My Nose! - Manchester, GB

one week post op

Not sure if the bridge is still too high. The nurse said at this stage if I am happy with the shape that's good as this won't change??? I feel like if the swelling goes down overall I will still he unhappy as the bridge looks high and protruding between my eyes. Kind of like a Klingon. On the other hand, I like the tip as it is so am sure I will only be happier with that once the definitiongegets better. Just worried about the hump in relation to the rest... Anyone had the same thing?

Hey! Had my nose done by me sleiter on sat...so still looking pretty battered and swollen... Scabs are the only thing annoying me at the moment...these are interfering with the stitches I have under my nostrils...I think your nose looks great and changes the whole look of your face! It's scary to do it..get my splint off Friday! Hoping it's all Ok!

Hi I am due to have surgery with Harley medical group Manchester tomorrow at bridge water- my surgeon is Mr A. Khan Aurakzai. I wish I was having dr sleiter now but he was never offered to me! Does anyone know anything about mr khan aurakzai?? I actually rang the clinic today to cancel last minute due to anxiety and they said as it's so last minute I will have to go in to the hospital tomorrow and tell mr khan and the nurses there that I am too anxious to go ahead and he will cancel it for me- otherwise I will lose all my money!! Please please anyone get back to me on my surgeon Mr A. Khan Aurakzai with any info as all I've found online is a couple of bad reviews and none good!

I don't know anything about your surgeon sorry but when I researched dr sleiter I felt the same as there was nothing out there. I was even thinking of pulling out whilst waiting for surgery as it was delayed but I am pleased now xx

Thanks for replying! Did you have open or closed rhinoplasty? Your results are great :) I really don't know what to do and u only have til morning to decide! Did de sleiter show you pics of before and after? Or was it in your initial consultation you were shown pics? Because I was only shown pics of rhinoplasty before and afters in my initial consultation with Ashley and none were his work all she had was a pic of a facelift he did! He didn't show me any pics in my consult with him :S xx

I had packing in for three days and norm is one he sed cos I had a lot done to my bridge. There was no pain at all I managed to sleep jus bruising got me down. Still got it xx

I am supposed to be having bones broken and tip done too along with alar base nostril reduction. I wonder why I wasn't offered de slept er like everyone else on this thread :S I literally do not know whether to go through with it in the morning or not- or maybe postpone and have dr sleiter instead. Hmmmm xx

I don't know really all I can say is I am pleased at the moment xx

Maybe it's because you are having closed rhinoplasty as I'm not sure whether dr sleiter does them or are you having open rhinoplasty? Just a guess tho. X

Hi thanks Laura, I am having open rhinoplasty - are you having open rhino with dr sleiter? X

Hi marijaye, I didn't get a choice, the nurse just said Dr sleiter would he doing it at my initial consultation. I had closed rhinoplasty. You should definitely be able to ask to see examples of his work but if the surgery is tomorrow I don't know if he will have them with him? X

I'm having my consultation with him this week so yes if I like him and he thinks what I want is achievable etc. All the doctors at HMG have had to a lot of procedures to work for them so I think you should be fine, it seems a reputable company x

How are your results jacq? X

Hi Jacq Yeah I doubt he'll have some at the hosp :( I rang yesterday to see if they had any and they didn't but said they'd ask him and try email me some but never did- so I rang today asking if I could postpone cause of anxiety but they said I would lose all my money as it's short notice :( so I have to go in hosp to check in for surgery in morning and discuss it with mr khan and then he should cancel it all for me if I tell him I'm too anxious etc. - I hope they are right! I feel bad if he's no other surgery booked tomorrow! I might even go through with it yet I don't know- just feel sick with anxiety! If it's cancelled I will re-book with dr sleiter- how were your results with him? X

Also- I didn't have a nurse consultation, mine was with a patient co-ordinater who used to work for MYA called ashley- she's lovely but it would have been nice to see a nurse too x

I think me khan is new to HMG he's taken over dr Helena singerova who left last year to go back to Prague. Bit concerned as he's left the last 16 years off his cv :S even the fact he had a clinic on Harley street isn't on there which I've since learnt he used pip implants and the company went bust - not sure if that was the reason. :S x

I'm fairly pleased with my result, defo an improvement but kind of think the bridge should be filed down a bit more. It would worry me if he has left info off his cv but I don't really know how that works. Also if they said they would send you stuff and they haven't then they haven't done their best to put you at ease so you could say you want more time to see pics. At the end of the day if you are not comfortable you don't have to go through with it but I don't know where you stand with your money, check the contract and let us know how you get on, all the best xxx

I'm glad you are pleased with your result :) and perhaps the bridge is still swollen- either way it's best to have too little filed down than too much :) Thankyou I will let you know how it goes- hope I find the right words to say to him! Xxx

Hey marijaye, how did it go today? Did you go ahead with it or cancel? Either way, hope you are ok xx

Yes had mind done I am on day 10 and still very bruised. Everyone saying it looks better my bridge seems very narrow from front on even with swelling and my tip is very big in photos. Just inpatient now as hopefully feel better when bruising goes down. I am pleased it is very subtle change but from side profile I do feel like a Klingon like someone else said so hoping that comes right as well x

Hi nazxx and jacq13. I have a consultation with dr sleiter in 2 weeks. Nazxx how did you surgery go with him? Jacq13 how is your nose now? I think it looks great and I can't see a bump after in your pics. Does mr sleiter do lots of rhinoplasty? X

That's great news about the bridge and the rest should go down soon. Let me know how you get on. Are you back at work now? Would you say that I would need more than 10 days off work even with the makeup with people to not notice. Shame the bruising takes so long to go. I have heard people mention arnica tabs. Was dr sleiter nice and did you have it at the bridgewater hospital? X

Ye dr sleither is really nice he came to see my partner after the op to let him know how it went. Staff at bridge water also lovely . My nose is very subtle change before if was twisted to the side deviated septum and hump in bridge. Dr sleiter said he had to doors with to bridge so I had to keep packs in from sun night till wed so that didn't help with swelling and bruising. Like I sed still quite bruised even make up doesn't cover it I am due back in work Monday but don't know how I cover it. It doesn't hurt one bit either just uncomfortable. I took arnica before and still an and putting arnica cream on ot feel free to ask anything I would have like someone to ask I don't regret it at all x
