shutterstock_64257811Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is an intricate procedure that can have a dramatic impact on the overall appearance of the face. The rhinoplasty surgeon should have an intimate understanding of the nose and other facial features and the relationship between them in order to produce natural looking, balanced results. Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen, popularly known as Dr. V, is a board certified ENT and facial plastic surgeon providing rhinoplasty and various other procedures.

Dr. V combines the principles of art and science to create safe, sustainable and natural looking results with rhinoplasty. She provides rhinoplasty to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding locations.


Specializing in Facial Plastic Surgery

Any cosmetic or plastic surgeon is authorized to perform rhinoplasty, but not all plastic surgeons are alike when it comes to facial procedures. Facial plastic surgery is a complex specialty, and a facial procedure such as rhinoplasty should ideally be performed by a plastic surgeon specializing in the field of otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery.

A specialist in this field would have received dedicated training in various facial procedures, and would have a close understanding of how to maintain proportion between the nose and the chin and other facial features with rhinoplasty. A facial plastic surgeon would also be in the best position to ensure that the patient’s essential facial identity and integrity is not compromised, while meeting their aesthetic goals as closely as possible.


Board Certifications

A facial plastic surgeon with advanced training and proven expertise would go through a rigorous selection process to receive a board certification from an authoritative and prestigious board of surgery. A board certification from a widely respected board would automatically serve as an assurance for the patient that they have chosen a surgeon who is distinguished in the field of facial plastic surgery, including rhinoplasty.

Board certified facial plastic surgeons would also be required to clear periodic exams, and would therefore stay updated with the latest surgical techniques, technology and safety protocols. Dr. V belongs to a select group of facial plastic surgeons who have earned board certifications both from the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABOto), two of the most coveted facial plastic surgery boards in the industry.


Hospital Privileges

The rhinoplasty surgeon should ideally have hospital privileges at one or more leading hospitals in the local area. In the rare event of an emergency, the patient will have the assurance of getting access to hospital care. Hospitals grant staff privileges only after rigorous background checks of the surgeon, which will additionally serve as an assurance to the patient that they are in safe hands.

Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for rhinoplasty.


Personal Rapport

A plastic surgery procedure such as rhinoplasty is a personal journey for a patient. They should choose a surgeon with whom they feel comfortable and are able to freely share their aesthetic and health needs and concerns. The surgeon should be willing to engage and give personalized care and attention to the patient at every step of the procedure.
