Cosmetic Rhinoplasty

What is Cosmetic Rhinoplasty?

A Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is the medical term used to describe cosmetic or aesthetic surgical reshaping of the nose to describe cosmetic or aesthetic surgical reshaping of the nose to achieve a more attractive physical appearance.

Rhinoplasty surgical treatment may also contain correcting a hump, a dip, or refinement of the shape, function or dimension of the nasal tip.

Your surgeon can make your nose smaller in an operation called a reduction Rhinoplasty, or larger in an augmentation rhinoplasty. They can change the size and shape of your nose, from the tip to the bridge, including your nostrils. Your surgeon can also change the angle between your nose and top lip.

Who can and can not get the Rhinoplasty.

By the time you’re around 16 (for girls) or 18 (for boys), your nose will have stopped growing and be fully developed, although there are exceptions. So, if you want an operation for cosmetic reasons, it’s best to hold off until at least then.

What Rhinoplasty involves

Nose reshaping is usually carried out under general anaesthetic.

Depending on the type of surgery you're having, the surgeon may:

  • Make your nose smaller (nose reduction) – by removing some of the cartilage and bone
  • Make your nose larger (nose augmentation) – by taking cartilage from the ears and bone from the hips, elbow or skull, and using it to build up the nose (known as a "graft")
  • Change the shape of your nose (including the nostrils) – by breaking the nose bone and rearranging the cartilage
  • Change the angle between the nose and top lip by breaking the nose bone and rearranging the cartilage
Your health deserves the right second opinion
