Dallas rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, teaches on the subtleties of rhinoplasty at the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
DALLAS, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, recently delivered a course on finesse and consistency in rhinoplasty at the annual meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in San Diego, California. In his presentation, Dr. Rohrich covered the topic broadly including both primary and secondary rhinoplasty, also known as revision rhinoplasty, giving instruction and guidance on how to consistently address the subtlety and finesse required to perform rhinoplasty successfully.
"Rhinoplasty is a surgery of great finesse," explains Dr. Rohrich. "The difference between a poor outcome and an outstanding outcome can be down to a millimeter of difference, and the true, final results of surgery are usually not seen until months later."
In his course, Dr. Rohrich presents techniques and methodologies that he has developed over his extensive career that surgeons can utilize to help achieve consistent results and positive outcomes.
"Rhinoplasty is in a class of its own within plastic surgery," says Dr. Rohrich, who sees a relatively large number of rhinoplasty and especially revision rhinoplasty cases. "Not only are you responsible for the surgical planning and performance of the rhinoplasty or revision, but also have to be keenly aware and sensitive to how every patient's unique situation and circumstances may affect that person's self-esteem, identity, and long term quality of life."
Dr. Rohrich, has been ranked as the top plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty in the United States by Newsweek for two years in a row. He lectures frequently around the world at surgical conferences and educational meetings promoting innovations and effective plastic surgery practices. Dr. Rohrich is also the author of the authoritative textbook on the subject, "Dallas Rhinoplasty: Nasal Surgery by the Masters" which is now in its third edition and published in six languages.
"Rhinoplasty truly epitomizes plastic surgery as a whole because it is a surgery of such great finesse and takes years to master," says Dr. Rohrich. "Patients should always do their research and choose their surgeon carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a safe and satisfactory outcome."
