If you are experiencing breathing difficulties or other nasal issues related to the nasal valve, our functional rhinoplasty procedure can help improve your nasal function and enhance your overall quality of life.

Understanding Functional Rhinoplasty

Functional rhinoplasty is a specialized surgical procedure aimed at improving the functionality of the nasal valve. The nasal valve is a critical area responsible for regulating the flow of air into the nasal cavity. When the nasal valve collapses or becomes obstructed, it can lead to breathing problems, chronic nasal congestion, and decreased airflow. Functional rhinoplasty focuses on correcting these structural issues to restore proper nasal function.

Signs and Symptoms

If you are experiencing any of the following signs and symptoms, you may be a candidate for functional rhinoplasty:

  • Difficulty breathing through the nose
  • Chronic nasal congestion
  • Noisy breathing
  • Snoring
  • Recurrent sinus infections
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • Feeling of nasal blockage or obstruction

It is important to note that functional rhinoplasty focuses solely on improving nasal function and does not involve cosmetic changes. If you are also interested in altering the appearance of your nose, our experienced surgeons can discuss the possibility of combining functional rhinoplasty with cosmetic rhinoplasty to address both functional and aesthetic concerns simultaneously.

The Functional Rhinoplasty Procedure

The functional rhinoplasty procedure is tailored to each patient's unique needs and involves a comprehensive evaluation of the nasal structure, airway, and valve function. Our skilled surgeons utilize advanced techniques to correct any structural abnormalities and improve nasal airflow. The procedure may involve:

  1. Internal nasal valve repair
  2. Alar batten graft placement
  3. Nasal septoplasty (if necessary)
  4. Turbinate reduction (if necessary)
  5. Cartilage grafting (if necessary)

Our surgeons work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific concerns and goals. We prioritize patient safety, comfort, and overall satisfaction throughout the entire process.

Benefits of Functional Rhinoplasty

Functional rhinoplasty offers numerous benefits for individuals struggling with nasal valve issues. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Improved breathing and airflow
  • Reduced nasal congestion
  • Elimination of snoring
  • Enhanced sleep quality
  • Decreased risk of sinus infections
  • Restored sense of smell

By addressing the underlying nasal valve problems, functional rhinoplasty can significantly enhance nasal function, leading to improved overall well-being and quality of life.
