What is rhinoplasty (or nose reshaping)?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct or reconstruct the nose. This may be needed to straighten the nose, reduce a hump in size, alter the tip or correct any dips or depressions on the bridge of the nose. Abnormalities inside the nose causing twisting or blockage may also be corrected.
The aims of surgery are:
- to improve the nose cosmetically and to maintain or improve function
- to produce a nose that is in harmony with the face
- to produce a result that has a natural, non-operated appearance.
These aims are achieved through a careful assessment of the individual before the operation, to ensure that the surgical plan is tailored for each patient.

What is digital imaging?
Digital imaging allows you to see the modification that can be achieved prior to any surgery. It enables subtle variation of form to be carried out and reviewed so a suitable surgical goal can be agreed.
Our specialist digital imaging system uses images from the frontal, basal, left and right oblique and profile views of your face. The system then allows you and the surgeon to manipulate and modify the characteristics effortlessly so you can see the results.
