Can you get a nose job on the NHS?

A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is not usually available on the NHS if done for cosmetic reasons. However, the procedure may be provided on the NHS if it's needed to help you breathe.

Will the NHS pay for my nose job?

Rhinoplasty (nose job) is not routinely funded by the NHS if the surgery is only being carried out for cosmetic reasons.

However, this treatment may be funded if the patient has medical problems caused by obstruction of the nasal airway, which is defined as a medical problem that continually impairs sleep and/or breathing.  Funding may also be made available if corrective nasal surgery is required because of a complex condition from birth, for example, cleft lip and palate.

The decision whether to grant funding for a nose job is down to the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which covers a person’s local hospital.

The clinician in charge of the care of the patient’s specific condition, usually a hospital doctor, can assist them with the funding application, if there is exceptional clinical need for the treatment to be funded. The patient’s clinician must provide evidence of clinical exceptionality when applying to the local CCG for funding.

Will NHS waiting times be impacted by COVID for this type of procedure?

Unfortunately, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on NHS waiting times across the board.

Elective procedures, such as medically-necessary rhinoplasty, have been cancelled in order to divert staff to help with the Covid-19 crisis. The virus has also had an impact on staff sickness.

As a result, NHS waiting times have got longer for many various procedures. Waiting times vary from one hospital trust to another.

Am I better off going privately for my nose job?

If you require a nose job for medical reasons, you could apply for funding from the NHS and join the waiting list for surgery. However with funding far from guaranteed and NHS waiting lists being adversely impacted by the ongoing pandemic, then it may be wise to go private for your nose job.

If you require a nose job for aesthetic reasons, then going privately is the only option available to you.

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.
