Rhinoplasty surgery for patients from Alderley Edge should be performed by a surgeon with specialist knowledge and experience. Mr Tim Woolford is an experienced and qualified specialist rhinoplasty surgeon who provides cosmetic and corrective rhinoplasty surgery for many nasal problems. Depending on your needs, you may require either open (external) rhinoplasty, where small incisions are made in the soft tissue between the nostrils, or closed (endonasal) rhinoplasty where the incisions are made inside the nose. Mr Woolford is experienced in both types of operations and can assess and advise which one will provide the best solution for you.
If you live in Alderley Edge, rhinoplasty surgery by Mr Woolford is convenient, as he is based nearby at Spire Manchester Hospital. An initial consultation with Mr Woolford will provide the information you need about rhinoplasty surgery, and if you decide to proceed or would like a further discussion, a second consultation will describe the operation in moree detail, with review of your photographs & discussion of the changes you can expect. It is Mr Woolford’s belief that the success of an operation lies in the patient being very well informed, with clear and realistic expectations of the results. During the surgery, Mr Woolford’s experienced Consultant Anaesthetist colleague will make sure you are comfortable, and together they will conduct your operation with the greatest care.
After rhinoplasty surgery, when you return home to Alderley Edge, there are a few important do’s and don’t’s that Mr Woolford will explain to you. When you wake after the surgery you will find that Mr Woolford has applied a moulded protective shield to your nose, which will be removed about a week later. It is recommended that you stay the night under Mr Woolford’s care at the hospital, and he will review you next morning. You will be given antibiotics and painkillers if required, though the procedure is generally not very painful. When your cast is removed, swelling that is normal and will reduce as the weeks and months go by.
