About service

Having nose reshaping surgery (rhinoplasty) can give your nose a better-proportioned look and as a result improve your self-esteem. There could also be a medical reason for requiring rhinoplasty, such as a nasal blockage. A rhinoplasty (commonly known as a 'nose job') is performed under a general anaesthetic. The length of the procedure and the technique used will depend on how much your nose needs to be altered. Your surgeon can refine the tip of your nose by removing cartilage. If you have a hump (dorsum) on your nose it can be shaved down. Your surgeon can also straighten and narrow your nasal bones by breaking and then setting them. Your surgeon may need to rebuild part of your nose. The operation can be performed from inside the nostrils (known as closed rhinoplasty) or your surgeon will make a small cut in the area between your nostrils to expose the underlying area (known as open rhinoplasty). You may need to spend 1 -2 nights in hospital. You may have a splint held over your nose by tape and your nose may be packed. If your nose is packed you will need to breathe through your mouth until the packing is removed the morning after your nose reshaping surgery. To control swelling and bruising you may be given ice packs. You will be given pain relief medication.
