About service

A rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anaesthetic. The length of the procedure and the technique used will depend on how much your nose will change. Your surgeon in Leicester will refine the tip of your nose by removing some of the 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 (closed rhinoplasty) or your surgeon will make a small cut in the area between your nostrils to expose the underlying area (open rhinoplasty). Be sure and discuss what method will be used with your surgeon. You may need to spend one to two 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 surgery. To control swelling and bruising you may be given ice packs. You will be given pain relief medication. For further information visit
