laser surgeryWelcome to Riverside's home page. As medical director of the facility, Dr. Frank Scaccia is a uniquely qualified Dual Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Otolaryngologist who specializes in cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift and treatment of sinus/nasal disorders. After a unanimous vote by his peers, Dr. Scaccia was appointed for 2012 as the Chairman and Section Chief for the departments of Ear, Nose and Throat, and Head & Neck Surgery at Meridian Health's Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank, NJ. Riverview is one of the busiest and most respected hospitals in the region being a 5 time winner of The J.D. Power and Associates Award. His list of honors in plastic surgery includes the Jack Anderson Award which he won in 1995 after receiving the highest score in the United States on the certifying exam given by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. In addition, his surgical abilities have been featured in Time, Newsweek, Channel 7 "Eyewitness News," and most recently this past June on the "Anderson Cooper Show" where a TV personality was commenting to Mr. Cooper how much she likes her new nose that Dr. Scaccia operated on for her and that he is an "amazing doctor." He has also contributed to the medical literature with publications in textbook and journals. Dr. Scaccia was one of the first to publish in a textbook a technique to perform simultaneous rhinoplasty and sinus surgery. Follow this link for a copy of this interesting book chapter.
MM More recently, Dr. Scaccia has been named as one of New Jersey's leading cosmetic surgeons in a special article on "Top Beauty Docs" by NJ Savvy Living Magazine magazine in the February 2006 through 2009 editions. Furthermore, he was cited as one of only seven cosmetic surgeons in New Jersey that was specifically recognized for his rhinoplasty nose skills. The criteria for selection of this honor was based on Castle Connolly's physician lead research team who uses a vigorous screening process to survey physicians and administrators at leading hospitals for recommendations of highly skilled, exceptional doctors in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery. In addition Dr. Scaccia has also earned the prestigious recognition of being listed in the 2006 to 2010 editions of "The Guide to America's Top Physicians," the 2006 through 2013 editions of "Top Doctors: New York Metro Area," the 2011 listing in "US News &World Report" of Top Doctors and 2012 edition of Top Doctors: The-Star-Ledger's Inside Jersey, the Marquis' 2007 through 2012 editions of "Who'sWho in America" and most recently, has been selected for inclusion in both the 2010 and 2012 editions of "Who'sWho in Medicine and Healthcare," and the 2011 through 2012 edition of "Who'sWho in the World." Finally, Dr Scaccia has the added distinction of being included in the 2013 list of "Top Cosmetic Doctors" in the nation by Castle Connelly Medical Ltd.
MM His new office is located in the historic town of Red Bank allowing convenient access from all northern and central New Jersey sites and the New York City metropolitan area. The plastic surgery NJ and sinus center NJ includes it's own federally approved and accredited ambulatory outpatient surgical suite built to hospital safety standards and is one of the first in Monmouth County to utilize Brain Lab's Image Guided Navigational Sinus System allowing for state-of-the-art endoscopic sinus surgery.
MMRiverside has also been awarded accreditation by JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) the nation's leading evaluator among hospitals and other healthcare groups for quality care and patient safety.

Your safety, comfort and privacy are our top priorities. Procedures can be performed under various levels of anesthesia (including general and twilight sleep) and will be administered by only board certified physician anesthesiologists. You will find that Dr. Scaccia's commitment to safety and excellence is exemplified throughout this web site. One benchmark is the fact that in his 20 years (residency training and private practice) as a physician (which includes thousands of surgical procedures) no medical malpractice judgments or even settlements have ever been brought against him.

