Nose Reshaping Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Nose looks too big with a prominent dorsal hump; the tip looks too broad; the tip is down pointing and hook-like; nostrils (alae) are too thick and wide; nose is crooked after earlier trauma; nose is crooked secondary to the presence of a deviated or damaged septum.

Description of Procedure:
These different deformities of the nose are approached either by the closed or open approach through hidden scars. Cartilage and bone are refined and shaped to suit the patient's requirements. Nose reshaping may be accompanied by augmentation. Due to the complexity of this surgery, it is insufficient to annotate here what is required and a formal consultation with full assessment is crucial before operation. Where septal work is required, the operation may be performed together with an ENT surgeon.

  • Local Anaesthesia with intravenous sedation (recommended).

Hospital Stay:
  • You will be able to walk out of the clinic
  • Stabilising tape is removed at 7 days
  • Bone work will require an external splint and nasal packs
  • Swelling around the nose will subside over the course of a few days
  • Normal activities can be resumed after 1 week when the tape (and splint if present) is removed
  • Remnant bruising and swelling will resolve by 2 weeks (which is concealable)
