Reshape your nose and improve your self-confidence

Surgery to correct a cosmetic nose defect is done for many reasons. In most cases patients are self-conscious about their noses, and undergoing a Rhinoplasty can help you regain lost confidence in yourself and your appearance.

In general, Cosmetic Nose Surgery is very tricky. This is because, well, it’s your nose and a landmark facial feature. Special care must be taken to obtain the result you want but not compromise your overall appearance. You can see the dilemma.

Of course, some Cosmetic Nose Surgeries are easier than others – i.e. removing an unwanted bump from the bridge of your nose is very common and has standard procedures that allow for predictable results. Whereas complete reconstruction requires a far more analytical approach.

Being in the centre of your face, another common concern from patients is that of scarring. The incisions are made in the inside of the nostril which makes the scars virtually impossible to see. You will also be advised to use a scar treatment post op, which you can get directly from my rooms or most Plastic Surgeons.

What is most important when discussing your Rhinoplasty is to be realistic to a natural outcome. I want you to look like you, but give you confidence that your nose is the way you want it.

As a team we will need to discuss the possible risks of undergoing surgery and the best recovery methods to ensure a good result and I will need to explain my chosen approach. That is why I like to offer you a second consultation free of charge to make certain that you are happy and comfortable with the procedure.

The surgery will be done under general anaesthetic and will take roughly 90 minutes – depending on your requirements. Unfortunately, you will need to spend the night in hospital and a few weeks in a nose splint. There will be some facial bruising post op, but I’m sure you would be expecting that.
