Selecting the Right Cosmetic Surgeon for Rhinoplasty in NY

A major factor in a successful rhinoplasty in New York is an experienced surgeon. Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging procedures because the slightest changes can make the biggest difference. Finding the right facial cosmetic surgeon for your rhinoplasty in NYC requires researching several factors, including:

Necessary Requirements

To perform a rhinoplasty in NYC or any of the 50 states, a physician must have a medical license free from infractions and be board-certified.

Expertise

Because a rhinoplasty requires expert knowledge of facial anatomy, it is highly recommended that you select a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Jennifer Levine is a double-board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Board of Otolaryngology – head and neck surgery – giving her a unique knowledge of the face and its underlying structures.

Expertise in ethnic rhinoplasty is also an important consideration for patients of Asian or African descent. Because ideal facial proportions vary for patients of different ethnicities, it can be beneficial to find a board-certified rhinoplasty expert for your ethnicity.

Testimonials & Before and After

Part of checking expertise is reviewing testimonials as well as before & after photos. Both will give you a good idea of whether the plastic surgeon is a good fit for you.

When browsing before and after photos, take note of how the outcome appears. Does it look natural? Has the overall appearance of the face improved? Dr. Levine specializes in creating believable results, which harmonize the patient’s overall facial features rather than change them.

Consultation

When you have narrowed down your options to 2-3 facial plastic surgeons from the initial search, schedule in-person consultations. Prior to the consultation, consider the type of nose improvement you are going for. If a celebrity has the nose you are going for, bring in a photo to your consultation.

When arriving for your consultation, note the ease of the process and your overall experience at the office, including how organized and welcoming the staff is. During the consultation, take the time to ask questions and discuss your overall aesthetic goals.
