Advances in treatment of nasal problems

Lots of nasal problems can be successfully treated with medication, although sometimes nose plastic surgery is necessary.

Nasal surgery to address airway and sinus problems has been revolutionised by :

  • An improved understanding of the natural drainage passageways from the sinuses. Previously surgery took no account of this. We aim to restore natural sinus anatomy and functionality.
  • Better imaging techniques including CT and MRI scans allow for a precise diagnosis of the problem.
  • Improved instrumentation allows for focused surgery with less post-operative bleeding and usually no need for nasal packing. e.g balloon sinuplasty

Nose plastic surgery to address the appearance of the nose has benefited from:

  • Digital imaging and image manipulation software to enhance pre-operative analysis of the underlying structural problem. This allows us to show you the likely outcome of any surgery.
  • A better understanding of the variations in nasal anatomy and the structural supports of the nose
