Function of an Otolaryngologist
A wide range of surgical procedures is performed by an otolaryngologist in the daily treatment of nose, ear, larynx, sinuses, pharynx, neck, oral cavity, salivary glands, thyroid, esophagus, and bronchial tubes. They also perform plastic surgery of the neck and head area.
Head and neck doctors that specialize in ear work can restore hearing using modernistic micro-surgery. Their surgical techniques can also help cure infection and disease while repairing birth deformities prevalent in the ear.
Many otolaryngologists using their extensive knowledge perform facial plastic surgery. They can reconstruct the ears, nose, facial area, and jaws for restoring appearance and functionality. Flaps, grafts, and man-made materials are used for solving problems that cannot be handled through conventional surgical methods.
They have techniques for using cosmetic surgery to enhance the shape and size of the ear and nose, face and brow lifts, wrinkle removal, chin, ear and nose augmentation, scar camouflaging, and hair transplantation.
Training of an otolaryngologist includes planning the surgery and treatment of benign cancer and tumors in the neck and head. They are also capable of performing reconstructive techniques for restoring function and form in such patients.
Cases such as nose bleeds, adenoidectomies, tonsillectomies, sinus disease and infected mastoids are routinely handled by otolaryngologists. They can also test hearing and diagnose the reason behind hearing loss. They can also treat communicative and speech disorders.
Performing Facial Plastic Surgery
Otolaryngologists or ENT specialists diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions involving the nose, face, ears, lips, and neck. Facial plastic surgery can be divided into reconstructive and cosmetic. Reconstructive cosmetic surgery helps in improving conditions present since birth.

Reconstructive surgery can also be used for improving appearance as a result of trauma, accidents, burns and previous surgery. In some cases, the surgery may be used for treating existing diseases such as skin cancer.
