Revision Rhinoplasty Surprisingly Common

By Houston Nose Surgery Specialist, Dr. Michel Siegel

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - According to Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Michel Siegel, re-doing rhinoplasty or nose surgery is actually very common. "In fact," the Doctor says, "getting the nose just right for a patient is by far the most challenging cosmetic surgery to perform on the face."

Results of rhinoplasty are dependent on the surgeon, his skills, his sense of aesthetics, as well as how each individual heals after the operation. Even when a surgeon does everything in his power to do the operation well, he cannot control how the body heals postoperatively. Neither the patient nor the doctor may be able to control the healing after surgery, but a patient may maximize chances of getting the desired result by choosing the right doctor.

Dr. Michel Siegel specializes in facial plastic surgery and is an expert in rhinoplasty. A surprising 40% of the rhinoplasties he performs are revision rhinoplasties where he redoes the work of other surgeons. Nevertheless, even a surgeon who is highly skilled and specializes in rhinoplasty typically performs revisions on 5% or less of his own patients. Consequently, it is not only important to know the credentials and specialties of the surgeon, it is important to ask the number of rhinoplasties performed and his revision rate.

Dr. Michel Siegel is double board certified by The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by The American Board of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery. Among his many memberships and fellowship to various reputable medical groups, he is also a member of The American Rhinologic Society.
