Mayo Clinic's approach

  • Teamwork. At Mayo Clinic, an integrated, experienced team of specialists treat people who have reconstructive nose surgery. Your doctor will either be a facial plastic surgeon who is also an ear, nose and throat specialist (otorhinolaryngologist) or a plastic surgeon.
  • Individualized care. Mayo Clinic's board-certified facial plastic surgeons or general plastic surgeons customize your nose surgery to your facial structure and needs.
  • Expertise and experience. Mayo Clinic surgeons who have expertise and experience in the necessary surgical techniques will provide you with the most appropriate surgical options.

Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., are ranked among the Best Hospitals for ear, nose and throat by U.S. News & World Report.
