5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Wholehearted Recommendation: Dr. J. Andrew Bartlett -Richmond, BC

It took me more than 60 years to act upon my inner desire for a less prominent, less bumpy nose. Finally in the summer of 2013 I decided to seek elective nasal surgery because my nose had become further disfigured as a result of treatment for skin cancer in 2010. Once I made this decision, I knew immediately that I would consult Dr. J. Andrew Bartlett. Although I had never been his patient...

More handsome and better breathing!

I am very thorough when doing research and I am glad I did my homework... Dr. Bartlett was genuinely interested in my satisfaction and was very patient with all my questions. Every time I went to see him he repeated to me the process. He performed Rhinoplasty and offered great advice, which I am glad I followed because my nose looks great! Not to mention that I can breath better than ever...

Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Result! - Richmond, BC

I had a rhinoplasty by Dr. Bartlett exactly one year ago, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! The procedure FAR exceeded my expectations. Of course there has been some swelling in the past months, but now that I can fully see the results, his reputation definitely lived up to the end result. He was highly recommended by my cousin, who had a successful operation with him in the past;...

Exceeded Expectations - 100% Satisfied

I recently had a rhinoplasty performed by Dr. Bartlett and the entire experience exceeded my expectations. First of all, I am delighted with the outcome – I am now 6 months post-surgery and my nose looks wonderful – exactly as I had hoped it would look. In addition, Dr. Bartlett and his staff treated me with patience and respect in all of my interactions with them. I never felt rushed and...

Bye- Bye Blues - Vancouver, BC

Very Genuine. The final end result was better than the computer imaging that was projected. : )

Rhinoplasty - Richmond, BC

I recently had a revision rhinoplasty with Dr. Bartlett and I couldn't be happier with the result. Dr. Bartlett recognized immediately what needed to be corrected, carefully explained the procedure, and produced a computer image of what I should expect after the surgery. The result is exactly what was produced in the computer image. I honestly wasn't expecting such an awesome outcome - Dr....

Late 20's, Female - Much Needed Revision Rhinoplasty for Aesthetic & Breathing Purposes - Richmond, BC

What struck me upon my first consultation with Dr. Bartlett was how quickly he spotted my concern; but what was striking was that, despite having spent virtually YEARS staring at my nose in the mirror, taking pictures from different angles, and trying to convince myself that the flaws I saw were not "that noticeable", the doctor, in a matter of seconds, articulated the ACTUAL issues my nose had, and I could not believe I had not picked up on them during my countless hrs of OCD inspections. The doctor explained to me how he could extract cartilage from inside my nose to reconstruct the tip, and counter the "pinched" look of my deflated nostrils. This cartilage grafting would undo the concavity of my nostrils, allowing me to breath through my nose without conscious exertion, and it would also yield a much more natural nose. And I must say, although I fully heard and took to heart the doctor's projections of the outcome (no before and after office photosphopping needed to inspire trust), actually having seen the final outcome I was blown away. The doctor mentioned how I had practically next to no cartilage left from my previous rhinoplasty, and I could not believe how naturally he carved and reconstructed my new nose! My nose is now far more symmetric, the nostrils have gone from narrow slits to very natural looking oval openings (when viewed from underneath), the scars are very minimal and healing quite well, and my nose is fuller, more natural, structurally supportive, and I'm very very happy with the outcome. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Bartlett. In fact, do not entertain risking your health or beauty to a less qualified doctor, no matter how much money you think you'd save! Thank you Dr. Bartlett. Sincerely thank you!

I had a curved, over-projected nose & deviated septum - Rhinoplasty - Vancouver, BC

I specifically sought out a plastic surgeon who not only specializes in rhinoplasty but also consistently receives positive reviews regarding this complex procedure. Having found none in Alberta, I looked to Vancouver & found Dr. J.A. Bartlett. I booked the surgery at our consultation meeting in August & had the procedure less than two weeks ago (mid October). I had a curved, over-projected...

110% Worth It! - Richmond, BC

I have always been insecure with my nose. I booked a consultation with Dr. Bartlett last July, who made me feel completely comfortable about the procedure and knew exactly what I wanted. Although they were completely booked for the summer, his wonderful receptionist found a spot and booked me in for the following week. I had open rhinoplasty, and even from the moment the cast came off I...
