Through rhinoplasty, we can reduce or increase nose size as well as change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. They can also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve breathing problems such as a deviated septum. Call us at London Plastic Surgery Centre for full assessment.
Nasal surgery, or rhinoplasty, can address the nasal hump, tip, and functional nasal breathing problems.
During surgery, the nasal bump and bulbous or round tip is precisely trimmed.
After the nasal hump is trimmed, the resultant flattened bridge needs to be narrowed. This is performed by carefully cutting (not breaking) the nasal bones.
The final shaping and contouring is then performed.
With time, the incisions usually are completely inconspicuous.
Open rhinoplasty requires small incisions in the skin of the nose. After healing, these incisions are usually undetectable.
Airway problems can often be improved, and a deviated or bent septum is straightened.
A nasal splint is worn for about one week.
The final result should be a natural appearance, well tailored to your other facial features. The ultimate result should be total facial harmony.
