Welcome to Manchester Rhinoplasty, Professor Tim Woolford’s website which aims to give balanced information for patients who are considering rhinoplasty, and introduce his approach to this operation.

To Introduce Myself:

I am a Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon at the University Department of Otorhinolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, Manchester Royal Infirmary, and the Spire Manchester Hospital, with 20 years’ experience performing rhinoplasty and treating patients with ear, nose & throat conditions.

Almost all the operations I perform are rhinoplasties or specialist nasal plastic surgery. The only cosmetic operation I perform in my private practice is rhinoplasty, enabling me to concentrate my expertise on this challenging procedure.

Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures.
Nose conditions
Management of nose problems such as nasal blockage, sinusitis, nasal polyps, smell disorders, facial pain and nose bleeds.
Throat conditions
Patients with throat and voice problems may require an endoscopy in order to make the correct diagnosis.
Ear Conditions
Patients who have problems with wax blocking their ears can have the wax safely removed using the technique of microsuction.

A Personal Approach

Let me take this opportunity to outline my personal approach to nasal cosmetic surgery and how I aim to treat patients under my care.

In my view the fundamental aim of a rhinoplasty is to give my patients a natural looking nose with normal breathing; a nose which is in balance with other facial features. Every effort is made to achieve a ‘non-operated’ look by avoiding excessive surgery which could weaken the nasal structure and cause breathing problems or create an unnatural appearance.

With experience I have become increasingly aware that a key component of a successful rhinoplasty is that my patients have realistic expectations.
I will tell each patient clearly what I think I can achieve and explain the risks of surgery including the rare possibility of a poor outcome which may require a second operation.
