5 out of 5 stars Revision Rhinoplasty

Mr Ion Amazing Revision! 5* - London, GB

Show More Mr Ion is a very talented highly skilled surgeon. I highly recommend him to anyone considering rhinoplasty themselves. It's a very difficult surgery and surgeons skill vary greatly as I discovered to my cost. If you are going to do it then choose the best. Mr Ion has not just given me the pretty nose of my dreams he really has saved my life.

Show More Lucian Ion is such an amazing man, I can't believe after only two consultations with him, Mr Ion managed to give me my absolute dream nose! He has worked absolute wonders and I am over the moon with the results already!! He is a very nice and understanding individual, who makes you feel welcome straight away. I could not recommend any other surgeon more! He is brilliant!

4 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

4/5 for open rhinoplasty based on final result after postop abscess and reoperation.

Show More I am re-writing this review and changing my star ratings for Mr Ion from 5 stars for handling the postop complication to 4 stars based on the final outcome of my nose 10 weeks after his first open rhino and 2 weeks after his revision rhino, as I am now permanently left with wonky very asymmetric nostrils unless I pay for another revision and into the second week of a further 3 weeks prescribed doxycycline experienced side effects (anxiety, melancholy and vivid doxy nightmares) which I googled can be associated with longterm use of this particular antibiotic. When confronted with a postop rhinoplasty abscess at 2.5 weeks, Mr Ion saw me same day for I&D, treated with weeks of antibiotics, and subsequently took the time to see me on a Sunday to reexamine and explained why he had used permanent sutures and at 2 months postop took me back to theatre for exploration, restructuring the rib cartilage and replacing all permanent sutures with the longest lasting absorbable suture, PDS. He listened and understood my anxiety over possible future infections with permanent sutures and agreed to take me back to replace with PDS, which dissolves in approximately 6 months. He did not charge for his fee or the anaesthetist's saying he would cover this himself and I paid the hospital overnight stay fee. The next morning after the operation, he sat down and explained that the infection had not taken away any rib cartilage but instead had caused the base cartilage graft to move which then dropped my tip. He repositioned the base cartilage and the projection is improved or as he put it he has left me with an even better nose! The clinical dilemma is will 6 months with PDS before it dissolves be enough time for my collagen to grow to hold the grafts in place. Fingers crossed the stability remains after 6 months! I am hopeful as why else would some surgeons use dissolvable sutures and some use permanent. There does not seem to be a perfect answer, which explains the ongoing debate among plastic surgeons over suture material inside the nose. Mr Ion gets 4 stars for aesthetic appearance in rhinoplasty (as my nostrils are now obviously wonky when before I had perfect symmetrical nostrils), however he is attentive and takes time to listen and address concerns of the patient , provides postop care and follow up and a willingness to see it through the end with the patient. Unfortunately I have not been left with a perfect nose. I have used a pseudonym for my real name on this forum.

22 Year Old Male, Third Rhinoplasty (Revision) - London, UK

Show More Mr. Ion struck me as a nice person, as well as a responsible and knowledgeable surgeon. I felt he was honest and realistic about my situation. I will be leaving for my country tomorrow. Over the next following four months, or so, I will be communicating with Mr. Ion by phone/Skype/e-mail. Hope my review is of some help to some of you out there.
