Dr Marcells - Sydney Rhinoplasty - any experience?

Recommended Posts

Hi - I am new to the forum and would love to hear some first hand experience from anyone who had Dr Marcells as their surgeon in Sydney. 

 

I am trying to make my decision of whether to go ahead with rhinoplasty. I have breathing issues and a bump in my nose caused by an injury years ago. I have wanted to get it fixed for a long time but have been too scared! A chin implant has also been suggested which I hadn't thought of before (but can see the need for!)

 

Anyone have any first hand experience about rhinoplasty / chin augmentation with Dr Marcells and willing to share? I would love to hear from you!!

I suggest you carefully read the risk of rhinoplasty. Ask your Dr and get in writing all risks before committing to surgery.

@johny79, I would have thought your post was made in exactly the right place [forums>procedures>Rhinoplasty - Nose Surgery]. This forum has hundreds of posts about Rhinoplasty in Australia and overseas.

@cosmetic, may I please ask why George Marcells should be first on the list? There are actually very few reviews of his work anywhere on the web, including RealSelf. Has he operated on you?

This post is not meant to be provocative, its just that I thought that everyone comes here in the hope of learning something... from each other. Surely this website wouldn't have a Rhinoplasty section if it was only concerned with BA's?

I agree. Just something quite not right about members vouching for Dr's yet no real examples or experiences.

Its unfortunate as I figured a forum would be the ideal way to help others.

With respect, before and afters wasn't the issue being discussed here. The issue was shared experiences, as johny79 said.

And everything you have said in your post is available on Dr Marcell's website, in the "About Doctor Marcells" section ;)

Dr Marcell's claims to be a master of rhinoplasty. That is a pretty big statement to make, especially when there are actually very few reviews of his work online to corroborate that statement. I've been researching ENT surgeons for a long time, and I can't recall even the big name American surgeons referring to themselves in this way.

cosmetic, if you've had a consult or procedure with Dr Marcell's, please share your story :)

George Marcells is hosting this conference with Peter Callan. They are both respected rhinoplasty surgeons who are pretty progressive in bringing ENTs and PS together to really develop rhinoplasty skills. I shot a video with Peter on the conference which will go up tomorrow but you can view it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT9hdYkDlb4

PSF are attending this event and I will be blogging heavily on it. I hope this will encourage more rhinoplasty discussion on the forum as we have no intentions of only focussing on breast augs

I also hope the same. I wish more male's can come on this forum and join in the discussions...    In my part since having undergone Primary Rhinoplasty I feel I can contribute to this forum with my experience ...  It's  very early to disclose what I have plans in future.... I'm  hoping this conference will shed some light ....

Also thankyou for uploading this youtube clip :)

I am looking forward to meeting you and how lucky are you to be able to attend :)
We have some interview lined up with some of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in the world, I am so excited.

Can someone help me with a few things...

I'm 23 y/o male in desperate need of a nose reconstruction from breakage. I live in Brisbane but am set on having surgery done by either Dr Marcells or Pincock even though I haven't had consultation with either.

Was wondering the hurdles faced when undergoing surgery out of state compared to locally? Also would my first step be seeing my GP? What is the possibility of booking consultations on the same day and planning this with both offices, seeing as I'd have to fly to Sydney? Is such thing acceptable? 

 

Sorry if questions seem dumb, I'm new to this and have only recently mustered the courage and $$$ to begin my well overdue journey.

Iv heard he is the best.  Iv checked out his work online and I love all of his before and afters.

I will be flying to Sydney to get my nose done by him when im ready.  My hubby needs a little more convincing.

Hi,

You have heard he is the best? From who? I'm not being sarcastic. I really am having difficulty in deciding which doctor to go with.

The reason I am on here is to learn and make well informed decision.

@johny79 have you gone to see the surgeons yourselves or are you just purely relying on this forum  ?   If you haven't .... ask this question why should I choose you instead of so in so ?

I'm sure they would open up if they want your business and point out the pros 

 

Yes, I have been to 3 consultations with 3 different Surgeon.

Surgeons are good at selling themselves. How do I know which surgeon will be the right one for me? 

Right now I am relying on my gut and REAL and GENUINE reviews from other members.

Mate my reviews are real and genuine...  

so you have seen 3 surgeons why don;t you tell other  members your experience on your consultation ? 

As I recall you were wanting to hear a member's experience who underwent rhinoplasty under   Dr. Tobias Pincock ?  Well he did my primary rhinoplasty so if I can be of any assistance in providing a real and genuine response!  having a understating I have nothing against him and you must have a understating all surgical outcomes may not be to a patient's expectations under the hands of any facial plastic surgeon. 

I am yet to decide on a surgeon. What are my experiences ? Well I haven't had the surgery so I can't tell you.

consultation wise, I really can't tell. Each had different opinions on what can be done. This makes it all the more confusing. Who do I trust do give me the outcome I desire?

Attending consultations and relying on experiences/reviews from others is the only way.

you would think that would be simple on a forum, it has been the opposite. 

What you do get are one post one wonders who sign up in order to post one comment and then disappear.

Take your time!

The best thing is to see  MANY  before and after pictures of real  patients in person with the surgeon and ask many questions.    Be your own judge of their work ,   and don't let anyone else tell you how great they are!

100% agree with your comments :)   and please advice how we can see ps "real patients"  

 

Book a consultation with the surgeon and they will show you before and after photos of their patients.

Dr Marcells is amongst the most highly qualified as he has iifpps accreditation 

ENT plus facial plastics is the ultimate qualification

however

excellent credentials don't mean a 10/10 result there are plenty of factors that can lead to a less than ideal result.

Toriumi is a facial plastic surgeon and there are only 3 surgeons in Australia with those levels of training.

the same forum members who visited the rhinoplasty conference would have heard him talk about how difficult some of these patients are. He almost broke down in tears recalling surgeries he'd slaved over only to have him viscously attacked online. This patient for example is unhappy 

http://drtoriumipatienttestimonialsandsugges.blogspot.com.au/?m=1

but the same surgeon is arguably the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the world. ?? Is it botched. No. It's a bad outcome. Almost certainly not the surgeons or patients fault. It's called medical misadventure, risk, risk of revision or just plain complication. Toriumi would be horrified at the result, lose sleep over it and correct it but unfortunately that patient has to wait while the poor patient has to walk around deformed for 12 months.

Then he has to revise a patient who will ultimately understand that revisions go with the territory and his outcome although unlucky was not botched.

 

But by then it's too late and he may be so angry that he missed his opportunity to get a free revision by the best in the world because the patient either didn't listen during informed consent, didn't read the written consent they signed or just listened to rubbish on the net and didn't follow their post op seriously though the best surgeon in the world gets anonymously slandered.

so next time he sees someone that needs help he is far more unlikely to be as ready to help because he is constantly forced to practice defensive medicine.

as with any social media forum be very wary about contacting or meeting so called member experts. I've met several personally and they are not normal.
