“I had discussed everything what I did not like about my nose. Dr. Bakker informed me well about what to expect. I am very happy with my new nose.”

Frequently asked Questions

Will I have ugly scars?

The scar is on the bottom of the nose, halfway up the bridge of skin between both nostrils. The first weeks it will be red and somewhat visible. It is easy to camouflage. In time it will fade and it will no longer be visible.

Does a nose job hurt?

The treatment is carried out under anesthesia, you do not feel anything. You will experience a little bit of pain after the operation. After surgery tampons are often inserted to prevent bleeding or to provide stability. Depending on the reason, the tampons are removed after 1 day or after 1 week. Removing the tampons is done within seconds. Many people dread this, but afterwards also say that it was not as bad as they thought it would be.

Does the insurance reimburse this procedure?

Sometimes a nose correction is reimbursed by the health insurer. For reimbursement there must be a loss of function, for example reduced breathing. Health insurance company’s never reimbursed a nose correction for cosmetic reasons.

When will I be presentable again?

A bandage is placed over your nose and you have to wear it for 1 week. After 2 weeks, almost all bruises will have disappeared and the face looks normal again. The result of the correction of the bridge of the nose are immediately visible after the bandage has been removed. When correcting the tip of the nose you may expect long-lasting swellings. You will see a little result in the beginning. It takes 1 to 1.5 years before the end result of a nose tip correction is fully achieved. You will of course notice clear improvements along the way.

Plastic surgeon

Doctor Xander R. Bakker

I am an experienced plastic surgeon, specialized in cosmetic surgery. I have been working as a plastic surgeon since 2005. For a long time, I have been working as an all-round plastic surgeon in several leading hospitals. Therefore, I have gained a lot of experience. Plastic surgery of the face has always had my special attention.

My work requires a personal and tailor-made approach. This is what makes my work so fascinating. Every time I ask myself: ‘Will I be able to bring a change, which makes the patient happier?’ It’s always great when this is possible, but sometimes it also means saying ‘no’.

I focus completely on aesthetic plastic surgery. My areas of interest are the face, breast corrections, liposuction and lipofilling of the face and body. By attending many international conferences and courses I stay up-to-date. This way you can be assured that I always deliver state-of-the-art work.
