Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is one of the most common procedures performed today. Nose surgery can reshape, reduce or augment a person’s’ nose to achieve facial harmony and boost self-confidence. Rhinoplasty may be performed for functional rather than cosmetic reasons as well. One of the many reasons people turn to nasal surgery is chronic sinus problems. Millions of people deal with chronic sinus problems, including nasal allergies and sinus congestion. While not all cases need surgery there are some that call for these measures to be taken. In these cases, the cause of these problems are related to anatomical defects, particularly a deviated nasal septum. In these situations, rhinoplasty can alleviate or eliminate the problem.
This type of rhinoplasty, also known as functional rhinoplasty, does not make changes to the external shape or appearance of the nose but rather fixes the internal problems, including a deviated septum or nasal polyps. Some of the symptoms associated with chronic sinus problems that may be treated with a nose job include:
- Facial pain
- Recurring sinus infections
- A blocked nostril(s) that doesn’t respond to treatment
- Loss of sense of taste
- Facial pain or persistent headaches
- Decreased or absent sense of smell
In many cases, surgery is required to reshape the inner structure of the nose to improve breathing. If you desire to also have nostril reshaping, in addition to the rhinoplasty, this is done in the final stage of your nasal surgery.
