Rhinoplasty at Fitzwilliam Hospital
Rhinoplasty is better known as a nose job or nose reshaping. It can reshape the bridge, tip or profile of your nose and/or alter the size of your nose. The aim is to create a nose that is better proportioned and harmonious with your face that you are content with.
Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery in both men and women, as your nose is a central and prominent feature on your face. If you’re not happy with your nose it can affect your self-confidence.
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anaesthetic and typically takes around two to three hours. A reduction rhinoplasty makes your nose smaller by removing or adapting your cartilage and nasal bone. If you wish to make your nose larger, your cosmetic surgeon will perform an augmentation rhinoplasty by reshaping your current bone or cartilage or using a graft of bone or cartilage.
