Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose-job is the reshaping of the nose, which changes the size and / or shape of the nose in both males and females. This surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the UK. People who are unhappy with the size or shape of their nose often opt for nose job surgery. One of the most common complaints from patients is that their nose seems out of alignment or that they are unhappy with their ‘side profile’.

There are many different options and techniques when it comes to rhinoplasty, depending on the patients needs and goals. However, arranging a consultation with a nose specialist is the best way to find out all of the information you need and whether or not you are a suitable candidate for nose-correction surgery.

Many factors are taken in to account and a specific individual assessment is carried out on each patient. Factors include; age, nose size, nose shape and skin condition. It is also worth noting that it is imperative that decisions for nose surgery are not taken lightly and that a full psychological assessment is carried out to ensure there are not any social or emotional issues affecting your self confidence, self esteem and decision.

Why Do People Have it?

There are many reasons why people choose to have surgery on their nose. Each reason can be categorised in to 2 main categories: medical and cosmetic. The two categories can also merge when patients have undergone surgery for medical reasons, such as a sports injury, but then been unhappy at the results some time later, and therefore opted for cosmetic correction.

People who undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty often have an issue with a particular part of their nose. The most common cosmetic areas are; the tip of the nose, and the bridge, or dorsum. The issues / complaints surrounding the bridge of the nose is that it has a bump / hump that sticks out. People who are unhappy with the tip of their nose complain that their nose appears too wide / thin, too round or beaked. Length is also a common issue for some patients. Rhinoplasty that is carried out for medical purposes is often done so because of an injury to the nose.

Accidents and sports injuries are two of the main culprits when it comes to medical rhinoplasty. Issues with the nose can also impact on the quality of life of a patient such as; mental health and causing breathing problems.

You may undergo rhinoplasty to:

- Change the length of your nose
- Change the width of the nose / nostrils
- Change the size of the nostrils
- Change the bump at the nose bridge
- Reposition your nose after accident / injury
