Rhinoplasties or nose jobs as they are also referred to are growing increasingly popular with many wanting to change the appearance of the nose for both cosmetic reasons as well as breathing issues.
When it comes to choosing the right place to go it can be difficult which is why we have put together an informative guide if you are considering rhinoplasty at The Private Clinic.
What is a rhinoplasty?
Firstly let’s take a moment to discuss what rhinoplasty is, in order for you to decide if this is the treatment for you.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to correct or reconstruct the shape of the nose. It is ideal for enhancing the appearance of the nose, but it is also used to repair nasal functions and correct a deviated septum.
Types of Rhinoplasty we offer
Standard rhinoplasty – This is a full nose correction of the bridge, nose tip and nostrils (alar bases)
Septo-rhinoplasty – If you suffer from snoring, difficulty sleeping, frequent nose bleeds and repeated sinus infections then you may have what’s known as a deviated septum. If this is the case then you would be more suited to a septo-rhinoplasty which is still a full nose correction but includes the alteration of the cartilage partition in the middle of your nose to help reduce the symptoms of a deviated septum.
Rhino-tip – This is just a correction of the tip of the nose and the nostrils (alar bases)
Preservation Rhinoplasty – This is an innovative type of rhinoplasty where the procedure is performed from the inside the nose. The benefit is that all the incisions are hidden in the inside and is recommended for patients who require the bridge of the nose to be modified.
There is also the option of an open or closed procedure but this will be on your surgeon’s discretion.
Open Rhinoplasty – Incisions are made between the nostrils.
Closed Rhinoplasty – Small incisions will be made inside the nostrils.
