"I finally went ahead with my rhinoplasty at the age of 35. I was worried about recovery and breathing be a problem but my recovery was quick and my breathing is better than before. I am so happy with the results which are very natural. Dr De Silva really listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. The mental load of worrying about my nose has gone....no regrets. Thanks so much to Dr De Silva and his amazing team..... I should have done it years ago!"
By Jake, Revision rhinoplasty experience with Dr De Silva on Nov 21, 2021
"Dr De Silva and his team were outstanding throughout my entire procedure. I had a very complex nose job and didn’t really think much could be done to correct it. Once I met with Dr De Silva he immediately made me feel at ease. Listened to my thoughts as well as my expectations for what I wanted. My nose was very wonky prior due to breaking it from an early age and the results were better than I could imagine. My nose now doesn’t take up most of my face and looks very natural. There’s not a single thing that I would change and Dr De Silva and his entire team were so helpful during and after the surgery. I cannot recommend him enough! Jake"
All these patients underwent Rhinoplasty with Dr De Silva. We encourage patients to watch one or two videos of patient experiences to have a good understanding of healing and the recovery period. Dr. De Silva and his team will provide support and reassurance during your recovery, we believe that being a well-informed patient is helpful to most patients undergoing Rhinoplasty.
Dr De Silva has a large number of patients that live overseas. Our specialist team can help you organise a virtual consultation and coordinate your trip to the UK.
You would need to say in the UK for approximately 10days, prior to covid, many patients would fly internationally to London to undergo rhinoplasty before returning to their home country.
We are able to utilise the latest technology to enhance your recovery including oxygen therapy, medications, lymphatic drainage and regenerative medicine.
Most patients who look to undergo nose reshaping have felt self-conscious about their nose for many years before attending the consultation.
A nose that is out of balance with your face often becomes apparent in teenage years, though many patients take years to look into changing their nose.
Rhinoplasty is most commonly completed in patients aged twenty to forty-five, and Dr De Silva has completed surgery for some teenagers and patients in their 80s. Dr De Silva has had patients travel long distances and internationally for opinions on their nose, sometimes they have been refused surgery by local surgeons.
Often there may be additional factors to consider with increasing age, these can include breathing issues, drooping tip (termed ptosis) and increase irregularity, and these may require additional treatments at the same time to ensure a successful result.
Dr De Silva sees many younger patients for nose shaping in their teenage years. Many of these patients have disliked the appearance of their nose for many years before attending a consultation, and some have associated breathing issues and have been teased about their appearance.
Of key importance before considering rhinoplasty is the patient understands the implications of surgery, recovery, and expectations.
Utilising modern surgical techniques are important to ensure a long-lasting natural result. Dr De Silva completes nose reshaping on younger patients only when it is in their best interest and some patients travel long distances to London.
Rhinoplasty is commonly completed in a general hospital with other surgical procedures in a general private hospital. Patients often are concerned about issues with general hospitals such as MRSA and hospital-acquired infection. Dr De Silva has built a custom state of the art facility including a private operating theatre to enable complete specialisation for every patient.
