Many people experience crooked noses, which can be bothersome or cause breathing difficulties. If you’re concerned about breathing issues or a crooked nose, rhinoplasty could be your solution.

This comprehensive guide explores the intricacies of rhinoplasty as a solution for straightening the nose, addressing various aspects such as procedure details, recovery, and risks.

Understanding rhinoplasty

Nose reshaping is a cosmetic surgery that aims to alter the appearance of the nose, improving symmetry and proportions for a more balanced facial profile. It can address aesthetic concerns, functional issues, or a combination of both. People often opt for rhinoplasty to straighten a crooked nose which can be achieved through careful manipulation of the nasal structure. Mr. Golchin can reshape the wall inside the nose and smooth out any bumps or uneven spots that make it look crooked.

Effectiveness of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the best ways to fix a crooked nose. The changes made through rhinoplasty surgery are usually permanent and can last a lifetime.

This is why it’s crucial to pick a skilled rhinoplasty surgeon like Mr. Golchin who can meet your expectations. Whilst this surgery us set to last a lifetime, it is important to note that as you get older, your nose may naturally change slightly. Facial injuries may also have an impact on it, changing its shape.

Consultation and planning

Crooked noses can result from various causes, including improper healing after a broken nose, congenital defects, or a deviated septum.

Before arranging a rhinoplasty, you will have a consultation with Mr. Golchin During this consultation, you will discuss various factors that will determine the suitability of the surgery for your specific needs. Typically, this consult includes:


Mr. Golchin will discuss your reasons for rhinoplasty and review your medical history, including any nasal issues or previous surgeries.


A thorough physical exam of your nose and facial features will be conducted to assess potential projected changes and evaluate factors affecting the outcome, such as skin thickness and cartilage strength.


Detailed photos of your nose will be taken from various angles, following which computer software will be used to simulate outcomes and facilitate discussions about goals.


An open conversation will address your motivations and desired results, ensuring realistic expectations are set for the procedure. Communication about appearance concerns is important for aligning goals with potential outcomes.

Procedure overview

Rhinoplasty procedures can be performed using either an open or closed approach, depending on the extent of correction needed. In an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision across the columella, allowing full access to the nasal structures.

In a closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nostrils, resulting in no visible external scars. The procedure involves reshaping the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissue to achieve a straighter profile.

Mr. Golchin is one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in London. He prefers using the internal approach for most surgeries whenever feasible. This method allows for better control over shaping the nose’s final appearance because it doesn’t loosen the skin too much during surgery.

As a result, it’s easier for plastic surgeons to assess and adjust the shape accurately during the procedure. Once anaesthesia is administered, small incisions are made inside the nose. Special tools are used to carefully separate the skin from the bones and cartilage underneath.

Then, the bone and cartilage are shaped to create the desired appearance.

What to expect after surgery

• Your nose might stay swollen for a few weeks. It can take a year or more for all the swelling to go away completely, but you’ll likely start to see improvements in a few weeks
• Your face might look swollen and puffy, especially on the first day after surgery
• It’s common to have some bruising or swelling around your eyes
• Most people can go back to work or school about a week after the surgery

Post-surgery instructions

After your plastic surgery is done, it’s very important to follow your surgeon’s instructions carefully, especially:
• Don’t blow your nose for two to three weeks
• Keep your head raised when you sleep for the first three days
• Stay out of the sun
• If you notice any problems or changes, like a high fever, lots of bleeding, severe pain, a rash, vision changes, or anything else unusual, let your surgeon know right away
• Make sure to go to all your follow-up appointments after the surgery
