A rhinoplasty procedure reshapes, corrects or reconstructs the nose to achieve more aesthetically pleasing proportions and to enhance ones' physical appearance.
The nose develops its final shape only after puberty and this development is complete by the age of 16. This determines the earliest age at which one can reasonably carry out a rhinoplasty.
Whilst this is most commonly carried out for aesthetic reasons, a nose job can also be performed as a procedure to improve function by correcting breathing issues and help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea and snoring. In these cases, one is likely to also be operating on the septum or turbinate which are blocking the airway, otherwise known as a septoplasty or submucosal resection ('SM Resection').Get in touch
There is also the large group of patients who have suffered injuries to the nose, very often a nasal fracture, playing sport or as a result of physical assault. These are the few patients that medical insurance companies may accept for reimbursement.
Whatever the motivation, our surgical approach is designed to work with a patient's natural features, sculpting the nose to harmonise the face and give a natural-looking result. This requires a delicate balance between the size, shape, contours and definition of the nasal bridge and tip. Nose reshaping requires skill and surgical finesse as millimetres make the difference between a natural-looking result and one that has obvious trademarks of surgery.
A Rhinoplasty, or a 'nose job', is one of the five most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK, accounting for roughly 10% of all cosmetic procedures in 2019 alone.
As the central feature of the face, the size and shape of the nose is a key determining factor in how we feel about our overall appearance and attractiveness. If, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with it, a rhinoplasty procedure is the most effective solution to change it.
Our surgeons are leading experts in their field, and via a rhinoplasty procedure, can make your nose smaller, more prominent, slimmer, or wider, or simply smooth away unwanted lumps or bumps.

For many people, both male and female, the size and shape of their nose can cause unhappiness and insecurity. A rhinoplasty, or nose job, can help improve the way we feel about our looks, and increase self confidence and overall levels of happiness.
It can also help improve an array of medical issues, such as correct breathing issues or alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea. Whether for cosmetic or medical reasons, a nose job is the most effective and immediate corrective procedure in such instances.
The benefits of rhinoplasty are numerous and wide-ranging. Some of these benefits can be achieved through closed rhinoplasty, but others can only be gained through an open rhinoplasty procedure. Your surgeon will be able to advise which technique will be best in order to help you achieve your goals.
Increase or decrease the size of the nose
Rhinoplasty can reduce the length and width of the nose. The septum, which acts as a divider between the nostrils, can be adjusted and reduced to reduce the overall length of the nose. This can be coupled with the adjustment or removal of cartilage at the tip of the nose. The bone can be broken and repositioned to reduce the width of the nose.
Sometimes patients are seeking an increase in the size of their nose. This can be achieved by taking bone or cartilage from the septum or another part of the body, such as the rib or ear, and using it to increase the bridge or tip of the nose.
Give the nostrils a new shape
Rhinoplasty can be used to reshape the nostrils, including reducing the size of large, prominent nostrils. Enlarged nostrils can make a nose look bigger, even if it is in proportion with the rest of the face. Nostril reduction can also help restore symmetry to the nose while giving it a more refined appearance.
Reduce the nasal tip
By removing or reshaping the cartilage at the end of the nose, a rhinoplasty surgeon can tackle problems like a bulbous nose tip. This can be done through closed or open rhinoplasty. A drooping nasal tip can also be treated with nasal tip surgery.
Reduce the bridge
This a popular request from people seeking rhinoplasty treatment. To tackle this particular issue, the surgeon removes the bone and cartilage that is causing the ‘hump’. The nose may then be broken so the remaining pieces of bone can be moved closer together to narrow the nose.
Enhance the balance and harmony between other facial features
An oversized nose which dominates the face can really throw off the balance of the other facial features. Rhinoplasty can bring this delicate balance to the face. A severely crooked nose can also cause an imbalance in the facial features.
Have a positive effect on your overall facial aesthetic
Changing the size, shape or appearance of the nose will help the overall facial aesthetic. This may mean drawing people’s attention away from the nose area, instead pulling their focus to other areas of the face.
Correct problems associated with a deviated septum
A septum which has deviated from its natural position can cause breathing problems and be prone to frequent nasal infections. Trauma or injury sustained through contact sports, such as rugby or boxing, are common causes behind a deviated septum.
Functional rhinoplasty will see the nose reshaped to improve airflow and drainage. Breathing problems can interfere with sleep and cause a condition called obstructive sleep apnea. A naturally crooked nose, or one which has been damaged by trauma or sporting injury, can lead to breathing problems. Sometimes the NHS will fund rhinoplasty if it is required to alleviate breathing problems.
