1 How many rhinoplasties do you do per week, per month, per year and how many total have you do in your career? the answer to these is very important because experience matters and it's your nose- it's your face it's better to be done correctly and properly and if something is inexpensive but doesn't work or creates problems it's infinitely expensive as there are NO shortcuts to quality.2.How much experience do you have with my type of nose specifically (enter your country of origin here) Dr. Kassir has operated on patients from 105 different countries and is an expert in Caucasian as well as ethnic rhinoplasty from all over the world.3️.Are you versed with the inside of the nose & the function of the nose as well as the outside? because the inside architecture of the nose not only helps with breathing issues and sinus issues but also dictates how the external appearance will be. We see a lot of noses that are crooked because the inside hasn't been properly addressed and all they've done is maybe take the bump off and left the middle part of the nose to collapse & the tip is worse than it was before.4️.What kind of art or aesthetic background do you have? surgeons can be experts technically & that's requisite for all good surgeries however aesthetics and art background is imperative for facial plastic surgery. Dr. Kassir's sculpting background helps immensely in creating beautiful transformations.5️.What specific qualifications and board certifications do you have that apply to my surgery & am I a good candidate for this operation? Dr. Kassir is triple board certified in otolaryngology, facial plastic surgery & sleep medicine. Sometimes after careful evaluation it's better to say no to a patient who is unrealistic than perform surgery & disappoint them.
