Rhinoplasty – or Nose Cosmetic Surgery – refers to a group of surgical procedures that change the size, shape and position of the nose and effectively improve its aesthetic appearance
The nose is the central feature of the face and how it looks can determine how we feel about our overall appearance. Rhinoplasty refers to a group of surgical procedures that change the size, shape and position of the nose to provide an effective solution for the many people who are unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of their nose. It is also commonly performed as a medical procedure to correct breathing issues and to help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea, and is consequently one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed across the world.
Our surgeons can make your nose smaller, more prominent, slimmer, wider or smooth away unwanted lumps or bumps to help you to feel more confident in your appearance.
Whatever your personal requirements, Rhinoplasty at the Cadogan Clinic offers the leading UK consultants and techniques for your treatment at our state-of-the-art, purpose-built, central London facility.
Why Choose Us?
What Our Patients Say
"I would like to put pen to paper, to thank you for the outcome of my nose operation. It has made a huge difference to my life. Prior to July, I was extremely conscious of my nose and I had let this affect my behaviour, in countless ways in everyday life, for many years. Now I do not have to. I recently joined a rowing club in Putney, I am quite happy to train in the gym down there with no make up on those days – well maybe just a dash of mascara…! I am not sure that I would have had the confidence to join the Club at all, previously. I felt confident and comfortable about the procedure from my first consultation at the practice and have always found Margaret to be very reassuring and helpful. Many thanks for your expertise and kindness".
"Thank you for helping me with my nose. I feel a lot better about myself now, and am able to wear my hair different! Thank you for listening, you are truly an artist whereas revision Rhinoplasty is concerned".
"Thank you so much for being an amazing and "patient" surgeon. I feel the best I have looked in years, and I love my new nose! Everyone thinks I look "well" and "younger", rather than knowing I've had something done. I'm so happy with the results and feel pretty and beautiful. Thank you so much".

At your initial Rhinoplasty consultation, your surgeon will go through any pre-operative advice with you which will include eating well, quitting smoking, avoiding alcohol and avoiding aspirin and blood-thinning medication. You will be nil by mouth for 8 hours prior to your operation which means no eating or drinking. You may chose to take arnica tablets to reduce any bruising following your nose operation.
We usually recommend our Rhinoplasty patients to take at least one week off work as you may be wearing a splint for up to ten days. You are likely to have swelling and bruising in the area, especially around the eyes- though this is completely normal and will subside within ten days. We also tell patients they should avoid strenuous exercise for at least two weeks following the operation.
Once you arrive at the clinic for your nose reshaping surgery, you will be taken downstairs by our friendly nurses to be prepped for surgery and meet the anaesthetist. Once you have had your operation, you will recuperate in our recovery room and when you have eaten a few hours later and you are ready, your surgeon will discharge you with some post-operative advice and your friend or relative is able to collect you and take you home.
Before leaving the clinic our nursing staff will ensure you have everything you need including a post-operative appointment time.
There is usually only minimal, if any, pain following nose augmentation surgery although you may experience tightness and pressure due to the swelling that occurs following the procedure. Your surgeon will be able to provide you pain relief if required.
Rhinoplasty surgery at Cadogan Cosmetics starts from around £4000 but this will depend on your particular case and following an initial consultation with your surgeon you will be given a costing.
We usually recommend our nose surgery patients to take at least one week off work as you may be wearing a splint for up to ten days. You are likely to have swelling and bruising in the area, especially around the eyes- though this is completely normal and will subside within ten days. It may be that you also have a sore throat following your nose procedure but this will also soon subside. The internal swelling of the nose may take a few months to completely go down for you to see the true result.
Rhinoplasty is carried out regularly as Cadogan Cosmetics, and any risks associated with nose reshaping are the same as with any other surgical procedure that involves a general anaesthetic. There are no specific risks to be concerned about, but your surgeon will explain the nose surgery procedure to you in detail.
Rhinoplasty is carried out under general anaesthetic and depending on the individual can take anywhere between one to two hours. During your nose surgery your expert surgeon will make incisions inside your nose to adjust the bone, or the cartilage in the tip of the nose to reshape it depending on your particular case. The surgeon will ensure incisions are as invisible as possible.
At Cadogan Cosmetics this procedure is carried out as a day case so you are able to return home on the same day when collected by a friend or relative.
More commonly known as a ‘nose job’, Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures worldwide. Your nose is one of the first things a stranger will notice about your face, so if you are unhappy with the size or shape of it, or feel as though it is crooked then you could benefit from nose surgery. Some individuals chose to undergo Rhinoplasty, rhino-tip surgery or septo-rhinoplasty (correction of a deviated septum) for medical reasons to improve breathing difficulties.
At Cadogan Cosmetics we have some of the best nose surgeons in the UK, who carry out this procedure regularly
We use a variant of the general anaesthesia technique called TIVA (Total Intravenous Anaesthesia) that is delivered by our team of top anaesthetists. Intravenous delivery enables our anaesthetist team to monitor anaesthetic depth more closely via specialized computers to maintain an optimal level of anaesthesia. This means you will wake up feeling much better than with traditional alternatives and ready to go home shortly after.
