"You guys are great and your work is great too! Thanx for a job well done!"
"Overall, the experience was exceptional. The staff at Dr. Winter's office is very accommodating and professional. I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Winters. I am extremely happy with the results of my rhinoplasty...he has changed my life while providing the supet human touch that we all need. As a nurse, I work with many physicians and by far, he is one of the best!
"Excellent as usual"
I am suffering from deviated nasal septum. But no symptoms , no problem. Only cosmetic problems. Should i go for a surgery or not???
The presence of a 'deviated septum' by itself is not an indication for surgery, The septum, along with several other cartilaginous and mucosal structures of the nose contribute to the anatomical and functional nasal airway. When a deviated septum alone or in combination with other factors results in a bonafide airway compromise, septal and nasal airway surgery may be indicated. Oftentimes, the degree of airway obstruction is hard to quantify and results from airway surgery largely subjecitive.
In addition to its role in breathing, the deviated septum can contribute to cosmetic issues particularly with regard to whether or not the nose appears straight. While surgery to correct appearance may also result in functional improvement and visa versa, there must be an airway problem to justify the surgery as a medical necessity. While cosmetic surgery by definition is not medically necessary, whether or not to consider aesthetic nasal surgery must be based on a number of factors including but not limited to your goals/expectations, the skill/experience/aesthetic judgement of your surgeon and your appetite for risk.
