One of the main reasons why we do so many rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgeries is the fact that my practice has extensive experience when it comes to cosmetic reshaping of the nose. In fact, a large part of my San Diego Facial Plastic Surgery practice is dedicated to rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. Facial plastic surgeons who are rhinoplasty specialists are vastly different from what my colleague, Dr. Steven Dayan in Chicago, refers to as the ‘occasional’ rhinoplasty surgeon. I think this is a great term for those plastic surgeons out there who perform all different types of cosmetic surgery. For instance, a majority of plastic surgeons here in San Diego perform breast augmentation and body sculpting on a very regular basis. They might even perform facelift surgery as part of their practice. But a large majority of these San Diego plastic surgeons are truly ‘occasional’ rhinoplasty surgeons. They might do nasal reshaping or cosmetic enhancement of a nose once a month or even less frequently. As a rhinoplasty expert and revision rhinoplasty specialist I can tell you without any hesitation at all that this is a setup for disappointment for both surgeon and patient. I cannot stress enough how important it is to perform rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgery on a very consistent basis. Cosmetic nose reshaping is arguably the most difficult plastic surgery procedure to perform. If you do this occasionally, you will get the occasional successful outcome. If you are a rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty specialist, you are much more likely to achieve the best rhinoplasty outcomes with the highest chance of the desired rhinoplasty result.
