WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?
Rhinoplasty surgery repairs structural defects or abnormalities in the nose. It is often performed after an injury that has altered nasal shape or to correct a mismatch in proportions that impact patients’ appearances. The procedure can be performed with either an open or closed surgical technique to correct issues that include:
- Long or drooping tip
- Length or width of the nose
- Uneven nostrils
- Nasal asymmetry
For those with a deviated septum, rhinoplasty can improve an obstructed airway and can increase airflow, so patients can breathe freely. This can have positive effects ranging from better sleep and sports performance to decreased nasal stuffiness and more energy. While some patients seek rhinoplasty strictly for functional reasons, they often find that the results create aesthetic benefits as well.
