Can’t Breathe Through Your Nose? With Rhinoplasty, Beauty Meets Function

Doctor analyzing woman's nose (models)

If you can’t breathe through your nose, that’s a functional problem. If you’re bothered by a nasal hump or a bulbous nose tip, that’s a cosmetic issue. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” can effectively treat both functional and cosmetic concerns.

Rhinoplasty is a versatile procedure that goes beyond aesthetic enhancements. While many people are familiar with its cosmetic benefits, such as refining the nose’s shape, size, or symmetry, rhinoplasty can also include septoplasty to address functional issues affecting breathing and overall nasal health. The procedure can be a valuable tool in correcting nasal defects or deformities resulting from accidents, trauma, or birth conditions.

The infographic below highlights some of the things rhinoplasty can achieve.

INFOGRAPHIC: What Can Rhinoplasty Achieve?

Whether you have a nasal fracture that needs realignment, nasal structures that impede breathing, or a nasal tip that requires reconstruction, rhinoplasty can provide transformative solutions. By combining the artistry of cosmetic surgery with the precision of functional improvements, the procedure can help you achieve a more harmonious nasal appearance while enhancing your overall nasal health and well-being.

In some cases, rhinoplasty is combined with procedures such as chin augmentation to further achieve balance among all facial features.
