Best Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon in the USA?

Hi. When I was 19, I had a nose job the doctor gave me a small short and pointy tip. I need revision and I would like to come to the USA before I make the journey to America.

I need to find out how risky is it? I have seen some before and after photos of some doctors but not sure who is the best doctor in America. I need to know the doctors and whose work is the best. PLEASE HELP

You cannot go wrong with Dean Toriumi (Chicago), J. Regan Thomas (Chicago), Rick Davis (Florida East Coast), Jack Gunter (Texas), Peter Adamson (Toronto), Toby Mayer (Beverly Hills), and Rod Rohrich (Texas).  All have a wealth of experience and specialize in revision Rhinoplasty.

Best Revision Rhinoplasty surgeon

I would chose Dr. Jack Gunter, in Dallas, Texas for any revision rhinoplasty. Google his name to send him an e-mail. Best of Luck!

The best revision rhinoplasty surgeon

There are many good reputable revision rhinoplasty experts in the United States. I certainly would go to one who has done many primary and revision rhinoplasties and where that is a major part of their practice. Since you are flying from overseas, you might want one where there is an accessible city like Chicago, New York, Houston, Texas. I would recommend Dr. Dean Toriumi in Chicago, Dr. Minas Constanides in New York City and Dr. Russell Kridel in Houston, Texas. Since you are coming from overseas Australia that might be the easiest place to get in and out of. I hope this information helps.

Best Revision Rhinoplasty Surgeon in the US

I hope you realize that the term BEST does not apply in Medicine. Unlike sports, we do not have races or contests in which hundreds of noses or Face lifts are done at the same time in elimination bouts.

Fame as "the Best" is usually generated with a lot of money spent on PR agents who constantly "place and pitch" you to media outlets. You probably have very good surgeons in the UK who did not seek the limelight and are just as competent as some of the more famous surgeons.

On the other hand, some in our ranks have become known for lecturing extensively on certain topics and have become THE go to people in that area. When it comes to Revision Rhinoplasty - Dr. Jack Gunther of Dallas is one of the best in the world. He takes on some of the worst cases and many doctors see him for their nose surgeries.

There is no "best"

"Best" will be up to you.  Your happiness with any result is a combination of surgical skill, but also interaction with the surgeon, goals, realism about the potential for additional surgery, and soon.  Your nose has been overshortened, which means that you need lengthening, more bridge height (those are related),  and reduction of nostril visibility.  In my hands, this would probably take two operations, about a year apart.  There are limits to what can be accomplished.  That is why an excellent surgeon-patient relationship is paramount.


Find a surgeon whose results you like--as long as they are noses like yours--and someone you trust..

Best Rhinoplasty surgeon in USA

There is no such thing as "The Best". With internet access, you have the opportunity to find experienced surgeons, evaluate their aesthetic tastes and see surgical results. Then you can schedule consultations with a limited number of revision rhinoplasty surgeons - a face to face discussion will help you make your final decision.

Revision Rhinoplasty in the United States

I would encourage you to consult with Jack Gunter or Rod Rohrich in Dallas, TX. They both do a large volume of revision rhinoplasty procedures and both see out of town patients. I have spent a significant amount of time with both surgeons and both are great. Coming from such a long way you would have the ability to see both in Dallas to limit travel time and expense.

I hope this helps.

Best is a relative term.

There is no "Best" surgeon in any particular surgical category.  I have seen a surgeon who was mentioned by many other colleagues on this post as one of the Best, have a complication during a live surgery at a national meeting.  Did he correct it?  Yes.  Could it have been avoided?  Yes.  There are many highly qualified surgeons and it is important that you find one that suits your financial and geographical needs, understands your surgical goals, and provides a safe and clear path to achieving those goals.  Be wary of any Surgeon who claims to be the Best -- usually anyone who does this is far from it.   Choose a surgeon that has a large gallery of before and after photos to see their particular outcomes, that is boards certified, that has a clean history and has good reviews from peers and patients alike.  The surgeon you choose will have an impact on your life and should be someone you feel comfortable with.  Good Luck!
