Functional and Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
Though the term ‘plastic surgery’ is often associated with aesthetic appeal, Dr. Minton’s specialized training has allowed him to refine his expertise, taking his practice far beyond what you see on the surface. For example, sleep apnea and plastic surgery aren’t often directly associated; however, pulmonologists frequently refer patients to Dr. Minton to help alleviate the symptoms of sleep apnea by surgically repairing nasal tissue and/or a deviated septum. Approaching each patient as uniquely individual, Dr. Minton has been trained in techniques that utilize the smallest of incisions to those that call for total reconstruction.
Treatment for melanoma, basil cell or squamous cell skin cancer on the face can be a delicate procedure and can vary depending on the type of cancer, where it is located and the size. Dr. Minton can perform:
- Mohs surgery for basil cell and squamous cell skin cancer.
- Reconstruction after Mohs surgery
- Scar revision
Mohs-Surgery Reconstruction for skin cancer
Mohs micrographic surgery is a very effective and safe treatment for skin cancer. The surgery entails taking very thin layers of cancerous skin, but the benefit is that it leaves behind the greatest amount of healthy skin. It can leave defects, but this is where Dr. Minton's expertise in cosmetic and facial surgery is key. His reconstruction can take place on the same day of surgery or later.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common and difficult plastic surgery techniques. But it isn't just for cosmetic purposes. For patients with chronic sinusitis or a deviated septum, Dr. Minton's extensive knowledge of the structures of the face can effectively treat breathing problems.
Dr. Minton performs scar revision procedures to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location.
Ear Reconstruction and Otoplasty
Dr. Minton has extensive experience with correcting malformed ears or improving the position, shape or proportion of the ear.
