  1. There are Facebook groups that are much more active now
  2. Hi Lumi, I've consulted with him and was pretty impressed, but have not gone forward with a revision. I am still to meet another surgeon before I make my decision. Is there anything specific you wanted to know? (I believe fishlips has had her revision with Dr. Walsh and last time I heard was very happy)
  3. Has anyone had a consultation with Dr. Jumeau? I can see that he has two pictures on his Instagram with primary surgery examples, but wanted to know if anyone has seen his revision work?
  4. From what I have gathered, Dr. Marcells is amazing at revisions. I am also looking at lengthening and slight derotation and will see what his assessment will be.
  5. Thanks for asking this question - I'm interested in hearing any experiences as well. The only thing I've been able to find has been on RateMD, a reviewer stated that they had a minor 'dip' in their bridge after surgery.
  6. I think if you're extremely self conscious of the appearance of your nose, and go to an expert doctor who has proven to have consistently good and natural results, then it can be very much worth it. If someone only wants a very minor change to their nose shape, then no, the risk is much too high, and it is the finesse work that is most difficult.
  7. I haven't personally had a procedure with Dr. Shahidi, but have read in other forums that the fee is approximately $18k and his wait list for a consult is at about 12 months now. In terms of straightening the septum, this is often done together with rhinoplasty. I'd reccomend finding a surgeon who has an ENT qualification combined with plastic/aesthetic surgery experience.
  8. I've been investigating surgeons that are the best for complex revisions in Australia as I badly need a third surgery. After feedback from actual patients from RealSelf, Facebook etc and looking at qualifications, involvement in training and learning and a key interest in revision rhino, the only surgeon I would consider is Dr. George Marcells. The consultation waiting times are very long, approximately six months. Another surgeon who is younger but has had training under Dr. Frankel in the US is Dr. Choroomi. He also has great feedback and often consults with Dr. Marcells on cases. I am waiting for my consults next year, and will update my experience.
  9. bump. Really interested in hearing others experiences with Dr. Marcells or Dr. Choroomi
  10. Any further feedback? I've booked in to see Marcells (next year) and want to see Nettle also. This will will be my third rhino. I can see Nettle seems to do very nice and natural surgeries, per his website and RealSelf review photos. Marcells noses also look amazing, and somewhat more angular? I wonder if anyone has been to Marcells and got a 'softer' looking nose (i.e. not a very pointed tip)?
  11. Hi Birdy, I'm sorry to hear about all the trouble you are having after two surgeries. If its a deviated septum that is blocking the air flow, then an ENT should be able to assist and form the least invasive plan in rectifying. Do you know if your turbinates were reduced during the surgery? (I would try and get the surgical report to try and understand what was done). I also had a revision and also appear to still have issues in my left nostril air flow, and now a very runny nose in addition to aesthetic issues Too many stories I have read on RealSelf about surgeons having two, three or even four goes at trying to rectify issues on the same patient. Healing problems do occur, but i would get multiple opinions before going back to the same surgery. I hope you find sone answers to identify the issue.
  12. Moss is on another planet. What he is charging is in line with internationally recognised rhinoplasty specialists that do hundreds of rhinos a year (impossible to get that experience and volume in Aus). Greensmiths fees are around $15k onwads (at least that was my experience)
  13. Hi Anubisxlll, That is very disheartening to hear. Did you have your surgery locally or overseas? Have you had your nose reviewed by any surgeons or doctors to rule out that there is no infection? It might be worthwhile having a consult with an ENT just to make sure the structure of the nose is not what is causing issues. Swelling wise - depending on skin thickness it can take a while to completely heal. If it's also hard to the touch - I'd be asking your surgeons office for a surgical report to try and understand if it's due to grafting. Don't lose hope - I am sure there is a surgeon that can help you to resolve the issues you are facing. Are you comfortable naming who you had surgery with?
  14. I'm so sorry to hear that you've not received the results you've wanted after so many surgeries. I know it must be extremely emotionally exhausting. Everything I've read online does state that Davis is one of the top revision surgeons in the US. I have considered him for a revision, but with covid, its unlikely to be any time soon. He is the only doctor who personally answered my queries via email Did he outline the issues that might have caused the change in shape? Is he going to charge you a whole new surgery fee? If you are questioning whether this is the right step, then I would suspect there is enough doubt that its worthwhile to really investigate alternative surgeons, to see if any others can instill more confidence. There is a girl on Real Self who has had revision surgeries with almost every high profile surgeon in the US and is still having issues. Have you had consultations with any doctors abroad or locally since? (Would love to know how you are progressing).
  15. Has anyone had a rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty with Philip Michael? I can see he has several ads promoting him and seems to have positive reviews (but I no longer trust online reviews with no photo support to back them up). Would love to hear from some patients of his.
