The tips below will help you select just the right surgeon to achieve an excellent result form your revision rhinoplasty.

Whether you only need a small tweak to get your nose into perfect shape or if you need a major revision to your primary nose job, surgical skill, years of experience and excellent two-way communication must be high on your list of qualifications for your new plastic surgeon. When you set your sights on finding a true revision rhinoplasty specialist, you can expect a great improvement on your prior nose job and an attractive, natural result.

Finding the Right Surgeon — Don’t Rush It

Choosing the right surgeon for revision rhinoplasty in NJ really makes the difference for most patients between a botched result, a so-so result and a happy result that you will love. If you select a truly elite plastic surgeon specializing in revision rhinoplasty (or reconstructive rhinoplasty for the highest level of skill), the surgeon will likely have the surgical acumen to produce a decent result—but if you hold out for a surgeon that you really communicate well with, someone who is really dedicated to your wellbeing, results can be amazing.

After having gone through rhinoplasty once already, you really deserve an amazing result. I know you are anxious to get your nose fixed right away, but don’t rush into anything. Don’t rush your choice of surgeon. When you find the right one, you’ll know, and your patience will have been worthwhile. Take your time, find the right surgeon and go for that amazing revision rhinoplasty outcome.

Accept Top Qualifications Only

Here’s what to look for:

Choose an NJ Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon with Years of Post Grad Education

Surgeons with the best, most thorough training go through a similar path. The surgeon will typically complete training and become board certified (by the American Board of Surgery) in general surgery, then pursue plastic surgery training and experience and become board certified in plastic surgery. Look for board certification in plastic surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Make Sure Your Plastic Surgeon is Focused on Revision Rhinoplasty

Your best choice surgeon does a lot of revision rhinoplasty surgeries. Ask your surgeon how many he or she performs weekly, annually, etc. The surgeon should spend most of their time on this type of surgery to develop the necessary skills and surgical judgement to produce consistently excellent revision rhinoplasty outcomes.

Pick a Surgeon with Advanced Skills

Choose a surgeon with a background in reconstructive surgery. This surgeon will have most familiarity with creating a strong, functional nose that also looks great. The nasal bones and tissues are actually quite delicate and require surgical precision combined with a gentle touch to reshape, adjust or graft. Even if the changes being made to your nose appear minor, there are many factors that must be weighed when choosing and executing the proper surgical solution. Don’t worry that your surgeon may be overqualified–go for the very best in the field.

Select an Industry Leader to Perform Your Revision Rhinoplasty in NJ

Your ideal plastic surgeon for revision rhinoplasty should have a history of holding responsible position(s) at a hospital, such as department chair, director position, board member and/or committee member. The surgeon is typically in a position to mentor other surgeons, holds memberships in professional organizations and shows other signs of passion for and interest in the field. Choose a surgeon with his or her name on the practice.

Choose a Surgeon with a Modern Safety-Accredited Surgery Center Right Next Door

At the northern NJ offices of Cohen/Winters, our revision rhinoplasties are typically performed in our accredited, doctor owned surgery center adjacent to our offices. There you are cared for by your revision rhinoplasty specialist plastic surgeon, a top anesthesiologist (a specialist MD), excellent nurses and medical support staff. The Vanguard Surgery Center has a stellar record of excellence in patient care and safety.

Partner with An Elite Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon in NJ

Work with a surgeon who shows these qualities:

Choose a Rhinoplasty Surgeon Who is a People Person

Some plastic surgeons concentrate mainly on the technical side of their surgical work. Of course, you need a surgeon with precise technique and top level surgical skill, but planning is crucial as well—especially in revision rhinoplasty. You don’t want a surgeon to only fix your nose, you want him or her to fix it the right way. You want an outcome that appeals to you personally. So you need a surgeon who cares deeply about providing a result you will love. You will be able to tell if your NJ revision rhinoplasty specialist has this quality when you meet. Basically, I advise you to seek a surgeon who is passionate about improving the lives of his or her patients.

Choose a NJ Plastic Surgeon Who is Upfront

At the same time, you need honesty. You need a surgeon who will let you know if your goal for revision rhinoplasty is not anatomically feasible or desirable. Your surgeon’s vast experience can help you understand what you can expect from your surgery and which solutions will work best. Honesty and clarity from your surgeon is a signal that you can trust him or her. You really need that trust relationship for a successful revision rhinoplasty.

Choose a Revision Rhinoplasty Specialist in NJ with an Artistic Vision

Select a surgeon who has a knack for aesthetics; the artistic side of rhinoplasty, in addition to their other qualifications like years of experience and surgical skill. You’ll get a good sense of this as you discuss rhinoplasty goals you’re your NJ plastic surgeon. Of course, looking carefully at the surgeon’s portfolio of prior work will also help build your confidence if the surgeon is right for you.
