The nose is the central feature of your face therefore the size and shape of it define the overall balance of your face.

There are many different ways our surgeons can change the look of your nose; the size can be increased or reduced, the shape of the bridge and tip changed, bumps removed, nostrils can be narrowed and also the angle between the nose and upper lip changed.
There are two main types of rhinoplasty that are performed by our surgeons. With one type of rhinoplasty a stent is placed in the nose to raise the bridge of the nose, this type of surgery is performed most often on Asian patients. Most Western people have what is called open rhinoplasty and with this type of surgery the size and shape of the nose is reduced or changed. This is done my manipulating the bone and cartilage within the nose. The nostrils can also be altered with the incisions are made in the natural crease of the nose.
After surgery a small stint or plaster will be placed on the nose for 7-10 days to help keep the desired shape and also to help protect it. You should expect swelling and bruising for the first few weeks and bleeding from the nose is not un-common also for the first few days. We advise you not to do any strenuous activity for at least 2-3 weeks and also no contact sports or similar activities for three months.
As with all types of surgeries there are risks involved, the complications can include an unexpected reaction to the anesthetic, bleeding, infection or clot formation, of course all of these risks are minimized by experienced surgical technique, specialist care and by using highly qualified surgeons and nursing stuff.
