After many years living with a substandard result from my previous rhinoplasty. I had spent many years researching and consulting with numerous Plastic surgeons who specialised in revision feminizing rhinoplasty from Thailand , USA, Korea, France, Spain and lastly the UK. I was very specific and wanted a Classic retroussé nose. Which is universally regarded as classically very elegant and extremely beautiful.
After my previous bad Facial feminisation result I needed an extremely talented. Surgically brilliant well regarded Max reconstructive plastic surgeon.
I narrowed the expert down to Chris Inglefield who has very extensive experience in Facial feminisation surgery. He firstly requires prospective patients to have pre operative surgical scans and facial mapping.
Which is a very scientific and an extremely helpful tool for planing your facial features mask to within an accuracy of 0.25 mm, to meet the social markers of which gender you feel is your most authentic. Beautiful features of either gender are a scientific mathematical equation "The golden ratio".
I found this to be extremely helpful in the planning and conveying my expected surgical outcome. This is done by the Cosmetic Imaging Studio who are independent and only provide its services to Consultant Aesthetic, Cosmetic, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and Aesthetic Physicians, who have referred their patients to us as part of the consultation. These Consultant Physicians are members of BAAPS, BAPRAS, and GMC registered.
I discussed the proposed surgical plan with Mr Inglefield on many pre operative consultations. He is an extremely intelligent and is highly regarded within his peers in the medical community however I did not find him intimidating or condescending, as I sadly often have found with previous so called expert surgeons. He has a very warm and kindly way that put me at total ease. I am not the most easy of patients to deal with, I have extremely high standards in every area of my life and I expect the same from any other professional who's services I utilise. I am also very litigious which Mr Inglefield was fully aware of as I find that it really tells you a lot about there capabilities as a surgeon.
Mr Inglefield surgical practice is a centre of excellence . It is a town house in London's world renowned prestigious private medical district of Harley Street.
Please be aware that this surgery is extremely expensive and Mr Inglefield's fees are reassuringly expensive. I sadly regret that I had not meet Mr Inglefield earlier as I would not have had to learn the hard way.
Please if you are considering this highly specialised surgical intervention do your homework and check your surgeons credentials .
Revision surgery is not much fun it is very costly, emotionally, physical down time and lastly financially.
If you are going to do it do it right first time !
