A rhinoplasty commonly known as a nose job can dramatically alter the look of the face by surgically changing the shape of the nose.Rhinoplasty


Your nose is one of the first features people notice about you. If you are worried about its appearance, it can challenge your confidence. Nose reshaping can help to reshape and resize your nose. The results of which can dramatically change the appearance of your face. The exact details of the procedure will be different for each person.

Nose Job Procedure

The nose will have surgical incisions made either side of it or in the nostril creases. If you are opting to change the bone structure then the surgery happens entirely on the inside of your nose. There is no visible scarring* with either option.

*Please In terms of results and expectations, there are numerous variables with every patient, each surgery and every healing period.


The nasal septum is the partition that runs down the centre of the nose and separates the nostrils. The septum should be straight and upright but sometimes it is bent over slightly inside your nose. If you are prone to headaches or feel that your nose is continually blocked. You may be suffering from sinus problems and have breathing difficulties. A Septoplasty can help you breathe more easily, reduce sinus inflammation and reduce snoring. As well as help with any pain that the deviated septum could be causing. The Septoplasty procedure will not change the shape of your nose.*

*On some occasions some the bridge may appear straighter. Any other aesthetic changes you wish to achieve such as changes to your nasal tip will require a Septorhinoplasty.


A Septorhinoplasty is a procedure that both corrects the deviated septum and also reshapes your nose. This can be essential to patients who find that the shape of their nose is affecting their breathing. Unlike a Rhinoplasty, it can also improve your breathing and alleviate snoring.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Surgery going wrong can have devastating effects on the patient. We can help them fix the problem. Not all surgeries are able to correct previous Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty. They cannot take place until at least six months after the original surgery. Revision Rhinoplasty can be more complicated than the previous surgery. Especially, if the outcome has resulted in breathing difficulties or if too much of the bone has been removed.

According to a new study, there are 14 different ‘types’ of noses that a person may have. It comes as no surprise that there are different ‘types’ of nose jobs. Each of which is appropriate for the patient’s nose has and the type they want.

Here are the top four most ‘popular’ ( most common in usage) types of rhinoplasty as performed by plastic surgeons in both the US and the UK.

Reduction rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty is the most common nose job on both men and women all over the world. As the name suggests, this surgery aims to reduce the overall size and volume of the nose. Many people with larger noses feel like the nose is disproportionately large to the rest of their facial features and so the aim of this surgery is to make the patient feel like everything is more uniform. Within reduction rhinoplasty, there are specific areas that can be focused on depending on the patient’s concerns and goals. These include reducing the size of the tip of the nose, reducing the size of the nostrils and reducing the size or any bumps on the bridge of the nose.

Augmentation rhinoplasty

Augmentation rhinoplasty refers to any type of rhinoplasty in which the patient wants to alter the actual shape of the nose, and not just reduce it in size. This is common in patients who feel like their nose lacks definition, or who find their nose has an unappealing overall shape to it. While beauty is, of course, subjective, there have been some scientific tests to determine the ‘ideal’ shape/size/structure of the nose in proportion to the rest of the face, and in augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon is generally striving to have the nose better meet those expectations.

Post-Trauma Rhinoplasty

Post-trauma rhinoplasty is the term used in instances when a patient has suffered trauma to the face and has experienced damage to their nose as a result. This sometimes leads to changes in shape or asymmetry. The surgeon will, therefore, do whatever it takes to restore the nose back to its original appearance as much as possible.

Implant Rhinoplasty

Patients who feel their nose lacks any definition at all may opt for implant rhinoplasty, in which implants are inserted in the area of the nose that would benefit from more volume and shape. Silicone implants are the most commonly used implant for any type of cosmetic surgery, and rhinoplasty is no exception. However, some patients also opt for cartilage implants taken from their own bodies as this method poses no risk for rejection.
