The complexities of rhinoplasty are further emphasized when this operation is undertaken in the male patient, and a growing percentage of the rhinoplasty population comprises men. We review the senior author's approach to rhinoplasty analysis, preoperative consultation, and surgical techniques that have been successfully employed for over 40 years. Specific recommendations and modifications to these techniques are discussed as they relate to the rhinoplasty operation in male patients.
