Nose surgery

Nose surgery, also called rhinoplasty or simply a ‘nose job’, is a surgical way of changing the size or shape of your nose. It is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries for both cosmetic and medical reasons.

"Dr Lahoud did an amazing job, I'm so happy with the results! Highly recommend Transform to anyone who is considering the surgery"*

*Results and benefits vary from patient to patient

Some people think that certain features of their nose don’t align with the rest of their facial features. In these cases, they look to alter the length of the nose, reshape the tip or the bridge of their nose, or even alter the width of the nostrils. In other situations, people opt for nose surgery following an injury or as a result of functional breathing problems.

Our team of highly experienced surgeons have guided thousands of customers on various journeys including both cosmetic and reconstructive nose surgery. We are always available for a free consultation, so please get in touch to discuss your options with one of our specialists.

Nose surgery frequently asked questions

If you are considering rhinoplasty, there are certainly questions on your mind: from the cost to recovery times, and what the procedure involves. We’ve answered some of the commonly asked questions around nose jobs below, but if you can’t find the answer you are looking for, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help.

Nose surgery FAQs

There are several 'nose job' procedures, which tackle different concerns. Reduction rhinoplasty makes the nose smaller, septorhinoplasty alters the external appearance and the internal septum, and rhinotip alters the tip of the nose and nostrils. Your surgeon will discuss the right surgery method for you and the results you can realistically expect.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we know that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around you. This means that the cost of a ‘nose job’ can vary. Following our consultation process you will have a detailed pricing overview, as well as plenty of information regarding our flexible credit options.

The actual rhinoplasty surgery usually takes around two hours under general anaesthetic. However, you will likely require an overnight stay in hospital following the procedure, and so you should allow for a full 24 hours for the whole process.

Recovery from nose surgery varies from person to person. Any incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, which will disappear on their own after a week or so. It will be at least two weeks before the bruising fades, and several months before your nose settles into its new shape following surgery. Before you leave hospital we’ll advise you on what to do – and not do – to ensure you recover quickly. You’ll also have several post-op appointments to ensure you’re healing well and are pleased with the results.

After your nose surgery you may need to stay overnight in one of our hospitals. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

As it takes up to two weeks for the bruising and swelling to go down after your nose surgery, many of our customers choose to book between a week and a fortnight off work. However, this will depend on the physical demands of your job and your patient advisor can discuss this in more detail.

Nose surgery is suitable for most people, but we’ll take a full medical history and complete a pre-op screening to make sure you’re physically fit enough before we go ahead with your surgery.

Yes, it can. Your Transform surgeon will talk to you about your symptoms and examine you so that they can advise on how they can help.

Most rhinoplasty incisions are made inside the nostrils, so you won’t be able to see any scars. However, for some procedures your surgeon may make an incision in the skin between your nostrils, which is called ‘open rhinoplasty’. You may also require small incisions to be made at either side of your nostrils, which will leave very fine scars. Your surgeon will fully explain the type of surgery you’ll be having and outline any expected scarring so you’ll know what to expect.

As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached to rhinoplasty, such as bruising or infection. Our adviser will fully explain these to you so you can feel as confident and reassured as possible before going ahead with the procedure.

More details on nose surgery

When you come to Transform, it’s all about you. We’ll listen carefully to your aspirations for being the best you, and you’ll receive all the advice and support you need throughout your journey with us. Here’s a step-by-step guide to what you can expect.

Step by step guide

The first step is to meet your patient advisor. You’ll be able to talk to them about why you’re considering nose surgery, the likely costs and finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your nose surgery – from the different procedures to the benefits and risks –with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you have. There are several nose alteration procedures, which tackle different concerns. Reduction rhinoplasty makes the nose smaller, septorhinoplasty alters the external appearance and the internal septum, and rhinotip alters the tip of the nose and nostrils. Your surgeon will discuss the right surgery method for you and the results you can realistically expect. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

In most cases, nose surgery takes around two hours under general anaesthetic, which means you may need to stay overnight in one of our hospitals. On the day of your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. You’ll then be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre. During the procedure, your surgeon will make incisions in your nose. These are usually made inside the nose, so you won’t be able to see any scars, but for some procedures an incision in the skin between your nostrils may be made, or at either side of your nostrils, which will leave very fine scars. Any incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, which will disappear after a week or so.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Your surgeon will check that you’re properly recovered from the operation before discharging you. At this stage, you’ll feel very sore from your operation and won’t be able to drive, so you’ll need to make sure that you’ve made arrangements to get home. Your nose is likely to be bruised and swollen and you may also have bruising around the eyes. We’ll provide pain relief to help with any discomfort. You may have dressings inside each nostril at first, which will prevent you from breathing through your nose. We’ll take these out before you go home. You might also have a splint over your nose to help support it, which you’ll need to keep in place for around a week.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. Before you leave hospital your nurse will give you some advice on caring for your nose and arrange your post-op appointment at the clinic for around a week later. This is when we’ll remove your splint if you have one. You’ll also see your surgeon for a review appointment around six weeks after your surgery to check on your progress and arrange any further aftercare you might need. Recovery varies from patient to patient, but it will be at least two weeks before the bruising begins to fade and several months before your nose settles into its new shape, so please don’t be alarmed by your immediate post-op appearance. Many of our patients decide to book some time off work during this period. If you have any questions or concerns at all, then just contact our 24/7 helpline. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover to up to 10 years.
