DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Dallas rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, was invited to deliver the keynote address at the Japanese Aesthetic Society meeting in Osaka Japan.
Dr. Rohrich spoke about his extensive experience performing rhinoplasty during his 30 year career and gave attendees guidance on how to develop consistency and excellence in rhinoplasty. He emphasized that the global principles of rhinoplasty remain the same but with enhanced techniques and technology the ability to learn and master rhinoplasty has been accelerated. He has developed numerous innovations and techniques that have changed how modern rhinoplasty is performed globally.
Dr. Rohrich was recently honored as the best rhinoplasty surgeon in the United States for the third consecutive year by Newsweek. He writes and lectures extensively on both rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty and believes that the new dorsal and tip shaping techniques which tension the nose add much more clarity on having better and more consistent rhinoplasty outcomes. He goes on to explain that this allows for improved and more uniform tip rotation and change in tip projection.
Dr. Rohrich, who advocates for the open approach to rhinoplasty which gives surgeons direct access to the delicate underlying nasal anatomy, stresses that each surgery must be customized to fit the patient’s unique circumstances, and minimizes the potential need for a revision rhinoplasty.
“Rhinoplasty remains one of the most challenging procedures in all of plastic surgery,” says Dr. Rohrich. “It is a surgery of millimeters, as the margin of error is very small. It truly epitomizes plastic surgery as a whole because it is a surgery of such great finesse and takes years to master.”
