Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty or a nose job, is a popular cosmetic procedure amongst men and women because of both its cosmetic and functional corrections. However, its functional purposes are equally or more crucial than its aesthetics. A critical benefit of a nose job is its improvement in the patient’s breathing.
Reconstructive rhinoplasty remedies snoring, sleep apnea, or other respiratory problems, as well as altering the nose structure to remove nasal obstructions. Aesthetx, Campbell’s premier rhinoplasty center, is available to resolve your nose’s breathing and cosmetic issues and are here to help you with your goals.
Good Candidates for Rhinoplasty to Enhance Breathing?
You may be an ideal candidate for functional rhinoplasty if:
- You lose sleep because of snoring or obstructed breathing
- You breathe through your mouth
- You have a deviated septum
- You need cosmetic change and better nose function
Optimal rhinoplasty candidates are also in good general health, are non-smokers, and have realistic expectations of what cosmetic surgery can and cannot do.
How Can Rhinoplasty Help Breathing?
Breathing problems arise from difficulties with the respiratory tract and nasal passage.
Having deviated bone structure or a deviated septum and misaligned nasal cartilage can restrict a clear pathway for breathing. When there is a limited space for air to flow, inhaling and exhaling can become labored. This issue will hinder breathing and make it inefficient and uncomfortable.
Fortunately, rhinoplasty corrects this problem by altering the nasal structure to create an open, clear pathway for unobstructed airflow allowing you to get better quality sleep.
