What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery or “nose job”, is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape and refine a patient’s nose. Rhinoplasty is a very frequently requested procedure due to the fact that it is common for people to dislike the shape or size of their nose.
Successful rhinoplasty surgery achieves a more harmonious aesthetic relationship between the nose and other features. It may also improve a patient’s nasal airway (breathing) if underlying structural abnormalities are present and appropriate internal nasal procedures are undertaken.
Common Rhinoplasty Types and Techniques
Patients may be seeking improvements in nasal profile, for example hump removal. Nasal tip refinement is often requested, to improve a boxy or bulbous nasal tip. Some patients desire nasal width alteration, whilst others request correction of asymmetry or deviation. During your consultation, we will share before and after photos of other patients whom have had similar procedures. We also use photo morphing technology to show patients how they will appear after their nose surgery.
How Visible Will My Scars Be?
When performing nose surgery, Mr. Banwell favours an open rhinoplasty technique. This technique minimizes scarring and hides the incision across the columella. After a few weeks, the scar is typically barely visible.
How Long Will It Take to Recover?
After your nose surgery, you will be required to wear a nasal splint for the first week and can expect swelling around the eyes for up to two weeks. After two weeks, you will be able to return to work and resume non-strenuous activities. Exercise should be avoided for three to six weeks after your rhinoplasty procedure.
