Rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedure can significantly improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Nasal surgery may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.
Mr Warr firmly believes in “the Natural Face” and the changes he makes are designed to result in a “naturally” improved appearance.
Nasal surgery is a refined and specialised process in which one millimeter can make all the difference. There is no absolute standard in this area making the procedure artistic, creative, and sculptured.
Patients come to me with a variety of reasons; some may be subtle or severe. Common complaint are a “big ball” on the end of the nose, a hanging or drooping tip, a hump on the top, a crooked nose, dents or bumps and difficulty breathing. I use computer imaging to make sure that we both see the same thing and have the same goals.
The anatomy of the nose is relatively straightforward. There is a distinct framework of bone and cartilage with overlying skin that may be thick or thin. Internally, there is a mucous membrane.
When performing rhinoplasty surgery, these different anatomical features must be analysed and taken into account.
Construction of a surgical plan includes a very thorough exam, computer images, and then illustrative drawings of your anatomy.
There are several forms of rhinoplasty that I perform:
Open Rhinoplasty: This is a more modern technique that allows direct visualisation of problems in the nose.
Closed Rhinoplasty: An older and simpler technique that works well where only the hump needs to be addressed. There is no cut on the outside.
Revision Rhinoplasty: This is another highly sub-specialized area of rhinoplasty for patients who have already had a procedure and desire to have it revised and made better.
Rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and therefore you won’t be able to eat or drink for about six hours before the operation. Detailed instructions will be provided by the hospital on exactly what you should and should not do before surgery. The procedure usually takes around 2 hours and depending on the time of the operation and overnight stay.
In terms of follow up, the following guidelines are generalised and I will often vary these to match your individual needs.
- A Hospital stay is generally one (or sometimes two) nights
- Most patients who have a rhinoplasty are back to work within two weeks
- You will need to avoid bending or blowing your nose for one week after surgery
- You will need to avoid rigorous exercise for six weeks after surgery
- You will have a splint for one week after surgery day
- You can expect to be able to drive within one week
Firstly I’m so excited, I can barely type this! I am so so glad I did my research (and I did A LOT) and found Dr Warr! I have always hated my nose, it had a hump, was deviated, not straight and was slightly bulbous! It caused me extreme anxiety and really affected my life. I met Dr Warr with my dad, he was very upfront and very honest, this instantly made my dad and I comfortable, as he didn’t just say what I wanted to hear. He told me realistically what could be expected and made sure I was aware of it! I felt so at ease, and seeing his previous reviews and before and after felt in very capable hands! I have just come back from having my cast taken off and honestly I am still shocked! It’s far better than I could have ever imagined! dr Warr is a genius! For the first time in my whole life, I actually feel pretty and feminine, which I never thought I would! I’m honestly so grateful to him, he has changed my life. Not only is he the best in the buisness but he is also so lovely and caring! Thank you so much, never did I think my nose could turn out so perfect. (I can’t put the mirror down)
I cant thank Mr Warr enough. I am so so happy with my new nose. I had never been happy with my bulbous nose, hated seeing myself in photos. My breathing was also a problem as I had nasal deviation, and it was getting worse. I was completely blocked in my one nostril. After some research I went to see Mr Warr. He put me at ease straight away, very friendly and very professional. He explained everything in detail. The operation went really well, and here I am, with the nose I had always wanted. My breathing is now perfect, and the bulbous tip has gone, with no scarring at all. I couldn’t be happier. I have been told I have the perfect nose :) I cannot recommended Mr Warr enough.
I had tears in my eyes when I first saw the results. Tears of joy. Thank you.
