What is Cosmetic Rhinoplasty
A rhinoplasty, or nose job as it is commonly known, is a procedure which helps to reshape the nose. At Rhinoplasty LDN we work with you to improve the aesthetics of the nose so that it is in harmony with the facial features.
Am I suitable for nose re-shaping or a nose job?
You will have a detailed consultation to enable Mr Lakhani to gain an understanding of your concerns regarding the shape and function of your nose. After discussion and an examination of your nose Mr Lakhani will have an honest and open conversation with you about your suitability for surgery and the outcome you can expect. The good news is most patients can expect to achieve significant improvement in the shape of their nose. It is important to remain realistic about nose reshaping surgery. Whilst the nose can be refined and the shape of the nose significantly improved, a complete change in the shape of the whole nose may carry too many risks.
How can rhinoplasty help with the shape of the nose?
Cutting edge nose reshaping at Rhinoplasty LDN
Mr Lakhani offers the very latest technology and approaches in rhinoplasty surgery to ensure his patients have the very best outcomes with the lowest possible risk.
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty (piezoelectric rhinoplasty) – This technique allows accurate and delicate sculpting of the nose to achieve a smooth and refined look with reduced trauma. Mr Lakhani can use this technique to refine the bridge of the nose or narrow a wide nose effectively. This technique has transformed and significantly improved the ability to provide accurate reshaping of the nasal architecture.
Scarless and minimally invasive rhinoplasty - Mr Lakhani will carefully assess your nose and your suitability for a scarless or minimally invasive approach. Where appropriate, he will use this technique for you, and you can expect excellent results with a shorter recovery time.
Can a rhinoplasty help with breathing through the nose?
Your nose reshaping surgery can be easily combined with surgery to help breathing through the nose. Mr Lakhani commonly performs this type of combined surgery and can optimise the way your nose works whilst also refining its shape. Your rhinoplasty can also be combined with surgery to sinuses to help them work better in cases of sense of smell issues or sinus- related headache or pain.
