When patients are unhappy with an original rhinoplasty, they have a tough decision ahead: who can they trust to do the best possible job?
Picking a surgeon requires a lot of research, but luckily with the internet and various online forums offering both information and real reviews, it is easy enough to be diligent sleuths. Of course, before trying to evaluate surgeons it is useful to have some criteria, starting with a background check of the surgeons themselves.
Experience and Approach
Not all surgeons have the same experience. Some only perform certain types of rhinoplasty, while others specialize in specific issues. Some surgeons perform surgery on the whole body, from breast implants to various kinds of surgical remodeling of bodies and faces. A few, such as Dr. Bustillo, specialize in facial surgery.
In fact, Dr. Bustillo performs over 300 nasal surgery procedures yearly, both revision and primary rhinoplasty surgeries. Aside from the refinement of technique, there’s another advantage to picking a very experienced surgeon: they will have worked with a variety of different nationalities and ethnicities, allowing them to perfect their approach so that the end results look as natural as possible.
While it is Dr. Bustillo’s experience that enables him to deliver natural, ethnically sensitive results, all surgeons have a roughly equivalent education and background before they enter practice. However, it is worth researching areas of their education, ongoing education and application of the technological advances in their field.
Education and Technology
It is important to fully appreciate the background of the surgeon, as well as the extent to which they pass on their expertise. Dr. Bustillo regularly contributes to journals focused onrhinoplasty and facial plastic and cosmetic surgery techniques.
By teaching, he stays abreast of the current trends and advances, and has the chance to integrate the new advances into his own practice. The same goes for the use of new technology, such as advanced computer imaging, to help patients visualize the results that Dr. Bustillo already sees in his mind’s eye. This ensures that the surgery has the best chance of success, and that the patient’s expectations are matched by Dr. Bustillo’s.
All in all, it is clear that researching your surgeon pays dividends. In fact, the reason why people fly to Florida to become Dr. Bustillo’s patients is because they have taken the time to research who will give them the results they want. All noses and all expectations are different, but Dr. Bustillo takes pride in performing the most natural nose job possible, and making sure that his clients are ecstatic with the result.
