  • To open blocked nasal passages when suffering from disturbed sleep, snoring or sleep apnea

Regardless of the reason you undergo rhinoplasty, if mistakes are made during surgery, or during your recovery, which cause an injury or illness, you may be entitled to No Win No Fee compensation for medical negligence.
