Rhinoplasty/septorhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty – more commonly known as a ‘nose job’ – is an operation to alter the appearance, and sometimes the function, of the nose. During a septorhinoplasty, the surgeon will operate on the septum (the cartilage that separates the two nostrils) as well as the nose externally. Each nose has its own individual anatomy, and this renders planning a rhinoplasty a very personalised and bespoke process.

Rhinoplasty with grafting

Sometimes, a rhinoplasty will require the addition of a graft to finesse the results – whether this is a cartilage graft to support the internal structure, or a skin graft to improve the appearance of skin lesions or deformities in nose as a result of trauma.

Nasal reconstruction

Following either major trauma or tumour removal (most commonly in skin cancer survivors), the nose may require reconstruction. The nose is the focal point of the face and facial harmony centres on it, so the importance of a finessed, bespoke and natural looking result cannot be overemphasised – particularly being that most patients have already experienced trauma of some description and are looking to restore their facial appearance and proportions.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

The sinuses, which are important for aiding nasal breathing and the flow of mucus in the nose and throat, can often develop infections or inflammations (known commonly as sinusitis). In most cases, sinusitis can be treated with antibiotics or a nasal spray, but in cases when these are ineffective, it may be necessary to perform Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

Cleft rhinoplasty

Patients with a cleft deformity may have medical breathing issues, as well as the superficially apparent cosmetic problems. A cleft rhinoplasty seeks to address both. There are nuances in the way it is performed, depending on the severity of the cleft, its external appearance and whether medical problems have arisen as a result of it.
