26 Year Old with a Dorsal Hump, Droopy Tip - Dr Rajan Uppal

Dr Rajan Uppal performed a life changing rhinoplasty on me and I could not be any happier. He has surpassed my every expectation leaving me with a nose that I had previously dreamt of but never in a million years though would be mine!

The worst part of the surgery is the week immediately after it where it is difficult to breath through your nose and it feels like a bad cold. The pain, for me was not that bad and manageable with pain killers.

I have hated my nose for as long as I can remember. I always despised the idea of surgery though whilst growing up due to all the horror stories and surgeries that “went wrong”. By Age 24 I became seriously conscious about my nose, I used to retake photos due to the angle of my nose, I used to pout rather than show of my perfectly straight teeth because when I smiled, my nose turned down and I felt like I had a beak instead of a nose. Over the years I had also been on the receiving end of some nasty comments about my nose – the funny thing is my natural nose was not hideous, it had a dorsal hump and a droopy tip but it was enough to make me very self-conscious and over the years decrease my confidence. Age 25 – I decided a rhinoplasty was the only way that I would have a good quality of life. I am a young woman with my whole career and life in front of me. I am yet to be married and become a mum and I was not willing to let my lack of confidence, due to my nose ruin my life. I did extensive research online and whittled it down to 2 surgeons partly thanks to Real Self and Tatlers. The 2 surgeons I decided to research further were Charles East and Rajan Uppal. I found a bad review about Charles East and it was enough to personally put me off. So I decided to book a consultation with Dr Uppal. That being said, in my mind I had told myself if you do not feel comfortable at the consultation then a rhinoplasty is not for you and you stick to contouring your nose with make-up. I went to the consultation where Mr Uppal was so welcoming and paid attention to detail about what I wanted and what I hated about my nose. However, he also pointed out the good things about my nose. He took some pictures and gave me some computer predicted images of what my nose could potentially look like after the operation. I was amazed, the predictions were stunning and everything I had wanted (bearing in mind Dr Uppal was the ONLY Dr I had a consultation with). So I proceeded to book my rhinoplasty and added a nose peel on 4 week prior to my surgery due to my slightly thick skin. To cut a very long story short, I went in for my surgery on 23rd September 2016 at the BMI Princess Margaret Hospital and all of Mr Uppal’s team were amazing and professional. I woke up from the surgery and when Mr Uppal did his rounds he showed me pictures of my nose that were taken just before the cast was placed on my nose immediately after the procedure, and they looked great. I went home and over the course of the next week I stayed in touch with Mr Uppal and his amazing PA. I went back on 30th September 2016 to have the cast off and all I can say is, I was overwhelmed with the result because my nose looked amazing. In fact Mr Uppal surpassed my expectations and achieved a result that looked even better than the computer predictions. I was so emotional my eyes actually welled up because finally I looked at my face and liked what I saw even with my nose still being slightly swollen and my eyes still being bruised. I am due to have my 6 week check up with Mr Uppal but so far praise be to God, my healing is going very well. From the bottom of my heart I cannot recommend Dr Uppal enough as he is a tremendous and highly skilled Dr. Not only is he very humble and approachable, but he takes pride in his work and genuinely cares about his patients. If I ever considered another cosmetic surgery, no matter how large or small I will without a doubt be returning to Mr Uppal because I not only trust him, I have seen first-hand that even after the surgery he still cares and his patients happiness gives him a sense of self-worth which I think is a very rare quality in Drs nowadays.
