Hi,

I am a 20 year old from London England. As the NHS was stubborn to offer me treatment I went to India to do a nose surgery operation from an ENT doctor.

My nose was blocked, mainly my left nostril, which caused severe nose leakages, bleedings and coughs.

The doctor kind of messed up my nose.

Although the coughing has decreased by 30% and I don't bleed. I have more problems.

The doctor took "too" much of my bits out as I can only explain it this way. Now I have this weird hollow distorting feeling in my left nostril, as she only operated through this nostril.

On top my self esteem has now dropped, she has caused my left nostril to be larger than my right. I can see the change and it is definitely making me feel ugly. The left nostril is now slightly bigger.

On top my nose still blocks up.

I am going to go on the NHS taking my parents with me, as these doctors have patronized me a lot. I am hoping the NHS this time fixes my nose, they maybe good, but are reluctant to treat people due to the fraud of the system.

Is it possible for another ENT doctor to make my nose better so that, it is not blocked, so that I don't feel the hollow feeling again? Due to the last doctor, as I feel the nose from inside, it is far too hollow.

Also is it possible for any cosmetic surgeon to fix my left nostril to get it back to normal?

Please, your advice and help would really help.

If anyone knows any top ENT specialists and Cosmetic Nose Surgeon specialists in London or Kent, please let me know.

Thank you.

nose operation
Hi I went thru similar to u. I had a a septo rhinoplasty for a badly deviated septum with an ent surgeon. I put all my trust in him. Woke from the op few hrs later was ok but day after woke up ready to go home and had severe pain in my right lung they found i had got pneumonia from the op as they blamed it. They said i prob got it from the blood going down back of my throat and infecting my lung during the op. I was in hosp 3 wk and got pleurisy and fluid on my lung in this time.
To top it off i had my splint off my nose and it was so swollen. I left it thinking and hoping it would go down but my nose now looks worse than b4 and is wide and has one nostril bigger than other and lumps inside and the implant at the front holding it together has seperated leaving a dent in my nose.To be honest i thought the ent surgeon should not be able to rebuid somebodys nose and i think he re built it not knowing if he was doing it right and worked beyond his means. They refused to do cosmetic surgery on the nhs so i appealed and after persuadance they decided to accept me.
I am dur to see a cosmetic surgeon mr david dujon or mr lam in sheffield through the cosmetic surgeon of the nhs hospital in the northern general in sheffield. My left nostril has a pointy shape in and the other a round shape i am not sure they can fix this as he said something about it may not alter the shape of the nostril.
But i think if its something blocking ur iarways inside they can fix this an ent doctor.
I think i will need an ent doc too to be honest for the lumps inside my nose which i think are nasal polyps.

Try Iranian doctors for the nose surgery they are well experienced doctors ! because this kind of surgery is vey common in Iran and a doctor normally do this surgery 5 times a day I know doctors in there who are having 10 surgeries per day !
And I'm a 17 years old boy from Australia.. I had my nose job when I was 16 in Iran.
Good Luck.

Hi there. I am sorry to read about your problems.
I had surgery on my nose in UK for deviated septum, removing some tissue in nose linings and removing polyps after years of blocked nose problems. For a few days I recovered although the pain was terrible but now I am worse with problems with blocked ears and nose just as bad as before most of the time. Now they want me to have my ears done to unblock them but I do not trust them. And they seem to forget that the ears would need to be unblocked over and over again them. It would be like emptying a bucket that is full of water again soon.

Hello ALL,

I am really sorry to hear about your problems. ENT is one of the most sensitive parts as it comprises majorly of our senses. Especially nose as it counters a larger part of our senses. Cosmetic nose surgery is regarded as RhinoPlasty which is a nose job. Chicago ENT offers one of the finest cosmetic surgeries as the doctors follow a detailed diagnostic approach along with a minimal- invasive approach that ensures fastest relief with no signs of incision.

Thank you.
