What is a nose job?
A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, is designed to surgically alter the size and shape of the nose to improve its appearance. Rhinoplasty surgery is designed to correct a number of conditions that can affect the nose, including bumps on the nasal bridge, crooked noses and bulbous noses. A nose job can also address functional aspects, including a deviated septum. The three main types of nose surgery include rhinoplasty, septo-rhinoplasty and rhino tip surgery. The price of each rhinoplasty procedure will depend on the extent of surgical correction required. Your surgeon will recommend the most appropriate rhinoplasty procedure once you have had a detailed consultation. Centre for Surgery is home to some of London’s most skilled rhinoplasty surgeons. We carry out hundreds of rhinoplasty procedures at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery clinic in Marylebone.

What does rhinoplasty surgery involve?
Rhinoplasty surgery involves a series of interconnected steps, and the procedure is always customised to the needs of the individual patient. Surgical rhinoplasty is performed under a general anaesthetic, which means you will be asleep throughout the procedure for your comfort. There are two types of rhinoplasty procedures. The first involves making an incision between your nostrils at the columella, known as an open rhinoplasty. With a closed rhinoplasty, all incisions are made inside the nostrils. The duration of a nose job will depend on whether an open or closed technique is used. Nose job surgery takes anywhere between one hour and four hours depending on the complexity of the case.
Is rhinoplasty covered by private medical insurance?
Certain types of rhinoplasty which involve correction of a deviated septum may qualify for private medical insurance cover. Septoplasty surgery which is a type of functional rhinoplasty, is often used to correct a deviated septum. Septal deviation can impede the normal flow of air through the nose and lead to nasal airflow obstruction. This can result in difficulty breathing and snoring at night. Cosmetic rhinoplasty purely for the improvement of appearance is not covered by private medical insurance.
Can I get a nose job on the NHS?
Cosmetic rhinoplasty is not available on the NHS as the NHS does not perform treatments which are designed purely for the improvement of cosmetic appearance. If you experience difficulty breathing through your nose, the NHS may perform functional rhinoplasty or septoplasty surgery to improve your breathing. If you are also looking to improve the appearance of your nose, we would recommend having treatment at a reputable private clinic. Septorhinoplasty surgery can correct both aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose in one procedure. If you choose to have a septoplasty first, this may remove vital septal cartilage, which may be required for later cosmetic rhinoplasty.

How much does nose surgery cost in the UK?
Nose job prices often differ depending on the extent of surgical correction required to achieve a particular cosmetic result. The price of a nose job will depend on several factors, including the technique used for rhinoplasty, whether open or closed. Other factors include the skills and experience of the rhinoplasty surgeon and the location of the clinic. When planning your nose job surgery, we would recommend considering the reputation of the clinic and its commitment to providing high standards of medical care before, during and after your procedure. Making your decision purely on price alone may increase the chances of receiving unsafe care at clinics that do not adhere to safe standards of medical practice. Open rhinoplasty starts from £5500, with prices for septo-rhinoplasty starting from £6000. Rhino tip correction starts from £4000.