Improving confidence and self esteem
The nose is the central part of the face and is often the first feature people notice. If you are unhappy with the size, shape or appearance of your nose, this can have a real impact on your confidence and self-esteem. A nose job will help to provide a massive boost in confidence and self-esteem, resulting in an overall improvement in mental health.

The nose is supported by a skeleton. In the upper third, it is a bony skeleton and the lower two-thirds are nostrils, flexible cartilage of the same type as we have in the ear. Dividing the two airways running back from the nostrils, we have another sheet of cartilage, covered with mucosa, called the septum. This is a strut which stops the cartilaginous part of the nose from collapsing.
Most operations on a Caucasian nose involve a reduction in size and therefore both the bony and cartilaginous skeleton are reduced, allowing the skin to retract, often without trace of a scar.
An incision is made across the columella (the skin of the central strut of the nose separating the two nostrils. The incision is carried up and around the rim of the nostrils, allowing the skin on the nose to be peeled back. The surgeon then has a direct view of the cartilage, which they can then refashion. This technique is used for the very complicated, difficult and injured nose but is also used exclusively by some surgeons.
The closed rhinoplasty does not have an incision across the skin of the columella between the nostrils, but is carried out through the mucosa of the inside of the nose. The surgeon does not have the direct view of the nasal skeleton and therefore it is a technique for the more experienced surgeon.
A septo-rhinoplasty is commonly done to improve the way you breathe through your nose. This is often done for patients who suffer from a deviated septum. The septum is the cartilage and bone inside your nose that divides the nostrils.
Your surgeon will make an incision in the mucosa (the lining inside your nose), and lift it off the bone and cartilage in order to remove any parts that are bent, putting them into a straight position allowing for clear breathing. This procedure will improve the way you breathe, and the appearance of your nose can be adjusted as well.
Rhino-tip surgery is done to change the shape of the nose by modifying the structure of the underlying cartilage. Most alterations are done from inside the nose so as to minimize any scarring. Your surgeon can create the perfect tip for your nose structure.
Some common cases that patients come in for are:
The oriental and african nose augmentation
Many patients have noses which are flatter with wider nostrils. In these cases, it is not a question of reducing the skeletal support, but adding to it. The bridge line can be raised by adding a manmade substance or the patient's own bone and cartilage taken from the ear, skull or rib. In each case, the extra tissue is carved to the required shape. Nostrils and nostril floor can be reduced in width by removing a wedge of tissue. The oriental may on occasions need surgery of the upper eyelid, and particularly the inner end where there is often web.
Non-Surgical Or Medical Rhinoplasty
The founder of the Cadogan Clinic, world-renowned plastic surgeon Mr Bryan Mayou, introduced the non-surgical rhinoplasty 30 years ago. In this non-surgical procedure, fillers are injected to alter and shape a person's nose.
Today non-surgical rhinoplasty is a medium-term solution as the filler used - hyaluronic acid – commonly lasts a year, and is therefore not permanent. Some patients prefer to start down the non-surgical route first in order to see the likely result of a long term surgical rhinoplasty, before making the commitment. Others opt for a top-up every year.
Rhinoplasty, also commonly known as a nose job, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure with both men and women. In fact, according to the latest figures from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty was the most performed aesthetic surgery on men in the UK in 2020.
But although the various nose job techniques can be performed on both men and women, there are important differences between the two sexes. There are distinct anatomical differences and men and women also have very different goals for their rhinoplasty surgery.
People opt to undergo rhinoplasty for a variety of reasons, including to alleviate breathing issues, to address facial asymmetry or to generally improve the overall appearance of their face, therefore boosting confidence and self-esteem. Common cosmetic issues include a drooping nasal tip, dorsal hump, bulbous nose tip, a deviated septum, a nose that is off centre or a nose that is too narrow or wide. But there are important differences between male vs female rhinoplasty and what the male and female patient hopes to achieve with surgery.
As a rule of thumb, rhinoplasty for men involves making the nasal structure more prominent, giving the nose a straight angle with strong definition. This results in a more distinguished and chiseled appearance. Male rhinoplasty is also used to correct a nose which has been left with lumps and bumps or a crooked appearance following trauma or a sporting injury.
In contrast, women opt for a softer, more subtle, change in their nose. Female rhinoplasty tends to involve a slightly upturned nasal tip and a minor dorsal hump (bone or cartilage on the bridge of the nose). Of course our expert surgeons can also apply these characteristics to the male nose if that is what is desired. But generally men are less likely to be looking for a nose which is too slender or narrow with a pinched nasal tip.
