Time to focus on you

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

You might feel that certain features of your nose don’t align with the rest of your facial features. You may look to alter the length of your nose, reshape the tip or the bridge of your nose, or perhaps alter the width of your nostrils. You may also opt for nose surgery following an injury or because of breathing problems.

Our team of highly experienced General Medical Council (GMC) registered surgeons have guided thousands of patients on their journeys for both cosmetic and reconstructive nose surgery. Each procedure is carried out in one of our specialist Care Quality Commission registered clinics, where we pride ourselves on our friendly, professional service and excellent facilities.

Enhance how you look, change how you feel

Rhinoplasty surgery can enhance the aesthetic look of your nose. You may want to have a more evenly proportioned nose shape with a profile that complements your other facial dimensions and structure; this could be a straighter or smaller nose. These cosmetic changes can help with your self-confidence in your everyday life.

Another benefit of nose surgery is that it can help to restore nasal functionality and relieve any breathing difficulties you might have.

Let’s delve into the detail

As with every surgical procedure, it’s important that you’re aware of any potential risks that nose surgery may pose, however small, so that you can weigh these up against the benefits that surgery can bring.

Your surgeon assistant and expert rhinoplasty surgeon will be happy to discuss any possible complications and give you detailed information regarding the procedure. As a guide, they may include pain, slight nose bleeds, temporarily blocked nose and an altered sense of smell.

You, reimagined

People choose nose surgery for all sorts of reasons. Only you can know what the impact is of having a nose that you feel is too big or not the right shape. If your nose is impacting your self-esteem and holding you back, then it may be time to consider this procedure.

You may decide that you are ready to have nose surgery if you:

  • Are conscious or unhappy with your nose size or shape
  • Have trouble with your breathing because of your nose
  • Would like to correct an injury or damage that has occurred to your nose
  • Snore loudly

To undergo this surgery, we’d recommend you have a healthy BMI, have no serious health conditions, have realistic goals for surgery and that you feel mentally ready for the procedure.

It’s very important to be sure about what you like and don’t like about your nose, and what you want to change. Your surgeon will be able to provide advice so that any surgery carried out on your nose looks as natural as possible.

You so deserve this

Transform were the friendliest people I could have found. I went and visited a few surgeons and a few hospital groups, but Transform seemed to have the most qualified surgeons. And they were just so lovely, so welcoming, they let me think about everything. They’re really good people.

Nose Surgery FAQs

More FAQs
How much does nose surgery cost?
As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that every patient is different, and so your treatment will be tailored specifically to you. Because of this, our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations are particularly important. Following our consultation process, your surgeon assistant will provide a detailed pricing overview so that you know how much your rhinoplasty will cost, as well as giving you plenty of information regarding our flexible credit options. We are happy to talk you through getting your nose job on finance, which means you can spread the cost over monthly repayments. Please take a look at our finance page to find out more about our rhinoplasty finance options.

It’s important to remember that although cost is, of course, an important factor in your final decision, it should be considered alongside other elements such as high levels of care and patient safety, and surgeon expertise and experience.
How much time will I need to take off work?
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’ll depend on the physical demands of your job and your surgeon assistant can discuss this in more detail.
How long does nose surgery take?
We’re often asked how long a rhinoplasty surgery takes, but there’s no simple answer; it’ll vary according to the procedure you choose to have. Typically, though, rhinoplasty surgery takes around two hours under general anaesthetic. You will probably require an overnight stay in hospital following the procedure, and so you should allow for a full 24 hours for the whole process.
How long will it take to recover after nose surgery?
Rhinoplasty recovery times vary from person to person. Any incisions will be closed with dissolvable stitches, which will disappear on their own after a week or so. It’ll 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 let you know what to do and what not to do after rhinoplasty to make sure you recover quickly. You’ll also have several post-operative appointments so we can check your nose job recovery is going well and you’re pleased with the results.
Will there be any scarring after nose surgery?
Most rhinoplasty incisions are made inside the nostrils, so you won’t be able to see any scars. However, for some types of nose jobs your surgeon may make an incision in the skin between your nostrils, which is called ‘open rhinoplasty’. You might also need small incisions on either side of your nostrils, which will leave very fine scars. Your surgeon will fully explain the type of nose surgery you’ll be having and outline any expected scarring, so you’ll know what to expect.
What is rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a ‘nose job’, is a type of cosmetic surgery that alters the appearance of the nose. Typically, rhinoplasty surgery involves adjusting or reshaping bone, cartilage and tissue to change the shape and/or size of the nose. There are many different types of nose jobs available which you can find out more about below.
What types of nose surgery are there?
There are several different types of nose jobs, each tackling different concerns. Reduction rhinoplasty, also known as nose reduction surgery, makes the nose smaller. Septorhinoplasty alters the external appearance and the internal septum, while rhinotip or nose tip surgery alters the tip of the nose and nostrils. Whether you’re thinking about having a nose job to make your nostrils smaller or considering nose straightening surgery, your surgeon will discuss the right method for you and the results you can realistically expect.
Can nose surgery help with breathing difficulties?
Yes, it can. Your rhinoplasty surgeon will talk to you about your symptoms and examine you so that they can advise on how they can help.
Can you get a nose job on finance?
Absolutely – we are pleased to offer several options for financing rhinoplasty surgery, so you can choose a payment plan that suits you. During your consultation, your advisor will talk you through the nose job price and the various finance options available.
How long will I have to stay in hospital?
After your nose surgery, you may need to stay overnight in one of our hospitals. We will discuss our recommendation with you before we book your surgery.
Am I suitable for rhinoplasty?
Nose cosmetic surgery is suitable for most people, but we will take a full medical history and complete a pre-op screening to make sure you are physically fit enough before we go ahead with your surgery.
Are there any rhinoplasty risks?
As with all surgical procedures, there are some risks attached to rhinoplasty. For instance, bruising and swelling after rhinoplasty are common. Other potential risks include infection, complications from anaesthetic and scarring. Our advisor will fully explain all rhinoplasty risks to you, so you feel as confident and reassured as possible before going ahead with the procedure.

