How to Choose a Rhinoplasty Surgeon?

When it comes to rhinoplasty surgery, one of the most important steps for San Diego residents is choosing the right rhinoplasty San Diego surgeon.  There are a number of cosmetic surgeons in the San Diego area to choose from so the decision can be difficult.  Unlike other cosmetic procedures a rhinoplasty is very difficult and requires sculpting and attention to detail.  In order to help choose the right rhinoplasty surgeon, here are a few tips that may help you in your decision making.

One of the first things that should be taken into consideration when looking for a rhinoplasty San Diego surgeon is their experience.  There are many plastic surgeons who are qualified and experienced in plastic surgery but their experience may not include rhinoplasty surgeries but maybe breast augmentations or skin grafts.  It’s important when checking a surgeons experience that you look to see if they have experience in rhinoplasty surgery specifically in order to help choose the right surgeon for your procedure.

Another thing one should take into consideration when choosing the right rhinoplasty surgeon is their credentials.  This follows up with checking to see how many successful or repeated rhinoplasty procedures they have performed.  Check their education in the field and make sure they are board certified.  You should read what others have to say about the surgeon’s surgical performance.  Don’t be afraid to ask for examples of their work, so you can see for yourself the results they’re capable of producing.

Another tip for choosing the right rhinoplasty surgeon is understanding their demeanor or bed side manner.  Of course you want someone who is professional but it’s important that you have one you can feel relaxed and comfortable with.  One who you aren’t afraid to ask questions if you don’t understand something.  You should be able to speak openly and frankly without prejudice, this can be determined during a consultation, and if you don’t, try another rhinoplasty surgeon until you do.

Many patients who are needing or wanting any type of surgery can find it very stressful and not many will consider how important it is to feel comfortable with their surgeon.  But when a patient is comfortable with their surgeon they have the confidence and security that things will be okay.

Any surgery can be stressful, rhinoplasty surgery is no exception, making the right choice in surgeons can alleviate some of that stress.  Using these tips for finding the right rhinoplasty surgeon can take some of the stress out of the equation.
