I am not Swedish so I will write this in English. I went on consultation with Dr. Joakim Athlin in Lidingökliniken today, and will tell you about the consultation,
First, however, I want to make a general point about these posts. PLEASE do not let yourself be completely influenced by these posts. A lot of crazy stuff happens behind the scenes: sometimes people get paid to write bad reviews about other doctors by certain clinics, sometimes doctors even write it themselves. Just be aware of this, take everything with a grain of salt, and check out doctors on your own.
Secondly, about Joakim: I had an absolutely terrific consultation with him. He was completely honest with me, both about what is actually possible with my nose (and not only what it would like in a perfect scenario), and also about all the things that in general can go wrong with these types of surgeries. Perfection does not exist, and if you have minimal issues, you might want to think twice about whether or not this is truly worth it for you. Will you be happy once it is done, even once it is not 100% perfect which nothing ever is? Will you look back when you are old and say: thank god I did that nose job? Maybe you will! And he also told me, he is happy and willing to shape my nose the way I would like to. He also completely took in my opinion (I did not want the tip of my nose changed, even though it is very wide, and he is fine with this. He does not force his opinion on you at all). He even told me to get multiple consultations, to check out different points of view.
All in all, a very honest, considerate and open-minded person that gives you REALISTIC expectations and does not pretend to be a magician! Do check him out. I am going to think long and hard about why I want this surgery and if it is truly worth it, and if I do think so, I will have it done with him.
I totally agree. I have been on consultation with Joakim as well. He explained SO well what was possible to do with my nose, what to be aware of and really making sure that I had realistic expectations. I just think it’s SO hard to picture myself with a new nose, and what shape that actually will suit me..
