How should I prepare for Rhinoplasty?
It is recommended that you stop smoking for at least one month prior to surgery in order to stop the blood thinning, which can create complications during surgery, as well as during the healing process. For the same reason, you may be required to stop taking certain types of medication and supplements. Your surgeon will review your medications during your consultation and advise you on this.
Am I a suitable candidate for Rhinoplasty?
If you are in good health and have realistic expectations about the result you can obtain, you could be a good candidate of rhinoplasty. Patients usually want to reduce the size of their nose, remove bumps, change asymmetrical features, fix flared nostrils.. It is important that the patient has reach full growth in theirs nose prior to surgery, so most patients would need to be at least 18 years of age prior to surgery.
What happens in the operating room?
The rhinoplasty surgery is done using the open or the closed technique. Using the open technique, an incision is made at the bottom of the nose across the nostrils. This method generally provides a better view of the nasal skeleton and therefore improved accuracy with contouring. For twisted noses, and post rhinoplasty deformities, the open technique is considered the better option. In contrast, the closed method requires an incision in the lining of the nostrils, and the great advantage of this technique is that visible scarring can be completely avoided. Once the incision is made, your surgeon will remove and re-arrange cartilage, and possibly break and remove certain parts of the bone in order to create the most flattering nasal contour. The incisions will then be closed, gauze will be packed into the nose, and a splint will be applied to the operated area.
What is the recovery process with Rhinoplasty?
You will be required to wear a nasal splint for around 7 days following the procedure to ensure that the shape of your new nose is kept intact and that your nose is protected from any direct contact. After this time, your splint will be removed but you will still have to be very careful with your new nose, as it will still be delicate. Swelling of your nose will decrease within 4 weeks, but you will not be able to see the final results of the surgery until 1 year after the procedure.
Are there any complications with Rhinoplasty surgery?
As with all cosmetic surgery, there are some risks involved. Risks associated with cosmetic nose surgery include excessive bleeding, tears to the nose, collapse of the bone pyramid, airway obstruction, and infections. Our operating suite is state-of-the-art, and we do everything we can to minimise the risks associated with surgery. Most importantly, your surgeon and his team have comprehensive safety protocols in place to prevent complications from occurring.

I had neck/jaw Lipo on Friday evening 16/10/15 after wanting it done since I was 16 as I have never had a jaw line or definition in my neck as always had a slope.The team have been absolutely fantastic. First of all arranging it on a Friday evening so I could have longer to recover over the weekend so I can go back to work on Monday. The communication from everyone has been fantastic. The procedure was great (If you can say great about a tube sucking out fat from your neck!). But seriously made me feel such at ease, comfortable and felt in such safe hands. The surgeon was so meticulous and careful which was great as the neck and jaw are visible to all. I was given a number of one of the surgeons whom I could contact if I had any queries or problems and also Michelle's contact details. This I must say has been extremely helpful. Seriously would not get that kind of patient care and attention anywhere I know and from anywhere I know of people have gone to. Great price, great customer care and attention and great professional and qualified team. Thank you to you all, it really means so much to me, its a massive life changer for me and I have all of you to thank for that! :)
