For most ENT conditions, your doctor at Southern ENT Associates implements all possible conservative treatments before recommending surgery.
When your condition requires surgery, however, you can count on the compassionate, dedicated, and skilled care you’ll receive before, during, and after your procedure.
Although the team offers surgical interventions that cover the full range of ENT problems, these are a few examples of conditions they often treat with surgery:
• Chronic sinusitis
• Thyroid disease
• Acoustic neuromas
• Nose fractures
They also perform tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies, airway reconstructions, and hearing restorations. You can also receive comprehensive care for head and neck cancers, from tumor removal to reconstructive surgery.
Many people don’t think of going to an ENT physician for plastic surgery, but they’re the experts in ears and noses, and that includes plastic surgery for your ear and nose.
If you’re considering nose surgery, even if it’s for cosmetic purposes, it’s important to see an ENT specialist to ensure any changes to your nose don’t affect your ability to breathe.
The team at Southern ENT Associates offers cosmetic procedures such as:
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty): Ear surgery is done to improve the shape, position, or proportion of your ear. Otoplasty can also correct a defect in ear structure, whether it’s there at birth or is the result of an injury. The team often repairs torn earlobes, drooping ears, and ears that are too large or stick out.
Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty): Nose surgery can be for cosmetic purposes, but can also improve nasal function. For example, you may need to alleviate chronic congestion, correct nasal deformities, or repair a deviated septum. When it’s for cosmetic reasons, rhinoplasty can change the size and width of your nose, eliminate bumps on the bridge, and correct asymmetry. Surgery can also take care of the tip of your nose if it’s too bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked.
Whenever possible, your surgery is performed using minimally invasive techniques. The minimally invasive surgery uses a few tiny incisions, or in many cases, no incision. With specialized instruments, the surgery may be through your nostrils, for example.
The health benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:
• Faster recovery time
• Less pain, bruising, and scarring
• Less anesthesia required
• Less blood loss
• Lower risk of infection
If you have any questions about ear, nose, or throat surgery, call Southern ENT Associates, which specializes in pediatric and adult head and neck surgery. We serve patients from Thibodaux LA, Houma LA, Raceland LA, Morgan City LA, New Iberia LA, and Youngsville LA, and surrounding areas.
