Dr. Rod J. Rohrich has been selected as one of the best plastic surgeons in Dallas, Texas by D Magazine. Each year, D Magazine publishes a peer-reviewed listing of top physicians in the Dallas area, highlighting outstanding physicians in the metro area. Dr. Rohrich currently serves as a distinguished teaching professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, where his clinical focus is on cosmetic surgery He is especially sought after as a top rhinoplasty surgeon in Dallas for his work in the area of cosmetic nasal surgery and nasal reconstruction.
The prestigious "D" listing categorizes physicians by specialty. Included physicians are chosen by Dallas area doctors. The top plastic surgeons were selected by their peers in the specialty of cosmetic surgery. The Best Doctors listings are verified individually, and are free of any type of paid inclusions.
A longstanding advocate of patient safety, Dr. Rohrich believes recognitions such as these can be useful resources for patients who are researching surgeons. "The most important factor in all of plastic surgery, the one which determines your safety and outcome, is who you choose as your surgeon," explains Dr. Rohrich who stresses what he calls the three "3 Es": Expertise, Experience, and Exceptional results.
"Your surgeon should have the expertise, that is, be a recognized expert in the procedure. He or she should be experienced, and perform the procedure regularly as one of the top procedures of their practice. Finally, the results should be consistent and exceptional," explains Dr. Rohrich, who very frequently sees patients who have had poor outcomes from their initial surgery. More than half of his Dallas rhinoplasty patients, for example, come to see him for secondary rhinoplasty after having unsatisfying results from their first rhinoplasty, often considered to be one of the most difficult procedures in plastic surgery.
"Always choose your surgeon very carefully. It pays to spend the time doing research on your surgeon. Make sure he or she is board certified and has the skill, expertise, and experience to deliver a safe and rewarding outcome," says Dr. Rohrich.
