Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, can be performed for purely cosmetic reasons, but can also be done for deformities of the nose that are congenital or are as a result of trauma. The most common techniques come under the banner of either ‘open’ or ‘closed’ rhinoplasty. Each has its own benefits and applications and surgeons who offer rhinoplasty should be trained in both techniques.
Rhinoplasty surgery can change the shape of nearly any part of the nose; those presenting for rhinoplasty will spend time with the surgeon discussing their nose and what they would like changed. Only once a patient’s expectation matches exactly what the surgeon can realistically deliver will surgery go ahead. This approach has been proven to lead to the greatest degree of patient satisfaction.
This may seem obvious, but far too often patients seeking rhinoplasty are talked into a procedure they don’t really want so it fits within an inexperienced surgeon's capabilities - this only leads to patient dissatisfaction. So, at Sandhurst Plastic Surgery, you and your surgeon will spend as much time as needed to make sure you get the result you want.
