Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: Why is rhinoplasty difficult?

Nose as a Three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle

Rhinoplasty is a very difficult operation. I think it’s widely acknowledged that rhinoplasty is the most difficult of the facial plastic surgery procedures. The nose is very complicated. It’s not like a piece of marble that can be carved, it’s a three-dimensional jigsaw with multiple pieces, all of which have difficult shapes, face in different directions and have joins with all other bits of the nose. If you change one bit of the nose in a way that you wanted to change it might twist another bit of the nose, so we’re sometimes borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. The skin has to change, the lining has to change, there is a limit to how elastic the structures are and that’s why rhinoplasty is really difficult.

Julian has gone above and beyond my expectations.  I am amazed at the result and did not think it was possible to produce what he has. My ability to breathe is so much better and it has given me so much more confidence.  I am very pleased and thank you!
