Similarly you should seek out a rhinoplasty surgeon who does a lot of rhinoplasty. It is unlikely that surgeon will also regularly do sinus surgeries.
The "best doc who can do both" is not going to be the best sinus surgeon, or the best rhinoplasty surgeon. You can't afford to compromise in either of these, and I want to encourage you to reconsider "one-stop shopping" as far as these complicated and technically challenging surgeries go.
My recommendation is to have your sinus surgery treated by a sinus specialist in your area, someone with whom you can follow-up after surgery to inspect your nose for recurrence of polyps. Then schedule a couple of consultations with rhinoplasty surgeons to discuss your goals for a nose-reshaping surgery.

Open rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform an Open Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base and nostrils, with nasal bones treatment (controled fracture) and alar + triangular nasal cartilages re-shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.Kind regards,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-
