I went to Mr Woolford after he was highly recommended to me by a couple of acquaintances who had rhinoplasty done by him. But I also did my own independent research to make sure I went to a proper ENT Board Qualified (in the UK specialist register) surgeon in the UK, as there are plenty of people out there doing nose jobs who are not specialist register ENT surgeons and who might give one a pretty looking nose but what good would that be if one cannot breath through it afterwards. I simply wanted the best. I found out that Mr Woolford is a Professor of ENT at a top University Hospital in Manchester with plenty of research publications to his name so he is by all accounts up to date with recent ENT and rhinoplasty developments; this is the sort of professional that I was looking to find to opérate on my nose. As I also have difficulty breathing through my nose so I wanted to make sure the rhinoplasty would not make that worse. Mr Woolford recommended a septorrhinoplasty for me; something only a proper ENT surgeon with aesthetic training/experience could do well IMHO.
I am now two weeks post op. My breathing through the nose is improving all the time and the swelling is already mínimal. The bump at the bridge of the nose has almost gone. Mr Woolford says that as the swelling goes down the nose will look straight and natural and it is already going that way at this early stage since the operation.
