Male Rhinoplasty Toronto Expert
Rhinoplasty refers to a cosmetic surgical procedure that alters the form, shape, and/or structure of the nose. It can also refer to a procedure that also improves airflow function and flow, in addition to aesthetical enhancements.
“A lot more males are seeking cosmetic surgery as a whole, and certainly more and more men are seeking out male Rhinoplasty Toronto for a multitude of reasons,” says Dr. Philip Solomon. “Generally speaking, patients are looking for aesthetic enhancement of the nose, but men may have a history of injuries to their nose, from sports to altercations, more so than women generally have.”
Dr. Solomon specializes in Facial Plastic Surgery at his practice in Old Thornhill in Toronto. With his experience of over a thousand rhinoplasties, Dr. Solomon has done it all, from subtle refinements to significant reconstruction and alteration. Dr. Solomon has also traveled aboard in order to learn the most advanced and innovative surgical procedures from world renowned facial plastic surgeons, continues to attend international conferences and has just completed an 8 year tenure as Chief of Surgery at Machenzie Health Hospital.
“Since I do reconstructive in addition to cosmetic surgery on the nose, that allows me to see some of the more complex, challenging cases on men who have really had their nose damaged,” says Dr. Solomon, who believes his patients choose him for his extensive experience.
Furthermore, Rhinoplasty has a reputation for being a surgical procedure that has a high revision rate. Dr. Solomon’s extensive experience and surgical skill simply adds to his commitment to a lower revision rate and much higher satisfactory outcome.
BEFORE & AFTER

Correcting Functional Issues, Like Snoring
“Men may have functional breathing problems, and at the same time they may look to aesthetically enhance their nose,” says Dr. Solomon. “The common thing for men to do is correct a breathing problem while straightening their crooked nose.”
Surgeries that may be required to address functional breathing issues include Septoplasty and Turbinate surgery and can often be combined with Rhinoplasty into one surgery. In Ontario, nasal procedures to correct breathing difficulty or deformity from trauma may be covered by OHIP.
“Similar problems do arise in women but they often have less functional problems,” Dr. Solomon says. “Cosmetic enhancement may be newer to men than women. Women are more apt to care about their aesthetics; men less so. But their interest is growing and evolving in the world of aesthetic medicine. Even some of Hollywood’s top male stars have had their noses tweaked.”
Treating Aesthetic Issues
The aesthetic goals of men are not the aesthetic goals of women, according to Dr. Solomon.
“My belief is that with male Rhinoplasty Toronto, the goal is specifically not to overdo and not to feminize,” explains Dr. Solomon. “There’s a very fine boundary when looking for refinement without feminization.”
Typically, masculine noses are defined by a straight and strong appearance, in proportion with their facial features. Men’s thicker skin and cartilage can require specialized techniques only available to surgeons with the experience of thousands of surgeries, like Dr. Solomon.
The appearance of a man’s nose is greatly affected by his chin. A weak, or small chin can make the nose appear disproportionately larger, and vice-versa. A Rhinoplasty to reduce the size of the nose can correct the disproportion, but a chin implant may be advised to create the most optimal outcome of facial harmony, according to Dr. Solomon.
