In brief: An experienced one

Facial plastic surgeons and plastic surgeons perform rhinoplasty.
However, not all are the same. Rhinoplasty is a nuanced procedure, so make sure you choose a surgeon who performs rhinoplasty frequently and understands the form and the function of the nose.

Facial plastic surgeons general plastic surgeons are both fellowship trained and board certified to perform rhinoplasty.
Otolaryngologist (ENT) are all board certified for rhinoplasty. Based on their training, some oral and maxillofacial surgeons may also be well-equipped in this art. Trust your face to a facial plastic surgeon- go to http://www.Aafprs.Org/ for more details.

In brief: ENT, Plastics

Look for a board certified otolaryngologist (ent), facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon.
Experience with this particular procedure is paramount since it is one of the most difficult procedures to perfect.

In brief: PS or FPS

Typically plastic surgeons or facial plastic surgeons are the 2 types that routinely do rhinoplasty operations but ENT surgeons and oral surgeons also sometimes perform rhinoplasties.
Dont go by the specialty alone. Not all plastic or facial plastic surgeons do rhinoplasties frequently. Some may do more breast augmentations or facelifts respectively. Some may do lots of noses but not do it well.

Surgery - Plastics

In brief: Nose Reshaping

Most rhinoplasty in the United States is performed by plastic surgeons or facial plastic surgeons.
The former are surgeons trained in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the entire body, head to toe, while the latter are head & neck surgeons (ents or otorhinolaryngologists) who have received additional training in cosmetic surgery of the face.
