Worldwide, rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed. Most individuals undergoing the procedure do so for cosmetic purposes. However, there are a signifi-cant number of individuals who undergo rhinoplasty for medical reasons as well. The surgery is often pursued by patients with medical conditions that reduce the efficiency of the normal breathing function of the nose, thus impairing their sleep. Septorhinoplasty surgery, can certainly help improve one’s ability to breathe and sleep better. The correction can also improve the physical symptoms (fatigue, rapid heart beat) associated with the deprivation of sleep.
There are many conditions that can make it difficult for individuals to breathe through their noses. A deviated nasal septum due to a congenital defect, or trauma to the nose can lead to the partial or complete blockage of the nasal passage. The nasal septum is formed from bone and cartilage which can not only be broken, bent and misaligned to cause visible asymmetry, but it can completely block one or both nostrils from functioning well. Abnormalities in the nasal structure can therefore make it difficult to breathe normally through the nose. In these situations, performing a functional septo-rhinoplasty to correct the anatomical irregularities can remove the nasal obstruction and restore the proper breathing function of the nose.
