Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013
With Internet use at an all time high around the world, Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, has recently published an article discussing the importance of utilizing the web to review your surgeon before undergoing any cosmetic procedure. This is not only important for determining the overall reviews of a doctor, but also to ensure that you’re visiting a surgeon that can be trusted and has brought life changing results to plenty of individuals.
“Internet users should be aware that it’s important to look beyond the testimonials on a surgeon’s website. Today, there are hundreds of reputable doctor review sties where patients can post their own experiences, share stories, and recommend physicians,” said Dr. Babak Azizzadeh. "The Internet is available to just about everyone--it's important to utilize it to the best of your ability when researching a potential doctor."
Among the most popular review sites for doctors today include Yelp.com, RealSelf.com, and Vitals.com, all of which allow users to post detailed descriptions about their experience with a surgeon, their staff, and most importantly, their final results. When seeking a potentially life-altering procedure like a rhinoplasty, the importance of doing your own thorough research has never been more significant. Aside from seeking a doctor’s online reputation, it’s also important to understand their background and training, as this will greatly influence the results that they can produce for you.
“A rhinoplasty is a very complex and intricate procedure that requires the highest level of attention to detail. It’s extremely important to make sure your doctor has produced results for other patients similar to the results you’re seeking. I often recommend asking to see a surgeon’s before and after photo’s before electing to undergo the procedure with them,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
When performing a rhinoplasty for his patients in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh believes that each procedure should be completely customized to meet their unique needs and goals. Doing so requires taking the patient's race, gender, facial shape, and end results into consideration when sculpting a new nasal appearance.
“Tailoring a rhinoplasty specifically to the individual is the only way to bring facial balance to the patient. Doing this allows the most natural result to be achieved,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
