Keloid Scar Removal
A keloid scar is an abnormal growth of scar tissue that can result in disfigurement. We remove keloid scars in the office or in the operating room.
Rhinoplasty is defined as surgery on the nasal bones or cartilages to relieve obstructive nasal breathing or for cosmetic reasons.
Botox injection is performed for cosmetic reduction of facial wrinkles. It is also highly effective for treatment of migraine headaches and temporomandibular joint pain.
Filler injections, such as Restylane, can treat facial aging changes without the need for surgery.
This 20 year-old man presented for rhinoplasty. He had life-long obstructed nasal breathing prior to his surgery. His nasal septum was reconstructed and straightened and his nasal sidewalls were strengthened with cartilage grafts. The end result was very natural in terms of both form and function.
This patient had persistent nasal deviation and airway blockage after a previous nasal surgery. Correction required extensive structural grafting using cartilage grafts from the rib. The section of rib that is adjacent to the sternum is a reliable source of cartilage graft material for more extensive reconstructive rhinoplasty surgeries.
This young man had a previous nasal fracture with significant cartilage injury causing deviation and a depression on the right nasal sidewall. He was repaired with an open approach using structural cartilage grafting from the nasal septal cartilage to repair the right sidewall.
This patient had a skin condition of the nose called rhinophyma. This condition causes overgrowth of the oil glands in the skin of the tip of the nose, which appears enlarged, irregular, and bulbous. He was treated with a series of surgicalexcisions, radiofrequency ablation, and laser resurfacing.
This patient had a skin cancer removed from the delicate skin of the lower eyelid. It is important to note that his reconstruction of the skin defect did not result in an unfavorable change in eyelid shape or position.
This woman had a large skin cancer that involved most of the nasal tip. She was repaired using a common technique called a paramedian forehead flap. In this surgery, skin is transplanted from the forehead all the way down to the tip of the nose. The forehead skin is used because it has a good color match with nasal skin and because it has a rich blood supply, making it a reliable technique.
