Revision rhinoplasty is an extremely specialized surgical procedure that often occurs because of discomfort and/or distress over a botched job.
Like Dr. Bustillo states on his Revision Rhinoplasty FAQ,“as more and more inexperienced plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasties, there are an increasing number of dissatisfied patients with their rhinoplasty results.”
Add to this the fact that many surgeons carry out surgery on the body as well as the face, and it becomes increasingly obvious that finding a true specialist to perform corrective surgery is one of the key reasons that patients travel from as far away as Europe to take advantage of Dr. Bustillo’s skills.
What Makes Dr. Bustillo Worth the Trip?
Patients choose Dr. Bustillo for their revision rhinoplasty surgery because he has a reputation for achieving natural-looking conservative results and invests time in preparation and patient education over and above what other surgeons often find adequate.
In the vast majority of cases, patients are suffering from either functional issues related to a failed surgery, or hate the appearance of the new nose. They just want to return the nose to a state of normalcy.
Being able to achieve a natural-looking result is a priority for his patients, and they believe Dr. Bustillo is the doctor to deliver. That’s why they travel from as far as they do. While such an experienced and acclaimed surgeon commands a large fee, patients find that these fees are not excessive and certainly worth the investment; and in some cases, health insurance companies will cover the cost of returning breathing function to the nose.
The pre- and post-operative care is also a factor when choosing a surgeon. During the consultation, Dr. Bustillo uses advanced computer imaging to create a photograph of the nose prior to surgery and an image of the expected outcome of the surgery. He also has a patient care coordinator who ensures that patients are cared for to the highest standard, and who will explain all the details of the surgery’s scheduling.
Naturally, the surgical environment is also very important, and it goes without saying that the facilities chosen by Dr. Bustillo are not only AAAASF certified, but the staff is highly trained. Dr. Bustillo insists that only board certified anesthesiologists participate, and uses only general anesthesia, leaving him free to concentrate on the procedure, which is often made more complex by the need to extract grafts to use in the reconstruction of the nose.
Patients don’t want to risk their noses twice. That’s why they turn to Dr. Bustillo, traveling from all over the world to make sure to get it right.
Dr. Bustillo’s practice can be contacted on (305) 663-3380, or via the website. The initial consultation will be used to set the scene for the surgery, and go through the surgical plan. Dr. Bustillo finds that if he educates patients before the surgery it helps them to have a positive experience, and in many cases they are pleasantly surprised with the end result.
