Aside from being a good candidate one of the thing that you have to ensure when preparing for a rhinoplasty is to find the right rhinoplasty surgeon.

It is the competence of this surgeon that determines the success of your surgery. So when doing your research, make sure that you keep these points in mind.

1. Proper Training, Education and Specialization

You would want your surgery to be performed by someone who is competent to do so after obtaining a full course, extensive training, and specialization. Knowing what you surgeon specializes on will allow you to know if he is really qualified to help you with your specific problem. Surgeons may be trained in facial plastic surgery, but knowing that he has good background on septoplasty for instance will be an advantage for you.

2. Board Certified

Did you know that in some regions it is legal for any doctor with a valid medical license to practice cosmetic surgery with or without surgical training? That is why it is important to ensure that your cosmetic surgeon is board certified because this can ensure that your cosmetic surgeon has the training, skills and experience to perform a specific cosmetic procedure. It also means that they have extensive knowledge, better surgical judgment, and good knowledge on the latest techniques.

3. Good Deal of Experience

Experience would help ensure that you are under competent hands. But when considering a cosmetic surgeon, make sure that he has good experience in specifically performing rhinoplasty surgeries.

4. Good Reviews from Past Clients

Sometimes a surgeon can make himself look good with flowery details about what he can do. You can only be more certain about this when you hear the satisfied accounts of previous patients. If you find someone who can attest that he is able to perform a good rhinoplasty and you also get to see this for yourself, then keep this in consideration.

5. Excellent Work Quality

In relation to what has been said earlier, it is important to check the rhinoplasty surgeon’s quality of work. Don’t simply settle about what you can hear or read, but look for actual results. One way to do this is to go to forums and correspond with previous clients, and you could request them for some pictures. Another way is to ask for the surgeon’s portfolio and browse through before and after images of his patients.

6. Should not be Coercive

Do not trust someone who will pressure you into having a rhinoplasty done. Someone who is more inclined into having you immediately booked for a procedure without even thoroughly considering your case is only after your money. Be very discerning when going to consults, and never feel compelled to have a decision right then and there.

7. Does Not Offer Flashy Deals

Don’t easily give in to packages that seem too good to be true, because that is what it could really just be – a marketing tactic. If a surgeon gives you a very low quote for a rhinoplasty surgery compared to the usual prices in the area, this could not be a bargain at all. It is wise to check a surgeon’s reputation over his fee.

8. Offers Options

A good rhinoplasty surgeon would be open to give you suggestions even if it means not getting any surgery. He should give you a set of options because this means that he is not after your money but your well-being. Not everyone who comes in for rhinoplasty should ultimately go through with it, and an honest surgeon would be willing to show you a list of choices.

9. Understands What You Want

The right rhinoplasty surgeon should be able to understand what you want and what would be best for you. He should know what is aesthetically possible while also taking your preferences into consideration.

10. Good Aftercare Plan

You should highly consider a rhinoplasty surgeon who offers you with a good aftercare arrangement. This shows that he takes effort into ensuring that you reach total recovery under the best circumstances.

Seek Professional Advice

While it is great to have better knowledge and understanding about rhinoplasty procedure, no amount of research is substantial than getting a professional advice from your doctor. A consultation with your doctor will allow for a proper assessment of your condition. This is also a great opportunity for you to raise some concerns, hesitations and your expectations in getting a cosmetic surgery. Plus, your doctor will be able to explain to you how best you can achieve the eyelid surgery results that you are longing for.
