Rhinoplasty / Nose surgery

Reasons for undergoing a Rhinoplasty

The nose is a dominant facial feature.  Subtle anomalies can develop into significant issues.  The nose is susceptible to trauma  and may be distorted as a result.  Empathetic surgery can ameliorate these problems.

 

Surgery

The skeleton of the nose can be remodelled by adjusting bony

and cartilaginous constituents

 

Anaesthetic

General anaesthetic- over night stay

 

Back to work

Usually within two weeks

 

Scars

Within the nostrils or with additional scar through the columella.

May also have scars at the base of the nostrils

Gradually fade and become barely perceptible.
