Nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
There are four main ways to reshape a nose and it is important to have a clear idea of which part of the nose you wish to have altered.
- Rhinotip - this involves the tip of the nose, which is made up of soft cartilage and usually needs reducing in size. Usually a day case under local anaesthetic.
- Rhinoplasty - this deals with the bridge of the nose and profile.
- Septorhinoplasty - this involves altering the septum, often performed on a broken nose or on people with breathing problems.
- Rhinoplasty reconstruction - ideal for fixing the damage caused by traumatic accidents, where the nose needs rebuilding, or when the nose has a growth or deformity. Ear cartilage is often used to build the nose back up.
Some people need a combination of these operations.
Who is the procedure suitable for?
This is one of the most popular facial procedures for men and women.
What can I expect?
Rhinotip is performed as a day-case procedure and, in most cases, under local anaesthetic. Full rhinoplasty or setorhinoplasty are performed under general anaesthetic and involve an overnight stay in hospital. A small plaster cast is positioned over the nose and left on for 7 - 10 days. It can take up to a year befure the final result is achieved.
This is one of the most satisfying and confidence-building operations for men and women. A good 'nose job' can improve your self-esteem and confidence no end.
