Tanya Ridding's story

Nose surgery

Tanya decided to have open rhinoplasty in early 2017 because she lacked confidence and at 24 years old felt it was time to do something about it.

“I had been thinking about having cosmetic surgery for a while and after a lot of research I decided to go for it. I’ll only live once and I want to live my life to the fullest.

“The Hospital Group were brilliant from start to finish. I chose THG because I had heard very good things, especially about their customer service and aftercare. My initial consultation was very thorough which made me feel reassured. My surgeon Dr Zaccheddu was extremely professional and knowledgeable which put me at ease.

“Dr Zaccheddu did a fantastic job and I haven’t had any problems with my nose, which can of course be the risk. I had my splint off after a week and it had settled down within a month or two. My swelling was minimal so I didn’t feel too self-conscious leaving the house while my nose was still healing.

“Since my surgery I have been a happier person and it has really helped my inner confidence. My family and friends were very supportive and have been surprised at the results – much better than expected!

“My advice to anyone considering cosmetic surgery is to go for it. If it really matters to you then don’t hesitate because you won’t regret it, you’ll wish you had done it sooner.”
