Rhinoplasty (Nose job)

Rhinoplasty (or commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’ or ‘nose reshaping’) is a procedure that restructures the nose in order to improve your aesthetic appearance.

What Is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose job surgery, is a commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure one undertakes to change the size and shape of their nose for cosmetic and functional purposes. The result of a Rhinoplasty is a more proportionate nose fitting your natural surrounding facial features.

Your nose is one of the most defining characteristics of your face and the natural centrepiece of your facial look. A change to the shape, size, symmetry, or projection of your nose can harmonize your entire facial feature. The aim of a surgical rhinoplasty is to correct deformities and create proportion and normality to the nose. As little as several millimeters in reduction and re-shaping can achieve the aesthetic goal you wish for. Patients who consider a rhinoplasty surgery can have a number of reasons, including:

  • A dislike or avoidance of having photos taken at certain profile angles. Most commonly this is the side profile but can sometimes also include the front profile.
  • Intentionally turning their face to best hide the projection of their nose when talking or sitting next to someone.
  • They like all other aspects of their facial features but feel their nose disproportionately affects them.

    We do not provide Cosmetic Financing for Rhinoplasty. When considering this cosmetic surgery, we like to ensure that your Rhinoplasty cost is transparent and clear to understand. The above cost includes your completed nose job procedure with no hidden costs.

    Types of Rhinoplasty Aims We Specialise In


    Your nasal tip sits at the end of your nose, and in some patients, one side of their tip looks different compared to the other. For example, one side may be bigger, smaller, higher, lower, or slightly twisted to one side.

    Since the shape of the tip of your nose is largely dependent upon the underlying cartilage, irregular-looking tips usually occur due to your genetics or an injury.

    Corrective surgery can be made to the underlying cartilage around the nasal tip so that both sides appear more symmetrical and proportionate.


    This procedure is known as Septorhinoplasty. Many patients notice that their nose is twisted or deviated, which is more obvious in photos or when light naturally reflects their nose.

    A crooked nose occurs due to the nasal bones and/or septum that is not centralised down the midline of your facial profile. As a result, the nose leans to one side.

    Most of the time, crooked noses are inherited, although many times, they can also occur as a result of injury or previous having undergone a previous nose reshaping surgery.

    Our Rhinoplasty surgeon will aim to reset the nasal bones and septum to a more central profile.


    An excessive nasal tip projection is a tip that appears to project too far out from the end of your nose, so much so that it looks irregular. When your tip is overly projected, it may likely hang down towards your upper lip.

    There are two ways that a nasal projection can be corrected:

    1. To reduce the Maxilla Spine of the nose, a thin bone at the base of the nose that gives the nose its projection.
    2. The second involves reducing the nasal tip cartilage to de-project the nose.

    In some cases, both techniques are performed to proportionate your nasal profile. 



    Some people feel their nose looks fine from the side but not from a front-facing profile.

    If you have a wide nose, several factors will determine the type of results you can expect from rhinoplasty surgery.

    If your nose is wide due to its underlying bone structure, then our Specialist will be able to make a reduction in the width of your nose.

    If you have thick skin around your nose, a surgeon can change your nasal shape and make it slightly thinner, but there will certainly be limitations to how narrow your nose can safely be adjusted. Thick-skinned patients in Rhinoplasty often have limitations to how much reduction they can achieve in their nose reshaping results. We often advise skin-thinning creams to use before and after surgery to reduce the thickness of nasal skin.


    Typically, this nasal deformity is corrected by septal cartilage or grafting to raise the area of depression, thereby raising the bridge’s profile. This is more common in ethnic Rhinoplasty for Afro-Caribbean and Far-East Asian patients.

    The result is a more uniform bridge. Grafts are harvested parts of cartilage that are often taken from behind one’s ear or from the ribs and used to build the nasal profile.



    Nasal Humps on the nasal bridge are generally caused by genetic over-developments.

