Why Rhinoplasty Is about Both Form and Function

Beautiful fresh female face outdoorsPlastic surgery isn’t necessarily just about vanity or wanting to feel better about your appearance. Many procedures are also about improving how your body functions or treating a condition, such as improving obstructed vision or fixing separated muscles. The same goes for a nose job, which can address both aesthetics and function.

The Pretty Part

  • A popular surgical procedure, rhinoplasty can improve bone structure and symmetry, change the size and position of nostrils, smooth bumps and dips in the bridge of your nose, narrow or widen the bridge and reshape the tip of your nose.
  • A nose that is too small, too large or oddly shaped can be a poor fit with your proportions. Finally having a nose that looks great and balances the face can be a confidence boost for many people.

The Functional Part

  • Rhinoplasty is also about crafting a nose that functions well. Dr. Meade can also repair the internal structure of your nose so you can breathe more easily. Whether the cause is genetics or an injury, Dr. Meade can correct a deviated septum, a common cause of impaired breathing and snoring, by restoring it to the proper place directly between your nostrils. Rhinoplasty is also an effective treatment for nasal valve insufficiency, which can obstruct your airway.
