One of the more difficult operations to follow is Rhinoplasty, the procedure to shape the nose by creating a better profile, shortening the length, refining the tip or reducing the nostril flair. Mostly, this surgery takes place inside the nostril and therefore does not leave any marks on the nose at all.


Patients enquire about Rhinoplasty from a much younger age than other cosmetic procedures, but for those under 18, parental consent is required. At any age, the size or shape of the nose can cause the patient embarrassment, and if this is impacting on confidence, it is worth consulting with a surgeon to learn more about the procedure and the options.


This is one of the operations which may have a Medicare item number, and if this is the case, insured patients may have hospital and anaesthetic costs covered and a rebate on the surgery.
