aresenal I am not defending Matti, so you got that wrong. I am going by my experience, reviews and facts. I am not siding anyone.

That last bit about upturn wasn't directed at you.

That's good news, Amy, and I'm glad it's worked out for you. Rhinoplasty, as I said, is a highly emotional topic, like politics lol.
I'm happy to be proven wrong about Ion having fake and/or upturn noses, but I just don't see it and I will defend him just like I am sure you defend Matti.

Matti was able to improve my nose functionally and cosmetically so I can say that about him at this point during my post op because it worked for me. And I know not all Matti's noses are perfect but every surgeon has some bad noses.

I am sympathetic towards those who's breathing is not as good as it was. I only saw 1 post by Emillie I think she said her breathing is not good as it was. Did anyone ask here what she did about that, did she go back to Mr Matti, mind you she has a beautiful nose now, really amazing result. Not that it was bad before but just looks so much better now.

Anyway wish everyone good luck, hope your noses turn out the way you want.

arsenal you got some serious issue dear and you need to get them sorted lol...instd of coming onto this forum and ranting when a member gives advice from exp to another, u have already been told off by one of the moderators.

At my consultation with LI i did not make the assumption about his skills about functional VS cosmetic but he told me so himself that his a plastic surgeon and that is his specialty not functional..now now if anyone takes offense of that they clearly need to go and get themselves a life!!!

i've had a revision with Ion just two weeks ago and he noticed my breathing wasn't great and said he would try and improve, but if It wasn't enough he recommended seeing an ENT if I wanted that corrected.

So far my breathing is better but early days, not sure I would see an ENT as I've put up with the breathing this long I've got used to it.

It's irrelevant imo.

More interested in how long they have been doing rhino for, how many, their reputation etc.

I had surgery with IM, he's an ent, across the road was Matti, a ps. Both had 2 or 3 decades experience in rhino, which is what was important to me, not what they originally qualified as.

That's also true if you look abroad, Guyuron ps, Trenite ent are thought of highly. There are also incompetent surgeons on both sides two.

hi there,

ENT surgeons focus more on functional and not cosmetic side of things, I know this from personal experience. I was offered Revision septo-RP on NHS by an ENT specialist, he was a nice as a person and and specifically specialised in the nose side of things. But it was not until I started doing my research on Rhinoplasty I realised you need a plastic surgeon who can deal with both appearance and functions of nose. That is another reason why I was influenced to chose Mr Matti. He does other surgeons also and is known to do them well also but I would defo say as long as you know what you want and you both have the same and a clear understanding of what you want and what realistically is achievable given the nose you have than you should be ok. One thing I will say about Julian Rowe-Jones that he did a nose that was pure negligence, I do not know how that could have even been an accident, the nose was so deformed I was horrified. The lady is on this forum and has photos of her nose. Luckly she managed to get it sorted and it looks like a nose now but before it was really messed up, that I can not even express how messed up. I think is was user called PN. Bless her she must have gone through hell and back, I know what it feels like. I am at the same time not saying that Mr Matti is perfect and has not had any bad outcomes at all but he does a lot of noses and a lot of revision cases. A lot of people on this forum =, except two I have come across have been very happy with there results. The two best people I could fine in England were Matti and Lucion, but Matti does more revisions and does both functional and cosmetic. Lucion does more cosmetic and minimum functional. There are a few other surgerons I have heard if Ian Mackay, Charles ..., Tim woolford (i think thats his name) these surgeons tend to do more primaries and some do not touch complex noses and will only offer to do simple cases. Just research on all of these people and find the answers yourself to make sure you made the correct decision yourself.

Good luck wish you all the best.

Consult with Julian Rowe-Jones, he's the best because he only does conservative rhinoplasty!!

P.S. I have no surgical experience with this doctor, it's just what I've been told by a poster on this forum...

'Plastic surgeon' and 'ENT Surgeon' are just job titles. What you need to focus on is their experience of doing the operation you want and your confidence in their ability to give you the result you want. Don't forget that ENT surgeons don't just do rhinoplasty - they do other operations (tonsils, ears etc) too just in the same way that a plastic surgeon does other ops (breasts, tummy etc) too. I think you just need to have the consultations and see who feels 'right' for you and try to forget about the politics between different specialties.

Revision, ENT or Plastic Surgeon?

Postby se01ps » Sun Apr 20, 2014 11:45 am

Hello forum, I didn't expect/want to find myself here again yet here I am!

My primary in Jan 12 with JD was not a success, there may be slight improvements internally but overall I am not happy. There were also issues with what was agreed and what he did when I was under general anaesthetic.

Anyway, I am trying to choose the best revision surgeon. For my primary I thought I was in safe hands as he was BAAPS/BAPRAS etc. how wrong! I think the problem was perhaps he didn't carry out enough nose procedures or specialise in this area. He was more a general plastic surgeon doing noses, breast implants, liposuction, and all the other major cosmetic procedures, a kind of jack of all trades.

This time around I am consulting a well known plastic surgeon on this forum next week. I am also going to consult a well known ENT surgeon. I have seen examples of the plastic surgeon's work and read a lot of happy patient reviews on this forum and on the web.

My worry is although the plastic surgeon does a lot of noses, again as a plastic surgeon he does a lot of other procedures and not just noses.

The ENT surgeon specialises in noses and is a consultant at Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital. The Royal National Throat, Nose and Ear Hospital (RNTNEH) is the UK's largest ear, nose and throat hospital. It is recognised internationally as a centre of excellence.

I guess it may become clearer after my consultations who to choose but what are your thoughts on this? Who would you trust for a revision surgery? Plastic or ENT surgeon? Any feedback from those with experience would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
