Frequently Asked Questions
Making the decision to undergo surgical procedures can be a difficult one, and there are many questions you may have. Please read the frequently asked questions below which may answer any queries or ease any concerns you may have.
How can nose reshaping surgery improve your appearance?
This type of surgery specifically alters the shape and size of the nose. Unlike many of the other facial rejuvenation procedures we offer, this is not an anti-ageing treatment, but a way to create a permanent change to the aesthetics of the nose. It’s worth keeping in mind that rhinoplasty can make the face overall quite different so you should have your expectations managed.
Who is suitable for this type of surgery?
Surgery to change the aesthetics of the nose can be offered to suitable patients of any age providing they are over 18. A rhinoplasty consultation is essential to determine whether nose reshaping surgery is suitable for you, and what technique will provide you with the best result.
What happens during rhinoplasty procedures?
There are open and closed techniques to nose reshaping surgery so how your surgery will happen, depends on this. During surgery the bone is shaped or altered in order to create an improved aesthetic.
This popular type of cosmetic surgery takes 1.5-2 hours, on average but this may vary depending on the patient. It may take longer if the surgeon needs to correct any medical issues or previous surgeries.
What is the recovery like?
There will be some initial swelling and bruising around the nose and under eye area which is normal and subsides in time. Painkillers can be prescribed to manage any discomfort you may feel post surgery.
A full aftercare plan will be given to you, including when you’re likely to be able to return to work. On average, patients usually take around 6 weeks to recover but this varies patient to patient.
How long do the results of nose shaping surgery last?
This procedure is permanent. There are non-surgical nose job alternatives available using dermal fillers if you think a less invasive option with short term results may be more preferable.
Who should you trust to perform facial rejuvenation surgery?
Nose reshaping surgery is a commonly requested procedure but it requires the skill of a true expert to get the best results. LASE Cosmetic in Newcastle has a team of plastic surgeons and rhinoplasty experts ready to help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
