Remember that apnea means the breathing stops for ten seconds or more. True apnea is more likely to happen in someone that may be predisposed to it. The blockage following surgery is temporary. ...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

Does a flat nasal bridge and wide set eyes always mean a chromosome disorder?

Does a flat nasal bridge and wide set eyes always mean a chromosome disorder?

No: Sometimes this is a normal inherited trait. Try to see if others in the family share that trait. If you suspect that this person has a chromosome disorder, the doctors that diagnose them are called genetecists. If the person is your child it's best to see a pediatrician about your concerns first. (of course, if this is a coworker or the like, it's best to just leave it be ;). ...Read more

See alllergist: These may be all related to allergy. Unless the spur is obstructing your passages permanently, surgery would not make much difference. Even if you have the surgery, your allergic problem would not go away. Get a 2nd opinion before you go for the surgery. If you have access to an allergist, go see one. In the meanwhile, make sure that you are aiming the nasal spray towards the side of the nose. ...Read more

Revision rhinoplasty: Choosing a revision rhinoplasty surgeon can at the outset seem like a daunting task. It's important to choose a list of potential surgeons critically before narrowing down the ones to consult with based on board-certification, training, credentials, patient reviews, before/after pictures, etc. I would recommend a minimum of 3 consultations, and a maximum of as many as it takes to feel comfortabl. ...Read more