The beauty of rhinoplasty is that the surgery can be carefully tailored to each individual patient in order to meet their requirements.
The anatomy of the male and female nose are strikingly different. The key differences are that typically men have longer noses than women, with a thicker layer of skin.
This thick layer of skin is one of the main contributing factors to a bulbous nose tip, which presents as a large mass or swelling on the lower half of a person’s nose. This condition is far more common in men than women, particularly those aged between 50 and 70 years old.
The rise of Zoom calls and Instagram selfies have led men to become more critical of their facial appearance. A nose job can not only help to improve the appearance and function of the nose, but it can also improve the appearance of other facial features, by bringing the nose into proportion with the rest of the face. Male rhinoplasty can help to restore a man’s confidence and self-esteem, resulting in an overall improvement in mental health.
Male rhinoplasty can often be combined with other cosmetic surgery procedures, such as a chin augmentation with implant, to further enhance the masculine characteristics of the male face.
We offer five different types of rhinoplasty here at the Cadogan Clinic. Four surgical procedures - closed rhinoplasty, open rhinoplasty, septo-rhinoplasty and rhino-tip surgery - plus the quick, temporary non-surgical rhinoplasty.

Below you will find some key information to help you prepare for surgery and make necessary arrangements to ensure you have the support you need and that everything runs smoothly on the day.
The first step for all of our patients is to meet with the surgeon we feel is best placed to perform your procedure for a consultation.
At the consultation, you will be able to discuss with your surgeon what your hope to achieve from the procedure, as well as discuss in detail what may or may not be possible given the existing structure of your nose. Dependent on which consultant you see, a visualisation of what outcome you can expect will be made via Crysalix 4D imaging technology used at the Clinic to help you visualise this.
After that, several key measurements will be made of your nose, and standard clinical photography will be taken.
Finally, a comprehensive discussion regarding risks and complications will take place, alongside a discussion regarding the post-procedure and recovery phase. Your previous medical history will also be recorded (including previous surgery, medications, allergies etc.) and an assessment of your fitness for surgery.
If your surgeon feels you are a good candidate for surgery, you are then invited to consider whether you would like to proceed for surgery or otherwise following a two-week 'cooling-off' period.
Within this period you are welcome to come in and discuss your potential surgery with your surgeon as many times as you like.
You should expect your consultation to last a full hour, and you should factor coming in at least twice – the second time free of charge – to ensure that both you and your consultant are aligned on your expectations.
Some questions your consultant may ask you include:
Some questions you may ask your consultant include:
02.Leading up to procedure
If you choose to proceed with surgery, the next time you come into the Clinic after your final consultation will be the day of your procedure.
Before admission the following behavioural changes are recommended / required:
03.On the day
On the day of your rhinoplasty procedure we ask that you arrive for your admission an hour before the agreed start time of surgery. At this point a nurse will come and record blood pressure and other relevant vitals, you will meet with your anaesthetist and your surgeon who will make the final mark-ups.
Rhinoplasty itself is straightforward and takes place under general anaesthetic over the course of between one and three hours. A Rhinoplasty can be 'open' or 'closed', dependent on where the incision is placed. Your surgeon will choose an incision site that minimises this scale and visibility of this site.
Following the procedure, you will recover in our ambulatory recovery rooms for between two to three hours. Once our specialist nursing team are happy that your initial recovery is complete and you are safe to return home, you will be allowed to leave the Clinic accompanied by a friend or member of your family.
Once home you will have access to our dedicated oncall nursing team 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This team of specialists are dedicated to your comfort and pain control, and are there to field any questions you may have in the immediate post operative phase.
A Rhinoplasty is one of the least painful procedures, although it is completely normal to feel that your nose is blocked up due to the swelling that you will experience following the procedure. This should subside after 7 – 10 days, after which you should expect some residual bruising. We advise total rest for several days after treatment, and recommend at least 2 weeks off work to allow adequately for this process. We also recommend avoiding UV light for 2 -4 weeks to aid the scarring process.
We ask that you come in and see our nursing team 1 week after surgery to ensure your incision sites have been properly reviewed. At this juncture we also recommend you meet with one of our on site aestheticians to discuss ongoing treatment to support the healing and scarring process.
You should see your results clearly at the 6 week mark, although on occasion it can take a little longer. We ask that you come in to see your surgeon after 6 weeks for a post procedure for a final check up.

What is rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is nose surgery designed to address aesthetic and functional issues relating to the variety of different nose shapes.
