Nasal Reconstruction Surgery
The nose is one of the most vulnerable features on the face, due to its central position and projection. Many people experience a broken nose at one point or another in their lives due to falls, accidents and other types of trauma. While some nose traumas are not serious and can heal quickly without damage to the nasal passages, others can deform both the appearance and impact the function of the nose.
Dr. Rousso is one of the top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in New York City, with world-wide experience in reconstructive facial surgery. Two of his primary specialties as a plastic surgeon are rhinoplasty and facial reconstruction, which are both needed for nasal reconstruction. His expertise and skill can achieve functional airway reconstruction of the nasal passages, as well as address aesthetic concerns for the patient. The result is a beautiful, balanced and functional nose that is resurrected after undergoing severe trauma.
Unlike cosmetic rhinoplasty, there are usually more biological and medical issues involved in a nasal reconstruction. It is not just changing the shape of the nose, but often rebuilding tissues that have been lost or damaged. This can include skin, bone and cartilage grafts, depending on the extent of the injury. While the functional aspect is important. Dr. Rousso also understands how much the appearance of the nose can affect the balance and beauty of the face. It is his goal to achieve both biological function and aesthetic form with every reconstructive rhinoplasty procedure he performs, giving his patients the best of both worlds with their newly reshaped nose.
