Finding a Rhinoplasty Surgeon
by: Kevin Stith
Selecting the right surgeon for you is both the fun part and the biggest challenge youÃ¯Â¿Â½ll face when electing to do rhinoplasty. There are several national organizations and many state and local organizations where talented, certified professionals band together to offer the public a safe place to find competent, honest rhinoplasty surgeons. One I mentioned earlier in this text was the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) a respected organization that provides listings of professional surgeons around the country as well as all the information one could possibly need in getting help in selecting the right doctor. Another one is the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS).
The internet, your local library or even your family doctor can help you find the listings and certifications of registered physicians in your area to talk to. Remember, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s up to you to decide who you trust to do the work on your nose. Interview as many doctors as you can until you find the one who understands exactly who you are and what you want and is willing to do the work on the budget that you have in mind. Many doctors have waiting lists so time is obviously a factor. If for some reason you feel a need to have the work done quickly then a large number of doctors, who may be booked for months in advance, will not be the right ones for you. If you have the time to wait for the right doctor then you have a wider group to choose from.
Probably the best way to find a doctor is to ask people, friends, who they know who might have had some Ã¯Â¿Â½workÃ¯Â¿Â½ done on their faces. YouÃ¯Â¿Â½ll be surprised at the response. People you wouldnÃ¯Â¿Â½t have dreamed would have had plastic surgery will suddenly come forward with their stories. And best of all, if you didnÃ¯Â¿Â½t know they had the work done, it was probably excellent work. Most people donÃ¯Â¿Â½t want a drastic change to their faces. They want some irregularity fixed, some aging reversed or some childhood trauma finally taken care of. If you canÃ¯Â¿Â½t tell the work was done, if the person has no complaints about the price he/she paid, the treatment he/she received, and most importantly, about the look and feel of the finished product, then this is most probably a doctor you want to talk to about working on your nose.
The best advice youÃ¯Â¿Â½ll ever receive about plastic surgery, about choosing a doctor, about altering your appearance for the better is to do your homework, ask questions, donÃ¯Â¿Â½t rush into anything, find out as much as you possibly can about the work you want done and the people youÃ¯Â¿Â½re considering trusting with the job. The more time you invest in advance, the better your odds are of getting exactly what you want Ã¯Â¿Â½ or more!
