Sinus & Facial Plastics Institute
Sinus & Facial Plastic Institute is the first and only facility in central Florida that is dedicated to the complete medical care of the nose,
both cosmetic and functional. This is made possible by Wade W. Han,
M.D., a Harvard trained, double boarded facial plastic and head and
neck surgeon, who has brought to central Florida the most advanced
medical diagnostic and surgical techniques in the treatment of nasal
structural dysfunction such as nasal obstruction and chronic sinusitis
as well as external aesthetic deformity or imperfection. Dr. Han's
double certified expertise enables him to evaluate the nose and sinus
structures as a whole and treat them in a complete and systematic
fashion, to achieve optimal outcome and to avoid many potential
limitations and pitfalls found in those one dimensional approaches.
Patients no longer have to find separate specialist to deal with
medical and cosmetic needs. Many of our referrals come to us by word of
mouth, from happy, satisfied patients and their doctors. Some come to
us after experiencing unsatisfactory results obtained elsewhere. Our
facility is located in Dr. Phillips of southwest Orlando, near
Windermere, MetroWest, Hunters Creek and Celebration, with easy
accessibility from all areas in central Florida via I-4 and Florida
Turnpike. The office is well equipped with fiberoptic endoscopic and
microscopic diagnostic systems, professional photo and video suite,
computer imaging system, operating suite and onsite CT scanner. The
state of art facility, as well as Dr. Han's credentials and experience,
make Sinus & Facial Plastics Institute the central Florida's center of excellence in your total nose care.
Sinusitis affects 37 million people each year, making it one of the most common health prob lems in the United States. It is more prevalent than arthritis and hypertension and has a greater impact on quality of life than diabetes or congestive heart failure. Symptoms may significantly affect people physically, functionally, and emotionally.1 Sinusitis is usually preceded by a cold, allergy attack or irritation from environmental pollutants. Often, the resulting symptoms, such as nasal pressure and congestion run their course in a few days. If symptoms persist, a bacterial infection or acute sinusitis may develop. If the condition occurs frequently or lasts three months or more, it may be chronic sinusitis. The most frequently used treatments for chronic sinusitis are medical therapies and/or sinus surgery.
