You may want to change things about your face that were either present from birth or occurred as a result of an accident. These may be cosmetic or functional fixes. Examples of conditions that would benefit from the skilled surgeons at ENT and Allergy Specialists include:
Specific cosmetic procedures include brow lifts to improve forehead wrinkles, surgery to reduce protruding ears and droopy eyebrows, and liposuction to remove extra fat under the chin or in the neck. At ENT and Allergy Specialists, you also have the option of rhinoplasty to improve the appearance or function of your nose.
An otolaryngologist can receive up to 15 years of college and post-graduate training in plastic surgery, concentrating on procedures that reconstruct the elements of the face.
Post-graduate training includes a year of general surgery, four years of residency in otolaryngology, which includes disorders of the ears, nose, and throat, and may also include 1-2 years in a fellowship dedicated to facial plastic surgery.
After passing a rigorous set of exams given by the American Board of Otolaryngology, otolaryngologists may become board-certified in the specialty of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery.
Because they study the complex anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the entire head and neck, these ENT specialists are uniquely qualified to perform procedures that affect the whole face.
Some procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, so you can go home the same day, while others require a short hospital stay of one or two nights. Your doctor explains aftercare to conduct at home, and you receive gauze, dressings, and medications to assist with your recovery.
You’ll need to avoid vigorous activity for a few weeks and refrain from weight lifting or contact sports for a month or so. Most people can expect to return to work within a week or two of surgery, which is the time at which swelling and bruising from the surgery dramatically reduces.
