What is Rhinoplasty surgery?
A nose job, or “rhinoplasty”, is a very popular form of cosmetic procedure. It was the most common amongst UK men in 2013, with 1037 opting for the surgery.
For women, the numbers undergoing rhinoplasty surgery have increased slightly with 3228 in 2012 and 3841 in 2013. There are, unfortunately, some cases where, through medical negligence this surgery does not provide the expected outcome.
