Noses come in all shapes and sizes but if you are dissatisfied with the nose that you have been given why not consider a rhinoplasty in Bristol?

The nose is such a central feature of the face that even subtle improvements can have a significant impact, bringing your other facial features into balance and improving your self-esteem.

Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery, commonly referred to as a nose job, is one of the most frequently performed surgeries at the Reshape and Restore Cosmetic Surgery clinic in Bristol.


Am I a good candidate for nose reshaping surgery?


Reshape & Restore Procedures - Rhinoplasty

If you are in good health but find that the appearance of your nose is making you unhappy, self-conscious or anxious, then you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty surgery. A nose job can improve the size and shape of your nose. You may believe that your nose is too large, misshapen, crooked, bumpy or hooked, too wide or too flat. Whatever the issue, our specialist team of plastic surgeons can create a natural-looking nose for you that will be more aesthetically pleasing and in balance with the rest of your facial features.

Non-cosmetic reasons to have a nose job

Some of our patients require reconstructive surgery after trauma has caused damage to the nasal bones resulting in breathing difficulties.

A deviated septum is a common abnormality that doesn’t cause cosmetic problems but can make breathing difficult and noisy. Rhinoplasty surgery is an appropriate surgical procedure for this condition.

Why choose Reshape and Restore Bristol for rhinoplasty surgery

We always operate with your best interests at heart.

Your surgeon will assess your nose at your initial consultation and advise whether rhinoplasty surgery is the best choice for you. Many patients have firmly decided that they want to go ahead with surgery. They know that nose surgery will have a positive benefit on their lives but are still nervous. We understand that the idea of surgery and recovery can be challenging and we will support you through the decision process and answer as many questions as you need to ask.

Our founders, Mr Khan and Mr Chapman, are highly respected consultant plastic surgeons and their patient-centred ethos is at the core of everything we do.


Closed rhinoplasty vs open rhinoplasty

Nose reshaping surgery can be performed using two different techniques.

An open rhinoplasty accesses the nasal bones and tissues from outside the nose. Typically a small incision is made between the nostril. There will be a fine scar that will fade.

In a closed rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon will make surgical incisions inside your nose, leaving no scars.

Your surgeon will decide which technique will give the best results for your nose and discuss this with you at your initial consultation.

The rhinoplasty procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthetic depending on the complexity of the surgery. Again your surgeon will advise you on the best type of anaesthetic for you at your initial consultation.

How long is the recovery period after nose surgery?

You should expect swelling and bruising after your surgery, affecting both the nose and eye area. There will be some discomfort that will be controlled with painkillers. If your rhinoplasty surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic, you will need to stay in hospital overnight.

The nasal tissues inside the nose will be swollen and this will make your nose feel blocked. It is essential that you avoid blowing or disturbing your nose as this could cause bleeding, delaying healing and possibly affecting the final result. It will be easier to breathe if you stay in an upright position, and sleep supported by pillows.

We advise patients to protect their nose as much as possible during daily activities. For example, it is better to wear front-fastening clothes and to avoid pulling clothing over the head. Baths are safer than showers as the nose needn’t get wet. Try to be careful when brushing your teeth. However funny the joke, restrict yourself to a smile rather than laughing uproariously.

It will take up to 12 weeks for you to recover completely but all the sacrifices will have been worth it when you see your new nose.

Will I have any follow-up appointments at the Bristol clinic?

We will monitor your progress carefully at regular follow-up appointments during the weeks after your surgery. You may need to wear a splint for the first week to protect your nose and your dressings will need changing.

How much does nose surgery cost in Bristol?

It is impossible to give a firm price before your nose has been assessed by your cosmetic surgeon at your initial consultation. The final cost will vary depending on the techniques used but the cost of a typical rhinoplasty procedure starts at £5 500.