Nose shapes vary between individuals. Different nose shapes addressed by nose surgery include:
The nose is the central feature of the face and can define the overall balance of the appearance. Nose surgery is able to address a variety of concerns via the technique’s nose contouring and nose reduction properties.
What are the different types of nose surgery?
There are five types of nose operation that we offer at the Cadogan Clinic.
Closed Rhinoplasty - the most common type of nose operation. There are no external scars, as all incisions are done inside the nose. The soft tissues are lifted slightly upward, allowing access to the bone and cartilage. Closed rhinoplasty involves reduced nasal tissue irritation, less detectable scarring, shorter operating times and faster recovery.
Open Rhinoplasty - a more invasive nose operation widely used for patients who need more extensive nose contouring or nose reduction Your surgeon will make incisions in the columella, which is the skin between your nostrils beneath your nose. Following the incisions, the skin is lifted up allowing access inside the nasal cavity for your surgeon to perform reshaping. After the surgery is complete, the columella is sutured and the nose will be secured in place with tape and a splint to keep the nose in place. The splint will keep the nose in place during the healing process and normally will be removed after one week. Open rhinoplasty is excellent for patients with issues such as genetic or structural deformities, trauma to the nose requiring grafting and unsatisfactory results from a previous nose job.
Septo-Rhinoplasty – a septo-rhinoplasty is commonly done to improve the way you breathe through your nose. This is often done for patients who suffer from a deviated septum. The septum is the cartilage and bone inside your nose that divides the nostrils. Your surgeon will make an incision in the mucosa (the lining inside your nose), and lift it off the bone and cartilage in order to remove any parts that are bent, putting them into a straight position allowing for clear breathing. This procedure will improve the way you breathe, and the appearance of your nose can be adjusted as well.
Rhino-tip Surgery - Rhino-tip surgery is done to change the shape of the nose by modifying the structure of the underlying cartilage. Most alterations are done from inside the nose so as to minimize any scarring. Your surgeon can create the perfect tip for your nose structure. Typical conditions include a big or crooked nose tip, flared nostrils or a hooked tip.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty - another very common form of rhinoplasty. It is non-surgical and non-invasive and involves an injectable filler being used to correct very minor imperfections. This is a popular choice for clients who need minimal changes to the shape of their nose. Keep in mind that over time the filler will begin to dissolve and you may need further treatments.
Is non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job) painful?
There is the pain of one or several very small needle pricks and that is about it. It is, after all, simply just another filler injection, using the same filler type and needle. There is no need for anaesthesia and there is no pain afterwards.
It is of interest to point out that a surgical Rhinoplasty is also virtually pain-free after surgery.
Do not be put off by pain. If you are uncertain about whether you will like the outcome, then the medical or non-surgical procedure could be a good choice for you.
It is important, nevertheless, that your surgeon is experienced and knows the anatomy, as there are risks particularly of skin loss or embolism with the apparently simpler non-surgical procedure.
Non-surgical Rhinoplasty is a temporary procedure. You will need to schedule maintenance appointments to maintain your new look. The benefit of this is that you can make adjustments over time. Perhaps your desired look changes or it takes several sessions to dial in on exactly what you want to see.
To see if a non-surgical rhinoplasty is best for you, book a consultation with our team at the Cadogan Clinic so we can help determine your goals and recommend the best treatment.
What does rhinoplasty involve?
Rhinoplasty is carried out with the patient only just asleep under total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA), and depending on your requirements, the surgeon may do any of the following:
Nose reduction - make the nose smaller by removing some cartilage and bone. This often involves rasping down the bridge of the nose and fracturing the nasal bones, where they join the face. The skin of the nostrils does not shrink to the same extent as the rest of the nose and there may be a necessity for reducing the base of the nostrils or the floor of the nose, by removing a wedge of tissue.
Nose reshaping - changing the shape of the nose by rearranging or adding to the cartilaginous and bony skeleton.
Nose proportions - changing the angle between the nose and top lip.
How much does a rhinoplasty cost?
A rhinoplasty procedure starts from £6,900 at the Cadogan Clinic.
All costs quoted online are guide prices only, and subject to confirmation following your in person consultation. Given inevitable variations in facial anatomy between patients, nose job costs are also highly dependent on the complexity of the procedure required, and the technique employed.
Procedures in the UK are not subject to VAT as they are medical procedures.
How should I prepare for a rhinoplasty / nose job surgery?
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 food for 6 hours and water for 2 hours prior to your operation. You may choose to take Arnica tablets to reduce any bruising following your nose surgery. If you have any other questions or concerns then you will be able to address them during your consultation.
