Surgery of the Nose / Cleft Nasal Reconstruction & Deviated Septum

Click here to view our before & after gallery

A cleft lip nasal deformity usually occurs along with a cleft lip and palate, or a separation in the two sides of the lip and the palate or roof of the mouth. This separation can affect the nose, causing it to look widened and flattened because the cartilage is displaced. The nasal septum, or structure within the nose that separates the left and right nostril, is often not aligned properly in cases of cleft lip and palate, requiring cleft nasal and deviated septum reconstruction to restore proper breathing.

A deviated septum can also occur separate from a cleft lip and/or palate. Whether caused by a congenital defect, result of trauma, or disease like skin cancer, a deviated septum can affect breathing and cause congestion problems in patients. More severe cases of rosacea can result in the development of rhinophyma which causes the nose to become large, bulbous, and inflamed. Rhinophyma often constricts the airways of patients and makes it difficult to breathe.

All these conditions call for reconstructive surgery of the nose or rhinoplasty in order to restore both form and function to the patient’s nose allowing for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance and easier breathing.

Surgery for Cleft Lip & Palate in Adults

cleft surgeryCleft Lip and Palate reconstruction is beneficial not only for children, but also to lessen the physical and emotional effects the condition can have on adult patients as well.  Also known as late cleft deformities, the condition can result in misaligned jaws and teeth, missing teeth, nasal and breathing problems, speech problems, and uneven lip appearance that can be enhanced with adult cleft lip and palate  reconstruction regardless of a patient’s age.

Using the latest reconstructive surgery techniques, Dr. Burstein establishes a relationship with his Atlanta reconstructive surgery patients to ensure that their surgical plan result in the best aesthetic and functional improvements possible for his patients.
