How do I find a reputable nose reshaping surgeon (rhinoplasty)?
Finding a reputable surgeon is of vital importance. After all, you are placing your trust in their hands and so you want to be sure that this person is the best in their field.
You want a highly qualified, experienced and professional surgeon who has your wellbeing at heart.
A good place to start is your family doctor. If you are applying to the NHS for help with your treatment then you will need a letter of referral from him/her. So, it is a good idea to discuss your intentions with your GP.
Your GP will be able to refer you to a good NHS surgeon.
If you are going private then you will have to do your homework and choose your surgeon very carefully. This means asking for recommendations from people who have already had this surgery; talking to former patients at a local support group or asking for help and advice from a professional organisation.
Organisations such as The British Association of Cosmetic Surgeons, BAAPS and BAPRAS are very good places to try. The General Medical Council (GMC) is another respected source.
There are several websites which provide information on finding a surgeon. Many of them also contain a database of surgeons which is worth checking out. Try Private Healthcare UK and Cosmetic Surgery Consultants.
It is a good idea to have a shortlist of surgeons who you can talk to in turn. You can interview each one in turn until you find the surgeon who suits you best.
Most surgeons are highly qualified and experienced but unfortunately, there are a few poorly qualified or unsuitable ones and they’re the ones you want to avoid. Avoid ‘pushy’ surgeons or ones that pressurise you to have surgery. Be wary of cosmetic providers who use aggressive marketing tactics or offer ‘special deals’.
What you may find is that you can have an initial ‘short’ consultation via email or the phone which is usually free, but, you will have to pay for a full length consultation.
