Medical Conditions That Rhinoplasty Can Improve

While some people seek rhinoplasty to improve their appearance, others seek this procedure as a way to correct a medical problem. With this procedure, a surgeon performs an operation to restructure the nose. Expert surgeons can do far more than change the shape and appearance of the nose during surgery. They can greatly improve nasal function through this procedure, which is extremely advantageous to patients suffering with breathing problems due to an imperfection inside the nose.

Patients suffering from conditions such as a deviated septum, sleep apnea, or a broken/injured nose stemming from an accident are all possible candidates for a rhinoplasty. In these cases, expert surgeons can make slight or major modifications to the inner or outer structure of the nose and correct breathing problems.

Many people with a deviated septum report chronic fatigue symptoms. This is not surprising considering that a deviated septum can restrict nasal function, causing a reduction in oxygen. At Boston Rhinoplasty, we educate patients suffering from nasal imperfections in an effort to help them understand that serious problems can arise, often without warning. Many people are surprised to learn that these medical conditions can cause far more than an inconvenience alone. In fact, there are countless cases of people who have died as a result of sleep apnea, a condition where a person stops breathing for a period of time while asleep. 

If you have been told that you have a deviated septum or sleep apnea, or have sustained a serious injury to your nose, it is crucial that you schedule an appointment with a surgeon to determine whether you will benefit from rhinoplasty. At Boston Rhinoplasty, we offer prospective patients a comprehensive free consultation where we can help determine whether surgery will improve nasal function for you. If you are suffering from a deviated septum, sleep apnea, or perhaps have sustained an injury affecting your nose, we are here to help. Contact us today!
