The range of conditions that Otolaryngologists diagnose and treat are widely varied and can involve the entire face, nose, lips, ears, and neck. Facial plastic surgery is a component of otolaryngology that can be divided into two categories: reconstructive and cosmetic.
Reconstructive surgery is usually necessary after facial trauma such as nasal trauma, facial fractures and soft tissue injuries. Facial reanimation surgery can be needed following injuries to the facial nerve, which controls facial movement. Facial reconstruction may also be needed following or in conjunction with facial tumor surgery. Reconstructions require combined attention to both the functional and cosmetic appearance of the head and neck region. We do the full gamut of reconstructive surgery in our group.
Cosmetic surgery of the head and neck also requires close attention to the functional outcome. As Otolaryngologists, we strive to combine the best appearance with the best functional result. In our clinic, we perform:
- Rhinoplasty: Surgery to change the shape of the nose while maintaining or improving function. We do this both for post-traumatic noses as well as for patients who simply want to change their appearance.
- Otoplasty: Surgery for protruding ears. This surgery is usually done around age 5-6 years old for children who may be being teased at school – but may be done at any age.
- We provide Botox treatments at a competitive price for patients who are seeking to prevent wrinkle development.
