell (and therefore had studied my nose more closely beforehand) all think you’ve done an amazing job. Thank you and the staff once again. Thank you”

“Couldn’t be happier”

“In June 2017 I had a closed Rhinoplasty in York performed by Mr Dunkin. The decision to undergo the procedure was one I had spent years mulling over. From my first consultation with Mr Dunkin it was clear that he was extremely experienced and very knowledgeable. We discussed the different surgical options for me and he asked me what about my nose I wanted to change. Whilst the serious nature of the operation was not overlooked, during this consultation Mr Dunkin made the operation seem very manageable and almost simple”.

“Having a rhinoplasty had always been a wishful aspiration of mine that I wasn’t sure would ever materialise, it only became a tangible goal after this first consultation with Mr Dunkin. I immediately felt as though I could trust Mr Dunkin to perform my rhinoplasty and being able to trust your surgeon entirely makes the experience a lot less stressful. My biggest concern going into surgery was the revision surgery rate. The hospital had provided me with an information sheet in which it listed the percentage of patients who feel they require further surgery as around 20%. I raised this with Mr Dunkin who reassured me that his revision rate was much lower and that the majority were for under-corrections”.

“Mr Dunkin came to see me before the operation, his calm yet fiercely capable manner put me at ease once again and left me excited for my impending operation instead of the nervous wreck I had expected to be. My surgery went very well with no complications and lasted under 2 hours. Mr Dunkin was there when I woke up to reassure me again. I approached surgery with a healthy attitude, I didn’t have an image in my head of what I wanted my nose to look like and both pre and post-op I kept reminding myself that I wasn’t getting the perfect nose stuck on my face, I was just getting a different version of my nose. My nose now is beyond what I dared to dream it could be. I spent a lifetime shying away from all conversations about noses and avoiding photographs from the side, now I am only 3 months post-op and I can already feel my confidence growing”.

“I am extremely glad that I chose Mr Dunkin as my surgeon as I cannot imagine being in a safer pair of hands. I wish to take this opportunity to thank Mr Dunkin and the whole team as I could not be happier with my outcome and my entire experience. As cliché as it sounds it truly has been life changing for me and my only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner”.
