5 Questions to Ask Your Hispanic Rhinoplasty Surgeon

For a successful Hispanic rhinoplasty, our best advice is to choose the right surgeon. With so many potential doctors ready and waiting to perform this procedure, how is a patient to choose? Asking questions can help you to narrow the field and assess a potential surgeon’s qualifications. Here are five questions you should ask any Hispanic rhinoplasty surgeon on your list.

Are You a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

Board certification sets a doctor apart from the rest. To receive board certification, a surgeon must demonstrate his or her skill and training in a particular medical specialty. Board certification is not required. Dr. Sajjadian is one of a few plastic surgeons to hold board certification by three medical boards: the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Choose a board certified doctor for your Hispanic rhinoplasty.

Are You an Expert in Rhinoplasty?

You don’t have to be a rhinoplasty expert to perform rhinoplasty surgeries, but a patient who wants the best results should work with a rhinoplasty expert. Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery and, for patients with an ethnic heritage (including patients of a Hispanic descent), a skilled surgeon is crucial. Hispanic patients may have thicker, oilier skin, weak cartilage, larger nostrils, a hump, and/or a bulbous tip. A skilled rhinoplasty surgeon who has specific experience performing ethnic rhinoplasties will get you the best possible results. He will also help you to avoid complications and potential future surgeries.

Dr. Sajjadian is a member of The Rhinoplasty Society, holds triple board certification, and has authored over 75 book chapters, manuscripts, and abstracts on plastic surgery. He frequently  lectures on various techniques on a national and international level, and is widely considered to be an expert in Caucasian and natural looking ethnic rhinoplasty for both males and females. In fact, many of his patients proudly proclaim him as “The Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon”.

What Results Can I Expect from My Hispanic Rhinoplasty?

Make sure you and your surgeon are on the same page when it comes to potential rhinoplasty results. Ask what results you can expect after surgery, and find out what changes your surgeon plans on making. The ideal Hispanic rhinoplasty results will be natural looking, retaining your ethnic appearance while perfecting the aesthetics of your nose.

Can I See Examples of Your Past Work?

Plastic surgery is part surgery, part art. Ask to see photographs of former rhinoplasty patients so you can get an idea of what results to expect. Ask to see specific photos of Hispanic rhinoplasties and other ethnic rhinoplasty surgeries.

Am I a Good Candidate for Hispanic Rhinoplasty?

If you’re interested in Hispanic rhinoplasty, you need to meet with a qualified, board certified surgeon to find out if you’re a good candidate. After a thorough examination and discussion of your medical history, he or she can help you determine if rhinoplasty is the right choice.
