I am looking into plastic surgery to reduce the overall size of my nose.

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 17 February 2012


I have had several surgeries on my nose previously due to a BCC (the removal of this a few years ago led to some of the cartilage being removed and subsequent twisting of my nose tip due to the tightening of the scarring).

I believe the tip is now slightly enlarged, and as I was never really happy with the size of my nose in the first place I am looking into plastic surgery to reduce the overall size.

I live in Chichester, West Sussex and wondered which hospitals you practice surgery that are local to me?

Also, what is the time-frame between first consultation and surgery?

What is the average cost of rhinoplasty?

My previous surgeries were free of charge due to the reason behind the need!


In the 1st instance it is important that you are quite sure that the BCC has been well cleared with the last operation.

A combination of reconstruction and nose reshaping is a possibility, but would need careful evaluation.

It is also possible to separate the 2 interventions, and to have 1st further refinement in the appearance of the tip through the NHS, with a few for a later intervention for general reduction as a private treatment.

I would be happy to see you in consultation and discuss these points.
