Trauma, disease and nose surgery can result in damage to the nose structure that impacts form and function. Whether it is a broken nose from an auto accident or a deformed nose after Mohs surgery for skin cancer, damage to the nose can have a significant impact on your life. At HMS Plastic Surgery, we have a highly experienced plastic and reconstructive surgeon that can perform complex nose reconstruction plastic surgery at our center in Miami, FL.
The nose structure is comprised of cartilage, bone, mucous membrane and other tissues. When any of these tissues are damaged, it may require surgery to repair and restore the nose structure. Nose reconstruction plastic surgery is one of the more complex facial surgeries, as it requires restoration of the nose function for filtering and intaking air, as well as the appearance of the nose.
Trauma nose injuries often include a broken nasal bone and damaged cartilage that need repair. The septum may be perforated or deviated, requiring septoplasty. While mild nasal fractures do not usually require plastic surgery, more extensive damage to the bone and structure may benefit from reconstruction surgery.
Nose Reconstruction After Cancer
Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer, and it often occurs on the face. The nose is one of the features that is susceptible to sunburns and skin damage from UV rays, which can lead to cancerous lesions. If Mohs or other cancer surgery is performed on the nose, it may remove skin, cartilage and even bone to remove the cancer cells. Nose reconstruction is often needed to restore the form and function after nose cancer surgery.
Dr. Harry Salinas is highly experienced and a board certified plastic surgeon with exceptional skills in reconstructive surgery. His background in studying oncological surgery and performing cancer reconstruction surgery give him the skills needed to perform nose reconstruction surgery with excellent outcomes for his patients.
