Address this: Should not feel abnormal about your nose. That said, you may have issues about the appearance of it. The appearance of the nose can be changed.

You can see a competent nasal surgeon to evaluate your nose and indicate if surgery can address your concerns. ...Read more

Possible depression because of my very prominent nose. What should I do?

Mirror work: Body image issues are addressed with mirror work exercises and developing a sense of self-worth and identity not based on the size of your nose or waist or hips any other body part. If the condition doesn't seem to move sometimes people have the surgery to help "change from the outside in". I don't judge people who choose that option. Try therapy first and then decide. ...Read more

2 groin lymph nodes excised both dermatopathic lymphadentis. Now another very prominent not enlarged lymph Nose on other side. What to do? Its new

Hard to say!: Have you been checked for std's? Shaving, waxing, harsh soaps, overscrubbing, scents can all cause enough irritation in the skin to cause lymph nodes to react and swell. If none of these could be the reason, and stopping or treating them does not help, you need further evaluation to figure out what's going on. Congratulations on being skinny enough to be able to feel them! (The silver lining!) ...Read more

I got recently black pimple on my nose. It's not prominent pimple but dark dot flushed with skin. Seems under skin! . How to remove this?

Acne: Acne or comedo occurs when the sebaceous gland surrounding the hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. Blackheads are open comedo with oxidized sebum which give it the black color. Ultimately the content of the gland will surface and clear the pimple. I fo not encourage applying manual pressure to pimples, especially in middle of face. OTC Benzoyl Peroxide is a good start. ...Read more

Head bandage vs headband after otoplasty for prominent ears in adults, which is better?

Head bandage vs headband after otoplasty for prominent ears in adults, which is better?

Why choose?: Each offers benefits. I send patients home with a head wrap for security. Once the wrap is removed, a head band is used at night. It should protect the ears from folding forward, but should not be tight. Tight bands can cause injury to the skin and change the shape of the ear. Be sure to check with your plastic surgeon. ...Read more

I have a 1 month baby born with a prominent broad nasal bridge. Is there something to be done at this age for this craniofacial abnormality?

May be normal: We get so used to the way older kids and adults look that sometimes we are bothered by normal variations in a newborn. The midface begins to appear more narrow as the nose begins to grow forward in middle childhood. Infants tend to be flat faced and the nasal root can be broad and normal. Discuss this with you pediatrician. There are published standards for the normal variations of these features. ...Read more

Depends: This is not unusual and the treatment if any depends on the degree of difference. Kids most often come out this way do to the way they are positioned in the womb, or gradually develop it due to sleep position. In the US, plastic surgeons may treat with a variety of inserts positioned within and around the ear or ears. You might check with your doc first to see if won't improve on its own. ...Read more
