When choosing a revision rhinoplasty specialist they should have several Before/ After photos available to you displaying a wide variety rhinoplasty patients. You want a surgeon who is performing several revisions a week so you can be secure they have seen it all and can trouble shoot any curve balls they might occur on the operation table.
Most important is that you thoroughly research several doctors and consult with them all. It is up to you to ask how many primary rhinoplasties they do, how many revisions and what the bulk of the practices. Above all, make sure they are a board certified facial plastic surgeon, specializing in the ear, nose and throat. This means extensive experience with nasal anatomy, breathing functions and structures.
Also talking to patients of theirs, if possible and of course, studying the Before/After photo galleries is vital. You want to feel comfortable enough to ask them anything and to feel unapologetic about it. It may even take several consultations with the same doctor until you feel comfortable enough to settle on a game plan. A doctor who takes his time is honest and totally frank about expectation management is a good sign.
