Reconstructive rhinoplasty is the medical term for reconstructing a nose for functional rather than cosmetic purposes. The most common kinds of nasal reconstruction the renowned Denver nose surgery specialist Dr. Slenkovich performs include:

  • A deviated septum or blocked nasal passages – known as septoplasty or septo-rhinoplasty
  • Repair of a broken nose
  • Reconstructions for trauma, solid tumors, skin cancer or other defects or scars.

Repair of a deviated nasal septum or blocked nasal passages is highly successful at relieving nasal obstruction. It is used to correct problems with the nose, such as breathing difficulties and/or damage incurred through injury. Nasal airway surgery is often related to the repair of a broken nose or reconstruction for trauma, and they are often combined in a given case. Aesthetic rhinoplasty is closely related and often those techniques are part of reconstructive surgery as well.

How Is the Procedure Performed?

Septoplasty and septorhinoplasty are performed on an outpatient basis under sedation with local or general anesthesia. We perform these surgeries in our brand-new, state-of-the-art surgical center, located in the same building as our practice office.

What Is Recovery Like?

Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Splints are commonly used inside the nose, which are removed within the first week. Commonly breathing is better immediately after removing the internal splints. If rhinoplasty is combined with septoplasty, recovery follows that described under nose reshaping.

Is Reconstructive Rhinoplasty Covered By Insurance?

Septoplasty and nasal obstruction surgery are commonly covered by insurance companies. At this time we are not accepting new insurance patients. However, if you are interested in seeking reimbursement from your insurance we are happy to provide you with the medical billing codes for self submission.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
