A hairdresser can probably tell you how many haircuts she has given during her career. A college professor can tell you how many students he has taught over the years. Similarly, any Plastic Surgeon should be able to tell you—accurately—how many Rhinoplasty Surgeries he or she has performed. This is important to know since you want to ensure that the doctor has performed enough Rhinoplasties that he or she will be able to handle any issues that may occur during your surgery. But don’t rely on numbers alone. Someone who has learned to tie their shoes incorrectly may tie them that way a thousand times. But someone who learned to tie shoes correctly may have only tied them a hundred times.
A Plastic Surgeon will also know how many of his or her surgeries resulted in complications and how they were handled. He or she should also tell you how satisfied his patients have been since most people aren’t shy about sharing their pleasure or displeasure with the end results. But keep in mind: Your surgeon can’t share patient files with you because specific patient information is confidential and protected under The Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act, also known as HIPAA.
Trust is an important issue for patients who consult with a surgeon about a cosmetic procedure. Patients who choose to have elective Cosmetic Surgery seldom make that decision lightly, so they must develop a relationship with the surgeon in order to achieve the results they want.

Dr. Slupchynskyj has also earned the trust and respect of hundreds of patients.
If you are considering having a Revision Rhinoplasty to fix the results of a previous operation, the Plastic Surgeon must not only know how to perform a successful Rhinoplasty, but also he must know how to handle the lingering results of previous surgeries.
