Surgery Booked with Dr Lucian Ion - London, GB
A 19, nearly 20, year old girl suffering from...
He asked me about how I envisioned my nose to be and I informed him of what I would like to be changed. He then morphed my photos listening to what I wanted and showed me such an elegant nose! I asked him to make it a little less upturned and he listened. One thing about Dr Ion is he is very attentive. He will not force his opinion on you on what he believes your nose should be, he will listen to what you want and tell you whether its realistic or if it could be improved further.
He then explained his techniques and his aftercare. He was so thorough and informative I was left with no questions to ask. I spent a good hour and a half in his office, he really took his time explaining everything.
We both agreed on how my nose good be improved so I'm booked for my surgery on 20th March 2017. I believe his earliest available consultations as of late November are mid February, and his earliest surgery dates are late March/early April.
My quote is £8,600 but because I've opted for an overnight stay in Weymouth Hospital I have to pay an extra £400 bringing my total to £9000. Some may say this is very expensive, but I would rather pay more for that extra piece of mind for altering something that is in the centre of my face.

My surgery is in 21 days, which is coming around so quickly. I remember when I had just booked it in November and it seemed like forever away. I understand his waiting times for surgery have increased a lot but ladies and gents please do not let this put you off. What's a few months wait to have the best surgeon operating on you?
A list of the supplies I have bought are:
* Arnica pills 30cc
* Arnica cream
* Vitamin C & Zinc
* Hot/Cold compress
* Dry mouth spray
* Lip balm
* 4head stick
* Micellar wet wipes
* NeilMed sinus rinse
* V-shape pillow
* Cotton pads, swabs & buds
* Cold humidifier
* Button up clothes
* Microporous tape
* Savlon cream
* Baby toothbrush
In terms of supplements I have already started taking probiotics daily (up to a month before surgery) with included vitamin c and zinc. And I will start taking arnica and bromelain two weeks before the surgery date.
Again, if you want to see pictures or more regular updates give my rhinoplasty instagram a follow @rhiyesplasty - message me if you're not a rhinoplasty account so I know to accept.
I'll update next after my pre-operative appt in two weeks. Feel free to ask me any questions.
Thrilled with my results so far. Lucian Ion is a complete master at his craft and his reviews speak for themselves. His consultations are very thorough and he covers everything - you will be checking off any questions you had before you've even asked them. Dr Ion also seems to be very conscientious and caring, he will not force anything upon you and will always listen to what you have to say. I felt very safe in this doctor's hands for my rhinoplasty procedure and cannot recommend him enough based on my experience so far. His staff and the hospital staff are all lovely too. Delighted with my new nose!
