NASAL RECONSTRUCTION

The nose is the central feature of the face. Yet when in harmony with remainder of the face, the nose is hardly noticed and attention is focused on the beauty of the eyes. But an unfavorably shaped nosedraws immediate attention to itself, and the face may appear displeasing. Just as important, the nose is essential for breathing and our sense of smell. The goals of nasal reconstruction are to reestablish balance of the nose with rest of the face and to restore nasal function. The nose may be reconstructed by simply bringing the wound edges together, but larger wounds may require recruiting tissue from other parts of the nose, cheek or forehead for adequate repair. Dr. Bhrany chooses a method that results in the best cosmetic and functional outcome in the safest possible way for our patients.
