Dr. Rod J. Rohrich speaks at the 73rd Congress of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons

In a series of presentations before the 73rd Congress of the Korean Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in Seoul, Korea Distinguished Professor of Plastic Surgery and renowned rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich discussed advances and developments in rhinoplasty surgery that make it are more consistent, safer procedure.

In the Keynote meeting presentation, entitled "Rhinoplasty: Getting it Right the First Time - A 25 Year Perspective", Dr. Rohrich shared his expertise as a recognized rhinoplasty expert, emphasized the difficulty of rhinoplasty as a cosmetic surgery, and explored the challenges that plastic surgeons have faced and the evolution of rhinoplasty over the past several decades that have led up to the modern techniques and approach.

Dr. Rohrich, who also serves as the Editor-in-Chief of "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery", the official medical journal for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and is also the chair of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium, says that rhinoplasty requires both art and science, relying on the personal aesthetic choices of the surgeon, and the surgical ability to achieve those results in a consistent manner.

Dr. Rohrich emphasized that rhinoplasty is an especially difficult and complex surgery with many nuances and variables. "Rhinoplasty is a surgery of millimeters," says Dr. Rohrich, "The margin for error is very small. In all of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty stands as one of the most difficult procedures to achieve consistently good results. It truly epitomizes plastic surgery as a whole as surgery of great finesse which takes many years to master."

Dr. Rohrich, receives numerous requests annually from around the world for corrective or revision rhinoplasty to improve upon poor results from a primary rhinoplasty. Hoping to improve the average rate of revision, Dr. Rohrich, seeks ways to improve the percentage across his discipline. "Since a secondary nose job is so difficult, it is vastly important to do it correctly the first time, avoiding the need for secondary surgery. Careful analysis of the each patient's nose and their specific situation is the key to a successful surgery," says Dr. Rohrich. "One must never leaver the Operating room until the nose is a perfect as it can ever be."

Dr. Rohrich concludes that the key to mastering the complexities of rhinoplasty is to master a wide variety of surgical techniques, ensuring the surgeon has multitude of options to maximize control during surgery. "The goal is always to make sure the patient has a natural appearing, functional nose that matches the other facial features. Rhinoplasty is not a once-fits-all procedure, it relies on the plastic surgeon's aesthetic sense in combination with his ability to achieve good results," says Dr. Rohrich.
