What Does Rhinoplasty Involve?
Rhinoplasty, more popularly known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of the nose. In some cases, our surgeon is repairing damage to the nose caused by injury. Rhinoplasty can be both functional and cosmetic. The surgery can ease breathing, as well as improve the patient’s looks. Given that, rhinoplasty can involve a variety of procedures or techniques. Our surgeon may repair a broken nose, or he may remove humps or excess bone to make the nose straighter and more proportionate to the patient’s face.
Rhinoplasty in Scottsdale can be either closed or open. Open rhinoplasty gives the surgeon a better view and easier access to the treatment site. Both types are outpatient procedures performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite in Scottsdale.
What is a Septoplasty?
A septoplasty is a specific type of rhinoplasty done to correct a deviated septum. The septum is the wall of bone and cartilage between the two nasal passages. A deviated septum can be caused by either injury or a birth defect. About 80 percent of people have a deviated septum. In most cases, the deviation is so minor that it doesn’t cause any problems. A severely deviated septum, however, can cause breathing difficulties, constant nasal congestion or chronic sinus infections. It can also give the patient a crooked nose.
During a septoplasty, our surgeon will straighten the septum. He may also remove any asymmetrical parts. In many cases, the patient may have other procedures done on their nose to further improve its appearance.
