Anyone with a nose problem can be seen by a nose specialist doctor. This may include:
- People who have problems breathing through their nose.
- People who are concerned about the appearance of their nose.
- People with sinus problems.
- People with allergic problems.
- People who are worried about cancer.
Lots of nasal problems can be successfully treated with medication, although sometimes surgery by a sinus specialist is necessary.
Nose plastic surgery to address airway and sinus problems has been revolutionised by:
An improved understanding of the natural drainage passageways from the sinuses. Previously nose plastic 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.
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 nose plastic surgery.
A better understanding of the variations in nasal anatomy and the structural supports of the nose.
