So I assume most of you seeking revision nose surgery have seen different lists of "who are the best nose revision surgeons" recommended online and have noted which surgeons appear repeatedly, and you have searched forums and other sites to see what others have to say about each of them.Which is all good. But now that you have your own "A" list, narrowed down to let's say a half dozen, your having difficulty deciding which two or three to consult with for various reasons. You may of just read a bad review about the surgeon you were so keen to seeing in person, called their office and realized that surgeon's prices are way out of your price range, or spoke to that surgeon by phone or in person and didn't like the way you were treated or something or other.
So the point I want to make is, rather then driving yourself obsessively crazy by limiting your quest with "who's the best revision nose surgeon in the world or USA or Europe" It would be wise to ask "What surgeons or type of surgeons should I be avoiding" so I don't make the same mistake again of choosing a similar type of surgeon. Note: I don't mean to blame the patient, because sometimes we can take all the right steps and yet not get the results we were hoping for or were promised! STEP 1. [make a list of things you didn't like about your last surgeon(s)]. This should help you towards finding a surgeon who you feel understands you (on the same page), cares about his/her patients, and has the expertise and proven experience of getting the job done. STEP 2.[make a list of things your looking for in your next surgeon].ie. You will want to find out what percentage of his/her practice is devoted to Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty in conjunction with their experience in performing the type of surgery you require. If you have had a lot of reductive nose surgery therefore requiring a lot of reconstruction surgery, then you will need an experienced revision nose surgeon who has performed many major types of reconstructive nose surgery's. STEP 3. After researching [information websites like this blog, using internet forums, rating sites, realself.com where some surgeon's recommend or speak highly of other surgeon's, etc..] and seeing a few surgeons who you had at the top of your list, decide which one you have the most confidence in and feel comfortable with. Your decision may come down to liking one surgeon's methods better then another's. i.e.) maybe you prefer your own cartilage rather then synthetic material in your nose, or prefer closed approach over open, or like some other technique one surgeon use's that other's don't. You need to discover what the surgeon's exact plans are for your nose surgery and be comfortable with it.
This I feel should help direct your focus in the right direction and alleviate some of your understandable fears and obsessions with finding out or limiting yourself to, who's Numero Uno. It's really a process, a process of elimination to finding the right surgeon(s) for your specific case (which there may be more then one, two or three surgeons) which therefore suggests there is no best revision nose surgeon for all cases. Hope that's of some help!
Note: Your list can include things you didn't like about the surgeons surgical center, after care offered, etc...
