The nose is the central feature of the face, so people often feel self-conscious about even quite small defects.
Elena Prousskaia carries out rhinoplasty surgery to correct/reshape the nose with great care and precision. In her opinion your nose should look completely natural after surgery, as if it has never been operated on and the size and shape should be in harmony with the rest of your facial features.
It is very important to have realistic expectations about the change you are looking for. Nasal swelling can take up to a year to settle down after the operation and the final outcome cannot be completely predicted because internal scarring can subsequently alter the result achieved during surgery.
Elena may use an open approach (small scar on the base of your columella – the central partition) or a closed approach (all scars inside the nostrils), depending on the modifications you are seeking. Choosing the right technique is very important and it is a decision which we will make together after a long conversation and examination in my clinic.
It is normal to then have a second consultation, for you to ask any further questions, once you have had time to consider the different surgical options. Elena will talk you through all the necessary pre-surgery investigations, as well as the after-care required. She will also fully explain the risks associated with the operation.
Only when we are in complete agreement that the objectives of surgery are in line with your realistic expectations will we go ahead with the operation.
