"Mr Lucian is excellent all around. Very thorough and precise in his approach to the procedure. He is also empathetic and understands the patient's concerns."

"Amazing! Dr. Ion is an angel. I had a very difficult nose as my tip was dropping and my middle part was very narrow. I was aware that finding a surgeon for tip work is very difficult as it is easier to straighten a bump or hook nose but a tip is all cartilage and the surgeon has to be very technically skilled to do this. It is very hard to find a surgeon to do good tip work. Eventually, I found Dr. Ion through social media and flew 13 hours from the U.S., which was worth it! He did a fantastic job! He reduced my tip and made it look so natural. It doesn't look fake or pinched it looks very natural which I love. My family was shocked at how good my nose looked as i had no swelling or bruising shortly after surgery. Dr. Ion truly is a very gifted surgeon. I had no pain. The entire experience was a breeze. A wonderful surgeon and his team and staff Laura and nurse Rosie were so warm, kind, and sweet."
