Rhinoplasty (Nose job) is a surgical intervention to correct the shape, structure and functional disorders of the nose. Rhinoplasty may have many different types, which are also known as aesthetic and functional rhinoplasty. So, what do they mean?
What is Aesthetic Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)?
Aesthetic rhinoplasty aim to eliminate deformities related to the shape and/or structure of the nose via surgical interventions. As a matter of fact, a nose that bends or points too much to the left or right, may cause an asymmetrical and undesirable appearance to the other features of the face. Aesthetic rhinoplasty aimed to eliminate aesthetical deformities via surgical interventions. We can list the major nose deformities that may require cosmetic nose surgery as follows:
- Nose asymmetry
- Too big or too small nose size
- Humpy nose
- Excessively large nostrils (alar flaring)
- Droopy tip
- Crooked nose
- Wide alar base (wide alas)
- Collapse of the nose
Causes and Treatment of the Nasal Deformities
As can be seen above, there are many reasons that may require aesthetic rhinoplasty. One may have one of these problems, or more than one. Often, correction of a key area can give results that allow the entire nose to achieve a better balance with eyes, mouth, forehead and other parts of the face. For this reason the nose structure and face of the person should be analyzed well; Aesthetic surgery should be applied according to the person’s nose type.
What is Functional Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)?
Functional nose surgery requires surgical interventions to correct the functions of the nose, such as breathing and to improve the patient’s quality of life. In this respect, it differs from Aesthetic nose surgery which eliminates formal and aesthetic deformities. However, although functional rhinoplasty and cosmetic rhinoplasty appear different from each other, they can be applied simultaneously in some cases. If the person has problems such as breathing through the nose and has complaints about nasal deformities, the plastic surgeon can perform functional and aesthetical rhinoplasty together. In some cases, the patient refers to the aesthetic doctor with only one complaint. However, as a result of the examination, different problems can be revealed and the patient can be offered both aesthetical and functional rhinoplasty together. We can list the main problems that may require functional rhinoplasty as follows:
- Chronic sinus congestion due to severe allergies
- Congestion of the nostrils as a result of the septum deviation
- Large cartilages that can cause problems in the respiratory tract
- Nose polyps
- Nose traumas
- Functional disorders caused by a failed rhinoplasty in the past
