My specialisation in nasal surgery
During my professional career, I have specialised exclusively in nasal surgery, primarily in aesthetic nasal operations. My focus on rhinoplasty has enabled me to reach a high degree of proficiency.
The nose as a specialist area
Why did I choose to focus on the nose in particular? Well, I find it fascinating. The nose is a woefully underappreciated organ that is largely ignored until it stops working. Located in the middle of the face, the nose is of key importance for an individual's personal appearance for radiating an individuals personality and charm. As an olfactory organ it is responsible for our perception of smell. The sensation of smell is associated with enjoyment and pleasure. We smell the spring, flowers, people. Smell can trigger memories or may warn us from danger.
Significance of nasal surgery
Top-class nasal surgery is much more than simply operating with great precision. It is the combination of surgical precision and sensitivity towards the personal wishes of the patient. This is where my long-standing experience plays a pivotal role.
My operating philosophy
One cannot change the shape of a nose by simply excising tissue. This is still a very common misconception, even today. Even when a minor change is made to the contours of the nose, the whole structure of the nose and its role and function must be considered when deciding on the operating technique.
No nose operation
I will not perform an operation if a patient wishes to have a particular nose shape which I feel will negatively impact the harmony of his or her facial features.
Your trust in us
As your treatment team, we make every effort to ensure that you feel comfortable with us as a patient and receive individually tailored treatment. Trust between the patient, the doctor and the team is a vital prerequisite for the surgery to become a success. Trust can only be developed by means of thorough, unrushed consultations. I will spare no effort to ensure that this is the case.
During the consultations, we use computer simulation to discuss the particular nose shape that you would like to have, the character of your face, and your own personal charisma. Many requests can be fulfilled.
Many patients contact me after having undergone an unsatisfactory initial operation elsewhere. My long-standing experience in nose surgery enables me to achieve improvements even in difficult situations.
Long - term experience
For 25 years do nose surgery. My long -term experience and follow- up many years after surgery allow me an accurate assessment of long term surgical results.
As your nasal surgeon I am not only your surgeon and physician but also your personal cosmetic consultant.
