Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose-reshaping surgery or the
Nose-Job, is the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the UK, after Breast Enhancement
Rhinoplasty is so popular because the nose is often the most prominent of the facial features,
and this is unfortunately especially true when the nose is less aesthetically pleasing or over-sized for the
proportions of the face!
Rhinoplasty enables you to remodel the shape and size of your nose, smoothing out bumps, changing features that
you don't like.

has improved by leaps and bounds, both socially and professionally.
Rhinoplasty is also one of the cosmetic surgery procedures that is most easily combined with other plastic
surgery. For example, many people choose to combine it with Eyelid Surgery or a Face Lift! Also, because a weak chin can exaggerate the prominence of
the nose, many people have had great result from combining Rhinoplasty with Chin Implant Surgery.

If your nose seems out of proportion compared to your other facial features, seems too wide, has a bump on the
nasal bridge, has excessively flared nostrils, has been broken or damaged due to an accident, or is crooked and
asymmetrical, you may benefit from rhinoplasty.
In fact, the amount of reshaping that is possible make it seem inappropriate that the procedure should be known
as something as mundane as the "nose job"!
The rhinoplasty surgery requires a general anaesthetic. Then, incisions can be made from inside the nose, so
scarring is not visible. Where this is not possible, as in the case of narrowing the nose, or reducing flared
nostrils, incisions may be made instead along the crease, where the nose joins the face, hiding any scars, or a
small incision is made to the columella, the partition between the nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is performed as either an open or closed procedure. Open rhinoplasty is a longer, more involved
procedure, but is capable of a greater degree of nose reshaping. Closed rhinoplasty is a procedure more suited to
minimal modifications of the nose. Read about Open vs Closed

straighter or narrower.
