At our practice in London, rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures. Rhinoplasty or nose surgery, sometimes referred to as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job”, improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. If you want to improve the way your nose looks, consider rhinoplasty in London.
The size and shape of your nose significantly impacts the appearance of your face, particularly if you are unhappy with it.
Dr. Foued Hamza is experienced in reducing the size and shape of the nose, increasing or decreasing the size of nostrils, and smoothing lumps and bumps. He is considered by his patients to offer the best rhinoplasty London residents can look forward to.
Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.
Enhancing Your Appearance with Nose Plastic Surgery
Rhinoplasty surgery can change:
- Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures
- Nose width, at the bridge
- Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
- Nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry and deviation
Your nose will be more natural-looking and will complement your appearance. Whether it is larger, smaller, or reshaped, you will look and feel better.
Good Candidates for Rhinoplasty
You may be considered a good candidate for rhinoplasty if you are unhappy with your nose, your facial growth is complete, and you are in good physical health. It also helps if you do not smoke and have positive and realistic expectations of the surgery’s outcome.
However, you may not be able to undergo rhinoplasty if you have health problems such as lung or heart conditions, are pregnant, or are nursing.
Your Rhinoplasty Consultation
Before the procedure, you will need to consult with Dr. Hamza. Dr. Hamza will conduct a medical evaluation, examining the cartilage and bones of your face and nose. Dr. Hamza will ask about your medical history, including current medications, allergies, and previous surgeries. He may also order various lab tests.
Dr. Hamza will explain the options for rhinoplasty, take photos of your nose, and create a surgical plan. He will discuss potential outcomes, potential risks, and potential cost.
Use the consultation as an opportunity to ask Dr. Hamza questions about the rhinoplasty process. You must understand what will happen during and after the procedure and what you must do to prepare for it.
A nose job is performed either under general anesthetic or under local anesthetic with sedation, and is often treated as a day case, meaning you will not have to stay in the hospital overnight. The procedure usually takes one hour to complete depending on the extent of the work that Dr. Foued Hamza will have to do. There is no one technique for this procedure as it depends on what you are unhappy with and what you want to achieve.
After the rhinoplasty, you may have gauze placed in your nostrils to keep the newly reshaped tissues intact. You may also have a nasal splint or cast to help you recover.
Listen to Dr. Hamza’s recovery directions, such as avoiding blowing your nose (or, if necessary, doing it very gently) and keeping your head above your heart when you sleep to minimize swelling. You must have a week of downtime, take pain medications as instructed, and avoid strenuous activities.
Make sure to come to Dr. Hamza’s follow-up appointments. If a nasal splint was placed, it may be removed a week after the surgery. The final results may not be fully apparent until up to a year has passed, when all swelling has ameliorated.
How Much Does a Rhinoplasty Cost in London?
The cost of a London Rhinoplasty can vary on a number of factors. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Hamza will meet with you in his office to discuss all options and the price of the surgery.
