Rhinoplasty is commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’ or nose reshaping. As one of the most impactful cosmetic procedures, it can bring life-changing confidence.
The procedure can include refining the bridge, tip or overall profile. Many people choose to have rhinoplasty as they are self-conscious and may feel the nose they have inherited or injured is not in proportion or has unsightly bumps.
MYA Clinic in Manchester
Our Manchester clinic is our largest MYA clinic outside of London. Located in Manchester city centre, it offers a number of consultancy rooms and a range of consulting plastic surgery surgeons, including Mr Frati; one of our busiest and best surgeons.
There are two common types that can be carried out. These are:
Closed Rhino – this procedure reshapes the nose without disturbing any skin. The surgical incisions are made inside the nose.
Open Rhino – this procedure uses an incision in between the nostrils on the small column of skin that separates them – this is called the columella.
General anaesthetic is used for all nose reshaping procedures, taking around 2 hours to complete. Patients wake from the procedure with a splint across the nose and packing in the nostrils, with the latter removed before they are discharged. See our before and after photos here.
We advise at least 7-10 days are taken off work following a nose job procedure, with the splint to be removed around the 10th day. This will be done by the clinic nurse, with the exact day depending on the advice of the surgeon.
