Innovations in surgical techniques have made rhinoplasty a safer and more effective cosmetic surgery procedure over the years. However, the skill and expertise of the operating surgeon still continues to be the single most critical factor that will impact the final outcome of the procedure.
Patients should carefully consider the surgeon’s credentials and then make their final decision about a procedure such as nose surgery. Dr. Hisham Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon providing rhinoplasty and several other aesthetic and reconstructive procedures to patients in Newport Beach, Orange County, CA, and other cities in the Southern California region.
One of the primary considerations for a patient while choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon should be whether the surgeon holds a board certification in plastic surgery. This certification will serve as an automatic assurance that the surgeon would have received a certain minimum number of years of training in surgery, including specific training in the field of cosmetic surgery.
Board certified surgeons typically invest in maintaining the highest quality standards, follow the best surgical practices, adopt cutting edge techniques, pursue continuing education, and adhere to the current safety protocols.
Dr. Seify is a board certified plastic surgeon from the prestigious American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the foremost board in the country, and upholds the most stringent standards for awarding certification. Surgeons are required to update their knowledge and expertise periodically to continually maintain their certification.
Additional Professional Credentials
Dr. Seify is a member of the premier professional organization in the field of plastic surgery – the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The membership of ASPS along with other professional memberships allow Dr. Seify to network with other leading surgeons in the field, and stay abreast of the latest news, events and technological developments in the field of plastic surgery.
Dr. Seify applies his knowledge to the benefit of his patients and helps them achieve optimal outcomes by using cutting edge techniques and procedures. Dr. Seify also holds eminent academic positions at leading US universities, which further add to his knowledge and expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Seify enjoys hospital privileges at several leading local hospitals in the region, including UCLA, Hoag, Saddleback and Fountain Valley hospitals. Every hospital conducts a rigorous background check before accepting a surgeon on their staff. Therefore, top hospital affiliations too serve as a reassurance for a new patient, who will have easy access to hospital care if the need arises.
