How to Choose a Rhinoplasty Surgeon
We all have one, and for many the nose causes much embarrassment. Centered right smack dab in the center of our face, it is one of the first things people see when they meet you. Some are fortunate to have a great nose and symmetry, but for many the nose causes anxiety and embarrassment.
Dr. Richard Balikian, a Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in Temecula and Del Mar CA, specializes in rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Balikian says “Rhinoplasty surgery is by far one of the most transformational surgeries we perform. Many times people cry with excitement when they see their new nose. Imagine having years or decades of embarrassment and anxiety about your looks and in a moment it is gone. It can be very emotional for some.”
Is Rhinoplasty right for you?
If your nose causes you embarrassment and you find yourself constantly looking in the mirror wishing it was different, then rhinoplasty is something you should consider. When considering rhinoplasty, don’t price shop or you will regret it later. Many surgeons perform rhinoplasty but not all rhinoplasty procedures are done well. Rhinoplasty is considered one of the most difficult cosmetic surgeries and requires a seasoned and skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Balikian says that a good portion of his rhinoplasty procedures are revision rhinoplastys. Many patients end up having the procedure twice because their first surgeon did a poor job.
Rhinoplasty is very much like sculpting and requires an artist’s eye. Dr. Balikian says when searching for a qualified rhinoplasty surgeon for your surgery to thoroughly look at the plastic surgeons before and after galleries. Go with someone your trust can make your nose look great and make sure you breath well too.
