Addresses Changing the asthetic of the nose

Rhinoplasty remains one of the most popular procedures performed in the UK. Innovative cosmetic techniques mean that whether you feel your nose is too big or too small, plastic surgeons are now able to carry out more complex treatments to help you achieve the look you want with a faster recovery than ever before.

Is this right for me?

There are various reasons that Rhinoplasty may be right for you including increasing or reducing the size of the nose; changing the nasal tip or the bridge, removing any unsightly humps or bumps and making the nose straighter or narrower.

What the procedure involves

Rhinoplasty usually takes around one to two hours under General Anaesthetic, although this depends on the extent of the procedure.

In most cases, bone and cartilage are removed or shaved down to either shrink the appearance of parts of the nose or to widen the breathing passages. In a few cases removed cartilage or bone from one area might be used to build up another area to fashion symmetry of the nose.

Your surgeon will close the incision with a series of small, dissolvable stitches. A plastic splint will also be applied to help maintain the shape of your new nose.

What is Nose Correction Surgery?

Nose correction surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure to reshape your nose. You may feel your nose is too big for your facial features, or you have an unattractive bump or sagging tip. You may have even had an accident or injury that’s left your nose looking distorted and crooked. Whatever the reason, nose surgery can effectively change the appearance of your nose and help you feel more confident.

Everybody has different tastes and preferences, meaning Nose Correction Surgery (rhinoplasty) can vary a bit depending on the final goal. The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and most incisions are tiny and most are made inside the nose, so they will not be visible afterwards.

In most cases, bone and cartilage are removed or shaved down to either shrink the appearance of parts of the nose or to widen the breathing passages. In a few cases removed cartilage or bone from one area might be used to build up another area to fashion symmetry of the nose.

Nose correction usually involves:

  • Reduction Rhinoplasty: The nose is made smaller as cartilage and bone is removed or rearranged through cuts inside your nostrils.
  • Augmentation Rhinoplasty: The bone is reshaped through cuts inside or outside of the nostrils and artificial implants or extra cartilage are used to build up the nose to your desired look.
  • Rhinotip: The tip of the nose and nostrils are altered to your desired shape.
