Nasal surgery, or rhinoplasty, is indicated to correct problems resulting either from injuries to the nose or undesirable shapes that are genetic. It can be used to address a nose that is too large, too small, crooked or too broad. Rhinoplasty can also be used to enhance the appearance of a nose that has a bulbous tip, or an undesirable hump. All of these dilemmas can be addressed either with a reduction, reshaping or an implant.
A specific type of nasal surgery, septoplasty, is designed to correct airway obstructions, such as a deviated septum. These types of nasal surgeries take one to two hours and are usually performed under a local or general anesthetic. In some cases, septoplasty may be covered by medical insurance.
Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
Atlanta Plastic Surgery Specialists is a trusted leader when it comes to endoscopic sinus surgery. Endoscopic sinus surgery is a minimally invasive technique used to restore sinus ventilation and normal functions of the nose. Sinus surgery can be performed under a general or local anesthesia, and patients usually experience minimal discomfort.
Patients with recurrent acute or chronic sinusitis can expect significant improvement in symptoms after this procedure. While at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Jones learned about this procedure from Heinz Stammberger, MD, and Dr. Kennedy. Both of these doctors have been credited with bringing this surgical procedure to the United States. Dr. Jones’ experience with endoscopic sinus surgery has been continuous since its introduction to the United States in 1984. Since that time, he has mastered the procedure.
