    Rhinoplasty - ENT vs. Plastic Surgeon?

    I want to have rhinoplasty but also have enlarged turbinates and need some reduction of those at the same time. I have consulted with both ENTs who have subspecialty in facial plastic surgery, as well as with plastic surgeons who do not have training as ENT/nose function. I'm not sure which is better (technical dr. vs. aesthetic dr.), but leaning towards the ENT.
    Does anyone know how many years an ENT (Otolaryngologist) with a subspecialty in facial plastic surgery must train in facial plastic surgery by law to make him qualified as facial plastic surgeon?

    Facial Plastic Surgeons are usually Board Certified in Otolaryngology and or the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery. They are usually members of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive surgery [URL=]AAFPRS[/URL] More information can be obtained from their website. Rhinoplasty is performed by both specialties. Do not get sucked into the negative PR put out by some specialty societies about who is most qualified. The most qualified have high credentials, lots and lots of experience (I've done over 1500 rhinoplasties and over 3000 of other nasal surgery and the most satisfied patients. [URL=][/URL]
