I am scheduled for a rhinoplasty procedure with an accredited doctor next month. He does not specialize in surgery of the face, but instead, the face, body and breast. Should I be concerned that his focus is too broad or that he has not done enough rhinoplasty procedures compared to surgeons who specialize in surgery of the face alone?
It is important to check your plastic surgeons credentials as well as ask for their experience with the proposed procedure. It is helpful to ask for before and after photographs of their patient results. Another great resource is talking to patients who have had this procedure performed by this surgeon for their overall experience and satisfaction.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is an organization reserved for board certified plastic surgeons that demonstrate an interest in aesthetic surgery and have a significant portion of their practice dedicated to it, as well as an interest in continuing education in this area. The web site is an excellent resource for consumers and I think you will find it helpful in making your decision.