    A nasal/dorsal hump can occur with any type and shape of the nose. But if your only problem is a nasal hump, our surgeon will shave the hump by filing down the bone on the bridge of your nose.

    Though considered a relatively straightforward cosmetic surgery, we will be concentrating on ensuring any reduction of the hump does not give the appearance of a longer nose. As this is a common mistake in surgeons less experienced in rhinoplasty surgery, recommendations may be made to reduce your nasal projection, including hump removal.

    In some instances, patients may want a very subtle curve to their nasal bridge, and we will advise this at your consultation to ensure this looks natural. 


    A large nose tip usually takes a bulbous form that makes the end of the nose look rounded or fat. Our expert surgeons will change the shape of your nose tip by altering the tip cartilage underneath the nose so that it looks less rounded by addressing all 3 sections of the tip cartilage, which are the upper, middle, and lower (Alar) sections.


    Nostril reduction, otherwise known as Alar Base Reduction Rhinoplasty, tends to be more common in Latino, Afro-Caribbean or Far-East Asian ethnicity. This type of rhinoplasty treatment can sometimes be referred to as ethnic rhinoplasty.

    Incisions are made between the inner nostril and columella (skin between your nostrils) and then brought together to shorten the width of your nostril flare. 


    Due to the growing number of patients seeking rhinoplasty surgery, Berkeley Square Medical observes many patients who have had their Rhinoplasty carried out elsewhere and have not been happy with their results. Subsequently, they have come to us for advice about revision rhinoplasty.

    The reasons for being unhappy with a previous Rhinoplasty can be:

    1. You and your previous Surgeon had different interpretations of your goals.
    2. Your previous surgeon had little experience in rhinoplasty surgery, even though the Surgeon may have been working with a renowned clinic.
    3. Your procedure was carried out abroad with little or no aftercare to monitor your results to heal correctly.
    4. Your previous surgeon has not clarified what can realistically be achieved and what is not possible with your rhinoplasty, leading to hope of a result that was never possible to achieve in the first instance.

    It is certainly not uncommon for patients to seek a revision rhinoplasty in cases where we also feel the result is an acceptable proportionate outcome. In this case, we may not advise further surgery. 

    We not only specialise in all types of Rhinoplasty, but we are experts in correctional revision Rhinoplasty in assessing your initial results and best achieving the aesthetic goal you first wished for with a second surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery is not a procedure that should be consistently repeated, and your cosmetic goals should be achieved the first time, including the risks associated with this treatment.

    If you are considering revision surgery, it is a very important decision to make with you. Your consultation will include fully discussing your goals and examining if a secondary rhinoplasty will benefit you before making any corrections. Should you be considering revision surgery, it is important that you obtain a full copy of your previous surgeon’s notes to bring to your consultation with us.

    Rhinoplasty Consultation

    Your consultation is to have a more precise idea of what you can achieve with your cosmetic Rhinoplasty surgery.

    Your facial plastic surgeon will first listen to your concerns and will like to fully understand what aspects of your nose are affecting your self-confidence. We also want to know how it is affecting you and to set realistic expectations. This leads your consultation towards the changes you wish to make before your surgeon advises the steps that can be taken with a Rhinoplasty surgery to a successful nose reshaping.

    This is a part of your journey where you can decide whether this procedure is right for you and understand the expertise of your surgeon in how he will achieve the best results for you. We aim for proportion to the nose, which ultimately means we aim for a natural final shape for you.

    The consultation with your surgeon is:

    • To fully discuss what makes you unhappy about your nose and what changes you wish to achieve with your cosmetic surgery.
    • To discuss your expectations and then consult you about what can be achieved, keeping within the boundaries of a safe and successful change.
    • Conduct an examination of the nose, including the thickness and elasticity of your nasal skin, and light reflection against your nose.
    • Explain the full procedure in detail to you and the precise surgical techniques that will be used to achieve your goal successfully.
    • If applicable, take you through before and after photos of previous patients that best relate to you and the final results other patients have achieved.
    • Discuss the risks and benefits associated with a Rhinoplasty, your medical history, and any questions you may have for your Surgeon.
    • Advise whether having a preview aim of your final result with our Rhinoplasty Imaging Service will assist you in making the best decision with your surgeon. 

