Top UK Rhinoplasty Surgeon, Julian Rowe-Jones on: What are your responsibilities?
Rhinoplasty is a partnership
I firmly believe that rhinoplasty is a partnership and that means both parties have responsibilities. Your responsibilities are to make sure you’ve understood everything I’ve said. I cannot make the decision for you; different people have different attitudes towards risk. My responsibilities are to make sure you understand the risks and that I’ve answered all your questions.
The final decision
I can recommend surgery to you. I can also recommend that you don’t have surgery. If I have recommended surgery to you, it’s still your decision. Your responsibility is to determine from what I’ve told you, whether rhinoplasty is right for you. I do not take the final responsibility as to whether you decide on surgery or not.

A Rhinoplasty Testimonial
My secondary surgeon was also not understanding of my desires, or had the technical knowledge to create them. Shortly after, I was assaulted and broke my nose in the process. Then I had a deviated septum, scar tissue formation, a concave or collapsed nose, had broken jagged bones, and weird nostrils. My breathing often became blocked.
When Mr Rowe-Jones and his lovely wife Emma showed me the photograph on the computer of my desired nose, I was in tears of joy on the ride back to London. Julian did not promise this. He said it was only a guideline and we agreed on this. I had consulted with him three times and been shown photos of a woman and man who suffered trauma to their nose.He also showed me photos of some ethnic Indian patients and I was impressed by his eye for keeping the Indian nose “ethnic” while improving it aesthetically.
