The Rhinoplasty Surgeon is considered to be the most meticulous, skilled and exquisite of all Plastic Surgeons. Aesthetic Surgery of the nose is a three dimensional operation of millimeters and fractions thereof. The successful Rhinoplasty requires skill, artistry and a complete understanding of the nose, its architecture, as well as its functional physiology.
Facial Plastic Surgeons by training are “specialists of the face” and are well equipped to deal with these issues – inside and out. Facial Plastic Surgeons spend five years of rigorous specialized surgical training or “Residency” in Head & Neck Surgery, focusing exclusively on the face, neck and nose. These surgeons become Board Certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which is the main governing body in the United States overseeing the training of surgeons. Following this specialized training and Board Certification, true Facial Plastic Surgeons go above and beyond and spend an additional year of dedicated Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship training mastering the cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, neck and nose. A very small handful of Facial Plastic Surgeons go even a step beyond this and dedicate their training and practice to the intricate surgery of the nose, resulting in unparalleled skill and expertise when it comes to the nasal reshaping surgery – Rhinoplasty.
