What Makes a Surgeon a Rhinoplasty Specialist?

Keep in mind that just because a surgeon has performed a large number of rhinoplasties or has been in practice for a very long time, this does not automatically qualify that surgeon to possess proper aesthetic judgment or to be adept at the most recent and advanced techniques and concepts. There is much more to it than that. Finding a rhinoplasty specialist that is right for you can be challenging. Here are some of the most common qualifications of a rhinoplasty specialist:

  • Dedicates a significant percentage of his/her practice to rhinoplasty
  • Has a wealth of clinical experience, including experience with complicated revision procedures and ethnic noses
  • Delivers results that look natural instead of artificial or surgically altered
  • Has the skill set to properly evaluate and execute techniques for all nasal types and shapes
  • Has impeccable aesthetic judgment and advises patients accordingly
  • Writes journal articles and textbook chapters about rhinoplasty
  • Invited by peers to lecture about rhinoplasty techniques and concepts at national and international medical conferences

Rhinoplasty on various ethnicities demands even more specialized knowledge and dedication, because with ethnic noses it can be more difficult to affect enough of a visible change while retaining natural facial appearance. Specialists in ethnic rhinoplasty such as Dr. Ghavami possess specific knowledge, most notably familiarity with the facial characteristics of different ethnicities. Dr. Ghavami is often asked to present his techniques at plastic surgery meetings around the world, from Paris to Hawaii. A successful ethnic rhinoplasty specialist is able to establish the delicate balance: improving the attractiveness of a patient’s nose without erasing his or her unique ethnic characteristics. Creating and maintaining ethnic-facial balance is critical to performing rhinoplasty on all ethnic nasal types.
