Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is the most common operation among plastic surgery operations. So who is the best Rhinoplasty Surgeon ? Before we can answer this question, we have to ask the following questions :
1- How many Rhinoplasty surgeries does the surgeon perform annually ?
According to ISAPS data, more than 100,000 patients in the USA had rhinoplasty surgery last year. Rhinoplasty surgeons, performing this operation, are also quite a lot. There are 7.000 Rhinoplasty Surgeons in USA. Assuming all surgeons have an equal number of surgeries, this figure shows us there are 14.2 rhinoplasty surgeries are performed per surgeon in a year, which is actually a very low figure. While choosing your Rhinoplasty Surgeon who will perform your nose surgery, it is important to pay attention to the fact that Plastic Surgeon is specialized in this field, and the number of surgeries per year is at least 100 and shows that the Plastic Surgeon is experienced enough on this regard.
Plastic surgery is a very large area. Therefore, there are many types of surgery. So you can ask your doctor for which type of surgery patients come most often. His answer will give you a preview of his level of expertise.
2- How many scientific publications does the surgeon have about Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) ?
The scientific aspect is also very important to be the best Rhinoplasy Surgeon. This not only demonstrates that it is following all technological developments, but also shows that there is a capacity and potential to add new developments to existing ones.
3- Does the surgeon receive invitations as a faculty about Rhinoplasty ?
It is necessary to attain a certain level knowledge in order to be a faculty during congress. This is important for patients to understand the surgeon’s experience and value about the subject.
4- Does the surgeon take an educational role about Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) ?
Teaching is also as important as performing Rhinoplasty Surgeries. It shows that the Rhinoplasty Surgeon has analyzed very well what he/she is doing and have deep knowledge about to tell all details to the other surgeons. This is one of the most important parameters that determine the best Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgeon.
Acceptance of your doctor to the surgeries abroad can be considered as an important indicator of success as well as patients from abroad. For example, plastic surgeons who are successful in their field can go abroad with fellowship programs and perform aesthetic operations there. During the surgery, they will give some kind of training to the candidates for being doctors. The fact that your doctor has been accepted as an “Instructor” in such programs abroad reveals his international reliability.
5- Does the surgeon has a website/social media account where patients can get more info ?
Another important parameter is information about the surgery. In plastic and aesthetic surgeries, surgery information is extremely important for patients to understand the doctor’s approach. This allows patients to understand both the doctor’s domination and his/her aesthetic perception. This is an important parameter to determine the best Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) Surgeon. Rhinoplasty surgery is the most difficult operation of plastic surgery. Very different result can be attained from a surgeon who performs this operation in a routine clinical practice and from a surgeon who performs it once a year. The nose effects the entire face appearance with its strategic place.
6- Is the Rhinoplasty Surgeon preferred by celebrities ?
Since celebrities are very visible and earn their lives in front of the camera, they are more obsessive about plastic and aesthetic surgeries. So if a celebrity prefers the Rhinoplasty Surgeon, it may be an important criteria for you. However, celebrities also hide that they have surgery. If the celebrity is not hiding of having a surgery, she/he may have collaborated with the doctor most of the time. Because celebrities do not want to be called aesthetically like every patient and want to know that their beauty is natural. So, Angelina Jolie from Hollywood, and Türkan Şoray from Yeşil Çam all had their operations quietly behind closed doors.
7- Is the Rhinoplasty Surgeon a member of professional associations and organizations ?
Being a member of associations related to the field of Rhinoplasty (Nose Job) is an indication that it is known and relevant in the field.
As in every field, there are organizations, associations and societies in the field of plastic surgery which have members- specialists from all over the world. You can ask your plastic surgeon which associations and societies you are a member of. His answers can provide important previews for you.
8- Does the Rhinoplasty Surgeon have an internationally valid certificate?
The fact that the plastic surgeon you have an appointment with has an international certificate in the field of aesthetic surgery is one of the indicators of success on the field. This includes international trainings as well. It shows that your surgeon has passed both a written and verbal exam, which is quite challenging, and that he has international recognition. This increases the reliability of your plastic surgeon.
9- How Much Revision Does the Rhinoplasty Surgeon’s Patients Need After Surgery?
As plastic surgery is divided into many different sections, rhinoplasty surgery is also divided into various types. Not all nose surgeries are at the same difficulty level for the doctor. Therefore, revision nose surgery may be required after some nose surgeries. However, the rate is very important at this point. This question gives you information about the level of satisfaction of previous patients about the doctor. If a low rate of revision nose surgery was required after the nose surgeries performed by the doctor, it can be concluded that he was successful in the field of rhinoplasty. It can be said that the revision surgery rate of 10% and below is ideal.
10- Which Rhinoplasty Technique Does Rhinoplasty Surgeon Use & Why?
Rhinoplasty surgeries are performed in two different types, open and closed, depending on the plastic surgeon’s expertise. There are a number of advantages and disadvantages in both types. At this point, you need to ask your plastic surgeron which technique is used and why. For example, Nose Surgeery with Closed Technique is more difficult, moreover it doesn’t leave scars as there is no visible incision on the tip of the nose. In short, getting information about the technique used by your plastic surgeon helps you understand better what is waiting for you.
11- Does Rhinoplasty Surgeon Perform Rhinoplasty Simulations?
Before each nose surgery, it is tried to be revealed how the patient’s nose will look like with different methods. You can ask your doctor what type of simulation device he uses. Thanks to the present devices, you can see through the simulations how the nose you dream of looks on you after the surgery. Thus, the dissatisfaction with the new nose after the operation is reduced.
12- Can You see before and after pictures of Rhinoplasty Results?
In many sectors experts in their fields have their portfolios. In these portfolios, the main works of the person in his field are exhibited. The portfolio of an aesthetic doctor is also comparative photographs showing the before and after views of patients who have previously operated on. You can request to see those from your aesthetic doctor when you meet him on the appointment. Thus, you can see what kind of aesthetic transformations were made before.
13- Does Rhinoplasty Surgeon Patients Coming from Abroad?
Another international success indicator is whether he receives patients from abroad. If they have regularly patients from abroad, it may be an important indicator for his success in the field.
14- If You Are Not Happy From The Result, What Are Your Options?
There are two issues that people who want to have a nose surgery are generally anxious about. One is the potential pain and swelling caused by surgery, and the other is the fear of dissatisfaction with the outcome despite the entire difficult process. So, to overcome this fear, you can ask your aesthetic doctor what your options will be if you are not satisfied with the results. This not only affects the degree of reliability between the doctor and patient, but also helps you better prepare for surgery.
