As a patient it can often be confusing as to what to look for in a rhinoplasty surgeon and choosing the right surgeon for you. The first thing to look for in a rhinoplasty surgeon is to make sure that your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery or the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The reason for that is because board certification shows the surgeon has gone through the requisite training and has fulfilled the requirements to show competence in those procedures including rhinoplasty. but that’s just the beginning just because a surgeon is board-certified in facial plastic surgery does not make that surgeon a rhinoplasty specialist or an expert in rhinoplasty. The next thing to look for is the physician’s before and after photos.
A busy surgeon will always have before and after photos showing examples of cases that he or she has performed. It’s important to look at those critically and to see if any of those patients are similar to you and have achieved results that you find aesthetically pleasing. Another great way to see if a surgeon is the right rhinoplasty surgeon for you is by patient referrals.
By speaking to patients who have had procedures done by the same surgeon or who have had good experiences with the surgeon, that can sometimes be helpful in narrowing down the right surgeon for you. Finally, it comes to your connection with the surgeon. Once you have done your research and your due diligence and you’ve narrowed down your list to potential surgeons the onus is on you as a patient to make consultations and to meet the surgeons one-on-one.
The consultation will tell you a lot in terms of if you’re able to communicate with the surgeon, if you feel a connection where you’re confident that your surgeon can deliver the results that you’re looking for, and you also want to have a level of comfort because ultimately once you commit to surgery this is a surgeon who’s going to be taking care of you for years to come.

Is rhinoplasty, just has beauty aspect?
The answer to this question is no. In general, rhinoplasty can be performed for two purposes: to improve nose function and to improve nose appearance. Rhinoplasty is not only a cosmetic aspect and can also be performed with the aim of resolving the functional problems of the nose that are the cause of respiratory disorders.
Therefore, the idea that purpose of rhinoplasty is only to improve the shape and beauty of nose is wrong, and by performing surgery, it is possible to correct functional problems of nose while eliminating nose apparent defects.
