I've found my surgeon!! Just had my consult with Mr Paul Glossop in Wolverhmapton & I knew by the end he was the surgeon for me. We chatted about what I don't like & he made me feel v comfortable. Normally I get nervous talking about my nose but I really felt at ease. He was very clear in his surgical plan & emphasised that my surgery requires only v small changes but that will make a good overall difference to my face.
He wants to correct my slightly deviated septum, reduce my hump & rotate the tip. He also wanted to cut a muscle that would drop my upper lip (apparently my smile is slightly gummy) but I told him I like my smile & am happy with this 'flaw'. He agreed with me & we talked about the definition of beauty, asymmetry of the face, renaissance art...lots of things! 50% of his ops are on Asians as Wolverhampton has a large Asian population (I'm Asian) & he's been doing
since'81, at a rate of approx 150 a year. He mentioned that he trained under Tony Bull. The cost of the op was approx £3000. He really took his time in the consult (I was the last appt) & at the end, he even drove me to the train station lol! Lovely guy, nice receptionist & I booked my op there and then for mid-dec.
I will let you all know how I get on and many thanks to FoxyB84 for mentioning him on this site in the first place. I'll give my final judgement on him after my op but so far, he seems v competent & I feel assured. When we were talking about the cheap price, he told me that a lot of his patients are just normal ppl from the West Midlands who don't have bags of money, e.g. schoolteachers & he felt uncomfortable charging an inflated price. I also noticed he still does NHS work so hasn't completely sold his soul to the devil that is private practice!
Any more q's, feel free to drop me a post.