Is nose surgery painful?
Contrary to popular expectation, Rhinoplasty involves virtually no pain following surgery. Whilst there may be some level of discomfort immediately following your procedure (and likely some symptoms such as a blocked nose etc.), pain levels will be modest.
What can I expect on the day of my nose surgery?
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. You will also have another chat with the surgeon, as this is the final point when the surgeon needs to know exactly what you require. 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. A 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 and they are likely to give you some spare gauze to keep under the nostrils to catch any drips.
What risks are associated with nose surgery?
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. Any specific risks will be discussed by your surgeon who will explain the nose surgery process in detail and answer your specific concerns.
Some possible risks can include:
The best way to avoid risks with surgery is to follow the proper aftercare instructions given to you by your surgeon. Many of these risks are rare.
As always with cosmetic surgery, it is essential that the surgeon, not only understands exactly what you are looking for, and can deliver it, but psychologically it is necessary to be as certain as one can be that this desired result actually satisfies the patient.
What is the downtime after nose surgery?
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. There is no reason however, why you should not be working from home. There may be some bleeding from the nostrils overnight or for longer if the septum or turbinate's have required treatment. You are likely to have some swelling and bruising below the eyes, if the nasal bones have been fractured. 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.
How long does it take to recover from nose surgery?
There are two parts to this answer. How long does it take to resume full normal activities and how long does it take for the nose to reach its final state? There is a huge time difference between the two. There is also individual variation.
Patients are usually surprised that the operation is virtually painless. We use Total IntraVenous Anaesthesia (TIVA) and therefore you wake up quickly from the operation and will not feel sick. You will be ready to go home within an hour or two. Expect some bleeding from the nostrils and you will find a gauze dressing strapped under the nose. This will be changed as necessary by the nurse whilst you are in the hospital and by yourself at home.
The bleeding usually stops by the next morning and be replaced by a clear ooze which tends to coagulate around the nostrils and internal sutures. Just keep this clear on the outside with tap water. The inside is unimportant. The nurse will deal with this when you come back at a week. The internal sutures dissolve on their own, but she will remove any skin sutures at the same time.
There is often bruising around the eyes. It is not painful. It appears quickly after surgery but settles equally quickly. The last remnants under the eyes go by 10 days.
Most patients, where the bones are fractured, will have a plastic or plaster of Paris splint over the nose, which is removed in 7 to 10 days. This is the moment of revelation. However, the nose is not how it will finally end up. It will be swollen and without definition. The tip, in particular, may at this stage appear unchanged. The actual final shape will take 6 to 12 months to settle. You will get some idea when this is, when the skin feels normal and all stiffness has gone. You need to be patient.
You are not ill after surgery, just a little bruised with a splint. You should not exercise for a couple of weeks, but you can do most other things if you don’t mind people seeing you. It is the same splint for a broken nose, and this would be the obvious white lie to explain it.
Where can I see before and after nose job photos?
You can view before and after nose job images in our Before and After Nose Job Gallery on this page.
At your consultation, your consultant will also share more extensive examples of rhinoplasty before and after results they have achieved.
We feel strongly that you can best understand what might be possible for you and your nose by reviewing the results of previous nose contouring and nose reduction operations.
Can you get a nose job on the NHS?
It is very rare to be able to get your nose job on the NHS as it is considered a cosmetic surgery. It may occasionally be possible to get your rhinoplasty on the NHS if it is ascertained that the surgery is for medical reasons, but this is very rare.
How to choose the best rhinoplasty surgeon
Before you decide to go ahead with your rhinoplasty, it is important that you choose a surgeon who is experienced and qualified to carry out this particular type of surgery. A good surgeon should be able to explain the procedure in great depth, as well as the recovery period and any potential risks or complications. They will also be honest about potential outcomes and help you to manage your expectations.
You should check that the surgeon is a specialist in rhinoplasty. When you have your initial consultation, make sure the surgeon has an extensive portfolio of rhinoplasty before and after photographs that they can share with you so you can get a good idea of how the results of your surgery will look. Be sure to check out testimonials from previous patients.
A good rhinoplasty surgeon will strive for the most natural-looking results possible and will always put the patient’s mental and physical wellbeing ahead of everything else. If you are not physically and psychologically fit and healthy, an ethical surgeon will not attempt to perform the procedure.
And finally, you should always check that your rhinoplasty surgeon is on the General Medical Council (GMC) register for otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), plastic surgery or maxillofacial surgery. This means you can be sure you are seeing a surgeon who really is an expert in their field.
