"Patients' Choice Award" by Vitals.com
Dr. Sam Naficy has been awarded the "Patients' Choice Award" by Vitals.com - a website dedicated to rating the quality of physicians across the country. Out of 720,000 physicians, only 5% received this honor.
CASE OF THE MONTH
Seattle rhinoplasty surgeon Sam Naficy, MD performed this rhinoplasty procedure to help refine the tip and reduce the hump on the bridge of the nose. The patient also had a deviated septum which was corrected at the same time as the rhinoplasty.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN SEEING WHAT YOUR NOSE COULD LOOK LIKE AFTER A RHINOPLASTY?
Seattle rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Sam Naficy can perform computer simulations to help you visualize the potential outcome of rhinoplasty. Check out this link for more details about rhinoplasty simulations. Also, if you are wondering whether you would be a good candidate for rhinoplasty, you may submit your photographs to us for a virtual consultation.
DR. SAM NAFICY VOTED TOP SEATTLE PLASTIC SURGEON FOR THE FACE
Voted by his medical peers for his expertise in rhinoplasty and facial cosmetic surgery
Patients seeking rhinoplasty may benefit greatly from a computer simulation of
the potential result. Many undesirable features of the nose affect the profile
much more than they affect the front view. Most of us rarely get a good look at
our profile, and if so, it is usually through a photograph. Computer simulation
allows the surgeon to reshape the nose digitally and to give the patient an idea of
possible outcome from the rhinoplasty procedure. Let's look at an example.
This young woman had a rather long nose and wanted to make it shorter and
less protruding. A digital photograph is taken and, using special morphing
software, the nose is modified to a more pleasing profile. It is important to realize
that these are computer-generated simulations of what might be accomplished
with surgery. The sole purpose of these simulations is to give the patient a
general idea of a possible outcome after surgery, however simulations neither
serve as an express nor implied guarantee of duplication or replication of these
This patient elected to proceed with rhinoplasty surgery and below you can see
the actual outcome of the surgery performed. The simulation above served in
giving the patient a better visual idea of what Dr. Naficy was planning to perform.

Rhinoplasty simulations serve as an important tool in helping patients make a
more informed decision. They are particularly important with our out of town
patients as Dr. Naficy performs a number of procedures on patient flying into
Seattle from all over the country. These patients sometimes e-mail their digital
photographs to Dr. Naficy allowing a "virtual consultation" which includes
computer simulations of possible rhinoplasty results.
