When injuries or maladies affect the nose, the facial appearance can be altered, and breathing or sinus problems may follow. Nasal reconstruction surgery is used to reshape both the cosmetic form of the nose as well as address functional aspects for breathing and sinus health. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is a top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in NYC who has the expertise and skills to perform nasal reconstruction surgery, restoring the shape and function after nose damage.
The nose is one of the most prominent features of the face. It is also one of the most common to be injured or affected by skin cancer. The position of the nose puts it at risk for trauma during impact accidents to the head. An auto accident or sports injury can fracture nasal bones and damage the nasal passages. The nose is also at high risk for skin cancer, which may need to be removed through Mohs surgery, causing a nasal deformity. When the nose is deformed through trauma or disease, reconstructive surgery can effectively restore the appearance and function.
Nose Reconstruction Techniques
The nose contains bone, cartilage and skin to create the shape and interior elements that are vital to respiratory and sinus function. When the nose is damaged, it requires an intimate knowledge of the nasal passageways and tissue replacement to restore function. Dr. Rosenberg’s vast experience in facial and nasal reconstruction has helped many of his patients recover from facial and nose trauma. Not only can he repair the nose to ensure proper breathing and sinus function, but his artistic skills as a plastic surgeon can also reshape the nose for cosmetic purposes.
Nasal reconstruction surgery is complex, often involving skin and cartilage grafts and other advanced surgical techniques. If your nose has been disfigured from an accident or disease, Dr. Rosenberg has the experience and skills you need to restore the shape and function.