    Upon your initial consultation, a second appointment with our Rhinoplasty London clinical team will follow, which will provide the confirmed procedure cost, the booking process, and information to take home to read before making an informed decision to have your procedure with us.

    We provide full details about our Surgeon’s Accreditations and Awards, more information about our London hospital, and several guide booklets that guide you through the risks and benefits of nose surgery and the terms and conditions of your treatment.

    Rhinoplasty Surgery

    The surgical techniques used in your procedure will depend largely on the goals desired by you and our Rhinoplasty surgeon. Generally, specialist surgeons prefer to perform all of the incisions inside your nose, where scarring will not be visible.

    Below are the two main different techniques of nose reshaping surgery that can be performed. Knowing these techniques will make you much better prepared when seeing your surgeon. Both techniques will have advantages and disadvantages relating to your goals, and our surgeon may talk you through these before you decide on the best technique for you.


    The closed technique is considered a very advanced cosmetic surgery method in the UK and US and is a technical approach we advise in the first instance. This involves making incisions internally within the nose and has the advantage of leaving no visible external scars. This remains our first choice in approach on all first-time rhinoplasty procedures and many revision cases we treat from other clinics.

    Closed rhinoplasty surgery can be used for some types of rhino tip surgery, removing bumps or humps, reshaping cartilage and bones, broken nose cosmetic surgery, deviated septum surgery, preservation rhinoplasty, and removing excess soft tissue.

    Ideally, you should elect to have closed rhinoplasty as your first option. This, however, may not be possible in every case, depending on the type of result that you would like to achieve.

    Closed Rhinoplasty


    Open rhinoplasty involves making an incision across the lower or mid-columella, the skin in the middle of your nose that sits between the nostrils.

    These open incisions allow a surgeon to lift the skin upwards and over your nasal tip, thereby exposing the cartilage and bone structure of your nasal cavity under the soft tissues.

    Open rhinoplasty surgery tends to be most suitable for patients undergoing complex procedures such as revision or reconstructive surgery (using cartilage grafts), where clear access to your nasal skeleton is preferred by rhinoplasty surgeons.

    You are likely to have a small scar across your columella once you have recovered from your surgery, but in most cases, this scar will fade and be barely visible.

    Nose surgery procedures are usually performed under local anaesthetic, but in some cases, total intravenous anaesthesia may be needed.

    Open Rhinoplasty

    Recovery Time & Aftercare

    We are one of very few clinics in the UK to provide direct Online Messaging Services 24 hours a day with 2 dedicated members of our rhinoplasty clinical team who are on hand to assist you during your recovery. 


    Our priority is that your rhinoplasty recovery process is as comfortable as possible. You will be provided aftercare instructions by our surgeon and nursing team once ready to discharge you from the hospital. This will include any pain medications and antibiotics (if applicable). All nasal packs are removed completely before you leave the hospital.

    We want to ensure that you can get home safely. For this reason, all rhinoplasty patients are chauffeur driven home complimentary (Within London/Greater London) as a part of our aftercare to you.


    You will feel slightly tired from the general anaesthetic medication until it wears off. You may also be generally fatigued from the experience of a long day, At this point, any swelling to the nose will be increasing together with a blocked nose. Slight breathing difficulties are expected. Bleeding may also continue slightly within the first 24 hours and padding is provided to absorb any slight discharge.


    Patients feel a lot better after the first and the second day after the nose job, with more energy and a sense of returning to normal indoor activities. Bruising and swelling reaches their maximum point within the first 72 hours and you may notice you are more swollen than when you left the hospital on the day of your cosmetic surgery.

    Pain and discomfort are generally very low and can be managed with over-the-counter medication. Most patients report that breathing from their mouth creates the most discomfort, but no pain.


