A nose that is too prominent, misshapen or out of proportion with the rest of the face can leave a person feeling self-conscious, while a broken, or structurally abnormal nose, can cause breathing problems. These issues can be improved with Nose Surgery, known as Rhinoplasty or in certain instances, Dermal Fillers.

Also known as a “Nose Job”, Rhinoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. It can reduce or increase the size of your nose, reshape the tip or bridge, reduce flared nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and upper lip or forehead. And by restoring symmetry and alignment of nasal passages, the procedure can improve nasal breathing.

Virtually scar-free, Rhinoplasty is usually performed via incisions inside the nose or a small incision between the nostrils. Depending on your requirements, Mr Kode can build up or reduce nose size by adding or removing bone and cartilage. Reducing nostril size involves tiny incisions at the base of each nostril.

After surgery, a splint, internal tubes or packing is usually placed inside your nose and a splint or bandages applied outside to support the new structures and help reduce swelling and bleeding. These are usually removed after two weeks, along with stitches. Some people experience bruising and swelling which often occurs around the eyes, but this should ease off after 3 weeks. Most people can return to work at one to two weeks after surgery. It can take several months to a year to achieve the final result.

In the event that only minor tweeks are required to shape or functionality, Mr Kode may choose to use Dermal Filler Injections to correct any minor defects and dishaped noses.
