(HealthNewsDigest.com) - The results of a rhinoplasty, especially when performed by an unskilled plastic surgeon, can be unpredictable. The nose is composed of a number of tissues including bone, cartilage, blood vessels, and skin, so the final formation of these tissues is dependent on a number of factors. Some estimates place the revision rate for primary rhinoplasty at an average of 15%, with rates significantly higher among inexperienced surgeons and significantly lower among experienced ones. This article provides tips on choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform your revision rhinoplasty surgery so you end up with a secondary nose surgery result that you love.

Tip # 1: A facial plastic surgeon is the ideal choice for revision rhinoplasty.

Some plastic surgeons perform work on the face and body, but it is preferable to undergo facial surgeries with a surgeon who specializes in facial anatomy. This is because many facial plastic surgeons have studied the head and neck far more extensively than doctors who focus on the whole body. Andrew S. Frankel, MD, FACS is board certified in both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Ear Nose and Throat). These qualifications are ideal for facial plastic surgery candidates. In addition to his education, Dr. Frankel specializes in performing both rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgeries.

Tip # 2: Read patient reviews of facial plastic surgeons.

A great way to learn about patient experiences with a certain facial plastic surgeon is to read online reviews from others who have visited the doctor for a similar procedure. This can help prepare new potential patients with questions and a navigation of the process. On the Real Self website, Dr. Frankel is featured in a number of patient commentaries. Some excerpts read:

"He really is one of the best if not the best." - Teatrix

"I would definitely recommend Dr. Frankel because he specializes in the face and isn't a general plastic surgeon. You can tell his level of expertise just by looking at his before and after pictures and by talking to him." - mirandaeugenia464

Tip # 3: Look at before-and-after photos.

As suggested by the last satisfied patient, it is especially helpful to view the surgeon's prior work on real-life patients. View Dr. Frankel's Photo Gallery to learn how other patients' concerns have been remedied through plastic surgery. Descriptions accompany each patient's pictures, of which there are multiple views.

The results exemplify Dr. Frankel's motto, which is "My aim is not to camouflage, but to shape the nose so that it is balanced and harmonious with the rest of the face." Call the doctor's Beverly Hills, California office at (310) 552-2173 to schedule a consultation where you can learn more about rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty surgery.