Revision Sinus Surgery Atlantic Highlands NJ 07716

 

A rhinoplastic correction can be performed on a patient who is under sedation, under general anaesthesia, or under local anaesthesia; initially, a local anaesthetic mixture oflidocaine and epinephrine is injected to numb the area, and temporarily reduce vascularity, thereby limiting any bleeding. Generally, the plastic surgeon first separates the nasal skin and the soft tissues from the osseo-cartilagenous nasal framework, and then corrects (reshapes) them as required, afterwards, sutures the incisions, and then applies either an external or an internal stent, and tape, to immobilize the newly reconstructed nose, and so facilitate the healing of the surgical cuts. Occasionally, the surgeon uses either an autologous cartilage graft or a bone graft, or both, in order to strengthen or to alter the nasal contour(s). The autologous grafts usually are harvested from the nasal septum, but, if it has insufficient cartilage (as can occur in a revision rhinoplasty), then either a costal cartilage graft (from the rib cage) or an auricular cartilage graft (concha from the ear) is harvested from the patient’s body. When the rhinoplasty requires a bone graft, it is harvested from either the cranium, the hips, or the rib cage; moreover, when neither type of autologous graft is available, a synthetic graft (nasal implant) is used to augment the nasal bridge.

Photographic records

For the benefit of patient and the physician–surgeon, a photographic history of the entire rhinoplastic procedure is established; beginning at the pre-operative consultation, continuing during the surgical operation procedures, and concluding with the post-operative outcome. To record the “before-and-after” physiognomies of the nose and the face of the patient, the specific visual perspectives required are photographs of the nose viewed from the anteroposterior (front-to-back) perspective; the lateral view (profiles), the worm’s-eye view (from below), the bird’s-eye view (overhead), and three-quarter-profile views.

  • Open rhinoplasty: At rhinoplasty’s end, after the plastic surgeon has sutured (closed) the incisions, the corrected (new) nose will be dressed, taped, and splinted immobile to permit the uninterrupted healing of the surgical incisions. The purple-ink guidelines ensured the surgeon’s accurate cutting of the defect correction plan. Revision sinus surgery Atlantic Highlands NJ 07716.
  • Open rhinoplasty: The new nose is prepared with paper tape in order to receive the metal nasal-splint that will immobilize it to maintain its correct shape as a new nose. Revision sinus surgery Atlantic Highlands NJ 07716.
  • Open rhinoplasty: After the preliminary taping of the nose, a custom-made, metal nasal-splint, designed, cut, and formed by the surgeon, is emplaced to immobilize and protect the tender tissues of the new nose during convalescence.
  • Open rhinoplasty: The taping, emplacement of the metal splint, and dressing of the new nose complete the rhinoplasty procedure. The patient then convalesces, and the wound dressing will be removed at 1-week post-procedure.
  • Photograph 1. — Open rhinoplasty: The incisions are endonasal (in the nose), and thus are hidden. The skin-incision to the columella aids the plastic surgeon in precisely suturing to hide thescar — except for the columellar incision (red-dot guideline) across the nasal base. The columellar incision allows the surgeon to view the size, shape, and condition of the nasal cartilages and bones to be corrected.
  • Photograph 2. — Open rhinoplasty: The nasal interior. The scissors indicate the lower lateral cartilage (blue), which is one of the wing-shaped cartilages that conform the tip of the nose. The jagged red delineation indicates the locale of the columellar incision. Once the skin has been lifted from the bone-and-cartilage framework, the surgeon performs the nasal correction tasks.
  • Photograph 3. — Open rhinoplasty: To narrow the tip of a too-wide nose, the surgeon first determines the cause of the excess nasal width. The suture being emplaced will narrow the tip of the nose. The red delineation indicates the edge of the nose-tip cartilage, which is narrowed when the surgeon tightens the folded cartilage apex. The suture (light blue) ends in the needle (white); tweezers (green) hold the nasal cartilage in place for the suturing. Revision sinus surgery Atlantic Highlands NJ 07716.
  • Photograph 4. — Nasal hump excision: The black delineation indicates the desired nose-reduction outcome: a straight nose. The nasal hump is bone (red) above the scalloped grey line, and cartilage (blue) below the scalloped grey line. The surgeon cuts the cartilage portion of the hump with a scalpel, and chisels the bone portion with an osteotome (bone chisel). After chiselling away the main mass of the nasal hump with an osteotome, the surgeon then sculpts, refines, and smoothens the cut nasal bones with rasps (files).
