At age 12 my nose was broken and wasn't fixed properly, it is now bent slightly to my right. I am also not happy with the following; 1. Nostrils too large 2. Nose projects too far from face 3. "Hump" on nose 4. Nasal septum misaligned, can only breath through 1 nostril and have limited sense of smell. I'm from the UK and I'm wondering what it would be likely to cost to have ALL of these fixed? I was expecting around 5k. Also can I get some opinions on what procedures I'll be needing? Thanks

Rhinoplasty for crooked, broken nose, decrease projection, and alar-plasty
The maneuvers necessary to address all of the issues stated above require osteotomies to straighten the crooked nasal bones, a spreader graft placed on the concave side( and occasionally both sides if inverted), shaving the bridge line down, and alar-plasty to narrow the wide nostrils and tip surgery to make sure it balances with remainder of the nose. The cost for rhinoplasty is between $7000 and $8000 which includes the operating room, anesthesia and surgeon's fee. Please see the link below for examples of crooked noses we have repaired in our Rhinoplasty practice.
