1yr 8 Months Post Rhinoplasty - Am So Unhappy. Windsor, GB

*Treatment results may vary

Hello, I had my Rhinoplasty done 1 year 4 months...


I had my Rhinoplasty done 1 year 4 months ago. I had a dorsal hump and the top third of my nose had a visible break which made my nose deviate to one side. I researched and researched surgeons and spent hundreds of pounds on consultations etc. And then I found my surgeon... Who was very confident, agreed with what I wanted to change and he made me feel comfortable and re-assured, so I went ahead and booked my surgery with him. I do not want to mention his name on here just yet.. Because I am still undecided what to do.

After the surgery everything was fine.. I bruised a lot and had a collection of blood in pockets beneath both eyes, which my surgeon said was normal.. And I was continually told that swelling can take up to a year to resolve... So I waited and waited and waited...
And now... Over 1yr on.... And I am so unhappy with the results. I do not like my face anymore. Recently, my friend pointed out that I keep on wearing scarves and then covering my nose and mouth with my scarf because I feel I look deformed now with my nose.

I have spoken to my surgeon... And he is suggesting to take more of my nose away from the bottom to even everything out... However I am petrified to do that to have no nose left. I really regret having it done... Too much bone has been taken away and I really don't know what to do. This operation already cost me £6,000 and I can not afford to be spending that again to fix this and I now don't know who to trust to fix it either... Any suggestions would be very useful.

*Update* Lucian Ion Consultation

I had my consultation with Lucian Ion yesterday 31-10-16. He confirmed that I have a polybeak deformity and suggested that he would build my nose back up using a rib graft, as he doesn't think there is enough Septal cartilage to use. He also suggested that I could have a filler temporarily injected to see if I like the look of my nose built up before going under surgery, to ensure that the outcome is what I would like. However, I am not sure if I want to do this as I have been warned that this injection may cause additional complications.
I really liked Lucian and I felt he listened to what I said and also was keen to understand what exactly it is that I wanted changing and let me speak freely about what I wanted.
Here are the pics of the morphs that he did.

Lucian Ion Revision

Cast Off

I asked for my cast to be taken off a day early as the itching was driving me INSANE.

Here are some pics...

7 weeks Post op

Hello, I haven't done much writing here since my surgery with Lucian as I have been busy with work and life etc! I am now 7 weeks post op and I can see the shape coming in well now. I am still super swollen in the supratip area and also the whole of my tip in general, but actually not as swollen as I thought I would be considering my primary rhino was using a closed approach and my revision was an open approach.. interestingly I've swelled less than my primary rhino... go figure... I had my 4 week post op check-up and also for a round of steroid injections as I was going away and I wanted the swelling to hurry up! I seem to have fallen in LOVE to Neil Med's Sinus Rinse.. I literally can not go a day without it and whilst I was travelling in a dry heat climate, it was an absolute life saver for my sinuses. I hope that the pictures speak for themselves. I am so very very grateful to Lucian, he is truly a master of his craft and I truly, from the bottom of my heart can not thank him or recommend him highly enough. Will update more pics soon and continue tracking my progress! Thanks. X
