Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Some of the conditions treated under this speciality area include:
- Rhinoplasty: surgery of the internal and external nose in order to reconstruct bone and/or cartilage to improve appearance and function.
- Cosmetic Procedures: includes browlift, liposuction of the neck, otoplasty (reshaping cartilage of the ears), non-surgical procedures.
- Facial Reconstruction: used to reconstruct defects caused by injury or trauma to not only improve appearance but also to improve critical functions of the face, nose, eyes, etc.
The speciality of laryngology focuses on the function, illness and injury of the larynx, which is commonly referred to as the voice box. The voice box sits at the front of the neck, and contains vocal cords. It is responsible for sound producing, swallowing, and plays critical role in breathing. Some conditions that may affect the function of the larynx include lesions, infections or inflammatory conditions, cancer, autoimmune conditions, and vocal cord motion abnormalities.
