How to find a plastic surgeon in your area
Finding several plastic surgeons in your area to consult with regarding your procedure is very easy to do and you can do it right from your computer. Start with our main society, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, at www.plasticsurgery.org. This site will allow you to search for several well qualified surgeons in your area. If you want to make sure your plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, check out www.abplsurg.org. Click on the area that says "Is your surgeon board certified?" to get the answer. Being board certified and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons requires thorough training, extensive examinations, and continuing education. You should be in "good hands" by finding your plastic surgeon this way.
Rhinoplasty in the Carolinas
I know of no one in the three state area that “specializes” in rhinoplasty. However, there are a number of very good board certified Plastic and ENT surgeons with significant experience in rhinoplasty. It helps to have training from both specialties to take care of both functional and cosmetic problems. You also want to know what the follow-up is, since it takes a year or longer to achiever the eventual result, and there is always the possibility of needing an injection or other minor correction. Since the nose is part of your persona, make sure you can talk to your surgeon and express exactly what bothers you and what you would like changed. Your surgeon should use these factors in deciding what to do, not just do a standard procedure.
