rhinoplasty woodlands by Dr. Ben Cilento

Benjamin W Cilento (http://www.drbencilento.com) graduated at the top of his class and was inducted into the prestigious national honor society, Phi Beta Kappa. Unlike his classmates, he delayed attending medical school immediately after college. Instead, he joined the US Marine Corps where he served as a Signals Intelligence and Reconnaissance Officer during the first Gulf War. After five years as a Marine he decided to go back and finish his medical education and transferred to the US Naval Medical program.


Rhinoplasty, or nasal reshaping (http://www.drbencilento.com/rhinoplasty.htm), is one of the more popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S. Its main goal is to correct deformities while maintaining or improving breathing. It is essentially a form of surgical sculpting in order to achieve a more pleasing and balanced harmony between the nose and the rest of the face. Quite often an excellent result will bring more attention to the eyes as this symmetry and balance is achieved.


Rhinoplasty is considered by most surgeons to be the most complex surgery in the head and neck. Therefore, it is vital that you find a surgeon that is capable and experienced in the art of rhinoplasty. With all of the information available on the internet it is much easier to find a competent surgeon these days if you know what to look for. There are three attributes a surgeon must have in order to join the ranks of elite rhinoplasty surgeons: training, certification and experience


Although there are several different roads that lead a physician into plastic surgery, only a solid underpinning in head and neck surgery provides the necessary skill set to make a truly excellent facial plastic surgeon. You should check to see that your surgeon initially trained in a field that focuses on the area of interest and nowhere is this more important than in the nose. Furthermore and perhaps most important of all is completion of a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. This is the time when a good surgeon becomes great under the watchful eyes of experienced mentors.
