Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: Can your nose be made smaller?
Make the nose smaller
Most patients who request a rhinoplasty have a bump on the nose. Removing the bump will make the nose smaller, but often the patients will also say “I think my nasal tip projects out too far. Can you get rid of the bump but make my nose smaller?”
Global reduction of the nose
This is what we would call global reduction of the nose. This is difficult surgery; it’s not surgery for an inexperienced surgeon. Why do I say that? Well because it’s not actually too difficult to make each structure of the nose smaller on the inside, but when you do that you’ve got to make sure every bit fits together and you’ve also got to know that the skin on the outside and the lining on the inside is going to shrink. I see too many patients who have had global nasal reduction, in part or whole, when the skin was just never able to shrink to fit the new nose and they look worse. So think very carefully about global size reduction and have a very careful discussion with your surgeon about it because it’s not as achievable as people would like to think it is.

A Rhinoplasty Testimonial
I just wanted to say it’s day two after my surgery, I have no idea what my nose looks like but even with the swelling the function of my nose has improved massively. I am really grateful and want to thank everyone for making this happen. On the day of the surgery I was so nervous Mr Rowe-Jones was amazing!
Immediately making me feel at ease and that everything I had discussed with him was under control. Truly an amazing surgeon, and with a genuine care for his patients that goes such a long way, no wonder he has such a fantastic reputation. All this would not have happened without his team behind him so thanks to all again!
