From the beginning, L. Mike Nayak, MD, has dedicated his career to facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Nayak has a passion for precision and excellence, and has created and refined some of the most innovative cosmetic fat transfer, facelift, and rhinoplasty techniques available. He teaches these techniques to other practicing cosmetic surgeons, including many in the St. Louis area. He is also a frequent lecturer at national facial plastic surgery meetings, and was recently named “Clinical Professor of the Year” by residents at St. Louis University Medical School.
Dr. Nayak excelled in Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics at Yale, headed his medical school class at Washington University, and performed his Otolaryngology/ Head and Neck Surgery residency at Harvard Medical School. He is also board-certified and fellowship-trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and achieved the second-highest score nationally when he sat for the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery written and oral examinations.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal sculpting, is the art ofmaking a prominent, misshapen, or unattractive nose look more normal. A prominent bump, a drooping or ball-shaped tip, or crookedness can attract attention to the nose and away from your better features. Correcting these issues allows the eyes and smile to take center stage. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is performed in a surgery center with the patient fully asleep. Dr. Nayak uses advanced suturing techniques which prevent the need for packing, so recovery is comfortable. The splint taped to the outside of the nose is removed at 1 week, and most patients return to work or school at that point. Rhinoplasty is often combined with straightening a deviated nasal septum to allow improved breathing after the procedure. During your consultation for rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Nayak will ask you what about your nose bothers you, and may also ask you to talk about other, related areas of your face, such as your chin, jawline, or neck. Dr. Nayak will likely ask you to point out, very specifically, what you’d like to see changed. Identifying exactly what needs to be addressed is the cornerstone of good results!
