Finding the Right Plastic Surgeon for Rhinoplasty

by DrBanthia on November 28, 2012

Rhinoplasty Surgery is widely seen as the most complex plastic surgery procedure performed.  Due to the complexities of the nose and the importance of facial symmetry, it is important to take your time when choosing a San Jose Plastic Surgeon.  Taking the extra time to choose the right surgeon can be the difference between a good and bad rhinoplasty results.  Since the nose is the focal point of the face, even the smallest changes can have a profound effect on the overall facial appearance. It is important to understand what changes you would like to make as well as whether your surgeon is qualified to make them.

What does “Board Certified” mean?

When looking for a qualified plastic surgeon to perform your rhinoplasty procedure, it is important to ensure that the surgeon is Board Certified in the area of facial plastic surgery.  Board Certification is a process designed to assure the public that a certified medical professional has completed an approved educational program and evaluation.   The additional training specific to plastic surgery as well as both written and oral exams assure potential patients that their surgeon is qualified and experienced in their chosen field.

Why are you choosing Rhinoplasty?

It is also important to consider the reason for rhinoplasty.  Is the reason for rhinoplasty cosmetic, traumatic, functional, or for nasal reconstruction?  While a majority of patients seek the procedure for cosmetic reasons, San Jose Rhinoplasty can benefit patients who have functional issues with their nose.  Impaired breathing can often be corrected during a rhinoplasty procedure, and cosmetic changes can often be made during the same procedure.  Having a plastic surgeon that is skilled in all areas will translate to better appearance and functionality.  The Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at Reviance® have tremendous experience in cosmetic, traumatic, functional, and nasal reconstruction rhinoplasty procedures.

Comfort with your surgeon is important

When choosing the right plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty, it is also important to note your comfort level with your surgeon.  Feeling like you can have an open dialogue with your surgeon will have a positive effect on your results and overall satisfaction following the procedure.  Given the complexity of the surgery, and the dramatic effect even the smallest changes can have on facial balance and harmony, being able to discuss concerns openly will be crucial to achieving the very best results.
