When deciding to undergo nose surgery, choosing a top rhinoplasty surgeon with the necessary training, experience, and skill is essential for obtaining the best rhinoplasty results. Dr. Cochran has been selected as one of the “Best Doctors in Dallas” for both 2009 and 2008 by D Magazine.
C. Spencer Cochran, MD is the lead rhinoplasty surgeon here at the Gunter Center for Aesthetics and Cosmetic Surgery. Hand-selected by our Medical Director and renowned rhinoplasty surgeon, Jack P. Gunter, MD, Dr. Cochran is extensively trained and highly skilled in all aspects of nasal surgery. Rhinoplasty is not only Dr. Cochran’s area of expertise – it is his passion. Dr. Cochran is Board Certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is a member of The Rhinoplasty Society, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and many other prestigious medical organizations. Dr. Cochran strives to provide the best rhinoplasty results by combining time-tested rhinoplasty techniques with the most advanced innovations available in nasal surgery. His extraordinary level of experience and credentials have paved the way for him to become an immensely talented and skilled rhinoplasty specialist.
“Rhinoplasty intrigues me because of its inherent degree of difficulty. To be extraordinary, you must develop a keen aesthetic eye, a deep understanding of anatomy, and incredible technical proficiency. You must also commit to it as a specialty because rhinoplasty is challenging to do well if you are not doing it all the time.”
Rhinoplasty differs from other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in that it involves correcting both form and function. “Striking the perfect balance between meeting a patient’s aesthetic goals and correcting a functional problem is very important – a great looking nose must also work well. I never settle for anything less than my personal best. This is the only thing I do, and it will be done right.”
Dr. C. Spencer Cochran graduated at the top of his class from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where he received his medical degree. His interest in rhinoplasty led him to pursue a career as a nasal surgery specialist, training at the world-renowned University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. During his residency, he served as Chief Resident of the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. Dr. Cochran continues to teach rhinoplasty techniques to other surgeons as a Clinical Assistant Professor at UT Southwestern.
Dr. Cochran studied the art and science of rhinoplasty directly under Dr. Gunter, observing and assisting him in surgery. Dr. Gunter was impressed with Dr. Cochran’s talent and enthusiasm for rhinoplasty and later asked Dr. Cochran to join his practice. “We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Cochran at the Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery. He is a rising star in the field of nasal surgery. In addition to rhinoplasty, Dr. Cochran adds another dimension to our team by bringing significant experience in endoscopic sinus surgery and a special interest in correcting nasal airway obstruction.”
Dr. Gunter has entrusted Dr. Cochran to be the lead rhinoplasty surgeon here at the Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery. “My patients truly benefit from all I have learned from Dr. Gunter. His meticulous attention to detail is remarkable. Having worked beside him over the past 5 years has made me a better doctor.”
Dr. Cochran believes in giving every patient the luxury of time. During each in-person consultation, Dr. Cochran carefully explains what patients can expect before, during, and after surgery. Because each individual possesses unique facial characteristics, Dr. Cochran designs a specific surgery for each patient. “The nose should never detract from the face or become a focal point. It is a unique operation every time.”
