The Skills of an Artist and a Highly-Regarded Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Nassif is also a recognized revision rhinoplasty specialist, helping patients who have had nose surgery once, twice or even five times in the past achieve the cosmetic results they desire with improved function of the nose. Most recently, his work as a revision rhinoplasty surgeon has been featured on Botched!, which follows world-renowned surgeons Dr. Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow as they fix the results of some of the most difficult-to-repair, poorly done nose surgeries.

Dr. Nassif prides himself on providing patients with the most natural looking rhinoplasty surgical results possible. Combining his skills as both an artist and a surgeon, Dr. Nassif shapes noses so that they will appear fully natural, with balance and harmony. His experience as an ethnic rhinoplasty specialist also allows him to create natural-looking noses for people of all races. The results of his work are invariably aesthetically pleasing and completely functional.
