Reason for Operation

What did you want to change improve about your nose before you had the Rhinoplasty?

I had a big hump/bump on my nose that I was insecure about since the age of 13. I was also insecure about the width of my nose. Whenever someone would try look at my side profile I would try hide it. So these were the two main things I wanted to change/improve.

Did you have any doubts or fears about your surgery?

I had been wanting to do a nose job since I was 14 so it was a huge thing for me to step forward and actually go through with it. I had booked a nose job in Amsterdam at boerhaave clinic for February this year but I was too scared to go through with it and so I cancelled. However, when I saw Dr Cameron Mcintosh’s instagram and had a consultation with him I immediately felt that he was the right surgeon for me. He made me feel very confident about the surgery, so when I booked it I was definitely more excited for the surgery than scared.

How was your surgery and rehabilitation?

It’s very important to have clear goals as to why you want the surgery. If you think of vague things such as “It’s just not nice” or “I want to get married” this may not be the operation for you. Try and be as specific as possible and narrow it down to 3 defined outcomes. A detailed history and examination is essential and often a number of specialized additional tests need to be performed such as air-flow/pressure and CT Scans of the nose, septum and sinuses.

What changes have you noticed since the Rhinoplasty?

My nose is much thinner and straighter, and I’m so happy I don’t have the bump anymore! The tip is still quite swollen but my nose is looking so elegant and looks so natural. I wanted my nose too look as natural as possible so people wouldn’t notice I’ve had surgery, but that I would feel more comfortable and confident within myself. It is exactly how I wanted it to turn out.

After Surgery
Some words about about the surgeon

I’m so glad I chose Dr Cameron to do my rhinoplasty. He is so passionate about his work and I noticed that immediately when I had my first consultation with him. He knew exactly what I wanted and I’m so happy with the results. He made me feel so comfortable before the surgery and even held my hand before going under. Dr Cameron is the best of the best!
