6 Common Reasons to Consider Rhinoplasty Surgery

In Australia, rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures, and there are numerous reasons patients elect to undergo the procedure. For one, rhinoplasty surgery is often used to improve the aesthetics of the nose. Rhinoplasty can reduce the bump on the bridge of the nose, for example, or it can help add volume to the nose.

Yet, rhinoplasty is also commonly performed for medical reasons. For example, a “nasal fracture” rhinoplasty reverses the ill effects of a broken nose, including a crooked bridge or collapsed nostril. Plus, patients also commonly elect to have a “revision rhinoplasty”, a procedure that improves upon a previous nose job and reverses any problems that may have arisen.

At our Sydney clinic, we perform hundreds of rhinoplasty procedures each year. Are you considering a rhinoplasty Surgery? Here are some of the most common reasons why you might elect for the surgery:

  1. Improved Breathing

If you’re having difficulty breathing, rhinoplasty may offer you a solution. For example, a deviated septum – which is crookedness in the nasal cartilage inside the nostrils – can make it difficult to breath and may lead to ailments like sleep apnoea or snoring. A “septoplasty” straightens the nasal cartilage and repairs the deviated septum, which can help improve the flow of air through the nostrils. In addition, chronic sinus infections and the effects of a broken nose – both of which may cause breathing trouble – can both be reversed with rhinoplasty.

  1. Repaired Nasal Foundation

Serious nasal fractures can severely damage the internal structure of the nose. In these cases, nasal fracture surgery is performed to rebuild bone structure, improve symmetry and repair constricted airways.

  1. A Refreshed Appearance

Rhinoplasty is commonly performed to reshape and resize the nose and balance the nose in relation to the patient’s facial features. Some common reasons for this type of nose job include:

  • Reducing a bump on the bridge
  • Straightening a crooked bridge
  • Reducing the size of the nose
  • Improving the nose’s angle
  • Adding volume to the nose

There are a number of reasons people elect for non-medical rhinoplasty. Schedule a consultation with a rhinoplasty surgeon to see how the surgery can benefit you.

  1. Improve Upon Previous Surgeries

Sometimes, patients prefer to improve or correct the results of a previous surgery. Whether a particular area of the nose wasn’t addressed, or the patient was unhappy with the results, revision rhinoplasty helps these patients achieve the results they want. Our practice in New South Wales is very experienced with revision rhinoplasty – this type of procedure accounts for 50 percent of the work that we do.

  1. Treating Chronic Sinus Infections

A special type of rhinoplasty – called Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery – can help restore sinus airflow and treat chronic sinus infections. This type of surgery is used for patients who experience issues caused by problems in the sinuses, including pressure in the face, chronic sinusitis, and chronic nasal congestion. The surgery helps to improve airflow through the sinuses, helping to greatly reduce or eliminate symptoms.
