The Procedure

Patients usually seek a rhinoplasty because their nose is too big, has a hump or is distorted. Modern techniques allow correction of all elements that require treatment in a single operation. Mr Floyd uses imaging software to help define the ideal shape and size of nose that most suits your facial features and uses that information to help plan surgery. (Please note that all images are original and un-modified and consent has been kindly given for their use)


A 29 year old patient had an open-tip rhinoplasty with removal of the dorsal hump and deprojection of the tip by David Floyd.


This 23 year old had broken her nose which was very distorted. She had an open-tip rhinoplasty by Mr Floyd. The bridge line was straightened and the tip lifted.


A 36 year old had a very over projected nose. David Floyd carried out an open-tip rhinoplasty with a de-hump, deprojection and tip refinement.
