Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Mr Irfan Khan and his team offer rhinoplasty in Liverpool, helping patients achieve their desired nasal shape and improved breathing functionality. Whether you’re considering rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons or to correct a functional issue, understanding the process can help you feel more confident and prepared for your surgery journey.

Understanding Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the nose. This can involve altering the size, shape, or proportions of the nose. It can also involve addressing any structural issues that may be causing breathing difficulties. The surgery is highly customisable, with each procedure tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of the patient.

Your Consultation

The first step in your rhinoplasty journey is a thorough consultation with Mr Irfan Khan, a highly experienced plastic surgeon. During this consultation, you will discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history and any functional concerns. Mr. Khan will conduct a detailed examination of your nose and facial structure and may use imaging technology to show you potential outcomes. You can use this time to ask questions, express your expectations, and ensure that you fully understand the procedure and its potential results.

Your Procedure

It is normal for rhinoplasty to require a general anaesthetic. It can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery. There are two main types of rhinoplasties:

  1. Open Rhinoplasty: Involves a small incision on the columella (the tissue between the nostrils) and allows for greater visibility and precision.
  2. Closed Rhinoplasty: The surgeon makes all incisions inside the nostrils, resulting in no visible scarring.

Mr. Khan will choose the best approach based on your specific needs and goals. During the surgery the surgeon reshapes your the nasal bones and cartilage to achieve the desired outcome. If necessary, cartilage grafts may be used to support the new shape of the nose.

Recovery and Aftercare

After the surgery, you will need to rest and allow your body to heal. Swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes are common and should gradually lessen over the first few weeks. A splint may be placed on your nose to protect it and maintain its new shape during the initial healing period.

It is crucial to follow all aftercare instructions provided by Mr Khan and attend all scheduled follow-up appointments. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within two weeks, although strenuous activities should be avoided for at least six weeks.

Expected Results

The final results of your rhinoplasty will become apparent as the swelling continues to decrease. This can take up to a year. The outcome should be a nose that looks natural and balances with your other facial features, enhancing your overall appearance and potentially improving breathing function if structural issues were a problem.
