    mikk got a reaction from oli_ in Rhinoplasty in Australia or overseas; recovery info too   
    The 3 I have shortlisted for appointments    (Although I wont know for sure till I see  patient before and afters in the consult)    are:

    Howard Webster 

    Patrick Walsh

    Jeremy Richardson

    Someone else may have come up with different names, and they could be right as well.    This is just my own research.

    mikk got a reaction from Zara L in Revison with Dr Patrick Walsh?   
    Ive consulted with him before about strictly ENT matters (breathing).   He is very kind and a great doctor.   I noted also hes ranked #1 on ratemd for all ENTS in Melb, which is a patient review site.

    I've never heard anything bad about him,  but its seems extremely difficult to find reviews from patients online who had a rhino (primary or revision) with him.   This may be due to him him being relatively young (in surgeon terms anyway), and recently setting up practice.    In fact,  they don't even show you before and after examples on his website. 

    I was informed the only way to see before and afters is to visit his clinic for a consult, which I plan on doing.   

    I am looking to get a revision, and have him earmarked as 1 of 3 surgeons I will be consulting with.

    Looking forward to how you find the consult as well!

    Anyone else find it odd that 5 people who have posted positive reviews on this post have only posted once and also have only logged in on the day they signed up, and haven't logged in since...? ? I'm sensing some fake reviews here. Red flag!

    mikk got a reaction from AshleighP in Dr Nettle or Dr Mooney for Rhinoplasty?   
    Mooney is an ENT doc.  Nothing wrong with that,  but I have seen some bad reviews on realself.
    Nettle is an actual qualified plastic surgeon.  Ive heard lots of good things.  If I was in NSW, I'd see him.
    In Aus, the term 'cosmetic surgeon' has no definition and is a self appointed title.

    mikk reacted to Maira in Dr. Marcells or?   
    Wow that price just seems crazy to me. Even Greensmith who isn't necessarily considered the cheapest is a good 5-6k cheaper. Have you looked into him? I had my surgery done by him and am pretty pleased with the results. He's definitely conservative but he achieves a natural look.
    Also I second the Dr Nettle suggestion. I looked into him for a good while before I went with Greensmith. He seems to have a great reputation online. His before and afters are certainly encouraging.

    The decision of open/closed isn't really up to the patient to decide. It depends on what needs to be done so the surgeon will suggest accordingly.

    ENTs are also great, but I'd avoid the 'business man' like ones, such as the ones who also perform BAs or call themselves plastic surgeons.
     
     
    That sounds false though.
    "The official qualifications to look for in someone who is going to do your rhinoplasty will either be Specialist Plastic Surgeon, or a Specialist Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT, Otolaryngology), Head and Neck surgeon"

    "ENT Facial Plastic Surgeon or ENT Facial Cosmetic Surgeon have no official recognition as specialties in themselves, but are descriptors that surgeons use to let people know what they do"
    - Dr Callan
     
    There's no further training that allows one to "specialize in the face",  once your already an ENT or plastic surgeon.   
    All ENT can do rhinoplasties,  which is a 'facial plastic'  procedure already.

    I don't think it qualifies at all,  otherwise he would have mentioned it.  
    The organisations he mentioned are all government regulated,  not self regulated and private , such as the AAFPS.  Big difference.   
    You join the AAFPS by being a doctor (usually ENT) and paying a joining fee.  
    As said,  all ENTs are equally trained in facial plastics as part of the syllabus. ...whether they then choose to have an interest in throat, purely functional rhinoplasties, or functional and cosmetic rhinoplasties is entirely up to them. 
    There is no special mysterious private 'fellowship' that deems one more qualified, and Dr Callan confirmed this.

    I think we need to remember what Dr Peter Callan told us on the boards....
    "You just need to check that your surgeon is FRACS in either Plastic Surgery or ENT Head and Neck Surgery, and is experienced in rhinoplasty.  Check the RACS website, The AHPRA website, or the ASOHNS or ASPS websites."
     
    He didnt mention any of the other 'societies'.   ENTs are all trained in 'facial plastics' as part of the course.

    mikk reacted to nswrhino in Weight gain after liposuction   
    The science of L-carnitine supplementation is a little more complicated than this.
    'Acetyl L Carnitine' has been show to be beneficial for fat loss, however studies have shown that it needs to be taken with a high GI carbohydrate (in order to induce a large spike in the metabolic hormone insulin). Typically, the traditional "post-workout meal" consisting of protein and carbohydrates is where this supplement would be ingested in the literature. The theory is that the increase in insulin shuttles the L-carnitine to the mitochondria thereby helping the body to preserve muscle glycogen stores whilst burning fat.
    The time of day that you ingest l-carnitine does not figure in the scientific data whatsoever, as human metabolism does not clock-watch in the same way that our circadian rhythm contributes to sleep.
    Not only does the science impose implications for successful use of L-carnitine for weight loss and fitness goals, people who use this amino acid-like supplement need to be mindful of their macro-nutrient targets, and other dietary behaviours such as nutrient timing, issues surrounding fasted states, low carbohydrate vs high carbohydrate diets etc, as many people will choose to avoid insulin spikes for health or medical reasons.
    L-carnitine is also a dose dependent. Prominent American Exercise Physiologist (and contributor to bodybuilding.com), Jim Stoppani, recommends that while a dose as small as 1gm can be effective, it is best to take 2-3gm per dose for maximum effectiveness.
    If you want to try L-carnitine, be prepared to use high doses, which can be quite expensive. Also, you have to be willing to ingest high glycemic carbs for the supplement to work its magic! Currently, researchers are focusing more on how this supplement can enhance athletic performance, rather than ways that it can enhance fat burning.

    Look for a surgeon that specialises purely in this procedure, not a whole lot of different ones.
    I have had 3 rhinoplastys by 3 different surgeons and none of them provided the results I wanted. These are expensive mistakes to make.Most of the before and after pics of noses are from the side view and not the front and although a rhino is probably the most complex of all cosmetic surgery filing a hump off the top of a nose is not advanced surgery.Fortunately I have now found one that is on the same page as me and he explained exactly what needs to be done in order to obatin the result I want.
