What to Look for When Choosing a Manhattan Rhinoplasty Surgeon
When choosing a plastic surgeon for a New York rhinoplasty procedure, most people start by asking friends for recommendations. That’s a good starting point, but make sure you’re comparing apples to apples.
The cosmetic surgeon your friend raved about after undergoing abdominal liposuction may do hundreds of liposuction procedures a year on the waist and thighs but only one or two rhinoplasties. A good choice for eliminating love handles, your friend’s plastic surgeon may lack the expert knowledge and dedicated experience in facial plastic surgery, and specifically in rhinoplasty, necessary to produce desirable results. For superior rhinoplasty results, choose a Manhattan facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Edward Kwak who devotes his practice solely to plastic surgery of the face and neck and is a recognized rhinoplasty expert. When you undergo rhinoplasty, you wear the results of your surgery on your face for all to see. Don’t you deserve the best?
Look for the following when choosing a NY rhinoplasty surgeon:
- Beyond requirements for plastic surgery board certification, board certified facial plastic surgeons must meet additional education and experience requirements specifically related to plastic surgery of the face. Dr. Kwak has attained board certification in both facial plastic surgery and head and neck surgery.
- Facial plastic surgeons like Dr. Kwak that limit their practice to facial plastic surgery are specialists that regularly perform rhinoplasty. In the course of their career, rhinoplasty specialists may perform hundreds, even thousands of rhinoplasty procedures.
- Facial plastic surgeons that are selected to teach have achieved the highest level of expertise in their field. Dr. Kwak is a Clinical Assistant Professor in Head & Neck Surgery at The New York Medical College and teaches facial plastic surgery techniques at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. He is frequently invited to lecture on advanced Rhinoplasty techniques and has written articles and book chapters on the subject.
