If you’re looking to have a nose job in the near future, you might wonder how to find the best rhinoplasty surgeon. Choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon is a key factor in the success of your surgery, so it is crucial to take your time and do some research to find a proficient doctor who meets the qualifications to perform your nose operation. Keep reading to the end to find out how to choose a rhinoplasty surgeon that suits you best.
Check if surgeon is board-certified
As the first step in the process of selecting a rhinoplasty surgeon you should make sure that the surgeon is board-certified. A board-certified physician or surgeon is one who has finished essential trainings and successfully passed the relevant exams to receive a certificate in their respective specialty to practice medicine and do surgery.
Rhinoplasty surgeons are either board-certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery or ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialty. However, all physicians who have board certifications in plastic surgery or ENT are not rhinoplasty specialists. Apart from the ENT specialists who may not do cosmetic surgery, even those who perform cosmetic procedures too might not be expert in rhinoplasty. Therefore, while board-certification should be regarded as a necessary prerequisite for a rhinoplasty doctor, you should not stop at this point.
Assess surgeon’s experience and expertise
The experience of a surgeon in performing rhinoplasty is a big factor in making them a good choice for your nose operation. It is important to get some information about the surgeon’s experience and the number of nose surgeries they have performed throughout their career as a rhinoplasty surgeon.
Make sure to do some online or offline research about the professional background of the prospective surgeons and read their resumes. Doctors who have done thousands of nose operations are more experienced and more likely to be more skilled than novice surgeons who are at the beginning of their career.
See before and after photos
The knowledge and expertise of a rhinoplasty surgeon is manifested in the results they deliver to their patients. The before and after photos of a rhinoplasty surgeon are in fact a portfolio of their work and are a great way to assess the skills and style of a nose surgeon.
More importantly, by surveying the before and after photos you can see the results of the surgery on noses similar to yours – in terms of size and shape – and get a rough image of your nose after your potential surgery with that particular surgeon. This is very important because some doctors may be better in certain cases, i.e. one may be more skilled at operating on boney noses and another on fleshy noses.
Also, as to the different nose job styles, some rhinoplasty surgeons might be more competent in a particular style. For instance, a doctor may be well-known for their ‘ski-jump’ nose jobs (dolly nose), so that they can be a great option if you wish to have a small, upturned nose.

Talk to surgeon’s previous patients
Talking directly to people who had a nose surgery is a great way to get first-hand information about a rhinoplasty surgeon. So if a friend or relative of yours has undergone a nose surgery, make sure to talk to them about their experience and whether they are happy with their choice of doctor.
Not only these people can tell you about their level of satisfaction about their experience with a surgeon, but also you can see for yourself the result of their surgery.
Evaluate surgeon’s communication with patients
The pre-operative consultation before a rhinoplasty is of crucial importance because it is a time for the patient to talk to the doctor about their desires and express their concerns about the procedure. A good rhinoplasty surgeon is one who patiently listens to you during the pre-op consultation and devote a lot of time to make everything clear for you, including the procedure, potential risks, and how to take care of yourself after the surgery.
Additionally, the surgeon should be able to talk to you in a way that minimizes your stress before the surgery and show willingness to answer all your questions about everything related to the surgery.
So even if the surgeon is highly skilled, they won’t be able to satisfy you if they don’t understand your expectations. They need to clearly understand what you want in order to be able to deliver the desired results. Therefore, you should pay special attention to the ability of the doctor to communicate well with the patient and choose a rhinoplasty surgeon who is good at establishing strong doctor-patient relationship.
Of course, you may not be able to learn about a rhinoplasty surgeon’s pre-op consultation atmosphere until you meet them in person. But there are still a few ways to do so. One is what we talked about in the previous section, which is using feedback from people who had nose job before.
Another way is by watching the videos of the surgeon talking to their patients before or after surgery. Many cosmetic surgeons have YouTube or social media channels where they post their patient testimonial videos and videos of their consultation with their patients

I like to do nosejob im not sure about surgeon. which one do you suggest? a doctor with Ear nose and throat specialty or a doctor with plastic surgery spacial?
Dear Evelon, both plastic surgery and ENT specialists can be great rhinoplasty surgeons if they have had adequate training in nose surgery. ENT specialists may be able to address the functional problems of the nose such as a deviated septum but they need to pass a fellowship in facial plastic surgery to become qualified to perform cosmetic rhinoplasty. On the other hand, general plastic surgeons also need to complete the necessary training in facial surgery to be qualified enough for this surgery. So it doesn’t make much difference which specialist you go for, it’s more about choosing someone who have a lot of experience in rhinoplasty, someone who has done thousands of surgeries and knows everything about this procedure.
