Jonathan has an expertise in aesthetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty and offers open and closed rhinoplasty for a range of indications from subtle change in the nasal tip to entire nasal framework remodelling. A tailored approach is always taken to plan for the desired aims and your personal situation.
Nose reshaping not only improves and enhances the facial silhouette, but can also help promote better nasal breathing and improve sleep.
NASAL RECONSTRUCTIVE RHINOPLASTY
Jonathan has much experience in remodelling and reconstruction of the nose in response to birth and developmental anomaly, as well as in response to post-accident and post-cancer care . He uses a range of bone, cartilage and soft tissue reconstruction techniques to achieve aesthetically balanced results. Procedures take from one to three hours and clients can expect to resume life as normal in four to six weeks with one to two weeks away from work. A cast may be worn if nasal framework change is undertaken, and this may be required for seven to ten days after surgery.
After researching my options I concluded that Mr Britto was the best available and I duly booked an appointment to see him. He described the process in some detail and after a fairly lengthy discussion (during which I never felt under any pressure) we decided to go ahead with it. The operation itself was a complete success and I have suffered no side effects from it, in fact I’m delighted with the outcome. The quality of care I received from the hospital during and after the operation was excellent and I would feel confident going there again should I need to.

Nasal surgery for cosmetic aim has been in evidence for centuries, even preceding the development of anaesthesia to make it comfortable! Nasal shape and form has tremendous cultural and gender significance. Jonathan uses detailed planning, up to and including sophisticated 3D techniques, to facilitate aesthetic rhinoplasty for each component of the tip, dorsum, nasal pyramid, nostril flare (alar base) and root of the nose.
In rhinoplasty is the fine art of aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. Analysis of the ‘framework’ cartilage and bone of the nose, together with the ‘envelope’ of soft tissues brings the key to a technical success and satisfaction in outcome for both me and my patients.
3D planning and morphing software have made a great difference in considering expectation of outcome. Great advances in rhinoplasty surgical equipment for precision in technique have also helped, but I guess its clinical experience above all that delivers the result.
The surgery is precise and artistic, and incorporates an anticipation of the three stages of rhinoplasty – planning, surgery, and recovery. Jonathan brings a complete understanding of the behaviour of the lining, framework, and ‘envelope’ of the nose to surgical planning and technique – required to bring about a balanced and harmonious result.
Procedures take from one to three hours and clients can expect to resume life as normal in four to six weeks with one to two weeks away from work. A cast may be worn if framework change is undertaken, and this may be required for seven to ten days after surgery.
I am so happy that I found Mr Britto!! I had previously seen a few surgeons, none of which I felt very comfortable with, however after researching my local hospital, I came across Mr Britto and decided to book a consultation. I had trawled the internet for previous reviews and couldn’t find much information on him which is why I thought it was so important to express my profound happiness over choosing him as my surgeon! On my initial consultation we had an in depth chat, where he asked me exactly what I wanted and what could realistically be achieved. He had drawn me a picture of what he was looking to do and explained the reasoning behind everything. I then went back for a second consultation where he put my face on to a screen so we could play around with the nose shape and size, making sure we were both happy at every stage. I had a bump at the top of my nose and was really conscious that while it needed to go, I didn’t want to look too different front on because I liked the way it was. He put me completely at ease, explaining everything and never promising anything he couldn’t deliver. I booked my procedure around a month later at his London practice. I arrived at 2pm and was shown to my room within 10 minutes. The nurse initially came in to introduce himself and take all my details, followed by the anaesthetist and lastly by Mr Britto. I felt completely at ease the whole time because everything was explained to me step by step. After the procedure I felt no pain and was out of hospital that evening. My bruising lasted for four days in total, after speaking with friends who have had similar procedures, I understand it was almost unheard of for bruising to go down so quickly. My splint was removed after a week and Mr Britto explained that the tools he used were some of the best currently on the market, which is why the bruising was so minimal. I was still slightly swollen after the first week, but I would say by week two, most of it had gone. I had another consultation three weeks post op and have another in a couple months time. This just proves to me that he genuinely cares about his patients and the outcome. I am absolutely in love with my new nose, I can’t express how appreciative of Mr Britto I am! The difference is big enough for myself and my friends to notice but small enough that it hasn’t drastically changed my appearance. I wouldn’t think twice about recommending him to anyone who is thinking of this procedure.
