I had rhinoplasty and septoplasty surgery with Dr De Silva in December 2019. My experience with Dr De Silva and his team could not have been better. I did not at any point feel pushed or rushed to make a decision. Dr De Silva is very calm, patient and attentive. He has a keen eye for detail and a focus on natural looking results, which is exactly what I wanted. The procedure itself (performed under sedation) was completely pain-free. I was able to leave the surgery about 30 minutes after it concluded. The first few days following the procedure were a little uncomfortable (entirely as expected), but pain-free and easily manageable given the high level of aftercare Dr De Silva and his team provide.

I had Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty with Dr De Silva in January of this year and am delighted with the result. I did lots of research on potential surgeons and chose Dr De Silva because he achieves natural looking results, is also an artist and has a deep understanding of facial balance, and because we were both on the same page regarding what we wanted to achieve . My confidence has improved and my nose is now in balance with the rest of my face. My breathing has improved significantly. I was anxious the week before because it was my first surgery, but the whole team were so supportive. Sedation went very well and I was able to go home around 30 minutes after the procedure. Following surgery I had zero pain and minimal bruising or swelling. I would recommend Dr De Silva to anyone considering surgery and couldn’t be happier

Dear Dr De Silva First of all thank you - I honestly thought the experience was brilliant. Have already fed back one thing on setting expectations a tad more clearly when cast comes off as it is quite a shock. Other than that twilight sedation and quality of care was superb. My nose is still settling hence the reason I have not submitted a review. Tip feels numb and Swollen still & we are a year in early December. Was waiting to see - overall happy with the profile of bridge being less curved and straight but tip and V shape still quite dominant - as I said maybe down to swelling
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 in London.

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.
