    Hello, just thought I would comment on here because I have read this over past few weeks and it terrified me! Despite this I decided to go ahead and have rhinoplasty with Mr Ivo Gwanmesia last Wednesday 10th June 2015. I had my cast removed today, and I am thrilled and have nothing but positive things to say about him and the Harley medical group! He has been fantastic and showed me before and after photos before my surgery. I have also allowed him to use my own photos for the future. I had a realistic expectation and asked for changes of my own nose. Not showing him Kim Ks nose and saying I wanna look like her and for me he has gone above what I expected. I think everyone varies in how they feel with results but I am truely happy. I had a drooping tip and a bump from the side which he has now curved inwards and lifted the tip up, I had limited post op pain and managed on paracetamol. I did have complications as my septum broke during the surgery so I was under for 4 hours instead of two whilst he repaired that also and was completely honest. As with any surgery there are always risks and he said this has never happened to him before I was just unlucky, however it has not affected my results I was just extremely bruised and swollen to the point on day 4 I could hardly see! Nevertheless I am so so happy with my results. I'm sad others aren't as happy but I thought I would just comment from a different perspective for others reading this and considering having him as their surgeon I would 100% recommend. He is also a facial crano specialist and I believe there is only 12 in the UK at the moment. Good luck everyone

    Hi I've just had my surgery with Ivo Gwanmesia on 17 July and so far I'm very happy with the results. I had the dorsal hum removed, nose narrowed and tip raised. So far so good Ivo is a lovely man and listened to everything I ask for and staff at Harley were brilliant.

    Madison,,perhaps you could post some pics/side profiles and let us give opinions? I would also say to anyone that if you are considering cosmetic surgery MAKE SURE that your surgeon is at least a member of Baaps..

    I'm so self conscious about it. I had been dreaming of a nose job all my life and I new exactly what I wanted and my needs have not been met at all. It upsets me that still after all the money I paid I still do not like my nose and I am still very self conscious about it. I take less pictures now then I did before. I don't even mention that I have had a nose job because I don't want to draw more attention to it. I can still it's still swollen and I'm still hoping for change but at this point I can't even imagine that one day I will like it

    Have you ever come to the conclusion that you are just paranoid about your nose looking not as good as you would want it due to your obsession over your nose and side profile, your nose might look fine to some people, or most, but you may think it looks horrid. Not sure on the terminology of that, but I'm pretty sure it's something.

    And unless your rich or are a gold digger, having 4.5k spare for a nose job is an obsession personally, I can guarantee you my nose looks worse. No offence, you should deal with it, so what you haven't got an arch, not many people do, it looks cute and nice. But no offence as I say deal with it, cause there's more to life then appearance, my nose is wonky due to getting beaten up by 5/6 guys who jumped me. I'm still alive.

    I have accepted it because there's nothing I can do now, however it doesn't make me any less self conscious. Other people can also see my issues with it. Maybe my security is magnified because it is my own but 'dealing with it' is not just going to work. For some it takes more time and even therapy to really get rid of issues that lie deep down.

    The moment I met Mr Gwanmesia I had full faith in him and his abilities. I had researched him and had a lot of respect for him. I am now 10 days post surgery and recovery is better than I expected. The work Ivo has carried out is exceptional. I am already completely delighted with the results, it is better than I expected or could have asked for. Ivo is a very genuine and considerate surgeon. He made me feel reassured right up to the moment of surgery and afterwards. He puts your needs as his patient first, listens to you and makes his decisions in the best interests of his patients. He takes pride in his work, is a perfectionist and looks after his patients. I fully recommend him and it has been the best decision to have surgery and after searching for nearly 3 years to find a surgeon I trusted, knew that they were going to do their best and are genuine. I'm delighted to say that Mr Gwanmesia has been my surgeon.
