One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose, remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. Rhinoplasty surgery in Fort Pierce is usually an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia and lasts one to two hours. The maneuvers are tailored to the individual’s nose and the client’s wishes.
Due to the delicacy of the organ and of the variety of reasons why it’s being performed, rhinoplasty surgery in Fort Pierce should only be executed by experts in otorhinolaryngology and plastic surgery. Dr. Christopher Slack specialized in both areas and is triple boarded with board certification in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery and Otolaryngology – Sleep Medicine.
Facial plastic surgery like rhinoplasty makes it possible to correct many flaws and signs of premature aging. Dr. Slack stresses natural and subtle cosmetic procedures, which enhance rather than change one’s appearance. Additionally, rhinoplasty is a solution and a relief for patients who suffer from nasal problems: it can improve airflow by repositioning a deviated septum, reducing the size of enlarged turbinates or possibly correcting nasal valve collapse from aging or previous dermatologic surgery. Sometimes internal issues of chronic sinusitis or nasal polyposis require surgery as well.
So if you’re considering rhinoplasty surgery in Fort Pierce for cosmetic or medical reasons, contact Dr. Slack at 772-464-9595 for a consultation.
