I had a botched Rhinoplasty, doctor admitted bad result and said it's due to suturing. He didn't remove any cartilage from tip.

Hi there, I had full nasal reconstruction after a badly botched primary and infection left my nose with no support or function. Charles east fixed it. Ion didn't seem confident and matti was a joke! I heard bad things about Paun and... READ COMMENT

From personal experience I would recommend seeing a surgeon who specialises in rhino. Even then you can't be sure! Have you consulted with any other surgeon? Ion and east in Harley street are two of the top rhino surgeons in the uk .... READ COMMENT
