How do I Select a Good Rhinoplasty Surgeon?
Selecting a good rhinoplasty surgeon involves multiple variables. First make sure that they are board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Talk with friends and colleagues; you may know someone that has had a rhinoplasty and can recommend a good plastic surgeon. Once you have narrowed down your choices, make an appointment for a consultation. I counsel my patients to seek as many consultations as they feel necessary. You should not only feel that your plastic surgeon will do a good job, but that they will be there for you after surgery as the convalescence can be lengthy. Look at website before and after photos. Beware of consultations that use computer programs to “morph” you photo and predict an outcome. These photos can be deceiving and are in no way a guarantee of your final result after rhinoplasty.
