The aesthetic of the nose is viewed differently by people. Objectively unsightly criteria are crooked ridges of the nose, wide nostrils but also bulging nose-tips or nose-tips that hang down. The correction of the nose is one of the most demanding operations in aesthetic surgery and should only be done by an experienced plastic surgeon. The aim of the rhinoplasty operation is to produce a natural, aesthetically pleasing nose in proportion with the face. It is rarely possible or appropriate to shape a 'replica of an idealised celebrity nose'. Together with you, in detailed consultations, we would like to find the form of nose most suitable for you.
The correction is made under local anaesthetic or under general anaesthetic, depending on the complexity, through a cut within the nose or, if necessary, via the columella (open rhinoplasty). If you should request an alteration to the skeletal structure of the nose a splint will be necessary for the nose after the operation.
