“These types of awards are valuable tools that can help guide patients towards well qualified plastic surgeons as surgeon selection is the single most important factor for a successful outcome in plastic surgery.” -Dr. Rod J. Rohrich

Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich has been ranked as the top rhinoplasty surgeon in the United States in Newsweek’s new peer reviewed list of top performing plastic surgeons.
Partnering with Statista Inc., Newsweek has published a ranked list of the best plastic surgeons in the United States in each of four different surgical categories of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures of breast augmentation, liposuction, facelift, and rhinoplasty.
The lists were the result of an independent national survey of more than 5,000 recommendations from doctors, surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers, and health care professionals in plastic surgery. The associated quality score is based on each candidate’s surgical preparation, surgical process, post-operative follow-up care, and overall surgical outcomes.
The survey identified 387 total surgeons which were then ranked into lists of the top 150 in each of the four specialties, with the specific rankings based on their final quality score.
Dr. Rohrich was ranked in the first position at No. 1 for best rhinoplasty surgeons in the United States, with the top score of 99.4% based on the scoring system. Dr. Rohrich also appeared in the other lists No. 1 in Facelifts, No. 2 in liposuction, and No. 11 in breast augmentation.
“I’m extremely honored to have been recognized by Newsweek in this peer reviewed process,” says Dr. Rohrich. “These types of awards are valuable tools that can help guide patients towards well qualified plastic surgeons as surgeon selection is the single most important factor for a successful outcome in plastic surgery.”
A well-known advocate for patient safety, Dr. Rohrich lectures frequently around the world at surgical conferences and educational meetings promoting innovations in safe and effective plastic surgery practices. Much of his writings and presentations focus on rhinoplasty, and revision rhinoplasty, that is, correcting a previously performed rhinoplasty that has a poor outcome. Dr. Rohrich is also the author of the authoritative textbooks on the subject, “Dallas Rhinoplasty: Nasal Surgery by the Masters,” which is now 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.”
