Revision Sinus Surgery Los Angeles
Several surgical approaches are available to allow access to the nose for surgery, and the decision of which approach is best is dependent upon the anatomy and desired changes of the patient. The final outcome can take up to a year to be realized. Revision Sinus Surgery Los Angeles is even more difficult and challenging to perform because there is scar tissue and altered anatomy that must be dealt with from prior surgery. Oftentimes, too much cartilage has been removed from the nose making it difficult to create an ideal shape. The remaining cartilage is too weak to support the nose and collapses, making it difficult to breathe. To correct these problems, it is often necessary to utilize cartilage grafts to reconstruct the nose.
