5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Post Trauma - Reconstruction of Nose Required!

I am currently one of Dr Gwanmesia's patients and wanted to take the time to review my process for people considering using his services. Ahead of even meeting Ivo, he had recognised the type of surgery that I would need to undergo from my short description and so I was already at ease when I went for my consultation. Ivo is incredibly experienced, professional and calming. He took me through what he would do, understood what I wanted and answered any questions I had, whenever I had them! I knew that Ivo was the right person to conduct the complex surgery I needed and booked. My surgery was last week and although nervous (as you would be) Ivo and his team went to every effort to reassure and calm me but more importantly efficiently get me ready for my operation. I was under for 3.5 hours! Which I think reflects that Ivo took the time on my nose to get the result that would ultimately change my life - to be able to breathe properly! Ivo visited me after the surgery and in the morning ahead of being discharged to ensure all was OK and in order for me to leave. I think it is very important to trust the surgeon you choose and I would not trust any other than Ivo to complete anything I would or may need to undergo in the future.

26 Year Old Male: Revision Rhinoplasty - London, GB

I explained to Ivo Gwanmesia, exactly what I wanted. After the first rhinoplasty was such a mess, I was very sceptical about how the results would turn out. But Ivo performed the rhinoplasty I always wanted, and more! Ivo delivered exactly what I asked of him, a true artist in Rhinoplasty.

Mr Gwanmesia was extremely friendly and calming each time I have met with him. He discussed my nose with me at my consultation and listened to what I didn't like about it. He gave me realistic expectations. On the day of my surgery he talked me through the procedure and what he was going to change about my nose. After my surgery he visited my room and made sure I was ok, and informed me that the surgery was a success and again explained the procedure he had performed. He has done a fantastic job, He did exactly what I asked for and has been great throughout the process. He gave me a lot of information about after care which helped me tremendously, and has answered any questions I've asked since having my surgery. At my follow up appointment, 2 months after my surgery, I met with Mr Gwanmesia and discussed my results. Again he was easy to talk to, very friendly and helpful. I would recommend anybody considering rhinoplasty to visit his website at and look at the results he has achieved!

I can only speak very highly of Ivo and have had an excellent experience from my first interaction with him. He spent a significant amount of time discussing what I wanted and how he would achieve this during consultation. This was something other surgeons didn't do or didn't give me confidence in them. During the day of the surgery I wasn't nervous, however Ivo has a very calming persona. The aftercare provided was better than I would have expected and found that should there have been any issues I could have made contact at any time with Ivo. I was unwell unrelated to the surgery, and contacted Ivo late one evening as I was concerned in case the GP needed to be aware of anything. I didn't expect to hear from him until the following day, however he called that evening to see how I was. This was excellent aftercare beyond my expectations. Ivo has also shared my photos pre and post op.

Ivo is very professional and friendly. He has answered my emails promptly and called me at home several times. The price that I have paid includes everything from surgeon and anaesthetic fees, overnight stay in hospital, compression garment. All follow up and aftercare appointments and if I am not happy with results then Ivo will do revision at no further cost to me.

Ivo is a very patient and understanding person who always puts your needs first and makes sure you’re 100% comfortable with his recommendations in regards to the procedure.

Ivo takes his time to listen to you explain your story and empathise with your situation, which makes you feel more at ease emotionally. I can honestly say that my confidents and quality of life has improved thanks to Ivo, and he has made me a very happy person.

Ivo instilled confidence in me from the onset. He was encouraging, understanding and highly professional at all times. His gentle approach gave me reassurance that I could trust him at a time when I felt very vulnerable and unsure of myself and was always available either by phone or email to answer my questions and to give me good sound advice based on up to date knowledge.

On my first consultation with Gwanmesia he completely put me at ease with his calm and understanding professional attitude. We discussed all the the issues i had with my nose after a different surgeon had unfortunately not operated correctly. Gwanmesia...

After a consultation I decided to go with DR Gwanmesia as he made me feel most at ease from the start. He was recommended at first due to being an expert in revision surgery As I had a bodged septo-rhinoplasty on the NHS which needed correction and also to make the nose smaller and straighter. We had a meeting prior surgery to discuss what I wanted from the surgery and he made suggestions and...
