Septorhinoplasty

  • septorhinoplasty

    A septorhinoplasty is the combination of both rhinoplasty and septoplasty. The “septo” portion being the part of the procedure that deals with the functional aspects of the nose. While the “rhinoplasty” portion addresses the aesthetic changes desired in the nose. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose and have problems breathing, there is a high probability that your nose can be modified to allow you more comfort breathing and increased pleasure in your appearance.

    Dr. Elam offers complimentary consultations to his patients. During the septorhinoplasty consultation Dr. Elam uses Digital Imaging to show the consulting patient their proposed surgical results. A printed copy of this image will be made available to take home and share with family and friends. Dr. Elam’s patients will also be able to view his extensive pre and post-operative photo library. While we keep all patient surgeries completely confidential on many occasions Dr. Elam’s post surgical patients enjoy an opportunity to discuss their procedure with a consulting patient. This allows the consulting patient a chance to see other patients in various stages of recovery.
