Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘Nose Job’ is a popular procedure that reshapes your nose in terms of shape or size to help you feel more confident in how you look.

The Procedure

In the run up to your visit, our dedicated team will advise you in how to prepare for your procedure. For rhinoplasty you should avoid eating or drinking from midnight on the day of your operation.

We understand that surgery can be a daunting time, so our warm and friendly staff will be there to make your experience as calm and comforting as possible to ensure you receive the highest quality patient care.

At your previous consultations your consultant will have explained the various options with you, including the look you would like to receive.

The doctor may be able to operate through the nostrils, this is called a ‘closed’ rhinoplasty.

They may need to make a small cut, which is known as an ‘open’ rhinoplasty. Your consultant will advise you beforehand though during your consultations. Whether you go under a local or general anaesthetic will depend on your nose shape and which operation you choose.

The procedure usually takes up to 3 hours. As your operation will be a day-case procedure, you will be able to go home once you have made a full recovery from the anaesthesia.

Your Consultation

When you speak to your chosen consultant, you will discuss your exact concerns with your nose, and your consultant can advise you and help you to make an informed decision about which procedure may be right for you depending on your specific concerns with your nose. It may be that a reduction in size or shape may be all that you need, but for some people their other facial features have a big effect on the way their nose looks.

Your consultant will answer any questions you may have about the procedure, recovery and aftercare, and you are encouraged to take your time in making the decision about whether to proceed with the operation, so you are under no obligation to make an immediate choice and you can feel 100% confident and happy in your decision.

Why you might need it

There are a variety of reasons why you may choose to have rhinoplasty, from reshaping due to a broken nose/injury that may restrict your breathing ability, or to help boost your confidence if you’re unhappy with its appearance.

Results

During your consultation your surgeon will discuss your expected end results with you in depth.

It will take some time for the swelling to fully go down, this is when most of the results will be obvious, and the shape over your nose will continue to refine over the months following surgery.

Recovery/Aftercare

You will need to allow 2 weeks off work following the procedure. You should be able to do normal physical tasks after a few days but avoid strenuous exercise or any activities that may knock your nose. You will need to rest in an upright position and avoid bending down for a few days after your surgery. We also recommend avoiding groups of people for at least 2 weeks to reduce your chances of catching a cold whilst you give your nose time to heal.

You should plan in advance for a family member, friend, or taxi to take your home once you are discharged from hospital as you won’t be able to drive. You may also not feel up to everyday tasks during your recovery period, so you may want to ask family and friends to help you too.

Pain Relief

You will experience some bruising, swelling and pain around your nose and eyes immediately after the procedure.

Applying a cold compress/ice to the nasal area may help to reduce the swelling and bruising.

We will provide you with a supply of the medicines your consultant feels you need to take home with you once you have left hospital. This may be at an additional cost to some patients.
