Your consultation is an extremely important stage in your rhinoplasty journey.

Your consultation is an extremely important stage in your rhinoplasty journey. It is Mr Rowe-Jones and his team’s opportunity to gain a clear understanding of your hopes, to answer your questions, address your concerns and to explore with you what can and cannot be achieved. At this stage Mr Rowe-Jones is often able to digitally show you what is possible. This helps him demonstrate what can be done.

He and Emma Rowe-Jones will talk you through what you will experience and how you will feel during every step of the process of your rhinoplasty. It is your opportunity to ask all the questions you have, to tell them about anything which worries you or anything you don’t fully understand. The aims of the consultations are to ensure you end up feeling fully informed and confident about rhinoplasty.

The stages of your rhinoplasty consultation

1. The initial consultation with Mr Rowe-Jones

Mr Rowe-Jones now meets and talks to you for the first time via video consultation. Experience has reassured him he can develop good rapport with you using this method of communication. His patients have fed back that this is a very convenient and helpful first step in deciding on whether to move forward with rhinoplasty. He will explore the aspects you don’t like about your nose and how you’d like it to look after a rhinoplasty. He will then help you to crystallise your thoughts and to put your concerns and hopes clearly into words. The objective is to get to know you well and understand how you would like rhinoplasty to move your life forward and improve your wellbeing.

You will be sent a confidential electronic form before your video consultation. This takes you through questions so that you can describe what you would like to achieve. It also gives you the opportunity to upload photographs of your face. Mr Rowe-Jones will then be well prepared for your consultation.

2. The next step

Mr Rowe-Jones’s international reputation for rhinoplasty is built not just upon excellence in surgical performance but also on an equally strong commitment to choosing the right patients for surgery. Rhinoplasty surgery like all operations does come with physical risks but also has psychological risks. “I am only interested in the highest levels of clinical care. I believe it is essential to minimise all risks and so all my patients also see a Clinical Psychologist for another video consultation as part of their assessment. We must make sure we have done everything we can to help patients confirm their motivations. We must also make sure these are in tune with what research has shown to be the psychological benefits of cosmetic rhinoplasty”.

This is extremely valuable in helping each patient to be absolutely certain surgery is right for them. It also means you have had experts in all the right fields getting to know and understand you well as an individual. This way we can be as sure as possible we have done everything possible before we make a personal recommendation. We are also best placed to understand how to help support you as an individual through your rhinoplasty. Cosmetic facial surgery can be emotionally challenging at times. This innovative approach of Mr Rowe-Jones and his team to rhinoplasty care will help to maximise your performance and your benefit from cosmetic rhinoplasty.

3. Seeing us in person – The examination, analysis and review of options

After your two video consultations all patients for whom rhinoplasty is an option are invited to come in person to Mr Rowe-Jones’s clinic. He will make a detailed assessment of your nose from the outside, and may also look inside through the nostrils with an endoscope (sinus endoscopy).

You may be shown the inside of your nose on a television screen using the camera on the endoscope. Examination is part of the vital process of understanding your nasal shape and its unique characteristics.

4. Seeing us in person – Rhinoplasty 3D imaging and final procedure planning

At the same visit a series of 2D and 3D digital photographs will be taken of your nose and face from various angles. Our investment in 3D technology brings additional depth and understanding of your nose and facial proportions, helping us create a realistic picture of the important aspects of your rhinoplasty, such as the three-quarter view and the shape of the nostrils, tip and bridge.

These measurements and images provide more detail, whilst the computer generated 2D & 3D impressions can be manipulated to give you an impression of what the results of your rhinoplasty surgery may look like. This process helps ensure both you and Mr Rowe-Jones are absolutely clear and happy with what you trying to achieve with your rhinoplasty. Very importantly it also helps you understand what is not possible.

Emma Rowe-Jones, Clinical Nurse Specialist will also see you. As well as the potential benefits possible for your nose, care will be taken to explain the risks and to ensure you understand them. She will also help prepare you for surgery and the early period after wards. She will ensure you know how to use our treatment regime in the lead up to your operation.