    Generally, the healing process is well underway and all patients will see a significant improvement in swelling and bruising. Bruising discolouration has subsided and turned yellow in colour and swelling has noticeably reduced.


    You will return to the hospital for your first post-operative review, in which any stitches are removed together with your nasal splint. We often tell our patients to soak their nasal splint the night before their appointment to make it pain-free to remove.

    Though our surgeons use dissolvable skin sutures, we will check to make sure your incisions have healed. You will also be assessed with any leftover swelling and any advice to help improve your rhinoplasty recovery time. Any international patients are able to travel by air at this point (unless otherwise agreed to depart earlier).


    Your nose may slightly widen 24 hours after removing your nasal splint but this usually resolves back to normal within 24-48 hours. Your nose will start to take better shape and although you will still have tip swelling, you will certainly notice the change in shape and size of your nose. You can start to resume very light gym and cardio in moderation. Mostly all patients will return to work at this stage in recovery with no signs that a surgical procedure has taken place.


    Your nose will be improving in shape and size. It is advisable to monitor progress on a 6-weekly schedule instead of a daily observation. This helps patients take the attention off their nose, and gives a greater sense of calmness during the recovery.


    You will have been booked for your second post-operative appointment with our dedicated nursing team or Surgeon. This appointment is to evaluate the initial results and recovery progress, including:

    1. Taking your first set of post-operation photos
    2. Comparing your pre-surgery and initial post-surgery photos
    3. Assessing how your bones are healing and swelling reduction and where we expect to see further reduction and change.
    4. Advising any treatments that we may want to perform or advise to help with your recovery for both aesthetic and functional purposes.


    Your third post-operative appointment with be around the 6-month stage. This review is much like the 3-month review but a continuation of observing your nose which will be closer to its final result and assessing the finesse differences between your 3-month recovery photos and the new gallery of photos taken on this day.


    As a part of your aftercare, we advise all patients to book around their anniversary stage for a final assessment of the results. The full recovery after a nose reshaping surgery takes up to 12 months, but can sometimes continue with minor internal healing. This is because we include all the hidden aspects of the recovery such as internal cartilage scar healing and superficial swelling reduction.

    Rhinoplasty Digital Imaging



    We are a specialist clinic in Rhinoplasty Imaging. We use the latest software to allow you to visualise your anticipated results and communicate with our Rhinoplasty surgeon a clearer understanding of your desired goals.

    Rhinoplasty Imaging can be performed after your consultation as an additional optional service. All imaging is based on the medical notes made by your surgeon after fully discussing the aesthetic changes you wish to make.

    The cost of this Rhinoplasty Imaging is set at £150.00; this is additional to your consultation fee.

    Imaging includes 6-photo slides, a before and after slide of your Front, Angle, and Side Facing Profile, and a zoomed-in focus of the before and after of your nasal profile at all three angles.

    Examples of Rhinoplasty Digital Imaging:

    Rhinoplasty Imaging is designed to work with your facial anatomy and the unlying structure of your nose. This means that limitations are safely in place to image more accurately proportionate and natural changes.

    • How Long Do I Need To Take Off Work?

      Your Rhinoplasty will be carried out as a day-case procedure. Patients often can check-in with their work emails when they get home (should they need to). Almost all patients are ready to work from home the following morning after surgery and can aim to return to client-facing jobs from Day-7 when the nasal splint is removed. We have observed that between 6-8 days after Rhinoplasty, 97% of our patients show no visible signs of surgery.

    • How Much Bruising & Swelling Is There?

      Of course, every patient is different. Some patients have no swelling at all, but generally, swelling around the eyes is very normal. This increases for up to 72 hours after surgery and settles down after a further 72 hours. Generally, by day-7 after surgery, there will be only residual yellow discolouration around the eyes that can be covered with makeup.

    • I Live Far From London. Can I Still Consider My Rhinoplasty At BSqM?

