Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
Dr. Rod J. Rohrich has been named one of the best doctors in Dallas in the area of plastic and cosmetic surgery by D Magazine in the October issue focusing on top physicians in Dallas. D Magazine releases its peer-reviewed list of best doctors annually to highlight superb physicians practicing in the Dallas and Fort Worth metroplex. Dr. Rohrich currently serves as professor and chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
704 top physicians were chosen by their peers in 43 specialties. The Best Doctors listings are especially renowned in the Dallas area because they are selected by a peer-review process and are free of paid inclusions.
A longstanding advocate of patient safety, Dr. Rohrich believes the D Magazine physician listings can patients make more informed decisions. "The most important factor in all of plastic surgery, the one which determines your safety and outcome, is who you choose as your plastic surgeon," explains Dr. Rohrich.
"Some people spend more time choosing a pair of shoes than choosing their plastic surgeon," quips Dr. Rohrich, who sees many patients that need corrective secondary surgery because of mishaps or mistakes made by improperly trained or inexperienced surgeons. Up to half of all his Dallas rhinoplasty patients, for example, are coming to see him for secondary rhinoplasty to correct poor results.
"Always choose your surgeon wisely and carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a satisfactory and safe outcome," says Dr. Rohrich.
