Nasal Reconstructive Surgery
Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital has become an international destination for reconstructive nasal surgery. Patients from as far away as Russia, the Middle East, and South America have travelled to Tucson to have their noses rebuilt. Much of the reason for St. Joseph's national and international appeal as a reconstructive haven, is the expertise of Frederick J. Menick, MD, Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Dr. Menick is considered a world-renowned expert on nasal and facial reconstructive surgery.
What We Offer at Carondelet
Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital provides an array of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures to improve the form and function of the nose. More than 160 nasal reconstructive surgeries are performed at the hospital each year. With Dr. Menick’s leadership, the hospital offers a respected center of expertise for rebuilding the nose for any number of reasons, including birth defects, cancer excisions, trauma, infection, human and animal bites or poor results from previous rhinoplasty.
The appearance of an imperfectly shaped but normal nose can be improved. An altogether missing nose can be rebuilt after disease or injury. And though anguish associated with nasal deformity can be significant, recovery following nasal surgery is rapid and many procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. More importantly, the aesthetic and functional results can be excellent with minimal facial scarring.
