Asked on 28 June 2013


I am looking to go into the modelling career as I have been approached a couple of times but the only thing that is holding me back is the shape of my nose.

I have a hump in the middle and have a hooked shaped tip. If I sent some images in could you tell me what you could do and if any complications at all?

What the recovery time would be any dangers of looking like Michael Jackson at the end?


In general terms, the purpose of the consultation is not so much for me to tell patient is what I would do for them, but rather from you to understand what they would like as a result and evaluate whether this is achievable through surgical intervention and what it would involve.

Without the interactive element, I do not consider the imaging to be of great value.

There is always a small risk of complications with surgery irrespective of the type of surgical intervention.

The recovery time is typically 2 weeks, although if you are considering modelling, this interval would be somewhat longer.
