3 Medical Conditions Addressed by Rhinoplasty
There are three common medical reasons a patient may choose to undergo a rhinoplasty.
Deviated Nasal Septum
A deviated nasal septum can lead to chronic congestion, breathing issues, and snoring. Surgical intervention may be necessary to facilitate an open airway for the nostrils. Rhinoplasty surgery can address a deviated nasal septum.
Nasal Valve Obstruction
Nasal valve obstruction is a common cause of chronic nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty can address the root of this problem, which is an obstruction within the nasal cavity. Once the blocked valve is cleared, the patient will be able to breathe with ease.
Every year, thousands of people across the country undergo facial reconstruction after an accident or injury. Because of the nose’s central position on the face, it is at risk for fracturing during facial injury. Rhinoplasty in this setting restructures the nasal framework and re-establishes bony continuity prior to trauma.
