Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that refines the shape of the nose, bringing it into balance with other features of the face. Rhinoplasty alone cannot give you a perfect profile or make you look like someone else; however, it can help to improve the overall of your face. The nose is the central focal point of the face. Many people consider Rhinoplasty in order to draw less attention to the nose so that other facial features like their eyes, lips and hair become more prominent. Patients are generally very pleased with the results of surgery.
Septoplasty is a surgical procedure used to straighten the septum, the partition between the nostrils, improving the nasal airway and overall function of the nose and sinuses. Indications for surgery include; restricted breathing through the nose, recurring nose bleeds, sinus obstruction and nasal trauma. Septoplasty is often performed in conjunction with Rhinoplasty.
The main reasons for this surgery are:
To repair a crooked, bent, or deformed nasal septum that blocks the airway in your nose. People with this condition usually breathe through their mouth and may be more likely to get nasal or sinus infections.
