As part of our facial plastic services, Dr. Rothbaum performs rhinoplasty, which alters the external shape of the nose.
The advantage of undergoing this procedure with an otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat doctor) is that an ENT physician can surgically change the external appearance of the nose without compromising the structural components of it. If a rhinoplasty is performed without consideration of the underlying nasal anatomy, it can lead to deformity of the nose, or decreased ability to breathe through the nose.
Dr. Rothbaum also performs reconstructive surgery for those patients who have undergone MOHS surgery by their dermatologist.
He works closely with a patient’s dermatologist in order to coordinate care for a patient, which results in a quick transition from excision of a cancerous lesion to reconstruction with aesthetically pleasing results.
