How is nasal reconstruction performed?
Nasal reconstruction can be performed using various techniques, depending on the specific needs of the patient. Commonly, it involves using local tissue flaps, grafts, or a combination of both. Local flaps may involve using nearby tissue, such as forehead skin or tissue from the cheeks or ear, to rebuild the nasal structures. Grafts can include cartilage or bone taken from other parts of the body, such as the septum, ear, or rib, to provide support and shape to the reconstructed nose. The exact technique used will depend on the individual case and the surgeon's expertise.
Can nasal reconstruction improve both the appearance and function of the nose?
Yes, nasal reconstruction aims to address both the aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose. Along with restoring the natural appearance, nasal reconstruction can also correct functional issues such as breathing difficulties or nasal obstruction. The surgeon will work to rebuild the nasal structures in a way that achieves a balanced and functional nose, ensuring optimal form and function.
