Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist Provides Revision Rhinoplasty Services in New York Metro Area
Date:8/5/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

Dr. William M. Portnoy, MD, FACS a renowned Otolaryngology specialist in Manhattan reports a rise in revision rhinoplasty consultations at his practice. This procedure, which integrates cosmetic, reconstructive and functional rhinoplasty techniques, is often performed on patients who have undergone previous nasal surgeries that have resulted in a poor outcome. Patients often seek additional nasal surgery referred to as “revision” rhinoplasty for many reasons ranging from dissatisfaction with appearance to suffering with physical dysfunction and pain, emotional distress and even loss of self-esteem. At the Doctor’s Manhattan practice located in the heart of Chelsea in New York City, Dr. Portnoy and staff guide patients through the process to reclaim both a pleasing appearance and improved function of the nasal airway.

There are many reasons patients consult Dr. Portnoy for revision rhinoplasty. The cute, pert feature one may have sought from a “nose job” when one was younger may have resulted in un-intended and long term side effects. Often over resection of the supportive cartilage leads to scarring and soft-tissue collapse which can result in severely compromised nasal function and a cosmetically displeasing appearance. Many patients come to accept these functional and aesthetic changes, living their lives as virtual “nasal cripples”. “It is not uncommon for patients to present, having suffered for years, with complaints of a disfigured nose, discomfort and all the limitations inherent to nasal obstruction,” Dr. William M. Portnoy, MD, FACS says.

These can include shortness of breath while engaging in sports and aerobic activities, generalized daytime tiredness/fatigue as well as compromised quality of sleep often associated with snoring or worse- obstructive sleep apnea. Often these medical conditions can be worsened by other findings such as a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates (nasal membranes) or chronic sinusitis. Imagine, all of these debilitating symptoms may be reduced or completely alleviated by corrective nasal surgery often with cosmetic benefits as well.

“While a percentage of patients consult regarding reconstructive or purely cosmetic procedures, an increasing number are seeking to improve upon the results of a previous rhinoplasty surgery,” notes Dr. Portnoy. Earlier nasal surgeries may have left the patient with impaired functionality. Revision rhinoplasty procedures often can restore one’s ability to breathe and at the same time provide for a more aesthetically pleasing nose. “Patients often report an immediate boost in their self-esteem. It is extremely gratifying to provide patients with a new nose and a new, enhanced outlook on life,” Dr. Portnoy concludes.

This one corrective procedure incorporates all of the techniques inherent in functional and cosmetic surgeries together. By employing an ‘open’ or external approach that provides access to the supportive framework of the nose, cartilaginous grafts harvested from other body sources such as the nasal septum or the auricle can be meticulously placed in the nose allowing Dr. Portnoy to obtain results that are not only effective functionally but visually pleasing as well. Utilizing one’s own tissue provides for extremely predictable results with a very low infection and complication rate. Best of all, the external approach heals with minimal swelling, almost no visible scars and may promote faster healing than traditional rhinoplasty approaches.
