There are a number of reasons a person considers a nose job or Rhinoplasty. Some have trouble breathing due to a structural abnormality while others simply do not like the way their nose looks due to genetics or injury. Rhinoplasty sometimes coupled with septorhinoplasty can correct the physiological issues as well as bring symmetry to a persons face. Boulder Valley plastic surgeon Dr. Jeff Swail will help you achieve facial harmony and relieve breathing problems associated with a misshaped nose.
The nose has both an aesthetic and a physiological purpose. Physiologically, it is our main avenue through which we breathe. Aesthetically, the nose is a central focus of our face, providing balance and harmony to our facial features. The shape of the nose helps one to breathe properly, so if there are any abnormalities, either because of genetics or prior injury, a person may experience trouble breathing and snoring. In a similar way, when there is injury to the nose or some kind of abnormality the symmetry of ones face can be thrown off. Rhinoplasty procedures can be used to improve the appearance of the nose while septorhinoplasty corrects internal abnormalities.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose or would like to discuss how Rhinoplasty/Septorhinoplasty can help relieve your breathing problems, schedule a consultation with Dr. Swail.
