Primary Rhinoplasty with Mr Matti -London

So i had my first consultation with mr matti at...

So i had my first consultation with mr matti at harley street clinic on 12th november 2013 and have to say he is a lovely man and i could tell he was good as he identified the three things which bothered me about my nose. I have quite a small face and my nose i believe is prominent due to the slight nasal bump and width. Mr Matti was very complimentary of the rest of my features and was honest. He said i would look much better and my nose will fit better if i went through with the operation but even if i didnt i would still look attractive which was very sweet. However, as i am sure most people on here are paranoid about certain parts of their face i am about my nose and really want it done.

After much research and reviews read on here and other sites i found mr matti was one of the best in the UK which is where i am from. although he is a bit pricey i do believe u get what u pay for in life. The total cost including possible overnight stay in london is going to be £8000. I am new to this site in terms of writing reviews and looking for anyone who has had a similar operation with mr matti and their experiences.

mr matti will be doing my operation under GA and closed approach which brings me to my next question i dont know how nostrils and width can be reduced with closed approach which i will definately ask at next appointment. but another fear and guess the main one i have is going under GA, i feel so scared and think what if i never wake up as a i have a little girl. Any support and advise will be greatly appreciated

GA really scared

Guys my op is getting closer and closer and all i am obsessing about is the general anaesthesia i am absolutely petrified help :-(((

2 weeks left

Well i am now officially 8500 down ...operation is on the 16th june and i feel like crying ...i am so nervous about being put to sleep and thinking i am not gonna wake up or make it back from the op this community has given me so much support any further comments to put my mind at a bit of ease will be appreciated but i dont think i have ever been so anxious :-(

Getting closer

16th not far off i am really scared

Today is the day

So I am getting admitted later today at 11 am I feel so sick with anxiety and can't sleep feel teary and emotional I don't know if this is normal. Any support will be much appreciated just don't know what to expect and lying here with my little girl thinking will I ever see her again

i done it 3 days post opp

So I had my op on Monday. Today is day 3 and I feel hardly any pain in my nose but my head is banging and I feel very nauseous can't eat much in fact hardly anything as I keep being sick :-(, is this normal and if so how long does this last

The op itself didn't bother me don't remember anything considering I was so anxious but yes i feel sick and dreadful now :-(

Thanks for posting the pics... would you be able to post a before pic of you facing the camera? just wondering how wide it was before the op because it still looks quite wide- this is most probs the swelling though.

Any chance you could post a pic of your nostrils so we can see the scars? I saw a girl who has had a very bad nose job and her scars looked terrible, it was so obvious because you could see a line where they had been cut... thanks

Hi again, how is recovery going, has the swelling gone down? You stated that matti said he'd use a 'closed approach' did he do that? because from your pic it looks like he has cut the columella..?

Hey thanks for the comment yes he did use the closed approach I'll have to put a clearer pic up as I can see what u mean ....that's probably the sticky tape and bruising lol ...swelling is still there I'll be two weeks post op tom...been a breeze in terms of recovery I still have some bruising which I cover with makeup if I go out but so far so good

Hi, im wondering how matti reduced your nostrils and the width of your nose with a closed approach? I have a similar nose and considering him although I do not want to be left with scars after surgery....

Hey hun funny u ask that as I asked him same thing initially as I couldn't work it out he must have cut the nostrils to bring them in as I had stitches but he does it in such a way the scar pretty much will be in the fold of skin so u cannot hardly see it and with some bio oil or scar serum it will go completely within few months X but u will have tiny scars but seriously u can't even see them x

Anesthesia was something I was really scared of too. I was really nervous I would not wake up, and even went as far as half-jokingly telling my husband my wishes before I went for surgery. I'm not really sure what to tell you, because the risk IS there, but it is small, especially if you are young and previously healthy. Has anyone in your family ever had a reaction to anesthesia? Family history plays a role and if people in your immediate family had surgery and were fine, your chance of being fine just increased. I was paranoid, because I work in the medical field in an ICU, and we do get freak accidents sometimes from surgeries gone wrong. With that said, plastic surgery is a little different, because they mostly deal with younger and healthier individuals. If it makes you feel better - in 20+ years my surgeon has operated on people, he has never had anyone die on his OR table or as a complication from his surgery. When I finally awoke from my rhinoplasty last week, the first thing i said was "I''m alive!" LOL You will be fine
