Factors to Consider When Selecting a Rhinoplasty Surgeon


When it comes to setting yourself up for a successful surgery, efficient recovery, and optimal, natural-looking rhinoplasty results, choosing a highly qualified and experienced nose surgeon is one of the most critical measures you can take. No matter where you're located or what type of nose surgery you're considering, The Rhinoplasty Society is an ideal place to start. Members of The Rhinoplasty Society — a collective group of board-certified rhinoplasty surgeons across the county who have extensive experience and skill — are committed to utilizing modern tools and technologies to help patients achieve the most pleasing aesthetic and functional results possible with rhinoplasty surgery. Here, we'll outline some of the factors to evaluate when choosing a surgeon for your nose job.

What should I look for in a rhinoplasty surgeon?

Whether you're interested in cosmetic rhinoplasty, functional rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, or ethnic nose surgery, choosing the right surgeon plays a critical role in the success of your procedure and the quality of your experience overall. Without question, selecting an experienced, board-certified surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty is essential. If you're just starting your journey with rhinoplasty surgery, one of the first steps you should take is scheduling a nose job consultation. During your rhinoplasty consultation, you'll have the opportunity to evaluate your potential surgeon's experience and past results, ask any questions you may have, and learn more about the options that may be available for you. Some of the important things to consider when choosing a surgeon for rhinoplasty include:

  • Education
  • Experience
  • Board certifications
  • Patient reviews
  • Rhinoplasty before-and-after photos
  • Bedside manner and understanding of your desired goals
  • Convenience (including proximity to your location, office hours, and other factors)
  • Types of nasal surgery available

What questions should I ask during my nose job consultation?

Coming prepared with a list of questions for your rhinoplasty consultation is highly recommended for making the most of your time with a potential surgeon and helping guide you to the rhinoplasty provider. Some of the key questions to ask during a rhinoplasty consultation may include:

  • What is the surgeon's level of skill and experience?
  • What type of nose job is appropriate for me?
  • What can I expect during rhinoplasty recovery?
  • What are my personal risks for rhinoplasty surgery?
  • Is there a nonsurgical rhinoplasty alternative that is better for me?
  • How many rhinoplasty follow-up appointments will I need?
  • What techniques will be used during my rhinoplasty?
  • Will I still look like myself after a nose job?
