Nose Surgery Procedure

Open Rhinoplasty or Closed Rhinoplasty with or without septoplasty

1. Incisions are made on the narrow bridge between the nostrils that connects the tip of the nose to the base
2. The underlying structural layers of the nose are separated from the skin
3. Cartilage is removed, added or removed to reshape your nose
4. Open rhinoplasties allows greater visibility of the nasal structures and can allow for more extensive work to be done for more complex cases

Closed Rhinoplasty

1. Incisions are made inside of the nose, so that it is difficult to identify signs of the surgery
2. Skin is eased of the cartilage, and the nasal structures are reshaped
3. It is a quicker procedure with less recovery


1. The procedure straightens the septum and allow for easier air flow and breathing.

Nose Surgery Aftercare

Once your treatment is complete you will be transferred to the recovery room where you will rest and eat and drink. Usually after 30-90 minutes you will be ready to go home.

At Day 1 and Day 7 we will expect you to return for a wound check. Some sutures may be removed after 7 days and your wound checked. The remaining sutures will be removed 10 days to 2 weeks later.


No, typically it is General Anaesthetic or IV sedation.

It is treatment of a deviated septum that causes obstructive breathing problems. A deviated septum happens when the cartilage in the middle of the nasal passages is crooked thus obstructing air flow through 1 or both nostrils. A deviated septum may cause loud snoring.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
