No two noses are the same, which is why it’s critical to take a different approach with each patient that I treat.

Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2013

In a recent article profiling cosmetic surgery in Iran (specifically relating to the nose) it was discovered that the country’s residents experience seven times more rhinoplasties than individuals in the United States, a startling statistic for the country that only has 157 licensed plastic surgeons and nearly 7,000 performing the procedure. Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, and world-renowned rhinoplasty expert in Beverly Hills believes the safety of those receiving surgery is in grave jeopardy.

“It’s extremely unsafe to undergo any type of cosmetic surgery, especially a rhinoplasty, with a doctor who isn’t licensed. Without having the proper training to perform such an intricate procedure, the risk of displeasure, infection, nasal collapse, and even death increases tenfold,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.

In all, more than 200,000 nose jobs are performed on Iranians each year. According to the reports, women as young as fourteen undergo rhinoplasties in Iran in hopes of achieving the same nasal beauty associated with famous Hollywood A-listers in America. Of the large number of individuals seeking the procedure, roughly 30% report unsatisfactory results or severe problems with their nose.

“Even if an unlicensed rhinoplasty surgeon is able to offer his or her patients an inexpensive procedure, the good does not outweigh the bad. It’s extremely risky to do so, and I would encourage any individuals seeking a rhinoplasty to do their homework on the doctor their entrusting their face to,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.

At the Institute for Rhinoplasty & Nasal Reconstruction in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh believes the best way to achieve ideal and aesthetically pleasing results is through the development of a completely customizable procedure. When performing the procedure for individuals of different ethnic backgrounds, Dr. Azizzadeh listens to their ultimate goals while initiating a treatment that will not jeopardize their cultural identity.

“No two noses are the same, which is why it’s critical to take a different approach with each patient that I treat. To make sure a natural result is achieved, it’s necessary for the nose to be in balance with the other facial features—the eyes, the forehead, the chin, and the cheeks,” said Dr. Azizzadeh, rhinoplasty expert in Beverly Hills.

Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained sub-specialist in nasal and facial plastic surgery and is recognized as a Top Doctor by the US News & World Report for rhinoplasty. He is one of the leading experts in the fields of primary, revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is the author of five bestselling books, including the definitive rhinoplasty textbook entitled “Master Techniques in Rhinoplasty.” Dr. Azizzadeh is double-board certified in both facial plastic surgery and otolaryngology, which gives him a distinctive insight into both the aesthetics and function of the nose.
