Dr. Constantinides is in Coquimbo, Chile this week to speak about rhinoplasty, as the guest of the Chilean Otolaryngology Society at their annual meeting.“My trip began with a visit to the sister cities Viña Del Mar and Valparaiso, on the Pacific coast about 80 km from the capital Santiago. When I was about 10 years old, and then again when I was 15, I spent a total of 9 months in Viña Del Mar. This was the beginning of my Spanish exposure, and I continued it through my undergraduate studies at Brown University.

Choosing a rhinoplasty surgeon can be difficult. Here are just a few of the most important qualities you should look for in a rhinoplasty surgeon.

Next week I travel to Cappadocia, Turkey to lecture about rhinoplasty at the Asian Facial Plastic Surgery Symposium. My lectures will be about tip suture techniques in rhinoplasty, and a new lecture called, "The Strut Graft Is Dead". A summary of the lectures follows:
“I want to have a nose job, but am afraid of the pain. How much does rhinoplasty really hurt?” Rhinoplasty is among one of the most popular plastic surgeries done today on the face. The two things that prevent people from becoming rhinoplasty patients is: (1) the cost of rhinoplasty, and; (2) the amount of pain during recovery. Fortunately, the fear of pain after rhinoplasty is mostly the fear of the unknown; most patients find that pain after rhinoplasty is not as bad as they feared, and for most is hardly an issue at all.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed in order to reduce eyelid sagging and prevent a person's vision from being obscured, enhancing eyesight as well as appearance.
A new consumer website, fairhealthconsumer.org, takes away having to guess at how much of your functional rhinoplasty surgery (or any other kind of surgery covered by insurance) will cost you. The website lists Usual & Customary (U&C) Rates by zip code and surgical CPT code. This makes planning for your surgery financially much easier. For years I have not been able to make accurate guesses at what my patients' out of pocket expenses would be after insurance reimbursement. This is because
Sofia is a 23 year old patient that has always wanted a nose job. She can “see” her ideal nose every time she looks in the mirror or takes a selfie.

During Sofia’s consultation, Dr. Constantinides performed photo imaging, guided by what Sofia had told me about how she wishes her nose would look. At the end of the photo imaging session, Sofia and Dr. Constantinides both remarked how the proposed changes would make Sofia look so much better overall. Two weeks later, Sofia returned for her preoperative visit and brought her mother along. Her mother had seen the pictures that Dr. Constantinides had given to Sofia at the end of her initial consult with the imaging “before and afters”. Sofia’s mother really never understood why Sofia wanted surgery. In her eyes, she was perfect the way she was. She thought Sofia was too
