The nose is a delicate structure on the face. Sitting prominently at the center of our faces, it plays a vital role in regulating our sense of smell, our ability to breathe and how we look. Small deformities or damage to the nose can impair those capabilities as well as skew our facial balance. The rhinoplasty and septorhinoplasty are popular surgical procedures available to address all kinds of matters of the nose.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to enhance the appearance of the nose, whereas the septorhinoplasty can address cosmetic issues as well as functional issues. With the septorhinoplasty, surgery generally focuses on major structures such as the nasal septum and the nasal valve, which can have huge effects on your ability to breathe.
The first step is to consult with an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to determine your exact issues. Each patient is different and each septorhinoplasty procedure needs to be tailored specifically.
