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 Rhinoplasty procedure can;

  • Narrow the bridge of the nose.
  • Reshape the tip of the nose.
  • Widen or narrow the nostrils.
  • Reshape the bridge of the nose.
  • Reshape the whole profile of the nose.
  • Remove bone and cartridge off the nose to reduce the size
  • Help with breathing difficulties.
  • Correct a nose previously broken from a sporting incident.

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.

Broken noses from sporting activities such as rugby and football are very common and many patients find their nose has healed crooked. A rhinoplasty is suitable for correcting crooked noses that have been broken due to sport in the past and restoring them back to their former appearance. The Private Clinic treats patients with this issue all the time.

Whether the reasoning is for confidence or medical purposes, our Plastic Surgeons will work alongside you to help you achieve your goals. Simply book a consultation today to hear about the best options available for you.

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. The Private Clinic are specialists in Rhinoplasty.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty and Septo-rhinoplasty 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.

A 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.

Your procedure will be performed under general anaesthetic and usually takes around 2 hours to complete. Regardless of the type of Rhinoplasty surgery you are having, your surgeon will work hard to ensure you are left with no visible scarring. Once complete, the skin on your nose will shrink or expand around its new shape.

A closed rhinoplasty procedure involves making tiny cuts inside the nostrils, visible signs of surgery after this procedure are minimal.

An open rhinoplasty cuts across the skin, between the nostrils this may leave fine scars.

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 after two weeks. The majority of the swelling can take up to 6 weeks to reduce but minor swelling may take a few months to settle.

A series of follow-up appointments will be made to check your progress. Read our rhinoplasty aftercare guidelines for more information.

Rhinoplasty Recovery / Downtime

Usually after surgery you will be required to stay in hospital for one night, during this time you may have dressings inside each nostril, these will be removed before you leave. You must continue to wear your splint over your nose for 7-10 days and this is then usually removed at your post-op appointment.

We recommend that you take 7-14 days off work and avoid strenuous exercise for at least six weeks. You should also not be driving until 1 weeks after your procedure, or when given the all clear from your surgeon or nurse.

You will experience some discomfort after the procedure but pain relief will be prescribed to you, do not take any medication containing aspirin until 1 week after your procedure. 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. A series of follow-up appointments will be made to check your progress. 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.

A series of follow up appointments will have been booked in for you including a wound check at around a week after the procedure and then where necessary afterwards until your 6 weeks follow up appointment with your surgeon.

We recommend that you sleep on your back with your head lifted for the first two weeks following surgery to help with swelling.