      6% of our Rhinoplasty patients per year live abroad. 62% of all Rhinoplasty patients we consult and operate live outside London, including the South Coast, Kent, Midlands and as far up as Scotland. When considering your Rhinoplasty, you may want to know that your consultation should be in person. You can also undergo your pre-operative tests at the same visit on your first appointment. Your second visit can be the date of your Rhinoplasty surgery, and you are able to travel home the same day (accompanied by a friend or family member). We can perform a stitchless surgery where you can remove your nasal cast yourself on day 7 without having to return to London to see us. This appointment will usually be conducted via video call. Your next advised return to London should be in-person approximately 12-weeks after your treatment. This can also be performed over a video call.

    • I've Had Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty. Can I Still Have Surgery?

      The short answer is yes. At your consultation, you are not required to dissolve your dermal filler results for assessment. We will be able to assess you as normal. It is ideal to bring any photos you have of your nose prior to having Dermal Filler to your consultation with us. At the time of any Rhinoplasty surgery, we would dissolve any remaining dermal filler.

    • Should I get Rhinoplasty Digital Imaging?

      Many of our patients per year undertake Rhinoplasty Imaging. This is a personal choice. Many patients will have a clear understanding of the aim of their surgery after discussion with our Surgeon. Some patients have morphed their own photos (which they are welcome to show to our surgeon). Some patients will have an aim of surgery by using the photos of a previous patient in our Before and After Gallery. However, it is very normal to want to see an aim of what your results could look like and Rhinoplasty Digital Imaging is the most advanced service available to you.

    • Having General Anaesthesia, Key facts On Your Safety

      Some patients can be more worried about having General Anaesthetic than the treatment itself. General Anaesthetic is, overall, very safe. Complications arise from those who have significant health conditions. We carry out Rhinoplasty under General Anaesthetic in our fully accredited and CQC-regulated hospital. At Berkeley Square Medical, all patients will have an appointment on the morning of their procedure to meet and discuss General Anaesthesia. All our Anaesthetists are Consultants on the Specialist Registrar with the General Medical Council (GMC) UK.

    • What Are the Chances I Will Need a Second Surgery?

      Rhinoplasty Surgery carries one of the highest rates of revision worldwide compared to most other cosmetic surgeries. The national average of revision Rhinoplasty in the UK ranges between 5-10%. In the US, it can be as high as 15% of patients requiring a revision surgery. Berkeley Square Medical's recent research and publication in 2022 found that our revision rate for the last 800 Rhinoplasty surgeries performed achieved a revision rate of 3%.


    rhinoplasty vs septoplasty - the difference between the two surgeries
    Rhinoplasty vs. Septoplasty

    Are Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty the Same Thing? Because they are both nose surgical procedures, it is easy for some patients to confuse a Rhinoplasty with a Septoplasty. The truth is that these procedures are not entirely the same. Here is what you need to know about these two popular surgical operations for the nose. Rhinoplasty […]

    Deviated Septum Rhinoplasty

    A Deviated Septum is noticeable from a cosmetic point of view especially when looking at one's front facing profile. Straightening of the septum can have an extremely positive impact on one's complete facial features.

    Arabic Rhinoplasty

    Arabic Rhinoplasty is an considered an ethnic form of nose surgery that requires an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to ensure the best results in line with natural results whilst retaining the patients natural ethnicity.

    Exercise After Rhinoplasty

    Exercise after Rhinoplasty is a common question asked by patients who are either trainers or gym enthusiasts. We look at the do's and don'ts of exercising after a nose job and when to resume training.

    Indian Rhinoplasty

    We Specialise in patients with an ethnic background from the Indian subcontinent. A Rhinoplasty performed on patients with this ethnicity often carry similar natural traits but vary in personal goals.

    Flying After Rhinoplasty

    A very common question that arises in a patients busy schedule is when can you travel after having a Rhinoplasty procedure. This is a very important factor when booking in for your procedure, especially if you have already arranged travelling, whether business or pleasure.
