Rhinoplasty Most Common Facial Plastic Surgery

I was recently quoted in Houston on how rhinoplasty or nose job surgery has become the most common cosmetic facial plastic procedure as reported by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. There has been a surge in male rhinoplasty and close to 1/3 of rhinoplasty patients today are men. The average facial plastic surgeon performed 37 rhinoplasties in 2012 and average plastic surgeon performs 11. I have found that I perform close to 100 rhinoplasties per year and this continues to grow. Many of these patients have functional nasal breathing issues in addition to their cosmetic concerns.

The amount of rhinoplasty surgeons has been declining throughout the years. It is important to choose a board certified surgeon with much rhinoplasty experience for your surgery.
