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 a deviated septum.

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 (commonly called a nasal fracture) from a sporting incident.
  • Correct a deviated septum (a deviated septum can be caused by a nose fracture)
  • Correct a cartilage and bone fracture due to an accident from sport

There are 4 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
  • 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.

What are the benefits of a Preservation Rhinoplasty?

  • Less Downtime
  • Faster Recovery
  • Reduced Swelling and Bruising
  • Smaller Splint
  • New style nasal packs

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 Plastic 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.

We are one of the first clinics in the UK to offer the Preservation Rhinoplasty technique to our patients. Many rhinoplasty procedures are carried out to correct the dorsal hump which involves the surgeon removing the hump essentially by breaking it and then reconstructing it to change the shape of the nose. This new technique means that surgeons no longer need to break the nose during surgery. The height is instead reduced internally meaning the nose then becomes smaller and the hump disappears. This new technique is less invasive and less traumatic for the patient. Dorsal preservation also achieves a more natural result, avoiding many of the secondary deformities that lead to patients requiring revision surgery. The vast majority of patients are suitable for the preservation technique. However, 20% of patients will still require traditional Rhinoplasty surgery.  A thorough consultation is required in order to assess the best technique for each patient.

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.

A preservation rhinoplasty, whilst still performed under general anaesthetic, allows patients to return home the same day. The less invasive technique reduces the risk of post-operative bleeding meaning that the soft packs inserted inside the nose allow the patient to breathe straight away.

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.

If having a preservation rhinoplasty you will be discharged home the same day as your procedure. You will also experience much less bruising and swelling compared to a standard rhinoplasty and results can be seen instantly. The packs from surgery are usually removed within 3 days and the cast is removed after 7 days.

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

    Comments from patients

    ‘Fantastic surgeon – was the first surgeon I saw when I was considering the operation and I had no doubt he would do a fantastic job’ *


    “Dr Fallahdar was amazing, I did my research before coming to the clinic and I wouldn’t of gone with another doctor except Dr Fallahdar.  I would highly recommend him as he has changed my life more than you could imagine.  Thanks so much!” *



    “A very easy journey, with lots of reassurance’” *


    “So happy with the results, everything has been excellent from 1st consultation onwards.  Really glad I made the decision” *


    “Having been unhappy with the size and shape of my nose for years, I finally plucked up the courage to book a consultation for a Rhinoplasty with Dr. Fallahdar after being recommended to him by a friend and I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made. From start to finish I felt extremely well looked after by the competent and friendly staff and reassured that I was in safe hands by the confident way in which Dr. Fallahdar explained the nature of the procedure to me. He was happy to answer all of my questions and he listened carefully to how I wanted to change my nose. The results are fabulous whilst still being very natural and everyone has commented on what an incredible job he has done. I am so pleased that I chose him as my surgeon and would recommend him and The Private Clinic to anyone considering cosmetic surgery. My nose looks better than I could ever have imagined and I no longer feel paranoid or anxious about the way I look. Instead I feel like a brand new woman and I have never felt more confident or beautiful.” *
