The Problem

Your nose is one of your most defining features, and how it looks can have a huge impact on your confidence. You might find that you don’t like the shape or size of your nose, or a previous injury may have left it crooked or uneven.

Commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’, Rhinoplasty was the 6th most sought-after cosmetic procedure in 2014. Rhinoplasty popularity is reflected by the fact that it’s consistently been one of the most regularly performed procedures around the globe. Rhinoplasty procedure is designed to help those who are unhappy with the size, shape or form of their nose, either for aesthetic or medical reasons.

We are proud to have some of the UK’s most experienced Consultant Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons performing our Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping) procedures including Mr. Davood Fallahdar and Mr Miles Berry in LondonMr. Deemesh Oudit and Mr Adel Fattah in Manchester and Mr Alastair Lowrie in Glasgow.

What is a Rhinoplasty?

A Rhinoplasty or Nose Job is a plastic surgery procedure aimed at correcting and reconstructing the shape of the nose. It is frequently performed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the area, but it can also be used to restore nasal functions and correct deviated septums.

The procedure can reshape the tip, bridge, or whole profile of the nose, and can help with some breathing difficulties.

There are 3 main types of rhinoplasty (nose reshaping):

  • Standard rhinoplasty – Full nose correction of the bridge, nose tip and alar bases (nostrils)
  • Septo-rhinoplasty – Full nose correction, including the alteration of a deviated nasal septum (the cartilage partition in the nose). If you suffer from symptoms of a deviated septum, this procedure is also suitable
  • Rhino-tip – Correction of the tip and alar bases

Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest Cosmetic Surgery procedures, which means that the techniques and skills of our surgeons have been sharpened to perfection. Depending on your expectations and requirements, our Cosmetic Surgeons will recommend the most suitable procedure for the results you wish to achieve.

Your nose is one of your most defining features, and how it looks can have a huge impact on your confidence. You might find that you don’t like the shape or size of your nose, or a previous injury may have left it crooked or uneven. Nasal blockages from the shape of your nose may also be causing permanent breathing problems.

Whether the reasoning is for confidence or medical purposes, our Plastic Surgeons will work alongside you to help you achieve your goals.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty and Septorhinoplasty surgeries are performed under general anaesthetic and can take up to two hours, depending on the nature of the procedure. For both surgeries you will need to stay overnight in hospital for monitoring.

Rhinotip correction may be carried out under local anaesthetic with sedation, under which circumstance you may be able to return home on the same day.

Regardless of the type of Rhinoplasty surgery you are having, your surgeon will work hard to ensure you are left with no visible scarring. For a standard Rhinoplasty, your surgeon will make incisions inside your nose in order to allow for alterations to the bone structure, and for those undergoing Rhino-tip procedures, your surgeon will operate on the cartilage inside your nose, either removing or reshaping parts of it to give the desired shape.

Prior to your surgery, your surgeon will cover all aspects of the procedure with you and will advise you on your individual case.

The Rhinoplasty Results

Results from Rhinoplasty procedures can be drastic, transforming not only the nose but the whole face. Whichever surgery you are having you will be left with no visible scarring, though you will need to wear a splint across your nose for 7-10 days to protect it.

Your final results will normally show after a couple of months, once swelling and bruising have completely dispersed.

Rhinoplasty Recovery / Downtime

We recommend that you take 7-14 days off work.

Bruising and swelling of the eyes and upper cheeks is normal, and will subside within 10-14 days. You may also experience a sore throat after the surgery.

The swelling inside your nose may take a few months to disappear completely, but your clinic should be there to help you if you have any concerns during recovery.
