Rhinoplasty, colloquially known as a nose job, is a specialised surgical procedure that focuses on altering the shape, size, or functionality of the nose. Various factors can drive individuals to consider Rhinoplasty, including genetic predispositions, past traumas, or a general dissatisfaction with their nose’s natural shape or size.

The procedure is versatile, addressing a wide array of aesthetic concerns such as nose asymmetry, humps, or bulbous tips, as well as functional issues like deviated septums that can impede breathing. Mr Waseem Saeed, our Rhinoplasty specialist at KP Surgical, is one of the Uk’s most experienced surgeons. He is expert in achieving the desired outcomes, whether from an initial Rhinoplasty procedure or a Rhinoplasty revision.


The journey toward undergoing a Rhinoplasty starts with an initial consultation. This session is a cornerstone in the surgical process, providing a platform for the surgeon to thoroughly evaluate the patient’s facial anatomy, specifically focusing on the nose from various angles. The surgeon will also discuss the patient’s aesthetic and functional goals, laying out a detailed surgical plan that aligns with the patient’s expectations and what is surgically possible.

Anesthesia is a critical component of the procedure, and options are discussed in detail with the patient. While local anaesthesia combined with sedation is often sufficient for minor procedures, general anaesthesia will likely be recommended for more complex cases or for patients who prefer it.

The Rhinoplasty procedure itself can be performed using various techniques, each tailored to address specific issues. Incisions are typically made either inside the nostrils or a small access incision is made on the underside of the nose between the nostrils. Through these incisions, the surgeon can manipulate the bone and cartilage, either removing or adding tissue, to achieve the desired shape and size of the nose.

Once the reshaping is complete, the incisions are closed with extreme care, and the nose may be packed with gauze or bandage. Topical ointments may also be applied to the incisions to facilitate the healing process and minimise the risk of infection.


PLEASE NOTE: While some results may be visible sooner, final results often take a few months for swelling to fully subside.
Actual return to activity times will be discussed and agreed with your Surgeon.


You may choose to undergo a Rhinoplasty procedure for a number of reasons:

Rhinoplasty offers transformative aesthetic benefits. The procedure can bring a more balanced and harmonious look to the face by reshaping or resizing the nose. Whether it’s reducing a hump on the bridge or refining the tip, the subtle changes can dramatically impact one’s appearance.
Beyond the aesthetic improvements, Rhinoplasty can offer significant functional advantages. For individuals who have long struggled with breathing issues due to a deviated septum or other structural problems within the nose, Rhinoplasty can improve the ease and comfort of breathing.
The enhancements in appearance and functionality often translate into psychological benefits. Many patients report a significant boost in self-esteem and self-confidence, which manifests in a more positive outlook in social interactions, professional engagements, and even in their overall demeanour and approach to life.

While surgical procedures offer the potential for significant improvements in health and well-being, it is crucial to understand that they are not without risks. All surgical interventions carry inherent risks, which may include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, and the possibility of unsatisfactory results. The specific risks associated with your procedure will be discussed in detail during your pre-operative consultations with our medical team. Our dedicated staff will work closely with you to minimise these risks, ensuring the safest and most successful outcome possible. It’s essential to follow all pre and post-operative instructions meticulously to reduce the likelihood of complications.

Rhinoplasty focuses on the shape and appearance of the nose, while Septoplasty corrects a deviated septum to improve breathing.
Initial swelling subsides within a few weeks, but minor swelling can persist for several months.
Some discomfort is normal but generally manageable with prescribed pain medication.
Follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully, including medication schedules and activity restrictions.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries, with hundreds of thousands of procedures done each year worldwide.
