Posted September 07, 2007 in Revision Rhinoplasty
Revision rhinoplasty is my specialty. I am often called on to reshape noses that are “pinched” or deformed from previous surgery or traumatic injury. Many times I will also revise noses that are too narrow or collapsed from trauma or just plain old do not function well.
My background is in Ear, Nose and Throat surgery, so I feel I am adept in creating a more functional and sculpted nose for my patients. To quote a traditional architectural theme, in terms of the nose, “form follows function.” It is my passion to restore this function.
Most of the functional and breathing problems I encounter deal with blockages of the nose from conditions like a deviated septum and sinusitis. I can address both of these issues at the same time.
I perform a thorough exam of the inside of the nose during your consultation, using a specialized headlight for viewing the nose. Sometimes I may need to use nasal endoscopic equipment to get a better view.
Other nasal procedures that I perform are septoplasty, reconstruction of the skin and structures of the nose after removal of skin cancers and correction of septal perforations.
