UI Physician To Answer Rhinoplasty Questions

Grant Hamilton, M.D., a leading specialist in facial plastic surgery at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, will present a free educational seminar on rhinoplasty from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 1, at Hotel Vetro in downtown Iowa City.

Rhinoplasty literally means reshaping the nose. The goal of rhinoplasty is to improve appearance and function of the nose, making it harmonize better with other facial features. Skin type, ethnic background and age are important factors to consider.

The nose should blend with other facial features and never draw attention from the eyes. By emphasizing the structural approach to rhinoplasty, form and function can be enhanced and provide a natural-looking result. Each year, half a million men and women seek a consultation with a facial plastic surgeon to improve the appearance of their noses.

During this free, public seminar, Hamilton will answer attendees' questions about rhinoplasty. He is the region's only board-certified, fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon.

Advance registration is available by calling UI Health Access toll free at 800-777-8442, but walk-ins also are welcome. Complimentary parking is available in the Sheraton parking ramp next to Hotel Vetro. Bring your ramp ticket with you to be validated at the front desk.
