Reconstructive Surgery

The need to undergo facial reconstructive surgery is often dictated beyond one’s control-- frequently due to trauma, cancer, or the way one was born.  Our team has extensive experience in treating patients who need reconstructive procedures for improved nasal breathing, facial skin cancer, head and neck cancer, trauma, and scarring.   The situation surrounding a reconstructive procedure can be challenging, and we accompany you through the process to ensure that your needs are met, and that you achieve the best outcome possible.  Undergoing a facial reconstructive procedure is often not a choice, but it can be a successful experience.

A nose that fits your face
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR RHINOPLASTY ?

People with aesthetic and/or functional problems with their noses are typically good candidates for rhinoplasty. Suitable rhinoplasty candidates have oversized, wide or crooked noses, upturned or drooping nasal tips or nasal deformity.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN RHINOPLASTY ?

Dr. Bhrany can take one of two approaches to rhinoplasty: open or closed. During an open rhinoplasty, he makes a small incision in the columella (the strip of skin separating the nostrils); during a closed rhinoplasty, he makes incisions within the nostrils.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?

In the first couple of days after surgery, it’s important to keep the head elevated at all times and avoid bending, heavy lifting or strenuous activities. Dr. Bhrany can prescribe pain medications to alleviate any discomfort.

Ideal Candidates for Rhinoplasty
  • Are in good health
  • Have realistic expectations about what the surgery can accomplish
  • Have a bump on the nasal bridge when viewed in profile
  • The nose appears too large for the face
  • The nose seems too wide when viewed from the front
  • The nasal tip droops or plunges downward
  • The tip is thickened or enlarged
