he didn't say closed, or open for that matter. He said he'd need to think about what the best procedure would be. I'll be seeing him again in october
Sorry I must have been thinking of someone else.
He discussed possibilities of tip refinement, but said he would have to wait until he has a look inside during the surgery before he decides on the best technique.
This is another key point. It's very hard to compare op plans because really it does depend on what they find on the day.
It's also textbook advice to tell a revision patient they may need another revision.
I'll say this although maybe I don't want to - if you were asking about JRJ and Matti for a complicated revision I would say IMHO Matti would be a better choice. That's not because I don't rate JRJ very highly because I do, as do the majority of his happy patients.
However, this forum just doesn't have IM stories for me to form a judgement. He's highly regarded in the rhinoplasty world so he's a very safe bet for a consult and as you know i don't say that about many surgeons.
If you read Sally A's story Matti was prepared to do a lot more to her tip than IM was (and Matti delivered). This is why I asked about open v closed because my guess is that complicated tip work would require an open.
