We’ve seen a huge rise in rhinoplasty enquiries and operations in 2016. Only last week we had another spike in interest after Ferne McCann publicly admitted having the procedure on ITV’s This Morning.
‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Ferne revealed her results during the show declaring how ‘truly happy’ she was with the outcome of the procedure.
‘I’m a big advocate of being comfortable in your own skin and that hasn’t changed. I believe that confidence is beautiful but I couldn’t feel truly confident until I changed the one thing about me that made me insecure.’
Ferne isn’t the only TV star to undergo surgery on such a focal feature – with fellow reality stars Charlotte Crosby, Chloe Ferry and Lauren Goodger also tweaking their noses – while others such as Holly Hagan and Marnie Simpson have opted for non surgical fillers to temporarily smooth out bumps.
We see many patients here who feel their insecurities are amplified with the development of social media and video, and consequently are more aware of how they look.
Our Blogger Stories ambassador Scarlett Dixon of Scarlett London shared her story with us earlier this year following her rhinoplasty with Transform surgeon Mr Lahoud in 2015. To read more about her story and to see her before and afters click here.
Scarlett commented, ‘To have a new found confidence has changed my life and for me, looking back it was such an easy thing to do – it was honestly the best decision I ever made’.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most life changing procedures we offer here at Transform. The majority of patients we see for this procedure often take years thinking about having it done before actually coming to see us.
Mark Norfolk, Clinical Director at Transform commented: ‘Having a rhinoplasty can be a very difficult journey for some patients. Many feel anxious in the lead up to their operation and the wait between having the op and having the splint taken off can be excruciating.
However, the results for the majority of patients we treat are overwhelmingly positive and very rarely, does anyone regret having surgery.’
