Insecurities of any facial feature can affect a person’s self-esteem; particularly in today’s image conscious society. As one of the most prominent characteristics on our face, our noses can have a big impact on our confidence, particularly if it makes us feel unhappy about the way we look
Nose re-shaping surgery, also known as ‘Rhinoplasty’ or a ‘nose job’, is one of the oldest and most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed across the world. The Harley Medical Group (www.harleymedical.co.uk) has been experts in nose reshaping for 30 years.
There are many forms of Rhinoplasty procedures on offer at The Harley Medical Group depending on the individuals’ reasons for surgery. For those who wish to alter the size or shape of their nose itself, our Surgeons can make small incisions inside the actual nose to alter the bone structure. The skin around the nose will then immediately shrink back to fit the size of the new shape quickly and naturally.
If the surgery is to alter the tip of a patient’s nose, The Harley Medical Group’s Surgeons can effectively operate on the actual cartilage to achieve the desired shape. Surgery to straighten the nose is called a ‘Septo-Rhinoplasty’ and surgery to rebuild part of the nose is called ‘Augmentation Rhinoplasty’.
Hannah Roberts, Senior Nurse at The Harley Medical Group, says: “The most frequent requests we get for nose reshaping at The Harley Medical Group are usually for cosmetic reasons, however it is important to emphasise that Rhinoplasty is just as effective in correcting breathing issues and in helping alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnoea, or interrupted sleep. Most nose re-shaping surgery procedures take approximately two hours and are carried out under a general anesthetic, but each and every method will leave either no scarring, or barely visible scars hidden well within the natural nostril creases.”
Martha Johnson, a Rhinoplasty patient at The Harley Medical Group, says: “I have always loathed pictures of myself that would accentuate my profile as I had quite a big bump in the middle of my nose. But it was not just for cosmetic purposes that determined my decision to have a Rhinoplasty, but more my breathing difficulties and irritation at sniffling all the time. Since having surgery I now feel 100% more confident about the way I look. The Harley Medical Group couldn’t have done a better job; the process was quick and easy, I experienced little pain and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful”.
