Surgical Aims

The aims of surgery are:

  • to improve the aesthetic appearance of the nose, self-image, confidence

  • reduction of nasal hump or size

  • augmentation / increasing and contouring the nasal tip or bridge

  • straightening of the nasal bones

  • refinement of the tip of the nose (narrowing, reshaping, altering length/projection, too flared/big nose, bulbous tip, improve symmetry)


  • correction of birth defects or broken nose

  • to produce a nose that is in harmony with the face (Your ideal nose may only suit someone else’s face and not yours)


  • to produce a result that has a natural (Non-operated appearance)

  • improve function (breathing) by treating a deviated nasal septum (the cartilage in the nose that separates the nostrils)





















Limitations of a nose job surgery are due to the unique tissues and structure of the nose. There is no perfection in rhinoplasty and it is impossible to replicate another person’s nose perfectly.


Those contemplating to have a substantial amount of bone or cartilage in the nose removed (Excisional Rhinoplasty) must appreciate its considerable long-term complications. Excisional surgery is technically easy to perform. However, the nose due to lack of structural support eventually, over many months or years, becomes deformed.

As a cosmetic surgeon and a nose specialist, Mr Elmiyeh aims to achieve the best cosmetic outcome without compromising the

nasal structural support and airway (breathing).
