Finding the right doctor for a rhinoplasty is no easy task. There are many considerations when making a decision about who should operate on your nose.
One of the most important things is to feel confident and comfortable with the surgeon who you choose. The physician should have extensive experience performing rhinoplasty procedures and should be a true specialist in the field.
After starting to research different surgeons, you might come to realize that a doctor that you are interested in practices in a different state or even a different country.

Don’t Let Location Determine What Surgeon You Choose
There are so many things to consider when pursuing a rhinoplasty. It can seem overwhelming to spend time researching doctors, and as a result, many people limit themselves to looking into physicians who have offices close by.
Instead of letting location be a determining factor, you should look for the doctor who you feel will be able to provide you with the best possible surgical outcome. Success rates of rhinoplasty procedures are not only based on the patient’s anatomy but also the surgeon’s artistic and technical skills, which makes seeing a specialist extremely important, regardless of where you live in the country. Dr. Azizzadeh understands that it’s not easy for most out of town patients to make a trip to Beverly Hills for their initial consultation, so he has come up with a way to make it more convenient. You can have a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Azizzadeh from the comfort of your own home via Skype!
If you decide to proceed with surgery, his staff can even arrange your follow up appointments (one month and later) via Skype after your rhinoplasty procedure. The main goal of Skype consultations is to provide patients with the highest level of care while making it as convenient as possible.
How do Skype Consultations Work?
Skype consultations are a large part of Dr. Azizzadeh’s practice, so although it might sound like a new concept, it’s something that he does almost daily. After scheduling your Skype consultation, our office will contact you about a week in advance of your appointment with instructions on how to complete new patient paperwork and send over some specific photographs.
Dr. Azizzadeh asks that his Skype patients send this information 48 hours prior to their consultation so that he can spend time reviewing everything on paper before meeting face-to-face via Skype. The paperwork consists of two forms; a medical history summary and a questionnaire specific to rhinoplasty patients. We also make sure to get your Skype ID ahead of time so that we can add you as a contact and ensure that everything is in order for your consultation.
On the day and time of your consultation Dr. Azizzadeh places the Skype call to you. Patients have plenty of time to get to know Dr. Azizzadeh and ask any questions that they may have. Dr. Azizzadeh will examine you and make his recommendation for creating a customized treatment plan. After your Skype appointment Dr. Azizzadeh’s surgical consultant will follow up with you to go over the financial quote and will be your liaison for any of the logistical details of booking surgery if you decide to proceed.
