Rhinoplasty is one of the most sought after surgical procedures in the cosmetic surgery field. It alters the dimensions of the nose by reshaping, cutting and grafting the human nose using an advanced system of techniques that are constantly being improved as thousands of surgical procedures every year are being carried out in the UK alone.
Most of the best nose surgeons in the UK specializing in rhinoplasty are members of the BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and any patient looking for rhinoplasty surgery should check that the surgeon under consideration is a certified member of the BAAPS. Rhinoplasty in the UK is available nationwide in various private clinics and many of the best in Britain are found in Harley Street, London. The Harley Street Medical Group is one of the most successful plastic surgery clinics in the UK and it has branches in many UK cities including Harley Street.
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialist area as it often involves the specific alteration of nasal structures that are usually (but not always) characteristic of a particular ethnic group and in many cases reducing the ethnic appearance of the patient. This type of rhinoplasty must be carefully carried out so that the altered nose is still in proportion to the other features of the patient's face which may also be characteristic of their ethnic group. This would suggest that a surgeon would advise the patient the limitations involved so that, for example, a West African male from sub Saharan Africa, does not end up with a nose like a quintessentially English schoolgirl. This requires the skills of a top nose surgeon with the experience of dealing with ethnic rhinoplasty over many years.
When trying to compare the best nose surgeons in the UK and London one must first be sure that the surgeon is professionally qualified and has the appropriate experience to perform rhinoplasty surgery. After confirming membership of the General Medical Council, be sure to check that they are members of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons or BAAPS. In addition, the best nose surgeons performing rhinoplasty surgery in the UK will not mind providing patient references for prospective patients to contact and ask questions regarding the level of patient care during the procedure as well as the aftercare service provided.
