One of the most important factors which could influence the outcome of your rhinoplasty is the plastic surgeon who will perform the operation. While rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures done today, finding a surgeon who has both the experience and expertise in nose enhancement surgeries could prove to be difficult. At Divino Plastic Surgery in San Diego,  we take great care and effort to educate and  share what is best for our clients. Continue reading to find out how to choose the right San Diego rhinoplasty surgeon for a satisfactory outcome.

Valid Medical License and Specific Training

A practicing plastic surgeon should have a valid medical license which guarantees that the doctor has gone through medical school and the required internships and residencies.

Additionally, it is important to make sure that your surgeon has specific training and experience with rhinoplasty procedures.


By and large, plastic surgeons who specialize in a certain niche like rhinoplasty are most likely to be more skillful and knowledgeable of the latest nose enhancing techniques.


There are generally two types of plastic surgeon endorsements: word-of-mouth and Internet. Consider choosing a plastic surgeon whom your friends and family are endorsing. Ask about the favorable surgical outcomes, the surgeon’s bedside manners, and responsiveness to patient queries particularly concerning postoperative care.

Meanwhile, you can also check Internet endorsements such as opinions and reviews posted in message boards and online forums.  Be sure to also visit your prospective surgeon’s website for more information about their training and experience, as well as their practice.

Surgical Portfolio

A practitioner’s surgical portfolio is one of the most effective ways to assess a rhinoplasty surgeon’s skills and expertise. Ask for a surgeon’s before and after photographs and pay special attention to multiple views of the photos rather than just profile views.

Quality Initial Consultation

Another important factor when choosing the right rhinoplasty surgeon for you is the quality of your initial visit to the doctor. Are you comfortable during the consultation? Were all your questions answered? Are you satisfied with the answers? Do you now understand all aspects of the procedure?

Keep in mind that it is during the consultation that you get to ultimately assess whether you should entrust your rhinoplasty needs to a particular plastic surgeon.