Next steps

Behind the scenes care, to help you take centre stage

Your first appointment


The first step in your rhinoplasty journey is to talk to your surgeon assistant over the phone. 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. Whenever you decide to book a surgery date, you can secure it for a minimum refundable deposit of £500. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

Your surgical consultation


At your free nose job consultation, your rhinoplasty surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the surgery. You can discuss every aspect of the procedure, from the different types of nose jobs to the benefits of surgery and any rhinoplasty risks, with absolutely no obligation to go ahead. This surgical consultation can be carried out either over video chat or in person at your local clinic. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

There are several types of nose surgery which tackle different concerns. They include nose reshaping, nose reduction surgery, nose straightening surgery and nose tip surgery. Your surgeon will discuss the right method for you and the results you can realistically expect. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your nose surgery in one of our UK clinics, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

The surgery


Nose surgery is performed under general anaesthetic, and you’ll need to stay in one of our hospitals overnight after surgery. On the day of your procedure, you’ll meet with your surgeon so that you can go through the consent form, ask any last-minute questions, and your nose will be marked in preparation for the planned incisions. You’ll be introduced to the rest of your surgical team before going into theatre.

The procedure you undergo is dependent upon the type of surgery you’re having. For example, if your nose is being made smaller (nose reduction), then they’ll remove some of the cartilage and bone. If your nose is being made larger (nose augmentation), your surgeon will do this by taking cartilage and bone from elsewhere (for example, from your ears and hips) and use this to build up the nose (called a “graft”). Generally, the procedure involves either making a cut across the skin between the nostrils (open rhinoplasty), or tiny cuts inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty).

There are several other types of nose surgery procedures available, and you can find out more details about these during your surgical consultation.

Recovery


We’ll be here throughout the rhinoplasty recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Your surgeon will check that you’re properly recovered from the operation itself before discharging you. At this stage, you’ll feel very sore and won’t be able to drive, so you’ll need to make sure that you’ve made arrangements to get home.

Following rhinoplasty, swelling and bruising is common around your nose, and you may also have bruising around the eyes. We’ll provide pain relief to help with any discomfort during your nose job recovery. You may have dressings inside each nostril at first, which will prevent you from breathing through your nose, but we’ll take these out before you go home. You might also have a splint over your nose to help support it. Your surgeon will let you know how long this needs to be kept on for, but it is usually around a week.

Aftercare


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 advice on caring for your nose and arrange your post-op appointment at the clinic for around a week later (or as per your surgeon's instructions). This is when we’ll remove your splint and any external sutures if you have them. Not all rhinoplasty will have sutures that need to be removed. This will depend on whether your surgery used the open or closed method. You’ll also see your surgeon for a review appointment around six weeks after your surgery to check on your nose job recovery and arrange any further aftercare you might need.

Nose job recovery time 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.

Should you have any questions or concerns at all after your nose surgery, you can contact our 24/7 helpline for advice. For your peace of mind, all cosmetic surgery patients have access to our two-year aftercare programme.
