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

Frequently Asked Questions

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 not be allowed any food or water 8 hours prior to your operation. You may choose 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 will 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 the ten days. We also tell patients to 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 Clinic starts from around £6500, however this will depend on your particular case. This can only be determined during a consultation with your surgeon, and following that an accurate price can be quoted.

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 one of our most popular treatments at Cadogan Clinic, 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 and answer any specific concerns you may have.

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 choose to undergo rhinoplasty, rhino-tip surgery or septo-rhinoplasty (correction of a deviated septum) for medical reasons to improve breathing difficulties.
