Revision, Breathing issues.

Revision, Breathing issues.

Postby nzguy01 » Sat Jun 24, 2017 2:16 am

Hi Everyone,
I am new to the forum, found this via google. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for revision rhinoplasty in New Zealand. I have consulted on facial plastic surgeon Chris Thompson based in Christchurch. Results on his site look promising but I could not find any online reviews of him. He advised rib grafting to fix the issues.

My case, breathing issues, left internal valve collapse and droopy nose after primary.

It has 2 ½ years since the operation.
Would appreciate any info.
Thanks.

I have spent close to 8-10 months searching for someone who got operated by the same doctor without any luck.

Now I am considering travelling out of New Zealand and get the revision done from a reputed surgeon.For me getting a functional nose would be a priority but would not mind a normal looking straight nose. So far I like the results from Richard Davis and Lucian Ion.

What I have gathered so far from this wonderful forum is that wait time to get the consult could be more than 1 year for Dr Davis. Hence I have been leaning towards travelling to UK and hopefully get the surgery from Dr Ion.

But the idea of getting operated without any family/friend support really scares me and I am not sure of the actual cost of surgery. Some of the reviews on real self for Lucian Ion mention the cost to be somewhere around 10-12k USD. Does it include anaesthetic/hospital fee?

My apologies if I have got too many questions.

1) Should I try to find another surgeon in New Zealand only?
2) Can I travel alone and get the surgery done? is this too risky ?
3) Recommendation for any other doctor apart from Davis and Ion?

Anyone with similar experience or recommendations?
Thanks for the support.
