A Rhinoplasty procedure (or nose job) refines the nose by surgically reshaping the bone, tissue, and cartilage or by inserting grafts or implants into the nose. It is not uncommon for a nose to lack symmetry, have a slight bump or to have a deviated septum. Many people wish to have rhinoplasty as they feel self-conscious and feel that the nose they have inherited or injured is disproportionate or has unsightly bumps.
Our expert rhinoplasty surgeons can reshape the bridge, tip, septum, nostrils, and overall profile of the nose to enhance the appearance and create a smaller more proportionate nose. Whilst surgical techniques are advanced, there are medical limitations as to how much the nose can be altered. Each patient will be advised on the specific changes that can be performed and manage expectations of what results can be achieved during their surgeon consultation. Benefits of Having a Rhinoplasty Procedure
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or nose reshaping, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that refines the nose by surgically reshaping the bone, tissue, and cartilage or by inserting grafts or implants into the nose. A Rhinoplasty surgeon can reshape the hump at the bridge of the nose, straighten the septum, change the length of the nose, reshape the tip, change the dimensions of the nostrils or overall profile, to enhance the appearance of the nose.
There are several reasons why a patient might consider rhinoplasty surgery:
There are two common nose job techniques, open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty, the technique performed, is determined on the patient’s physical requirements and the surgeon’s preference.
Each individual is different, a rhinoplasty is not a ‘one size fits all’ procedure. Our specialist rhinoplasty surgeons will consider factors such as, the patient’s facial features, the size of the nose, the skin quality, the patient’s age, past medical history, and their desired outcome. After thorough assessment, the surgeon will recommend the best treatment plan for them and discuss the risks, limitations and benefits of rhinoplasty surgery.
A rhinoplasty procedure is carried out under general anaesthetic and can take between 1- 2 hrs depending on the patient’s requirements. The surgery can be performed as a day case, or the patient may be required to stay overnight to recover in one of our MYA hospitals.
Patients are advised to take 7-10 days off work following a rhinoplasty procedure and attend post-operative nurse appointments at one of our MYA clinical hubs. The nose cast will be removed by a MYA nurse at around 10 days post-op, depending on the surgeon’s advice.
After surgery, patients may experience some pain and discomfort. It is common for there to be some nasal congestion causing difficulty with breathing through the nose during the first week or so, this should improve once the nasal passage clears, the cast is removed and swelling reduces. Pain relief will be provided to ease discomfort.
Bruising and swelling will not be restricted to the nose and can affect the whole face, this is normal following a rhinoplasty procedure. Swelling should gradually start to subside after 7-14 days, patients should expect the changes to the nose to be apparent, once swelling has reduced. The healing will evolve over days, weeks and months but it can take up to 1 year post-op to see the final result.
*There is no guarantee of specific outcomes so individual results and experiences can vary from person to person.
Nose Jobs with MYA can cost anywhere from £6,995. Rhinoplasty procedure costs are tailored to individual requirements and can vary per person. When considering cosmetic surgery, it is important to research the procedure, surgeons and cosmetic surgery provider in detail. To read more about our finance options, click here.
Following a nose job (or rhinoplasty procedure), patients typically feel a little bit sore and uncomfortable. Pain relief will be prescribed as required to ease any discomfort. Rhinoplasty patients should expect some bruising to the face, this is completely normal and should subside after 7-14 days. It is common for there to be some nasal congestion causing difficulty with breathing through the nose during the first week or so, this should improve once the nasal passage clears, the cast is removed, and swelling reduces.
Every patient’s rhinoplasty recovery timeline is different. MYA recommend a 6 week recovery process, any bruising and swelling should subside between 7-14 days and healing will evolve over several weeks and months but can take up to 1 year post-op to see the finale nose result. Patients will need to attend post-op check ups with their MYA Nurse to monitor their healing. After rhinoplasty surgery, patients can expect to return to work between 7-10 days post-op for office based jobs. If your job is more physically demanding, you may be required to take 2 weeks off work for recovery, this can be discussed with your MYA Nurse.
