Growing Up, gaining independence: information for families of young people with a learning disability

At Great Ormond Street Hospital we encourage and support young people to become as independent with their healthcare as they can be. Some people might always need someone else to help them manage their healthcare and to make health-related decisions for them. How these decisions are made and who can make them changes as people get older.

Open tip rhinoplasty for children with craniofacial disorders

The bridge of the nose is made of bone but the rest of the nose is a flexible tissue called cartilage. A rhinoplasty is an operation to reshape the bone and cartilage in the nose. An open tip rhinoplasty is one where incisions are made to access inside the nostrils. Nose re-shaping is common in children with craniofacial conditions as their nose may be ‘beaked’ or skewed to one side. Some children may have a bifid (split) nose. This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains the open tip rhinoplasty operation for children with craniofacial disorders. It explains how to prepare your child for surgery as well as what to expect in hospital afterwards.
