Newsweek has recognized Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Rod J. Rohrich as the top ranked plastic surgeon in the United States in 4 out of the 5 categories, including rhinoplasty, facelifts, liposuction, and eyelifts.
DALLAS, Sept. 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been selected as the top plastic surgeon in the United States for 2023 in Newsweek's newly published, peer reviewed list of top performing plastic surgeons, topping the list in 4 of the 5 categories including number 1 in rhinoplasty, facelifts, liposuction, and eye lift surgeries.
Newsweek, partnering together with data analytics provider, Statista Inc., has published a ranked list of the best plastic surgeons in the United States for each of the five most common cosmetic procedures: breast augmentation, liposuction, facelifts, eye lifts, and rhinoplasty.
The ranked lists were curated as the result of an independent, nationwide survey conducted over March and April of 2023, which queried more than 2,000 industry experts ranging from physicians, plastic surgeons, plastic surgery clinic managers, and health care professionals working in plastic surgery. Based on the results of this survey, a score was calculated for each of the candidate surgeons based on the number of recommendations, a quality assessment, and relevant certifications and background of the candidates.
The results were then compiled and the top 30 plastic surgeons from each category were ranked and listed by their scores, with the remaining candidates being listed alphabetically. Over 8,400 were collected, reviewed, and analyzed to help produce the score for each procedure.
When the final figures were calculated, Dr. Rohrich was ranked at number 1 for rhinoplasty surgery, number 1 for facelift surgery, number 1 for eye lift surgery, which is frequently a component of a facelift, and number 1 for liposuction. Additionally, Dr. Rohrich also ranked number 3 for breast augmentation, the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States.
A longstanding advocate for promoting both patient safety and excellent outcomes, Dr. Rohrich believes these types of independent, peer nominated awards can serve as valuable resources for helping patients seeking highly qualified surgeons and stressing the importance of maintaining high standards of patient care.
"The most important factor in all of plastic surgery, the one which determines your safety and outcome, is who you select as your surgeon," says Dr. Rohrich, who attributes his high rankings on the list to his lifelong dedication to innovations in plastic surgery and extensive commitments as a teacher and educator. Dr. Rohrich is often invited to plastic surgery programs and training courses nationally and internationally to teach and demonstrate how to achieve safe and consistent outcomes in plastic surgery.
"I'm honored and humbled to have been recognized by my peers in this extensive and thorough analysis performed by Newsweek," says Dr. Rohrich, who also ranked as number 1 for rhinoplasty and facelifts in Newsweek's 2021 and 2022 features. "In plastic surgery it's not enough to be consistent, you must be consistently exceptional."
